Because you don’t know everything. You can learn from someone else’s experience and mistakes ( or at least know what to look out for) and understand how things came to be the way they are now.

In the end it is your career and your life. You are going to have to make the decisions using the best and complete information you have at the time.
Being your best is about holding yourself to a higher standard and realising your full potential. We all have the need for belonging, and this need is met by pushing ourselves to a moderate level of achievement based on the society we live. Should we be letting other people set the pace for our success, or lack thereof?. Do you tend to base your own potential on the potential of the ‘the crowd’, and see those success as exceptions? Perhaps it is time to compare our potential and ability to the only person who really matters by leading ONESELF.
There is nothing wrong with striving to become a better person. There are those who fear they will become one of those people who act like they are ‘too good’ for others , or have a ‘holier than thou’ attitude. You are not , nor ever will be, better than any anyone else besides the person you are now. You will not only have a greater respect for all others, but they will have a greater respect for you as well.
