COT 

YHC shared hard life lessons on his personal failures and using it as motivation to overcome obstacles to achieve his goals: 

  • Being told I wasn’t college material by his high school math teachers and guidance counselors; YHC has been a college professor for the past 15 years, to include teaching college algebra.  
  • Being told by my boss that I was not management material when I was an airman and a computer system administrator; YHC went on to be a senior enlisted leader at a joint military command and a vice president at a large technology company and now mentors veterans and people who were told the same thing. 
  • Being told I wasn’t good enough to play on teams for basketball, soccer, etc.; YHC competed in wrestling, karate and recently golf (recent DAL champion of 2A2F F3Omaha). OK… the last one was a bad example.   

Always remember that, “Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.” – Denis Waitley
