Chapter 2. My Meeting with a Leadership Mentor
The days come and go like muffled and veiled figures sent from a distant friendly party but they say nothing. And if we don't use the gifts they bring, they carry them silently away. By Ralph Waldo Emerson
One day, the old man came to him and talked a while about a leadership. That old man's name was Tommy who was his daddy's friend. He raised the concept about LWT which is Lead Without Title. Leadership has nothing to do with what you get or where you sit. Leadership's a lot more about how brilliantly you work and how masterfully you behave. Which means you don't have to have a title to be a leader. You just need to be a living human being. It became all about being the best I could be every day at work. The average life has only 960 months and only 29000 days which not too long to live as a human being. After explaining the importance of the LWT, the mentor Tommy brought Blake to other teachers who are the real-life experienced people.

Success is created through the performance of a few small daily disciplines that stack up over time to produce achievements far beyond anything you could have ever planned for. Failure, on the other hand, is just as easy to slip into. Failures are nothing more than the inevitable outcome of a few small acts of daily neglect performed consistently over time so that they take you past the point of no return.

Chapter 5. The Second Leadership Conversation: Turbulent Times Build Great Leaders
I will persist until I succeed. I was not delivered into this world into defeat, nor does failure course my vein. I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd. I am a lion, and I refuse to talk, walk, and to sleep with the sheep. I will persist until I succeed. By Og Mandino

Chapter 8. Conclusion
At the end of the book the mentor Tommy has died and sent a letter to Blake by the other teachers. Made him inspirational and left Porsche which was Blake's dream car. I have briefly included the acronyms such as IMAGE, SPARK, HUMAN, and SHINE which have their own clear meaning. Based on the acronyms anyone can have deep thoughts about success and leadership. It is not only about leadership in the career but it has meaning about leading without a title which simply about is being best in your life wherever you are.
