Think like a Ninja

You didn’t know we were ninja experts here at The Winn Group, did you? Well… we’re not, but we’re great at finding creative solutions, and this picture made us think about how putting on the perspective of a ninja (or any perspective outside your own) can impact your success.

As a nonprofit or cause-centered organization, chances are you’ve already put yourself in someone else’s shoes which is why you do what you do. But sometimes the work of doing good gets hard. When it starts to feel like the ceiling is falling down around you, maybe it’s time to start thinking like a ninja. Instead of just seeing a hole in the ceiling, recognize an opportunity for creativity.

For example, if you are a church with not enough kids and teens to justify special services just for them, stop looking at your main service as an adult service. Find ways to incorporate them. Let them sing or play instruments with the worship team, serve communion, or share testimonies. (You also might consider this if you have the opposite problem – too many kids and not enough adults to minister to them).

So often we see the negative side of things, but a hole in the ceiling doesn’t have to be the end of the road. It can be the start of a new road! Challenge yourself to think like a ninja this week, and you just might find that what looked like a problem was really just an opportunity in disguise.
