There is no such thing as a 'self made man'. We are made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us, or spoken one word of encouragement to us, has entered into the make-up of our character and of our thoughts, as well as our success.
-George Mathew Adams on Encouragement
You often hear motivational speakers say that you should surround yourself with the right people and I have to agree. I also believe that as leaders we need to take care that we are having the right impact on the people we influence.
