Self-mastery tells us that we should not let what we cannot control, control us, but instead master it and use it to our advantage. Even though things begin to look out-of-control, remind yourself that as an effective leader you should think of these situations as “opportunities rather than an obligation” (Sanborn, 2006, p. 29).

Success does not equate wealth and notoriety. Anyone who lives his life in a way that contributes positively to the general population is a success.

I believe that this has caused the misconception that formal education is essential for individual development, when it is only a useful part of a full repertoire of skills and knowledge for a successful and developed individual. To me, being “developed” means that it enables one to succeed in their environment. Formal education is without a doubt meaningful and convenient for anyone that takes it seriously, but it is by no means “essential” for the development of individuals. There are far too many situations and circumstances where success and development occurs from experiences that aren’t exactly “formal” for it to be deemed essential. Formal education is essential if all members of society are the exact same, but in reality more important factors include the specific individual, their personality, attitude, mindset, and societal situations.
It isn’t society’s duty to ensure everyone’s happiness, but rather to ensure that all people are given the opportunity to be happy.

Reasonable and moderate versions of both theories really warrant the same action in most cases; for example, giving to charity and avoiding unfairly produced goods. The differences in suggested action only emerge in a few unique situations; the real distinction is in the underlying beliefs supporting the two theories. Deontology promotes a fair opportunity at happiness and self-advocacy, whereas Utilitarianism’s objective is the promotion of happiness.
No matter what cause your leading you must be able to other to not only follow but believe in you and your cause. Inspire then so that they see the same goal/dream as you. You can invite other in by being genuine, original, new, or having the ability to put a fresh spin on old issues. No one wants to hear the same old solution for every problem. People are willing to try new and daring thing if they have the right leadership, this is why inspire so vital to good leadership.
Although some people might see others as leaders, based on certain traits or intellectual traits, leadership is all about influencing followers to attain goals.

Everybody has the right to be happy at their own expense but still people who want happiness on others expense. I personally think the real right to happiness should not be at others’ expenses, even if it is going to make you give up some of your right to happiness. The objective of our life is to take positive steps towards the happiness. We need to identify and learn those factors that lead to happier life. It is our duty to search the happiness for ourselves, families and for community.

As long as everyone has this same feeling towards progress on the whole then the community will continue to grow. People today see the world in a more Darwinist point of view.

I found this to be wrong whilst reading the book and article. The truth behind the scientific method is it is ever changing and cannot be simplified down to a step by step process. The creativity and ingenuity required by it is high. Investigating something and proving it are difficult and require time, conviction, and a lot of interest in your work. I discovered there is more to what I learned in grade school than I could have imagined.

To conclude, Postman's analysis that Huxley's vision of the future has become more of a reality than that of Orwell's.
