In the military, I learned that 'leadership' means raising your hand and volunteering for the tough, important assignments.
A leader is one who, out of madness or goodness, volunteers to take upon himself the woe of the people. There are few men so foolish, hence the erratic quality of leadership in the world.
Volunteer activities can foster enormous leadership skills. The nonprofit professional volunteer world is a laboratory for self - realization.
Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected.
The patriot volunteer, fighting for country and his rights, makes the most reliable soldier on earth.
