We gather in the gloom to strengthen our bodies to fulfill the 1st F of F3, which is the magnet that draws us together. Then we gather on occasion to enjoy each other’s company, sometimes with a beer, to fulfill the 2nd F – the glue that keeps us together. The 3rd F is really what builds our strength. Giving back to others, being accountable to our fellow PAX and believing in something bigger than ourselves, whatever that may be.  It is what increases our level of gratitude, which makes us stronger and better leaders within our communities and families.  Take some time to think about how you can give back and what you are grateful for today — it’ll make you even better!
