Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Coastal Estates CalDRE#01362347

A junior in high school was filling out an application for her first choice school - a small, private and prestigious college - when she came across a unique questions: Are you a leader? 


She considered the question carefully and then decided to be radically honest. Her answer was "No." She was afraid that because of that answer, the college would reject her application. After a few weeks, she received unusually rapid feedback in the form of a letter from the school that read: 


"Dear Candidate, 


We would like to inform you that this year we have already reviewed more than 800 applications. So far, there will be some 432 new leaders attending our program next year. We are happy to inform you that we have accepted your application because we feel it is important that these new leaders have at least one follower." 


The best student is often someone who admits they still have a lot left to learn.
