What makes a leader?
I think a leader is someone who’s genuinely committed to lifting up everyone around them. It takes a lot of patience & self-control, intuition & foresight, and a great work ethic. You have to be brave enough to trust that people will believe in you & what you’re trying to accomplish, and know you can’t do whatever that is all by yourself.
“Ultimate simplicity equals purity.”
