There have been many leaders throughout history that have inspired me. I think Reagan is a very good choice, some of his writings are very powerful. But I think if I had to pick just one leader who was charismatic and prolific I would have to choose John F. Kennedy.
One of my favorite quotes is; Do not wish for easier lives, wish to be stronger men. That simple phrase spoke to me in such a powerful way that I live my life by it. I do not complain when times get tough, I only figure out what I need to do to fix it. Period.
