The “Colonel’s” VFV Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day!
Good “Saturday & 911 Anniversary!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome from the “Eagle’s Nest” on the road in Amarillo, TX! — 11 September 2021!
**On the road back to The Woodlands on the Harley as we remember that 20 years ago today on 9/11 this country was viscously attacked by terrorist! Let’s never forget those brave and innocent people that perished that day!**
Today’s Message is: “Posturing Day!” Why Not?
“People who are desk jockeys, arm share quarterbacks, and ‘wannabes’ leaders use posturing on social media and throughout life, and they growl and sniff around each other. If you want to be the real thing and have the right stuff as a leader, then get out from behind your desk, and get up out of your easy chair, and quit flashing your educational degrees; jump into the foxhole with your people, get your hands dirty, and have real professional conversations with your people at all levels. People are fed up with closed door policies, bullies that posture with words, and try to be real leaders – they never will!” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
