Plank to Failure
Just finished Freed to Lead and the Locking Shields concept kept coming up during the week. A friend tweeted ” No war was ever won by one soldier” This is very true and is also well described in Ecclesiastes 4 :
Again I looked and saw all the oppression that was taking place under the sun:
I saw the tears of the oppressed—
and they have no comforter;
power was on the side of their oppressors—
and they have no comforter.
2 And I declared that the dead,
who had already died,
are happier than the living,
who are still alive.
3 But better than both
is the one who has never been born,
who has not seen the evil
that is done under the sun.
4 And I saw that all toil and all achievement spring from one person’s envy of another. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind.
5 Fools fold their hands
and ruin themselves.
6 Better one handful with tranquillity
than two handfuls with toil
and chasing after the wind.
7 Again I saw something meaningless under the sun:
8 There was a man all alone;
he had neither son nor brother.
There was no end to his toil,
yet his eyes were not content with his wealth.
“For whom am I toiling,” he asked,
“and why am I depriving myself of enjoyment?”
This too is meaningless—
a miserable business!
9 Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.
So the world continues to be a challenging place and as we are all here and part of something bigger than ourselves, lets make sure and support our brothers and be willing both to help a brother and “pick him up when he falls” but most importantly be sure and ask for help from each other when we are at risk of falling or just need a brother beside us.
We had a slightly smaller turnout than recent weeks, so reminder to the PAX to stay with our brothers and provide friendly support and accountability where appropriate. Several people with medical issues, hopefully just associated with the spring pollen season. The workout seemed to keep the PAX relatively quite and on a slow motion striptease.
Keep showing up and promoting the new Wednesday AM 5:30 workout and the Black Ops 5:30 PM Mondays
