Few Leaders - Others Just Pretending!

“There is no such thing as a perfect leader, either in the past or present, in China or elsewhere. If there is one, he is only pretending, like a pig inverting spring onions into his nose in an effort to look like an elephant.” —Liu Shao-Chi — Which means we must consistently strive to improve ourselves”.
Realizing that there aren't many strive for improvement, the above stuck me hard! Does it mean that leaders around us are just pretending?
To me, One can improve only if he has the realization about self-accountability, and courage to take criticism in a positive manner.
There aren't many who can describe things that they should not be doing as leaders!
Continuous improvement is the key challenge for leaders..... only few meet this challenge...... so there are only few leaders, others are just pretending!
