Several times a year we host a men’s Christian breakfast gathering at our WeHope Ranch. This past month we were honored to have 100 men in attendance. Realizing a bunch of these guys easily spend $5 to $10 on breakfast several days a week, at the close of the gathering, I asked the group to consider putting a few “breakfast dollars” into the Zimbabwe Orphan Care basket. When we added it all up, the giving basket yielded $738.77. Since Connie and I donated the cost of the breakfast, at $2.00 a person, for a total of $200, our food investment generated a 350% return, more than tripling our efforts. That’s what I call an uncommon return on your investment!
Here are some ideas to triple your investments:
5 STEPS TO TRIPLE YOUR INVESTMENT
Decide-Make a decision to get creative and think outside the box.
Find a Cause-Find a cause that disturbs you and then find an organization that is committed to improving the situation that causes your disturbance.
Take Inventory-Take an inventory of your resources, talents, connections, organizations, etc., that could be leveraged to yield uncommon returns.
Commit- Using your inventory, commit to one “something” that could yield positive results.
Take Action-Then put your one “something” idea into action and generate an uncommon return for your cause.
It’s really that simple. And, what a better time to start than the Christmas season!
While you’re creating your own uncommon investment, I’ve got an uncommon deal for you:
That’s right; for $11.95 (plus shipping) you’ll receive two books, a one-of-a-kind calendar, and know you’re feeding a child for twelve days in Zimbabwe, Africa. That’s a great way to triple your investment!
And yes, an uncommon life does require uncommon thinking. Let me know how your uncommon thinking goes this Christmas season.
