“The first key to leadership is self-control.”
Jack Weatherford, Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World

“If you can't swallow your pride, you can't lead. Even the highest mountain had animals that step on it.”
Jack Weatherford, Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World

“The first key to leadership was self-control, particularly the mastery of pride, which was something more difficult, he explained, to subdue than a wild lion and anger, which was more difficult to defeat than the greatest wrestler. He warned them that "if you can't swallow your pride, you can't lead.”
Jack Weatherford, Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World
