Today’s Message is: “Pick Me Up Day!” Why Not?


“How do leaders provide a lift? Some of the very best leaders can sense a lack of motivation in others when things get rough. There will always be ups and downs and negative situations facing a leader. Sometimes the whole team will need a pick-me-up to get them motivated and inspired. Motivation has to be ongoing and even the most inspired team will need a ‘pick-me-up’ every once in a while. Inspirational leaders are always positive. They keep lines of communication open, give recognition when it’s due, measure performance on a regular basis, help others grow, and make the most stressful or boring task fun. Are you being a positive leader and you keep your team inspired and motivated over the long term?”— COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Good afternoon Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. Sorry for the late response today. I have to say that in my life,I have been in situations that it took God to pick me up and set me straight. I’m sure that I’m not the only one. I can truly trust that God will always be there for me, even in my most trying times. I’m confident that if you trust the Lord, that he will be there for you as well. I hope that y’all enjoy the link that I have provided below. Have a blessed evening today and always.

Say what you want, but between my military and civilian careers there is no doubt in my mind that if you want to pick your team up, food is involved.
