“What is the first step in the leadership process? First and foremost, knowing who you are. Know your strengths, weaknesses, values, and know how you will impact others. Being self-aware is so important, but it isn’t enough. You must seek feedback from your team and your peers. Getting to know who you are as a leader can be an important first step. Are you ready to take the first step?” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Good morning Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. When I look at today’s topic, I look at where I am now and how I have changed a lot of my thinking. I have now come to believe that if I should look at how God takes a different approach. When I look back over my life, I have come to realize that when I turn to God for guidance, the results of my endeavors turn out much better. The human way doesn’t always work as well as God’s. May y’all have a blessed day today and always, as you consider God, before y’all take that first step.

From the time you are a baby that first step is never easy, but it must be taken.
