“Push your lawn mower”
Pushing his lawn mower down the street in search of a lawn that needed his expertise. He was keenly aware that there is opportunity somewhere on this street. He also knew that this opportunity would not find him, he needed to find it.
Knocking on the door with the yard that needed mowing, he had no idea who would answer the door. No idea what kind of mood they would be in, all he knew is he had the answer to their need. They needed their lawn mowed and he had the expertise, the lawn mower and the time to get it taken care of.
Knock, Knock, Knock and the door opens and a lady opens the door with a big smile. He smiles back and asks if he could mow her lawn. After a few minutes of negotiation, he went to work on her lawn.
He needed a few dollars, she needed her lawn mowed, and a triple win was created.
When you have a need, there is someone who has a need that you are able to meet through your GPA (gifts, Passions, and Abilities). When the two of you come together and collaborate together you create a triple win.
The one you serve wins through having their need met, you win through having your need met, and future opportunities come through this new relationship of service.
Rather than sitting and lamenting over what you need, launch out and locate someone somewhere that needs your special blend of GPA.
