True humility is a sign of confidence. Fake humility is a sign of pride.
Cockiness is a sign of insecurity and weakness. Self-confidence is a sign of the strength of character.
Confident people have fought some battles, lost a few and learned from them. Cocky people only boast about the ones they won.
Don't let people fool you. If we are going to lead well, we must take the time needed to learn how to comprehend challenging books and challenging people.
Knowledge is only powerful when it can be comprehended and deception is the culprit in every downfall.
Every leader who would be great will fall before they fail.
The fall is always private, but oh how public the failure.
