“If you don’t ask, the answer is always no.”
Someone asked us this week … “How do you convince people/places/etc. to let you do these things with Ahab?”
The answer to that is very simple: WE ASK!!
Literally everything we have done with Captain Ahab up to this point is because we took the first initiative. Believe it or not, the phone isn’t ringing off the hook with offers and sponsors aren’t knocking down our doors. Asking is a big part of everything we do.
We are always asking our fans and friends what is on their to-do lists (we keep a secret log just in case we can ever help with them). One of our favorite responses was, “I want to ride in the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile.” It was an incredible idea to us at the time and was definitely added to Ahab’s List. We asked, “What are you going to do to make this happen?” to which she replied with a blank stare. We then went on to explain to her that, believe it or not, there was a very, very, very slim chance that a giant hot-dog on wheels would just pull up into her driveway one day if she didn’t work toward figuring out how to make it happen.
For her and for us, ASKING really is the only way to come closer to achieving the end-goal, however crazy or outlandish or impossible it may seem. And ultimately, it all comes back to you, because you’re the ones joining us on these adventures!
This weekend, try to think of a goal that seems out of reach and consider what you’d need to do (/ask!) to make it more attainable … OR just sit on your couch and be a bum, but don’t you dare ask us to join you for that!
