It's the acts that make us extraordinary. You don't have to be Nelson Mandela or Martin Luther King to be remarkable and unique. Everyone in their own way can be passionate and follow their dreams. You are defined by your acts. Leadership is the courage shown by ordinary people to follow and pursue their passion and dreams.
