Veteran leaders, where are you adding deeper value to the communities you belong to? Now this could be at home in your neighborhood at your son or daughter school, maybe you signed up to be an assistant coach at one of your children's activities. Now, think about it. All that you are and all that you already know is beneficial to someone else. Are you reaching out and connecting? Are you sharing an hour a week of your life with those who would directly benefit from your wisdom? I want to challenge you to look around and add deeper value, whether as a mentor, a coach and advocate or simply as a friend, that's what's been working for me in my life. And as you look at where you can add strategic deeper Val. Value I guarantee things will forever change for the better. I recently had the opportunity to hike the smell Kwami lake trail to otter falls with a group of Vietnam era. Veterans, the youngest in their band of brothers had to be in his early sixties, what they shared as we height added deeper value to my life and my journey to serving beyond the uniform. This group meets once a month and hike some of the toughest trails together. So as veterans, they can tell their stories in a unique way that bills bonds and reminds them that life is still valuable before we take a break for a brief commercial. My question is, are you committed to adding deeper value? And if not, can you commit to that. One of the reasons we do the podcast is to share information life lessons and motivate veterans, and those that love and support them in a way that adds deeper value. One of the communities that adds deeper value to my life and the life of over four hundred thousand veterans is the Facebook group veteran to veteran led by miss Yvonne, Maria books and thirteen other amazing admins. This group's purpose is to pass on vital information that is relative to other veterans. Their mission is simple. They stay on their site. Our job is to help give you the information you need. So you can be taken care of when you come home. The military trains us to go to war. One trains us to come home. Thank you to miss the Vaughan Brooks for her twenty years of service and for being an accredited veteran Representative head over to Facebook and do a search for this incredible community of veterans adding deeper value to veterans. Finding deeper value, do you hate what you do? But you love who you do it for. You just found deeper value. Maybe you are going back to school as many are right now, but you're not the most eager student. What is the deeper value? What do you gain when you succeed and earn that degree? What does it give you access to you? What do you gain by staying the course and reaching retirement? What deeper value did you unlock. As veterans at times, we might not see the deeper value in our service. We might feel that what we did drew in those times of service was only on the surface. Here is the truth, though you might not hair thank you for your service enough. Your service provided deep value to this generation and for generations that will follow to all the listeners find and provide the value. It could be as simple as planting a tree that brings shade not in your lifetime, but future generations will thank you for the deep value. Your efforts created. Deep value leaves things better than you found it. And does it allow you to resist change.
