"If we don’t do the things we are born to do, the things we are able to do and the things that are right to do, we deprive ourselves of the true joy that one gets from the absolute triumph of having helped another human being. That is real leadership. We could achieve so much if we did not care about who takes the credit. - Bonang Mohale
