Everlasting dilemma of old but also today’s philosophers, is the leader born or is he made? Is there something in DNA that determines who will be the leader and who will not (no matter how much he tries in life)?
When we look on this human world of ours we see that throughout history there were people the used their leading abilities for the good of the mankind, and sometime they literally destroyed mankind. Will they go in one or in other direction depends on, ability of the leader, of which I would like to discuss- depends on self-control.
Is self-control born with or acquired quality? It is likely that is acquired. Knowing yours and others limitations-possibilities are already and enormous success for the leader and taking accounts not to overlook them. Biggest leaders are those people that manage to restrain their power and privileges that they have. No matter how easy this looks to you, believe me it is not. That is confirmed by numerous world philosophers. There is a thin line between good leader and pathological autocrats and dictator. They say that big Julius Caesar in the time of his greatest power paid a wise man to always be beside him and tells him: Calm down, you are just a man…” Unfortunately not everyone was like Julius Caesar. Such leaders with their behavior and actions created a large damage to their state and their people. Which 10 craziest leaders have found their place in this top lists, you can see in this attachment.
