The Bible says:
Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm. Proverbs 13:20
Have you ever thought where the wise and fools lead you? Would you have a wise person lead you? Or a fool? When you choose a mentor or leader, ask yourself is this person wise or foolish. The place the person is now should tell you rather they are wise or fools. Have they reach their goals? Do they consistently fail? Do they engage in crime? Or stay out of trouble? Do they pick themselves up and keep moving down the road? The wise can give you wisdom as you go. Fools just lead you into folly down the road.
