Nelson Mandela Just Asked

For Impact Ideas | | Tom Suddes

A good friend of mine in Ireland (who, by the way, runs a fantastic anti-bullying program there) sent me an article from the Irish Times.

Article is written by Bono on his “friend Nelson Mandela”. Here’s the opening of the article:

    “He could charm the birds off the trees – and cash right out of wallets. He told me once how Margaret Thatcher had personally donated £20,000 to his foundation.
    “How did you do that?” I gasped. The Iron Lady, who was famously frugal, kept a tight grip on her purse.
    “I asked,” he said with a laugh. “You’ll never get what you want if you don’t ask.”

JUST ASK! We can now add Nelson Mandela to the list!

    “If you don’t ASK, you don’t get.” Gandhi
    The Bible says, “Ask and you shall receive.”
    In Hebrew, it’s “Rak B’vakaysh!! ONLY ASK!”
    “You’ll never get what you want if you don’t ask.” Nelson Mandela
