How I Found Freedom from Fear

I don't remember how the speeches went off, either his or mine. But I do remember how happy I was, and how wonderful the whole occasion seemed. Most of all I remember the advice of the man who generously gave a frightened, unattractive child his secret for getting over discomfort by losing self in helping a stranger.
I've used his secret thousands of times; I've watched it work with all kinds of strangers; and increasingly I've been grateful to the man who gave it to me. I often wished I could remember who he was so that I could tell him of my gratitude.
Recently I had to dispose of an atticful of valueless treasures and trivia hoarded through the years. In a box with a few old letters I found the Commencement Day Program of Eastern High School, Washington, D. C. It has a blue-and-silver seal on the front, and a line which says:
Commencement Address, by the Honorable Franklin D. Roosevelt, Assistant Secretary of the Navy.
It is too late now for me to tell him of my gratitude. But I can pass along his secret to help others, as he passed it along to me.

The High Price of Leadership
THERE is a single reason why 99 of Ioo average businessmen never become leaders. That is their unwillingness to pay the price of responsibility. By the price of responsibility I mean hard, driving, continuous work ... the courage to make decisions, to stand the gaff ... the scourging honesty of never fooling yourself about yourself. You travel the toad to leadership heavily laden. While the nineto-five-o'clock worker takes his ease, you are "toiling upward through the night." Laboriously you extend your mental frontiers. Any new effort, the psychologists say, wears a new groove in the brain. And the grooves that lead to the heights are not made between nine and five. They are burned in by midnight oil.
