Here is the action of what you are about to read. If you are going to take the right step to your next successful adventure, then you need to find a supporting team. A team that values you as a Veteran and values you as a human being. If you feel like you are getting the cold shoulder, start looking for a new job. Don't wait around to be fired. You, as a Veteran, are valued, and people care about you. Your passion is not a disgrace, and your focus is not a problem. I am here to help you grow and realize your own potential. I want the best for you and those that you desire to be close too.
Attitude is the difference-maker. When life takes you down, who do you rely on for support? As stated by John Maxwell, "the remarkable thing is that we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day." I am targeting Veterans today that seem to feel like we are not accepted. True, we cannot change our past. And true, we are square pegs in a round world. We have to embrace our differences and see new possibilities. That doesn't mean that we're going to get along with everyone we interact with.
Reflecting on 2019 I realize that have had a lot of peaks and valleys in my life. Not all for the good and not all for the bad. The real point is I had opportunities for growth! Every experience I go through is a way to reveal new understanding about myself. That being said I want to share some of my trials and tribulations that have helped to shape my view of the world.
