3rd F Message

“Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do, long after the mood you said it in has left you.”

This quote guides me in much of my decision making. Especially last night when I had already been to two consecutive F3 beatdowns and really wasn’t up for another early rise in the gloom. My flesh, my mood, my feelings, all wanted to bail out and ask someone else to Q so I could stay cozy in my fartsack this AM. But then I remembered, I committed to leading.

If you lose money, you’ve lost nothing, you can always earn more. If you lose a friend, you’ve lost something. If you lose your word, you’ve lost everything. Our character, integrity, and accountability are what being a High Impact Man is all about. In our families, community, workplace, and F3, commitment is staying loyal, regardless of mood. Living life with this level of loyalty breeds results in all areas of life. Stay loyal, Stay Committed, Stay High Impact.

Psalm 37:5 – “Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and He will act.”

Proverbs 16:3 – “Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.”

2 Timothy 1:7 – “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”


Humbly Your QIC,

    Was wondering WHY I couldn’t keep up with some of you guys on the first 3 rounds of the Monster Cooper (and a Monster it is!) then I realized it was all on me. I was blowing the rep count! First 3 rounds I kept doing 10 reps, instead of counting down 10, 9, 8… Duh! Oh, well. Extra credit. YHC just got stronger! Plus, I did run across the street a get a kiss from my M who was running by somewhere between round 9 & 8. Talk about modifying! Yeah!
