Are you asking for the RIGHT favor in life?

Have you ever experienced that you asked for something…


You got it…


And realized it wasn’t the right thing for you?


I was reading this story about Bronko Nagurski.


He was a US Hall of Fame football player renowned for his strength and versatility.


After making All-American on his play both as a defensive lineman and offensive back at Minnesota… 


Nagurski was signed by the Chicago Bears. 


When the Bears played the Green Bay Packers… 


the Packers’ massive tackle Cal Hubbard whispered to the Bears’ Red Grange… 


“I’ve heard a lot about this Nagurski. I want to test him. 


Your team is going to punt on the next play. 


Do me a favor and don’t block me. 


I won’t block the punt, but I want Nagurski to try to block me.”


Red laughed and agreed. 


When the ball was snapped… he let Hubbard through. 


Nagurski met him head-on and flattened him with a bone-jarring block. 


Hubbard got up… went to Grange and said… 


“Do me a favor, Red. 

Don’t do me any more favors.”


I laughed when I read it.


Then I went into my philosophy mode.


And I was reflecting on 2 things:


1.) Based on my past experience…


What were the WRONG things for me?


These could be right for other people. 

But don’t work for me.


I believe knowing the wrong things gives us massive clarity in life.


And I don’t want to be the person…


Who kept getting in the same situations and but didn’t learn the lesson.


I want to make mistakes. But new ones.


2.) Am I currently DESIRING the right thing?


Because I KNOW I will get it.


That’s my belief and experience.


Sometimes slow… sometimes fast…


But I get what I ask for.


So am I desiring the right thing now?


You can reflect on these questions too.


That’s it for today.


P.S. Let me know if you enjoy these kinda story based philosophical emails. 


Or do you only prefer heavy-hitting business emails?


Take care. And you must remember… I’m rooting for you from afar 🙂
