The birth of a child is the joy of a father, but sons are His pride.
Children are reared, but sons are raised.
So, also, followers are reared, but leaders are raised.
You feed followers, but you develop leaders.
Sons are pillars of the family, children are blocks built around the pillars.
Blocks may give way to storms and other harsh weather conditions but not so for pillars.
Every wise leader goes beyond rearing children to raise sons.
True leaders spend more time replicating and duplicating more leaders.
That is the only way to extend their impact.
Raising sons is raising pillars.
Raising sons is preparing for the future.
