Srila Prabhupada said:
I was very persistent. All my friends, children, would help me. I was never lazy from my birth, neither dull. Neither to be defeated by anyone. Whatever I would order to my parents or friends must be obeyed. Krsna has always given me leadership. I am surprised how I, a poor Indian, have leadership of the Europeans and Americans. Only my wife did not obey my order, and I left her. I said, 'You must obey me.' She was very afraid of me. Amongst the authors in the world, I am the leader.
