On a recent flight to a speaking engagement I read an article entitled Paying It Forward. You gotta know this title grabbed my attention! Pay It Forward? Live It Forward? Come on now…pay it forward ideas and live it forward ideas are cut from the same cloth.
The article was about how much Denzel Washington gives, both personally and financially, to the Boys and Girls Club of America. As I read it, several pay it forward ideas pop into my mind that I wanted to share with you.
In fact, I was so excited to share these pay it forward ideas that I couldn’t wait until I flew back home. Here’s a quick video I shot at about 11:30 PM in my hotel room. I was tired and had to be extra quiet, but I knew I wouldn’t be able to sleep until I shared a few of the pay it forward ideas that were rolling around in my head.
Pay It Forward Ideas:
Question — Have you “paid it backwards?” Is there someone from your past who positively impacted your life? Have you said thank you? If not, be sure you do! Also, champion that person here by posting a comment about how he or she influenced you.
Idea — Are you paying it forward with the next generation? If “yes,” I’d love to hear about it here. If not, I hope the pay it forward ideas shared in this video will help you get started.
