It's a book (an AWESOME book). And now it's a movie (starring Helen Hunt).
But most of all it's modern magic that we can bring to everyone's lives.
We have all been taught to repay favours, but pay it forward is a little different... A stranger does something nice for you, not wanting or expecting payback... And as a result you do something nice for a different stranger, again not expecting payback, but just asking them to pay it forward.
Can you imagine how fast this positive magic would spread if everyone who had something nice done for them then went out and did something nice for three other people?
Some examples I've seen include :
-During Hurricane Sandy, a note on a front gate read "We have power. Please feel free to charge your phone!"
- A man, his wife and their one-year-old child went to have dinner and found this written on the bottom of their cheque "Someone once bought our dinner when we were young parents. It made quite a mark on us. Enjoy!"
So today I challenge you to start this process in your life - and watch the magic spread.
I look forward to hearing what you did in the days to come!
