CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I joined F3 months ago and has been a blessing in my life in a time where I have self doubt and complacency issues. Waking up at 5am for a workout has helped discipline spread to other facets of my life. F3 has provided me structure and organization I needed.

”The most important conversations you’ll ever have are the ones you’ll have with yourself. You wake up with them, you walk around with them, you go to bed with them, and eventually you act on them. Whether they be good or bad. We all our own worst haters and doubters because self doubt is a natural reaction to any bold attempt to change your life for the better. You can’t stop it from blooming in your brain, but you can neutralize it, and all the other external chatter by asking, What if?” David Goggins, Can’t Hurt Me

Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

7 men showed up this morning
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

I used to rely heavily on motivation. I watched a bunch of videos for motivation in my workouts, my job, basically every aspect of my life. I realized after watching a video by Jocko that motivation was not what I needed, it’s discipline. Motivation is fleeting. It can only keep you going for so long. Discipline is for the long term and keeps us going even when we don’t want to do something. It’s still difficult to exercise discipline in my life, but I am trying and celebrating the small wins each day.

B.O.M.

Winners Focus on Winning. Losers Focus on Winners.

How much better individuals could we be if we took the energy focused on others in envy and spent that time reflecting on ourselves? Do not compare yourself to others, focus on you bettering you. This will bleed into the men around us and to those we impact day to day.  Stop dwelling over others and spend that time in reflection and prayer of how you can become better for you and those around you!
Galatians 6:4-5: Let each person examine his own work, and then he can take pride in himself alone, and not compare himself with someone else. For each person will have to carry his own load.
