“A leader does not deserve the name unless he is willing occasionally to stand alone.” — Henry Kissinger

This is a true test of leadership and character. Remember our definition of character: the inward motivation to do what’s right regardless of the circumstances, and regardless of the costs…
Many times the cost that a leader has to pay is the loneliness that comes from “standing alone.” It is a price we must be willing to pay if we are going to take the “path of most resistance” – the path of leadership.
