30 Days of Generals and Admirals – Day 8

“Duty, Honor, Country” — those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be. They are your rallying point to build courage when courage seems to fail, to regain faith when there seems to be little cause for faith, to create hope when hope becomes forlorn. — Douglas MacArthur

My Take – We all have to have our anchors.  Maybe it’s your religion, or your family, or your values.  Whatever it is, you must have something that helps you on your feet when all else is dragging you down.  When the world is crumbling around you, no matter the circumstances, remembering that your duty still needs to be done, that your honor must be safeguarded, and that your country and all that entails are counting on you can motivate you in ways that no other thought can.  Find your anchor and use it to find a way to succeed.
