Selflessness - Deepstash


A great leader is the leader who gets happiness from seeing others being rewarded for their hardwork. Their leadership is not based on titles or position or power, their influence on people is not because of their money or power or connections.

They define their success on the basis of the positive influence they have on people and the impact their actions have on other people.

A great leader brings out the true potential in others
