Today's Message is: "Actions Day!" Why Not?

The “Colonel’s” VFV Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day!


Good “Monday!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome to the start of the new week from the “Colonel’s Foxhole” in The Woodlands, TX — 13 June 2022!


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


“There are many things that can be said about a leader’s actions, but only a few that speak louder than words. The positive action a leader takes today will have a ripple effect on the people they lead and the organization. Some actions will inspire and motivate for a lifetime. Others for a moment in time, but a crucial moment that may save lives. If leaders want to be seen, instead of just heard, then there must be passion in their demeanor, encouragement in their stride, confidence in their eye contact, and a clear path toward a vision. Those are just a few of the actions taken by true leaders. What actions will you take today as a leader?” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Good afternoon Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. Wow, what a day! I have tried more than 10 times to respond to today’s message, but it wouldn’t let me post. My perseverance has paid off. LOL I would like to say that what we say verses what we do does more disappoint people, but it also breaks God’s heart. If we were look at how God works, we can then try to emulate Him. Have a blessed day today and always.

Thank you Mikel, my friend. We will be staying inside much of the day because the heat index is supposed to be between 105-115. Blessings.

I've always been a firm believer in the concept of watching what people do, not necessarily what they say.
