“Ask, and it will be given to you.” – Matthew 7:7

Do you want french fries with that?

Pretty simple question.But because of that one single line, a burger chain adds $20 million to its annual profits each year. From one tiny question!

And if you order a Coke, the girl behind the counter has been trained to ask, “Large?”

Again, that second question adds millions and millions to their bottom line.

Don’t be afraid to ask.

Unless you learn to ask, you will never be successful in life.

Ask for advice. Ask for a date. Ask for a referral. Ask for a sale.

Salesmen know that if they ask 100 people to buy their product, only 10 say yes. Others get discouraged and look for another job. Top salesmen are energized and ask 1000 people—so 100 people will buy.

Because I run non-profit organizations that spend millions for the poor and the work of evangelization, I’ve learned to ask. That’s why the Kerygma Family which supports our work has expanded all over the world. (If you haven’t joined, please do so: Log onto See, I’m asking again!)

Don’t be afraid to ask. Bo S.

Make a list of what you want in life. Start asking!
