PM Quote of the Day — Gautama Buddha

It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles.  Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.

How can we lead others without mastery of self?  Speaking for myself, I cannot lead others without at least some control over the “tyranny of self”. 

Self-mastery is a grand goal, so we should start with self-knowledge.  A great first step is to understand what one can and cannot control.
