Real leaders

Only the mediocre die always at their best. Real leaders are always improving, and raising their bar on how superbly they can perform and how quickly they can move.
-Jean Giraudoux

Breaking fear

You need to actually move closer to the place you most fear instead of pulling back from it. The fear you move through when you go to the edge of your limits actually causes your limits to expand.
-Character Ty Boyd in The Leader Who Had No Title
