Maria VegaProf. Shindell July 14, 2010LeadershipNever Give In: The Best of Winston Churchill's Speeches Yet, Churchill’s zeal for doing grew out of mere physical drive.Action, was his philosophy of life. He believed instinctively that men’saffairs tend toward decline apart from bold and decisive action. Forhim, passivity and neglect were sins. Things are only improved byaction, by taking matters in hand and “doing something.” “I neverworry about action,” he said, “only about inaction.” (Page 71)What was his secret?

He was not known for his physical characteristics; hewas recognized for his non-conformist mentality. He spoke what hethought was the truth even if it meant confronting others beliefs andadmirations.
