Today’s Message is: “Poise Day!” Why Not?


“How many times as a leader have you heard ‘Poise Under Pressure?’ When a leader has balance, composure, and strong bearing in the face of obstacles they have poise. When the 'Fit is about to hit the Shan!’ take a deep breath, give yourself a pep talk, and check your emotions at the door. Remember you’re fine, you’re okay, and you’ve got this!” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Good morning Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. Poise is a difficult gift for some and yet others display it so easily. Why is that? I think that I found an answer, in a rather strange place for me. I have never really understood or even really tried to get to know the source of the below link, but I found it to be very much in agreement with my understanding of the nature of God. I hope that you enjoyed and embrace the concept that is contained therein. Have a Poised and blessed day today and always.

Another time when you used this quote but it's just too appropriate to not use again. Can't tell you how many times I've had to fall back to that "7 Ps" thing.
