" People will only reach as high as the standard is set. It is the leader's duty to set the standard high, and then to come behind them to help them reach that standard. This is true motivation and true leadership!"
Rev. Travis J. Hedrick --- Submitted by Juli H. --- Washington
The reality that people will only achieve the highest standard that is set is true. What is even more true is that while the leader sets the standard, they must be willing to help others reach it too.

" True leaders produce their successors."
Written in 2009 by Tom Russo Jr. --- Texas
I believe that I have been fortunate to have several great leaders in my life that have helped shape me into the person I am. Their true measure of success has been through all of the people they have taught along the way to be just as successful.

" Those who are victorious plan effectively and change decisively. They are like a great river that maintains its course but adjusts its flow... they have form but are formless.

They are skilled in both planning and adapting and need not fear the result of a thousand battles; for they win in advance, defeating those that have already lost."
Sun Tzu --- Submitted by Matthias Schmelz --- Portugal

" Be ready to PAY and then you PLAY. First you take PAIN then you make a GAIN. The law of nature is that first you SOW and then you REAP. You SOW LESS and REAP MORE. If one defies this law of nature and makes a GAIN before taking the PAIN, then one passes through more PAIN than the GAIN made."

One should believe in the law of nature and faithfully undertake the tasks to reach his dreams and goals. Dreams do come true ONLY if one has paid the price first and sowed before reaping. Since price has to be paid anyway - it is better to pay first and play later instead of play first and pay later.

" Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership."

" During a personal lecture with an instructor, I was told that 'Great Minds Think Alike'. I pondered that for a while and replied, 'Great Minds Think For Themselves!'"
Written in 2009 by Matthew Alcala --- California
People need to learn how to be more original. Everyone is following the footsteps of the older generation but they need to come up with new, more advanced ideas to express our advancement in technology as well as education. Take advantage of the education that you receive because not everyone gets it.

It presents the teacher and the taught as equal partners in the quest for knowledge and puts them on the same pedestal.

" If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination.
