Today’s Message is: “Mirror and Shadow Day!” Why Not?


“If you want a better understanding of your leadership strengths and weaknesses look at yourself in the mirror. Know that you can operate effectively by starting with that reflection in the mirror. Reveal the leader in you. A leader that keeps his head down and is a good follower, stays in the shadows to hide from risk and they don’t lead!” —COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Good leaders surround themselves with those that are not afraid to tell them the truth. Especially in moments when the truth is hard and hurts

Good “Thursday!” Morning “my Brothers and Sisters from a crystal clear day with beautiful blue skies and a mild early Fall day here in the Greater Boston Area...


The “Colonel’s” VFV Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day is a good one and his message is: “Mirror and Shadow Day!” Here is my Personal Quote:


"A mirror provides a reflection of what it "sees" in front of it. It is how one looks into the mirror that determines whether the mirror is reflecting a positive image or a negative one." - Kerry F. Harkins - October 7, 2021


And here are my message selections:


"Everybody else needs mirrors to remind themselves who they are. You're no different." - Jonathan Nolan.

Love your quote, there are times when it may be wise to hide in the shadows, usually when that is when that poor leader is around, but in general a leader should use that mirror before taking any action.
