After the 1789 French Bourgeois Revolution, there was a character who shook Europe, conquering much of the continent's territory, opening a new era for French history - Napoleon Bonaparte's emperor.
From a boy born on the island of Corsisa, with his arduous childhood as he wrote: 

“I was born when the nation died. Thirty thousand Frenchmen were brought to our shores, it engulfed the throne of freedom into the waves of blood. It was the scene that was the first disgusting thing to hit my eyes. " 

Napoleon became one of the greatest generals of all time with unique strategies in his military art. And it can be seen as the core principles on the path to the success of the leader.

1. Break down the principles and open your own path
"The man is like numbers. They only gain value by their position ”(Napoleon)       
He achieved the number one position in France by destroying the basic principles of the Republic, making himself an emperor and acquiring power over the army. Under the rule of the French Republic, the role of the head of state must be separated from the military. However, Napoleon merged the two powers that governed both the state and the military. Turning organizations into a machine that worked consistently under his direction and direction. Thereby, bringing France into a military power in Europe in his own way without being subject to any power. 

It can be said that people who want to succeed must make a difference. On the front, he always confused the opponent with his constant, bold transformation and innovation tactics. The breakthrough, creativity is the special point in Napoleon's command as he writes, "Imagination ruled the world."

2. Appreciate all components in society
 Napoleon's method of operating the army is seen as a military art. He reconciled traditional elements and reforms in the military. Many different classes of society have the opportunity to join the ranks of officers. Many generals also came from the working and slave classes. 

The fairness of fighting and rewarding was something Napoleon promoted. The army considered him an example to strive for when he was not from the aristocracy when he entered the ranks of French army officers.

3. Pay attention to thinking and education
From a young age, he read many works of great men, until he became an emperor he did not stop reading and finding ways to apply knowledge to his life. And what is special is that he attaches great importance to talent and knowledge. Intelligence and education are important elements in the military. 

Napoleon strictly controlled promotion and promotion criteria, personally selected generals, army commanders and one-third of company-level officers. Bravery and military age are required in theory. However, Napoleon focused on the educational level and the sharp thinking of the commanders.

He built a military culture in accordance with the ambition of soldiers, encouraging the courageous and intelligent actions he believed would help his army succeed. He asked his senior officers to read and read. documents about the campaigns of Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Hannibal, Frederick the Great, ... He makes them look like he always aspires to fight and win.

4. Build absolute loyalty
The whole Europe saw clearly that it could not defeat Napoleon militarily, so it had a political alliance to overthrow him. When Napoleon was not alert, the coalition attacked and defeated Paris. By the beginning of 1814, Napoleon was forced to abdicate and was banished to Elba Island (a small island off Italy). 

The feudal Bourbon court of King Louis XVIII - King Louis XVI's brother back to France began recapturing the land lost during the French Revolutionary Revolution and the throne. However, France became weak and weak. weaken. People and the military always expected Napoleon's return as a dream to return to the golden age of France.

One evening in March 1915, Napoleon secretly crossed the island of Elba, returned to Lyon. Bourbon court sent troops to fight, but all the other troops were praising "the imperial Emperor" and joined Napoleon's army. He did not waste a bullet to return to the emperor's position thanks to the loyalty and admiration of the people and the army.

5. Italy will not back down
He said: "I may fail a battle, but I will win a war." 

Napoleon Bonaparte had a striving from the arduous childhood until the coronation of the emperor. He fought hard for the ideal and France. He has an immortal saying: "The most persistent victory". 

Despite the defeat of the fate of Waterloo fate (Sunday, June 18, 1815), Napoleon's final battle. He was arrested again and exiled to Saint Helena, Napoleon lived the last days of his life (assuming he was poisoned by mercury by a close friend). The mighty French emperor of Europe died on May 5, 1821, when he was only 52 years old. Before he took his last breath, he was still fighting for the last time with the words "France ... Army ... Go on!" "

6. Don't be happy with yourself
Never be safe with "just enough" things that you think are the best. It can be said that Napoleon's glorious career was conceived by him, nurturing an ambition along with his determined, determined efforts. From a low-ranking officer in the French army, stepping onto the throne by assertive, decisive, not shy of opposing forces inside and outside France. And he committed himself to an ideal that brought France into a prosperous power, alone against Europe. 

A dream that few leaders had such boldness and confidence, as he said: "Must want to live and know how to die" And he gave them the pride of an invincible army “Our soldiers must carry within themselves the pride of France, the symbol of religion, the military. It is the power that makes all competitors respect and tame "

7. Respect the results of the process rather than words

He achieved great achievements, believed by the military and the people to be brave and brave in his battle, not as an eloquent politician. He was both a soldier and a king who directly fought on the battlefield, defeating powerful forces. Napoleon's unbending mettle followed him from the siege of Toulon to the defeat of Waterloo.
He was born to lead and fight. So he not only led his army just by words but he was a person of action. As if he was willing to dismount his horse to march with soldiers in order to support the soldiers for the army. And he trained his army from the smallest things to the military tactics of historical stature, both as a result of practical actions that brought success, not military doctrines. theoretical.

8. Be careful with words
Napoleon is always careful of his statements and always considers what he hears "You need to see it all, hear it all and forget it" never promise ". That was the core principle that Napoleon had gained trust from the military. Therefore, they were willing to fight faithfully to death with him. 

Moreover, for downgrades, he also advised to avoid listening to flattery, lest to pick up the painting in the body. "Those who know flattering also know how to slander." say always have to put it in the right place and time, not only that it must be righteous words. Because according to him, the silence of good people is even more frightening than the bad guys' "The world has suffered a great deal. Not from the cruelty of the bad people but because of the silence of good people ” 

Of course, flattery is also a companion of lies: "The lie doesn't do anything because it only deceives once."

9. Mastering emotions
Napoleon once wrote: "A leader is always wrong to talk in anger." Anger sometimes distorts your mind, making you make wrong decisions. This is extremely dangerous for a leader. Letting emotions dominate the work will make you disperse your focus in analyzing the problem you face.

Reason is something that you can realize but besides, a very important part of your life is emotion. 

Sometimes you don't act rationally but follow emotions. Positive emotions can help you be optimistic and happy in life, but having negative emotions can easily destroy your relationships, and sometimes hurt yourself.
