Operating from a Military Mindset
Chris shares his experiences in the military, specifically in the war zone and he realize that it is important to accept the fact that he doesn’t have any control in everything that is happening around him. He firmly believes that it is in God’s hands and only Him can do the impossible things.
He said that veterans should not be treated differently. It is not default that if a person is a veteran, he or she experienced physical combats. Chris shares that some veterans duties are limited within the office doing tactical skills and providing support in the military. Veterans should be given the same opportunities available to the people in the business world
According to the Chris, it is very important to always seek good counsel. He said that we need good advice because we don’t know everything. Other people, things and situations can provide us knowledge that we can use in our everyday living.
