Sitting on the fence?

Sitting on the fence?
As a child, he was unhappy and neglected. Not only that, he was bad at school. Also, he had to deal with multiple attacks of depression throughout his life. With such an unfortunate and unfavorable childhood, can you imagine that he became a remarkable leader one day?
Despite all of these ill-fated experiences, he had found out that he was a gifted speaker. In his first speech as prime minister, he addressed the Parliament with the following words: “I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat”. Also, he inspired his coworkers and fellow citizens: “… we shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.” He’s one of the most renowned Brits who led his country from the brink of defeat to victory during the Second World War.
Who is he? Sir Winston Churchill! Was he a perfect person? Definitely not. Was he a great leader? The answer is affirmative. Although I don’t know much about this great man, one thing I can be sure of is that he is not a leader who sits on the fence. In his life, he had made many good decisions, as well as numerous mistakes. Churchill was an exceptional leader with unique perspectives.
Life is full of decisions. Sitting on the fence won’t do us any good! We cannot sit on the fence all the time! Like it or not, we have to make the necessary choices. Therefore, we must equip ourselves with the right knowledge and attitude so that we would have the appropriate standpoints in decision-making.
