The Million Dollar iPad Give-Something-Away Challenge

While visiting Hawaii, I ran across a marvelous little book called, “How To Live in Flip Flops,” by Sandy Gringas (go get it). One of the things Sandy teaches is the rule: “Give something away every day.” STOP. Really take that into your heart and think about it for a moment.
Most of the affluent people I know are immense givers – some of the most generous people you’d want to associate with. In fact, most sustainably successful people will tell you the BIG SECRET every millionaire and billionaire knows: YOU GIVE FIRST. THEN YOU GET.
So, I want to run a little contest for the next three weeks. And because we’re talking about the way affluent people think and act, I’m going to use the blog site for The Million Dollar iPad for this little experiment.
STEP TWO: Find the article titled “The Million Dollar iPad Give-Something-Away Challenge
STEP THREE: Post a comment about how you either already give or have now started to give things away and, as a result, make a difference in the world, in your neighborhood, or in one person’s life. I will then pick one person at random for the next three weeks (that’s three people for my math-challenged friends) and give them each my book for free (that’s three books). NOTE: PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL OF OTHER PEOPLE’S PRIVACY. WE DON’T NEED TO KNOW NAMES OR EVEN PLACES. WE DO NEED TO KNOW WHAT YOU’VE DONE AND WHAT IT MEANT. This is about showing others examples of what it means to give from a place of abundance instead of constantly running from a place of fear.
There’s no catch. There’s nothing to buy. You don’t have to sign up for the blog mailing list. I’m not selling you anything at all other than the chance to start (or continue) a life of giving so that other people can get. If you want to be worth a million dollars, then start acting like you have a million dollars.
I dare you . . .
