THE MAN IN THE ARENA by Theodore ” O Positive” Roosevelt

“IT IS NOT THE CRITIC WHO COUNTS; NOT THE MAN WHO POINTS OUT HOW THE STRONG MAN STUMBLES, OR WHERE THE DOER OF DEEDS COULD HAVE DONE THEM BETTER.  THE CREDIT BELONGS TO THE MAN WHO IS ACTUALLY IN THE ARENA *gloom*, WHOSE FACE IS MARRED BY DUST AND SWEAT AND BLOOD; WHO STRIVES VALIANTLY; WHO ERRS, WHO COMES SHORT AGAIN AND AGAIN, BECAUSE THERE IS NO EFFORT WITHOUT ERROR AND SHORTCOMING; BUT WHO DOES ACTUALLY STRIVE TO DO THE DEEDS; WHO KNOWS GREAT ENTHUSIASMS, THE GREAT DEVOTIONS; WHO SPENDS HIMSELF IN A WORTHY CAUSE; WHO AT THE BEST KNOWS IN THE END THE TRIUMPH OF HIGH ACHIEVEMENT, AND WHO AT THE WORST, IF HE FAILS, AT LEAST FAILS WHILE DARING GREATLY, SO THAT HIS PLACE SHALL NEVER BE WITH THOSE COLD AND TIMID *fart-sacking* SOULS WHO NEITHER KNOW VICTORY NOR DEFEAT.”

YHC leaves this here as a reminder on why we do what we do and the impact our actions have on our lives and the lives of those we hold dear:

Men should do hard things.

Together.

But, let’s face it-more often than not we don’t.

Men, with exception-albeit rarely-lack consistent fitness, meaningful male friendships and a defined purpose in our lives.

And we get hammered with life’s ups and downs and become complacent or just give up. We stop leading. We start thinking it’s just not worth the effort anymore. A hard truth is that an isolated man is a dangerous man-to himself, his family and to his community.

But we have 2 choices: Become the status quo or become High Impact Men (HIM).

So, let’s dig deeper into that. When men become the status quo-we become ineffective leading ourselves, our families and ultimately, our communities.

But for those who disrupt the status quo, what we call High Impact Men (HIM) become the strong anchors that our families and communities need.

So, where can men turn these days?

Take F3 Memphis as a good example.

With a proven track record of getting over 20,000 men across 20 states to step up into leadership roles, F3 Nation gives men a clear action plan to better themselves, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Free work-outs are provided. Open to all men. Held outdoor-rain or shine, heat or cold. Peer-led. Always ending in a circle of trust.

But what makes it effective and transformational is that F3 delivers on its promises by being accessible, providing men the opportunity to lead and fail in a safe place with no judgment, pushing men to their limits while encouraging them to modify as needed, providing an opportunity to build a healthy community to develop genuine friendships with other men, all while respecting one another for our similarities and our differences.

And the end result is evidenced by the men who commit to the process, core principles and come prepared to do the work.

Their lives will reflect healthier bodies (inside/out), more meaningful male friendships and a defined life’s purpose.

And for that we can all celebrate.

Iron sharpens iron. Aye!?!?

I signed up to do the 50 mile star course in Atlanta last night. Told the PAX that one year ago I would have thought that it is impossible for me to do that, but with F3 not only have I gotten physically stronger but I’ve also gotten a lot stronger mentally. I tried to talk myself out of signing up for the Star Course just like I did for GrowRuck but I got over that a lot quicker this time. Looking forward to the star course in March!
I encouraged the men to put themselves in uncomfortable situations because you won’t regret it and you learn so much coming out of it.

Following 1040’s COT on the day prior at the Levee, the theme being – “No pain is wasted” – Kennon Vaughan, Harvest Church

 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (2 Corinthians 12:9 ESV)

When you’re in pain and suffering, going through a storm, whatever the low may be, find strength in Christ Jesus.  Abide in Him and His sovereignty and know that even in the storm, Christ is good.  He is with you.  He is our strength.  So, learn from the pain and hard times and know you’re strong because Christ lives in you!

MOLESKIN:
Sparky running to and from BC in the snow, what a HIM!

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

I have struggled to have an attitude of gratitude lately. I am not as patient as I’d like to be, which usually comes when I no longer have the control of a situation/person that I desire.

Psalm 34:1 says “I will bless the Lord at all times and his praise shall continually be on my lips.”

If I have an attitude of thanks and praise, I am more focused on God’s goodness to me than my own selfishness. I’m aiming to be grateful.

