You Don't Need to Fall First before You Could Learn

Some people believe that they need to fall first and make follies and mistakes before they could stand up, learn, and be strong. Sometimes, valid.

However, it's not the only way to learn or to be strong.


Because, there are individuals who remain strong and focused and responsible without the need to make serious follies or mistakes in their lives to begin with. You can actually learn from the mistakes of others without you yourself having to experience them first, especially if such mistakes are utterly stupid in the first place--like taking drugs, trying to drunk-drive, or engaging in peer-pressured bullish pranks on others.

A good leader or a good teacher does not always have to be someone who was a former bad person who decided to turn his life around. If given the choice between a bad-person-turned-good and a good person since the start, I'll choose the latter anytime.
