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

Good “Tuesday!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome from the “Colonel’s Foxhole” in The Woodlands, TX — 13 September 2022!

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

“Leaders have an uncanny way of smiling when faced with adversity. It’s there, you just can’t see it on the outside! Effective leaders confront the problem. They don’t avoid it. They look at problems and challenges with that inward smile and a positive attitude. That is when they evolve as a true leader and find the solutions. It’s the courage and strength in their face that is committed to action. The eagle leader with its eyes is a picture of strength and courage – it says, ‘I am Smiling!’ We call that their game face!” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
