Good “Tuesday!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome from the “Colonel’s Foxhole” in The Woodlands, TX — 28 June 2022!

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

“How do Leaders overcome obstacles? They overcome obstacles by facing them head-on! Tough times and challenges build strong leaders. They learn from the struggles, they build resilience, and they learn from their mistakes. Leaders navigate through obstacles with a positive attitude and those hard times increase their growth and knowledge. Knowledge is power and solving problems in spite of adversity builds an attitude of hope, confidence, and optimism for leaders. How do you face and overcome obstacles?” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
