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 — 20 July 2022!

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

“What are the most important principles for leaders to sustain their influence? I would say it’s maturity and character. When it comes to maturity for leaders they need to put the needs of others before themselves and manage their emotions under direst. A leader’s character gives them the ability and discipline to do that! Sustaining character as leaders is about being honest, having integrity at all times, and making good decisions. When challenges arise leaders will be tested for flaws in their character. Character is challenged every day and leaders need to have sustained character strength. Do you possess sustained character strength and display maturity in your leadership?” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
