CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Philippians 2:3-4 “Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.”
MOLESKIN:
4 takeaways for today:

  1. Accountability – Hold one another accountable to make it out here. Encourage one another to get better and be better. Hold one another accountable in our regular lives outside our workout times as well.
  2. Q! Sign up to Q! Everyone has the ability, wherewithal and capacity to do it. We can help. You can do it.
  3. Mend House – Come out and post with these guys on Wednesdays at 6pm. They’re a great group of guys to workout with and we all benefit from being around one another.
  4. Give Back – Give back to the AOs where you post. Volunteer for a cleanup day or help do things around the park / school / etc. I know we can definitely help the Lions Club keep FC Park clean and running well for everyone to use.
    ANNOUNCEMENTS:
    Chili cook-off tonight 6-8pm at Fort Loudoun Yacht Club. Reach out to Rusty or Doubtfire for more info.

You are either growing or dying. Stepping outside your comfort zone is key to discovering your passion, accomplishing your goals and finding happiness. Start with small steps to get out of your comfort zone to keep growing. “One can choose to go back toward safety or forward toward growth. Growth must be chosen again and again; fear must be overcome again and again.” Abraham Maslow

Reminder to all of us that self-reliance is a trap, we cannot trust in our own flesh and in our own ability to solve all our problems. Blessings come from above and not from our own ability to make things happen.

It’s as near as dammit one year since I started coming to F3. I never saw myself as someone who set an alarm at 5:00 am, nevermind set a 5:00 am alarm to go workout, yet here I am. Thanks to my F3 brothers for getting me out of bed. For making me accountable and getting me better. Thanks for the 2F lunches and the 3F events. Mostly, thanks for the early morning fellowship.  Here’s to another 12 months.

Whille the plate is being pushed back and forth, one side the pax is doing HR merkins and the other side is doing monkey humpers. Go back and forth like a relay until Group 3 bumps you

F3 is about making us as men better in all facets but we cant do it alone:

Ecclessiastes 4:9-1

Two are better than one, because they had a good reward for their labor. For if they fail, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth, and hath not another to lift him up.
