What Nelson Mandela had to say about leadership
Rich Hua stashed this in Leadership
"A winner is a dreamer who never gives up."
“Real leaders must be ready to sacrifice all for the freedom of their people.” - Mandela
“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” - Mandela
This is one of my favorite scenes from Invictus, when Mandela discusses the idea of true leadership with Francois, the captain of the South African rugby team. It's totally awesome.
"How do we inspire ourselves to greatness when nothing less will do?"
"We need inspiration, Francois, because in order to build our nation, we must all exceed our own expectations."
Rich, great movie!
I have a few favorite Nelson Mandela lines, too:
And then I love this montage:
I love those quotes! The montage is totally amazing. Blow my mind.
Mine too! Glad you liked that -- it was a rare find. Never know what Bing is going to surface...
