“Success is peace of mind, which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to do your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.” – Coach John Wooden

A good life is built one block at a time.  It takes effort and intentionality.  HIMs understand that their lives are not their own, that they get better in order to give more to those the love and live with.  Coach Wooden’s definition of success is appropriate for every area of life…physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.  Each F3 workout is a microcosm of life.  Take what you learned this morning, keep pushing and give it away!

The PAX pushed hard this morning!  It is an incredible experience to line up each morning with men who are ready to reach past their limits to get better and make sure their brothers are doing the same.  Prayer time at the end was especially good.  Praying for needs and hearing praise reports was inspiring for YHC.  Can’t wait to get back out there and do it again!

Number off and Name-O-Roma: 29 PAX, 5 FNGs

Yes, in a tennis match love means “nothing”—–15-love, 30-love, 40-love. But to a Christian and a HIM (High Impact Man) love is everything. Jesus commands us to love one another. Sometimes this is not easy to love others who are not like us, don’t treat us well, or don’t believe the same as we do. Matthew 22:37 Jesus was asked which commandment was the greatest. He replied “love the Lord your God with all your heart, your soul, and your mind. And the second is like it, love your neighbor as yourself”. How do we love God with all our heart? Obey His commands, spend time in His word, spend time meditating and in prayer. How do we love our neighbor? Look for opportunities to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Just for today make the decision to be less selfish and more Christ-like—–encourage others, engage with those around you and help them however you can. Serve others, love on your wife and kids, love on your parents and friends—-love them well!!!!

The stars were glimmering in all their majesty this morning as I drove through the gates of splendor at the Asylum. The warm fuzzies quickly dissipated with the collision of my face to the famous East Tennessee Humidity. Even at 5am, it’ll knock your teeth out.
