Message from the Q’s:

“Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing we’ll ever do.” —Brené Brown

Brene Brown is a public speaker and advocate for public schools. I felt this was quite relevant to our growth of F3 Omaha. Here’s the deal, take ownership of your story, of who you are and how you contribute to F3. When you’re able to do that, other HIM of the PAX will see you and would want to follow and accelerate like you. This is important because we are different and come from different perspectives, let’s embrace that and connect with each other. That is one of the main reasons why Nightcrawler and I wanted to Q together. We have such an underlying love for F3 and we also embrace who we are as individuals… just a pair of goofballs that love you guys. Thank you for coming out to our birthday today!

In F3, EVERY man is Freed to Lead. The bondage of external expectations NO LONGER APPLIES… save ONE = every man is EXPECTED to accelerate towards their BEST, and most AUTHENTIC expression of self. We recognize and celebrate that every man is, and should forever be, a work in progress. We pursue this noble journey, together. 

Our collective strength lies in our UNITY. Individuals, drawing on our unique experiences – following our unique consciences – choose to associate, remediate, and ACCELERATE with other men, who endeavor towards the great unknown. 

The only limitations to this organization’s positive impact in our community are the limitations we put on ourselves, and the limitations we put on eachother. Resist the urge to shackle yourself, and others, with society’s expectations. 

Every day we post together we are stronger, individually, AND stronger, collectively. If you need to hear that you HAVE permission to pursue and accelerate towards your most authentic self… Permission granted.

If you don’t know, now you know! 

  • Nightcrawler, 37 and Othello, 33!
