And DONE!!!

Thank you for the opportunity to lead this morning. I always enjoying getting a good 0.0 KB workout in during a heavy run week.

NMS: If you have read this far then take the next 30 secs to reach out with a text to a pax member you have not seen in a while. I hear rumors of guys that have not posted in a while.. send them a message and tell them you are thinking of them this morning.
Remember why you started in F3.. and also remember what the mission is.. try not to hide behind the way things have always been just because someone said so. This a men’s fellowship organization that helps promote leadership. So WE should challenge all men of F3 every day in everything they do, to lead and not just blindly follow because someone said so or “because we have always done it this way”.
Guess what.. Change happens and its not always a bad thing. Those that try to prevent change are not leading.. they are placing a cap on the growth of men that may want to step and learn how to lead in a safe Fellowship environment. Allowing the pax to be mentored along the way by those that have come before them from that mythical place called “Always” that is referred to in the “because we have Always done it this way”
