Yes, I agree that we can improve ourselves by following what our role models have done or reading from some magazines and books. Have we ever suspects the genuine of the actions done by our role models? Have we ever suspects the genuine of knowledge from the books and magazines? Are we sure that we are following the right thing, right people and right trend? Are we sure that we get all the correct information? I have the doubt to differentiate what is right or wrong sometimes in various perspectives.
How about we train ourselves to become role model for our community? When we are one of the role models, should we do something which is good for everyone in the community? How do we know that we are doing the right thing or wrong thing?
We must go through the following steps, S.T.E.F. in order to determine the right things that we should do and the wrong things that we should avoid. "See, Think, Enlighten, then Follow (S.T.E.F.)!”
"See, Think, Enlighten, then, Follow (S.T.E.F.)!”
