Top 10 Ways to Unlock Your Leadership Potentials

The following story is based on Toastmaster, July 08 issue.

The trainer asked his audience :
"Did the Wright brothers ever quit" "No" shouted the trainees.
"Did Walt Disney ever quit" "No" the same reply.
"Did Lance Armstrong ever quit" " No" it got louder.
"Did Tom McKester ever quit". There was a confused silent. Finally a trainee asked "Who in the world is Tom McKester" Nobody heard of him.
The trainer nailed it " Of course you have never heard of him - that's because he quit!".

There is no mystery in leadership. Leaders are both born and made!

lesson #1 One simple and yet vital aspect of leadership is the ability to persevere.
