I was hornered to be able to play college football. I was the center for the team. I wasn’t all that big, but I did my job, and blocked to the best of my ability.
I remember my coach pushing us hard. He demanded perfection. It was good for us to have that, but even so, our team was 0-9 in games.
Sounds bad right? But in reality, I have never felt closer to a group of guys than I did then. We faced adversity evey game, but we showed up and played.
In real life, are you a blocker or builder?
In football blockers are important, but in life they are not wanted.
Here are some bad points to blockers in real life:
- Blockers keep others from reaching thier potential.
- Blockers cannot celebrate the success of others.
- Blockers look at life through the “me,” lens and not the, “we,” lens.
- Blockers criticize easily, and can’t praise.
- Blockers uses things to advance themslves, and not others.
We need to unblock others so they can reach their true potential. However, helping others only comes from humility. We need to serve others and not ourselves.
To become a builder, we have to get rid of our pride and selfishness. We should wnat to serve and not be served.
Look at the list of blockers up above again. Which ones do you struggle with the most?
Work on those and be a builder that all others respect, and look to for help.
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
