Think about it. Why is it that you follow a certain individual, mentor or leader?
It's because they give you hope!
The belief that you can succeed, reach a goal or just acomplish something meaningful.
The key is to find the best of the best to follow, the big thinkers, the risk takers. The ones who will get you out of your comfort zone.
They'll get you where you want to go the fastest.
"A leader is a dealer in hope" -- Napoleon Bonapart
