The Big Ask Experiment

Love, love, love this idea put forth by Justin Wise at BeDeviant: The Big Ask Experiment. Basically, the notion is this: every day for one month, ask for something outrageous, out-of-the-ordinary, or just beyond your comfort zone, and see what happens.

I love this idea because I believe too many of us live life safely. We’re afraid to take risks. We’ve settled for what’s come easily. And, ultimately, we’re living sub-standard to the life God has in mind for us.

I also love the idea because it requires us to be honest and courageous. We all have unspoken desires that we’ve been too meek to pursue. The Big Ask Experiment may help us pursue those desires. And, as we do, we’ll be empowered and lifted up by the experience and the adrenaline it brings.

I haven’t made my list of requests just yet but likely they will be around work – asking for new business from prospective clients. One ask might come in negotiating a house purchase. I also hope to be open to asks that aren’t planned – things that arise in a conversation.

  1. I’ve decided to try this too! Working on making the list but not getting very far! I need to really dig deep into my heart to find those hidden desires!

  2. It is hard to come up with a list or to even find those opportunities in the everyday things to ask for something big. Pray for God to reveal those opportunities to you. I am finding that the asks come from deep within me, from my spirit, revealing latent dreams and desires. First comes the awareness, then the courage to ask. Good luck!
