A leader must listen to himself... to his inner voice of direction, strength and conviction. When this voice is not heard he drifts aimlessly through seas of fear and doubt. When this voice is heard and not followed he betrays himself and those around him.
A leader does have fears, doubts and failures - and conquers them. The inner voice is the foundation which holds firm against the waves of resentment and resistance.
A leader places himself aside so that the needs of others may prevail. He is gentle, strong, confident and unyielding as needed, always following the tune of his inner voice.
A leader knows fulfillment when he lives the freedom of the soaring eagle.
