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 — 11 June 2022!


Today’s Message is: “Meant to Be Day!” Why Not?


“There are many types of great and influential leaders in the world, from yesterday’s past to the present! Many leaders learn from those throughout history, and there will be great new leaders in the future! The key question is how does one become the leader ‘He or She’ wants to be? Understand this: It’s up to each ‘Leader’ to seriously assess what type of leader they are meant to be! First, gain awareness on how to be ‘present and in the moment’ around others one leads. Second, determine the ‘unknowns’ that are holding one back from writing a unique and inspiring leadership story! Each leader must repeatedly plan and pave the way for success, understand one’s unique strengths, repair one’s weaknesses, and become a better version of themselves. Have you become the leader you were meant to be?” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

It Wasn’t Meant To Be

BY ·

33 SHARES ‘It wasn’t meant to be’ is the most soul destroying statement I have ever heard! I hear this statement from people over and over again and they often use it with regards to any situation that has not gone the way they had planned or hoped. They put it down to some superior force controlling their lives not allowing them to experience themselves as the glorious creators that they are. Someone said this to me…

Good Saturday afternoon Colonel. Would ha been on earlier but my 2001 truck radiator cracked on me. Was able to make it to a garage, but had to leave it and walk home with my young granddog. Thankfully just a bit over a mile.

Beginning to think Covid tests are a forever meant to be. Have a procedure in the hospital on Monday and had to get a Covid test this morning.

I'm not a big believer in destiny, what is meant to be is what we make it.

Bella and I went so long not getting COVID with all of the things we're involved in and things I do with Victory for Veterans, Inc and the other nonprofits I support, but I guess it was meant to be that we both got it and have been down since 31 May 2022... We are both negative now though and just getting our energy back. I also believe that if its meant to be we have a hand in that brother. Thanks for the quote my friend. Have a great weekend Jack!
