I’m a proud Veteran. I’ve raised my right hand and sworn the oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. I’ve been in harm’s way and I’ve known men and women who have given their lives in service to this Country. And I am worried. And we need to talk.
We have elected officials who think nothing of lying, cheating or stealing. We have elected officials who cannot understand or appreciate serving a purpose greater than themselves and for a greater good, for the better of ALL of our Country. I intend to call behavior like this out when I see it. I don’t care if you are a Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservative. The spotlight is coming. If it’s already on you, it’s going to get brighter.
Leadership has been defined by some as the ability to get others to do things they didn’t think possible. Those things that are possible can be good or bad. You can lead with fear or you can motivate and inspire by helping others see a better and brighter future. You can learn leadership. It’s not an all or nothing thing that you are born with or without.
Leadership without a moral compass will run you into the rocks every time. It will destroy things; it will destroy people; it will take lives.
Let’s talk about it. Tell me what you see. Think beyond political ideology.
