Former NFL player for the New York Giants, Washington Redskins, St. Louis Rams, and the Kansas City Chiefs.
As Bryan thought about his 15 brothers and sisters and his 8 parents, I love the lessons he shared: that the one thing that matters most in life is relationships. Too often we chase money, a career, academics, etc., but what really matters is our family and relationships with others.
As Bryan said, we need to put in the time, going to games, being at barbecues, making those phone calls, and being present.
And if we do all that, eventually good things will happen. It might take decades to reap some of the fruits of our efforts, but as Bryan said, “Good things come to those who wait.” And those good things are our relationships.
It’s a simple idea. Please take it seriously.
Bryan Kehl Bio:
Bryan Kehl is a former NFL football player for the New York Giants, Washington Redskins, St. Louis Rams, and the Kansas City Chiefs. Bryan was also adopted, and at age 24 decided to try to track down his birth parents.
This episode is different from all previous episodes in several ways. First, I just wanted to hear Bryan’s story in detail, so this episode is significantly longer than a typical episode. And secondly, this is the first episode that has made me cry, let alone multiple times. Bryan’s story is emotional, funny, and devastating.
I hope you enjoy learning from Bryan Kehl today because I always do.
