The “Colonel’s” VFV Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day!
Good “Saturday!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome to the weekend from the “Colonel’s Foxhole” in The Woodlands, TX — 4 June 2022!
Today’s Message is: “Humble Day!” Why Not?
“As a leader I’ve always tried to be as humble as possible because it’s the people that you lead that need to know that you’re approachable. They know you will admit your failures and be forgiving for their mistakes, and find ways to make sure neither happens again. I’ve always given recognition to all the people that help me and the organization become successful. This in itself, motivated and inspired others to share ideas and work toward a vision and purpose. I carried that humble demeanor into the nonprofit world after leaving the service and I know that trust — earning it, giving it, and building it is the foundation of my leadership and I will continue to work with humility and treat others with respect. Honor and Respect Always – Warriors for Life” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
