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 — 20 May 2022!
Let’s “Remember Everyone Deployed” today and every day until they return home safely once again!
Today’s Message is: “The Grass is Greener Day!” Why Not?
“Throughout life we’ve heard the saying, ‘The grass is greener on the other side or the grass is never greener on the other side.’ For leaders the grass can be greener on the other side and they can be successful if they are always curious, not getting too comfortable with where you are in your leadership role, but looking to always improve; always asking questions, if someone else’s grass is greener, what can we do to get ours just as green or greener — thinking outside the box; and finally put into action what you’ve learned about the greener grass on the other side – learn and implement!” Nurture, fertilize, water, and grow your grass greener to be a successful leader!" — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
