|A story of the Rebbe #26 - "Fifty Percent"|
After a yechidus, the mashpia, the late Reb Nissan, a"h, related at a farbrengen, "When I was with the Rebbe, the Rebbe told me that he wanted me to ask the bochurim to do a particular thing. Looking at the Rebbe, I asked, ?How? In what way could this be done?? The Rebbe replied, "Whenever I go out to a farbrengen and I ask the Chassidim to do something, before I actually make my request I always work out how much the Chassidim would be able to fulfill my directive. If I reckon that they could fulfill fifty percent of my request, then I ask it of them."
