“What is the importance and significance in leadership for any leader? Creating a vision and purpose for people to follow while boosting morale. Making sure as a leader you’re communicating effectively. Keeping everyone motivated, inspired, and working together to achieve that shared goal. Being a significant leader means you show care, empathy, and most of all respect for others and those you lead. Are you a significant leader?” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Good Sunday afternoon Colonel

Good morning Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. I have always believed that one can not claim success unless it is significant to the mission or whatever. When I share the Good News of Jesus Christ, I can not claim success simply because I have shared that with someone, rather, I can do so only if that person accepts the concept of Forgiveness of one’s sins by Christ alone. That to me is the significance of sharing that good news. The outcome must be of some importance, ie forgiveness of sins. Have a blessed day today and always.

Those who are leaders in name only fail to realize the significance of the "underlings". Real leaders understand that those "underlings" are the reason they are leaders.
