Angelus' Quote: Great Leaders Are Intelligent Followers

Napoleon Hill, the father of the self-help movement, in his classic book, Think and Grow Rich, writes this on leadership:

"Broadly speaking, there are two types of people in the world. One type is known as 'leaders' and the other as 'followers.' Decide at the outset whether you intend to become a leader in your chosen calling, or remain a follower. The difference in compensation is vast. The follower cannot reasonably expect the compensation to which a leader is entitled, although many followers make the mistake of expecting such pay.

There is nothing wrong being a follower. On the other hand, it is no credit to remain a follower. Most great leaders began in the capacity of followers. They became great leaders because they were intelligent followers. With few exceptions, the man who cannot follow a leader intelligently, cannot become an effective leader. The man who can follow a leader most efficiently is usually the man who develops into leadership most rapidly. An intelligent follower has many advantages, among them the opportunity to acquire knowledge from his leader."
