Answer by Mike
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or how the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who, if he wins, knows the triumph of high achievement, and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt

dunno whatcha mean by definitions…

    Leadership is activity by which people become aware of ways to accomplish their desired goals, affirm values which they cherish, and to develop new values and goals which are in greater accord with their current capacities and ultimate potentials.

    A leader is best when people barely know that he exists, not so good when people obey and acclaim him, worst when they despise him. Fail to honor people, They fail to honor you. But of a good leader, who talks little, when his work is done, his aims fulfilled, they will all say, “We did this ourselves.” ~ Laozi

    ~ Laozi

    You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
