The “Colonel’s” VFV Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day!


Good “Sunday!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome from the “Colonel’s Foxhole” in The Woodlands, TX — 28 August 2022!


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


“How do leaders ‘hustle’ to make things happen? Leaders who work with a sense of urgency and give their all, can eliminate obstacles, overcome challenges, and deliver mission success. Leaders who have that ‘peep in their step’ or what we call ‘hustle’ are proactive and decisive leaders. They will set the tempo and lead by example, with drive and focus. Leaders who have ‘hustle’ will boost morale and engage with team members from beginning to end in order to accomplish the mission. Hustle is a mindset – do you have the ‘hustle’ to keep up with change, to adapt and to overcome?” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

As we get older the ‘hustle’ does get a little slower, but inside my fire is still burner on high Jack!

Good morning Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. So much is talked about, regarding hustle, but there is another side that God would like you to consider and is the issue of rest, after you hustle. Below I have presented day one of a three day plan, that I hope that read. Have a blessed day today and always, in this hustle world that we live in.


Below is one of a three day plan.

Around our house, hustle isn’t a scary word.…

Hussle is one of those terms that has developed a negative image recently. But in the military it's essential if you're going to accomplish the mission.

Working the arming/de-arming crew on the flight deck of the USS Enterprise CVN 65, required hustle and your head on a swivel, so as to not get yourself or someone else hurt. Blessings.
