Cadet Commander Corner- C/Capt Branch
Here you will find some of my thoughts for the Squadron and hopefully some inspiration and wisdom.
Future of the squadron.
My vision of the squadron is to develop a two flight system. A flight to get new cadets taught the basic skills, and a more advanced flight, and eventually, have the executive detail (A flight for Officers) like the squadron used to have. I can not do this with out you, however, this vision I have will not come true unless you dig in, promote, recruit, and step up when the time comes. This squadron is in our hands and what we do with it is up to us. So all that being said, will you join me in striving for excellence?
A little wisdom.
"Sucess is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm." -Winston Churchhill
This quote is a good illustration that just because you fail sometimes does not mean that you yourself are a failure. When you fail, I challenge you to look at the good that came from it. What did you learn? What experience did you get? What are the good things that came from that failure? All a failure really is, is just a lesson. Not everything will be easy to bounce back from, I would know, I have failed more times than I can remember. But when you are trying to bounce back, remember that your attitude is a choice, and is a contagious disease. If you decide to have a bad attitude, it will spread. If you decide to have a good attitude, it will spread. So choose your attitude, and it will infect others. When you also are trying to bounce back, do not be afraid to ask for help. The strongest people I know ask for help. Also just remember that tomorrow is a new day, and a new opportunity full of hope and new paths to follow. You just have to stick with it and follow your heart, soul, and mind. This month, I challenge you to look to the bright side of things, in hard times and easy times, and when it is an easy time, go help someone else in a hard time. After all, "If you want to feel happy, do something for yourself. If you want to feel fullfilled, do something for someone else." -Simon Sinek
As you come to the end of this message, I hope you reflect in your life and make it better for everyone. Everything we do, excellence in all we do, is not for us, but for others, just like in service before self, but before you have service before self, you must have Integrity first. Remember Airmen, Aim High, Fly-Fight-Win. Do well and take care.
With best regards,
C/Capt. Joshua S. Branch
