The World Needs Leaders...

Leading the Way by Paul Borthwick, Navpress, 1989, pp. 19-20

1. who cannot be bought;

2. whose word is their promise;

3. who put character above wealth;

4. who possess opinions and a will;

5. who are larger than their vocations;

6. who do not hesitate to take chances;

7. who will not lose their individuality in a crowd;

8. who will be honest in small things as well as in great things;

9. who will make no compromise with wrong;

10. whose ambitions are not confined to their own selfish desires;

11. who will not say they do it "because everybody else does it";

12. who are true to their friends through good report and

13. evil report, in adversity as well as in prosperity;

14. who do not believe that shrewdness, cunning, and hardheadedness are the best qualities for winning success;

15. who are not ashamed or afraid to stand for the truth when it is unpopular, who can say no with emphasis, although the rest of the world says yes.
