Can you offer advice for young men who want to be leaders?
To be a good leader means that one can inspire others to follow your good example, willingly and cheerfully. There are many required qualities that young leaders must have. I think it is very important to have a sense of humanism in any enterprise where one wants to lead his people. To develop that, the young men who want to be leaders have to learn deeply from the past.