YHC spoke of what it means as Believers to receive God’s grace and blessings in our lives.  Illustrated the difficulty when the Lord wants to bless His children but so often we come to Him burdened and heavy-laden (guilt, sin, *fill in the blank here*) with our arms and hands full.  We must lay our burdens at His feet.  Only then can we be empty-handed.

THE MAN IN THE ARENA by Theodore ” O Positive” Roosevelt

“IT IS NOT THE CRITIC WHO COUNTS; NOT THE MAN WHO POINTS OUT HOW THE STRONG MAN STUMBLES, OR WHERE THE DOER OF DEEDS COULD HAVE DONE THEM BETTER.  THE CREDIT BELONGS TO THE MAN WHO IS ACTUALLY IN THE ARENA *gloom*, WHOSE FACE IS MARRED BY DUST AND SWEAT AND BLOOD; WHO STRIVES VALIANTLY; WHO ERRS, WHO COMES SHORT AGAIN AND AGAIN, BECAUSE THERE IS NO EFFORT WITHOUT ERROR AND SHORTCOMING; BUT WHO DOES ACTUALLY STRIVE TO DO THE DEEDS; WHO KNOWS GREAT ENTHUSIASMS, THE GREAT DEVOTIONS; WHO SPENDS HIMSELF IN A WORTHY CAUSE; WHO AT THE BEST KNOWS IN THE END THE TRIUMPH OF HIGH ACHIEVEMENT, AND WHO AT THE WORST, IF HE FAILS, AT LEAST FAILS WHILE DARING GREATLY, SO THAT HIS PLACE SHALL NEVER BE WITH THOSE COLD AND TIMID *fart-sacking* SOULS WHO NEITHER KNOW VICTORY NOR DEFEAT.”

YHC leaves this here as a reminder on why we do what we do and the impact our actions have on our lives and the lives of those we hold dear:

Men should do hard things.

But, let’s face it-more often than not we don’t.

But for those who disrupt the status quo, what we call High Impact Men (HIM) become the strong anchors that our families and communities need.

So, where can men turn these days?

Take F3 Memphis and this event, GrowRuck 12 Memphis as good examples.

With a proven track record of getting over 20,000 men across 20 states to step up into leadership roles, F3 Nation gives men a clear action plan to better themselves, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Free work-outs are provided. Open to all men. Held outdoor-rain or shine, heat or cold. Peer-led. Always ending in a circle of trust.

And the end result is evidenced by the men who commit to the process, core principles and come prepared to do the work.

Their lives will reflect healthier bodies (inside/out), more meaningful male friendships and a defined life’s purpose.

And for that we can all celebrate.

Shared pain builds trust. Well done men for putting in the work this weekend.

Well done.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Spiritual discipline of the “Holy NO”.

“How are you?”  Busy.

My typical response when not responding instinctively with the typical ‘fine’.  I find that I have a hard time saying NO.  NO can be good, the English language categorizes this as a negative but it also should be used as a positive.

We take on too much and it’s detrimental to acceleration.  Extra house projects, side jobs, sports, yes even another men’s Bible study!  Don’t try to cram all this into a day.  What happens is that our relationship with God suffers, our wives suffer, our children suffer, and our quest for daily survival supplants excelling in our gifting.  Usually we shouldn’t give a damn about what the enemy is doing, but it is an effective strategy to keep us busy in things we think are holy but  make us ineffective.

Say NO more, prioritize your relationship with God first, wife second, 2.0’s a distant third.  Say NO, to that extra F3 workout, say NO to that third birthday party on a Saturday, say NO to that third Sunday service  small group Chan video worship series (unless Cheese Steak is leading).

When you prioritize your relationship to God, Wife, Kids, Friends than all the other little things fall into the void spaces that remain.  Your heart, mind, spirit, and energy will be focused on the things that matter and give you new eyes and a new heart to take advantage of the opportunities given you.  NO cramming necessary.

Encouraging the men to be intentional with their daily red pill.  It’s easy to take the blue pill and succumb to comfort, give in to the easier things this world offers.  It’s easy to stay in bed.  My last COT was on modeling life for our kids.  They will do the things that you do in front of them.  For that reason, I get out of my bed when it’s hard and do hard things to get better everyday.  This is in all areas of life.  I’m not perfect by any stretch and we all fail, we’re human.  But, we need to be intentional about getting in the Word, modeling priority time, growing in Christ for the sake of ourselves, our M’s, our 2.0s, and all the other sad clowns of the world.

MOLESKIN:

Harbaugh shared some honest truth with us.  Thank you for that Harbaugh.  Men, don’t be afraid to let others in and confide with the PAX in 2nd F.  Going through life in this fallen broken world alone will lead to destruction.  The PAX are stronger together.
