Pay It Forward
The expression “Pay It Forward” is used to describe the concept of asking that a good deed be repaid by having a good deed passed along to someone else instead. The phrase popularized by the movie by the same name suggests that the world can and must become a better place. In the movie, a 7th grade teacher poses the assignment. “Think of an idea to change our world-and put it into action! One student thoughtfully comes up with a math formula….strange it seems…until you think about it.
Just imagine, you do a favor that really helps someone and tell him or her not to pay it back, but to pay it forward to three other people who in turn, each pay it forward to three more. Does it seem like an overly utopian idea? Can we really make a difference? Could it really work? Is it possible?
The real beauty of the success of Paying It Forward is that it can be the small things that make the biggest differences. Open a door for someone, smile, or help someone needing a helping hand. Those small acts of kindness will create a shift in the minds of people all over the world and it is happening now.
