TOO SHORT, TOO YOUNG, TOO INEXPERIENCED
Napoleon Bonaparte was named commander of the French forces in 1776, and he wasn't welcomed by his troops. They found him too short, too young, and too inexperienced to be a leader, and they were already losing hope in fighting for the ideals of the French Revolution. After a few weeks of being unable to motivate them, Napoleon decided to propel them into action. He brought them to a bridge he knew he could easily win, and rode to the front of his men. He gave them a rousing speech and then propelled them forward to a relatively effortless victory. After that day, Napoleon had his men's full attention.
