A leader is a person that commands or leads a group. Or that is what is the dictionary says. On the other hand it doesn’t matter if you lead the group, you have to have the responsibility and have the determination to be a successful leader. Just because a person is in charge doesn’t mean the are a leader. Hitler was called a leader and he was but was he a good one? No, he had so many people killed just because she did not like the way they looked. What kind of leader is this? To be an effective leader you have to be persuasive and you have to lead the group in the direction to make things better for the group as a whole. You don’t have to do everything the leader does. If you do not feel that it is the right thing to do, why do it? Be your own leader and use your own judgments to lead you.

“Taken on the whole, I would believe that Gandhi’s views were the most enlightened of all the political men of our time. We should strive to do things in his spirit: not to use violence for fighting for our cause, but by non-participation of anything you believe is evil.” — Albert Einstein, 1950
