As we are in the holiday spirit at this time of year it is a good time to think about what good we can all do around us in very simple but possibly life changing ways.
There is no other time of the year that our society is filled with the emotional desire to do good deeds and create good will. It is an opportunity for every one of us to make this world a better place to be.
I am putting out a challenge to everyone. It is a simple and powerful gift that everyone can give that will ultimately benefit a large number of people. It is called “PAYING IT FORWARD”.
Some of you may remember a movie called “Pay It Forward”. It is the story of a child who does one good deed for a person and in return, the person who received the good deed must pay that good deed forward to three other people. As time passed, the good deed movement built to affect thousands of people around the world. It was a powerful alteration in human spirit and good will.
So, here is the challenge! Within the next 2 weeks do a good deed for someone that you WOULD NOT otherwise do and state very clearly to the recipient that they MUST repay the good deed by paying it forward to three other people. When they do their good deeds, they MUST repeat the same words so that the next generation of recipients will pay it forward to three other people and so on and so on.
“WE NEVER KNOW HOW FAR REACHING SOMETHING WE THINK, SAY, OR DO TODAY WILL AFFECT THE LIVES OF MILLIONS TOMMOROW.”

Every single one of us has the power to significantly affect our society. It is up to us to take the step to create good in the lives of others around us.
As the next year passes by, we will all benefit either directly or indirectly from these good deeds. Were often not consciously aware of these benefits; however, if it weren’t for the good deeds of people in our society we wouldn’t be able to enjoy life as much as we do now.
