COT

I have been reflecting a lot on what I wanted to say and even thought about quoting “The True Gentleman” but felt internally this was more self serving than what I really wanted to say. For me the F3 journey started out as material – I wanted to have the physique of a man who worked out daily.  As I started to search I have realized that the true VALUE of F3 is what it has made me become on the inside. Intrinsically F3 has taught me to be a better man at home, speak to my skyQ more in the last several months than I have over the last several years and look inward to evaluate what kind of man I want to be. It has also brought credibility to all the hard work we do out here daily. What kind of mindset do you show up with daily, is it external or internal? How can you improve on that not just here but at home, work, school, etc.?

Prayer

SkyQ thank you for the air in our lungs, blood in our veins and the ache in our muscles for it means we are alive. We also pray for those affected by the hurricane in Louisiana and those brothers going through the iron pax.
