There have been many discussions on whether leaders are made or born. It is however apparent from the biographies of the world’s distinguished leaders that indeed leaders are made. These individuals underwent so many difficulties, challenges and opposition but emerged as victors at the end. These leaders become strong only by tackling and trying to overcome their weaknesses.
At the end they were able to use their strengths to attain the highest goals that they had set their minds into achieving. The leaders knew themselves, in this way they mastered both their strengths and weaknesses and at the same time improve their character. It is therefore important for anyone who is dedicated to learning to ensure that he comes to terms with his or her personal strengths and weaknesses (Howe, 1997).
