The “Colonel’s” VFV Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day!
Good “Thursday!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome to the end of another month from the “Colonel’s Foxhole” in The Woodlands, TX — 30 June 2022!
Today’s Message is: “Explain Day!” Why Not?
“Real leaders never explain away their mistakes or missteps with an excuse or denial. Real leadership demands real character and taking personal responsibility for decisions and mistakes. It takes the courage to hold oneself responsible for one’s actions and tell the truth. Real leaders hold others accountable for their actions as well. If you lead by example you will never have to explain yourself away and keep making up excuses. Don’t take yourself away from reaching your full potential with a new excuse!” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
