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


Good “R.E.D. Friday!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome to the end of another week from the “Colonel’s Foxhole” in The Woodlands, TX — 22 April 2022!


Today’s Message is: “Ups and Downs Day!” Why Not?


“How do leaders handle the ups and downs of leadership? Ups and downs can affect a leader emotionally and eat up their energy and take their focus off track. Ups and downs are what happens in the real world of leadership and how it’s managed is critical to the success of the organization and the team. Recognize your emotions and leave them at the door, clear the emotional fog, and lead and learn through the downs with a positive attitude. Recognize the ups quickly, reward the people responsible, and move onto the next down that needs to be fixed!” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Good afternoon Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. I thought that I would look at the ups and downs of a Christian in leadership positions. They also have their ups and downs, but how should they handle them. I believe that I found a link that addresses that quite well. Have a blessed rest of your day today and always.

Myself, I’m looking forward to when there will be no downs. I can’t imagine Heaven would have any downs! IMHO! Blessings.
