“Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.”
Winston Churchill, George Washington, Martin Luther King, Margret Thatcher, King David, Ronald Reagan, General MacArthur, Oliver Cromwell, and Genghis Khan. While they may have been separated by thousands of miles, or even centuries, all of them had one thing in common; good or bad, they each personified strong leadership qualities. Some leaders carry titles like Founder, President, Prime Minister, or General, but other leaders carry titles like CEO, Principal, business owner, or parent. Whoever you are and however big your sphere of influence, you have the ability to do great things and impact the lives of those around you.
“Each of us can serve as a leader. And one leader creates another and another, ad infinitum, just as one candle’s flame lights another and another, until the once-impenetrable darkness has turned to brilliant light.”
