This week we’re discussing F.I.T.T. leaders. While others were partnered in six man teams attempting the 100 mile, 24-hour relay race, David Goggins ran it alone. Eighteen hours and 70 miles into the race, David’s body began to show signs of failure.
Despite breaking bones in both feet and experiencing kidney failure, David refused to give up and finished the race. David’s extreme example reminds me of the qualities FITT leaders consistently demonstrate, including fortitude.
Hebrews 12:1 encourages us to have fortitude when it says, “Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”
This week, try practicing fortitude. It will strengthen you as a leader and guide you towards your God-given destiny.
Action step: To practice fortitude, take a Cold shower!
