Orrin Woodward: Net Worth versus Net Impact
Financial success enables a person to live out his or her life purpose. That fulfillment increases happiness, which in turn fuels success. Radical Action for Life calls it “the unstoppable cycle of success”. As this cycle gains momentum, a person can make a huge positive impact on the world. Internationally-renowned entrepreneur and leadership expert, Orrin Woodward, encourages us to focus on making a net impact rather than building net worth.
In his article, “Net Worth versus Net Impact”, Mr. Woodward describes the inspiring efforts of Tim Ballard, the founder and CEO of Operation UnderGround Railroad (OUR). This organization is dedicated to helping free children from sex slavery, which is growing around the world. Mr. Ballard resigned from his high-paying job with the Department of Homeland Security and set upf this charity designed to work with foreign governments to break up the child sex slave rings. Here’s what Orrin Woodward has to say about Tim Ballard and Operation Underground Railroad:
So many believe financial success is about maximizing net worth, but in the LIFE Community, we feel differently. What if, instead of maximizing financial net worth, people focused on maximizing financial net impact? After all, we aren’t taking any money with us anyway when we leave this world, so why not focus on making a net impact rather than building net worth?
This is the purpose of All Grace Outreach (AGO), a foundation designed to help the LIFE Community have an impact by making a difference. In fact, 100% of the corporate profits for the AGO series (one Christian-based book and CD per month) flow into the foundation to be given away to charities who serve others. For example, at our Des Moines Leadership Convention, Chris Swanson, our All Grace Outreach (AGO) Spokesman, invited Tim Ballard, the founder and CEO of Underground Railroad, to share his mission. Operation Underground Railroad (OUR) is an organization developed to help free children from sex slavery, a slavery that is growing yearly. Shockingly, Ballard stated that there are nearly as many people in slavery (the Physical Matrix) today as at any time in recorded history.
Whereas the Financial Matrix is the biggest system of control, the Physical Matrix is also growing and Operation Underground Railroad is helping set the children free. Tim Ballard, to say the least, is a rare gem. Frustrated by his inability to truly make a difference in the lives of the sex-abused children, he resigned from his cozy, comfortable, and compensated Department of Homeland Security government job, to do the unthinkable – start a charity to free the children. Most of his associates thought he was nuts to leave his secure job to launch such a demanding and dangerous undertaking, designed to work with foreign governments to break up the child sex slave rings. read entire article…
