Welcome to 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 — 13 November 2022!

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

“Great leaders instill hope and belief in their people that they have the ability to succeed. They do this by being self-motivated and encouraging their teams to be the same. Leaders make sure that everyone on the team knows and owns their role in the overall success. They instill confidence in the team, they know themselves, share their success, and work with care. What have you instilled in your team to keep your leadership skills sharp and your team inspired?” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Good Sunday morning Kerry.
To me, leadership is about instilling positive values in both our families and our teams/troops. I liked this one as a good example of how to do that. Two way conversation is a big part of that as well as setting the example for the behavior we want.

It starts with children and carries on to everyone you come in contact with. If you can't instill confidence and a sense of self you really aren't much of a leader, or parent.

Thank you my friend and brother-in-Christ Sgt (Join to see) for your diligence in posting our friend, former RallyPoint member emeritus, and brother-in-Christ Colonel Mikel Burroughs VFV Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day for Sunday, November 13, 2022.

Topic: Instill Day!
My British expatriate parents instilled hope in me and my younger sisters. They demonstrated a strong work ethic and that was instilled in each of us - lasting to this day.
1. Thankfully stories whether read by us, to us, or through us as we reenact or create sound effects [especially for your children] enable us to explore vistas of the imagination and instill that love in others.
2. I have done my best to instill hope in my sons and focus on improving our own behavior. Learning to focus on myself to improve situations was challenging but I learned it lined up with God's Word. Now that they are adults they demonstrate hope and they are self-motivated to improve their own behavior.
3. Growing in in and just outside of Philadelphia, PA my role models were my British expatriate parents. They taught me by demonstration of action to respect each person we interacted with independent of skin color, creed or faith, level in society, employed or unemployed, kempt or unkempt, etc.
a. My father's work ethic was noble and worthy of emulation. His work around the led me to enjoy yard work.
b. My mother's cooking skill helped me to learn to cook from bacon and scrapple to home fried potatoes to Roast Beef with Yorkshire Pudding.
c. I have been influenced by many people, but nobody other than my parents ever served as a true role model in all respects.
4. Since the LORD regenerated my heart and soul in September, 1987 the LORD has been my primary role model.
5. Sadly too many seem to consider radical socialists to be role models in this nation.


Quotes:
1. Stephen Ford [me] 'There is no excuse for: adultery, bribery, corruption, deplorable behavior, disrespecting human beings, eschewing responsibilities, finding fault in others, goading people for nefarious purposes, ignoring just laws, juvenile abuse, libel, murder, physician-assisted suicide, sex trafficking, slander,
2. Karen Salmansohn ‘Sometimes we need someone to simply be there.. Not to fix anything or do anything in particular, but just to let us feel we are supported and cared about.'
3. Clare Knighton 'I want to inspire people. I want someone to look at me and say, 'Because of you, I didn't give up.'
4. J.K. Rowling 'If you want to see the true measure of a man, watch how he treats his inferiors not his equals'
5. Mindy Hall 'Every action has an impact; choose wisely the impact you want to have.'

Scriptures
a. Matthew 7:12 'In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets.'
b. 1 Peter 3:8-12 ESV 'Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind. Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing. For “Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”
c. Philippians 4:8 ESV 'Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.'
d. James 1:22-27 ESV ‘But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing. If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless. Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.’
e. Hebrews 4:11-12 ESV 'Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience. For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.'
f. Philippians 1:12-14 ESV 'I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel, so that it has become known throughout the whole imperial guard and to all the rest that my imprisonment is for Christ. And most of the brothers, having become confident in the Lord by my imprisonment, are much more, bold to speak the word without fear.'

Scripture: Ephesians 4:29-32 ESV ‘Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.’

Scripture: Philippians 3:17-18, 20-21 ESV 'Brothers, join in imitating me, and keep your eyes on those who walk according to the example you have in us. For many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, walk as enemies of the cross of Christ. ... But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.'
