Following a royal swipe yesterday, Umno information chief Annuar Musa said lessons can be learned from both those who are successful and those who are failures.
"There are things to be learned from successful people, and maybe there is a lot to learn from those who are failures too," Annuar said in a Facebook posting today.
He added what is important is to be moderate and be willing to be advised and to give honest and good advise.
This comes a day after Johor crown prince Tunku Ismail Ibrahim took a swipe at the Ketereh MP, saying he does not take advice from leaders who “failed to lead”.
In a later Facebook posting which accompanied a photo of himself with Tunku Ismail, Annuar said those who have failed must be ready to be insulted.
He added it is not impossible for failures to become successes, just as successful people should be ready to fail one day.
The Johor prince had taken aim at the Umno lawmaker after Annuar, who last month resigned as Kelantan Football Association (Kafa) president, advised Tunku Ismail to decide if he wanted to become the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) president and not govern by proxy.
Tunku Ismail had slammed Annuar for leading Kafa into further financial trouble, by using a RM16 million sponsorship by Vida Beauty to hire a foreign coach and foreign players instead of settling the club's debts.
