Having the quality of leadership is to be one who shows others the way by example and encouragement, regardless of their position. Heroes do not wait to take advantage of the opportunities of life, nor wait to help others. Boldly setting an example of righteousness makes it easier for all around to also do what is right. By making it easier for others to do the right thing we also make it easier for them to succeed; and thus by leading we serve, and by serving we lead. We do not need to wait until we are told to do the right thing. Heroes of Areté seize the initiative with every chance we get.
