Pay it forward

pay-it-forwardPaying it forward!

This blogpost is dedicated to the principle of paying it forward. As wonderfully depicted in the American movie released in 2000. Featuring a much younger, but still amazingly acting Kevin Spacey, Hellen Hunt and the kid from the Sixth Sense. (Yes, the “I see dead people” boy, Haley Joel Osment). The idea is wonderfully simple but highly impact full.

An idea to change the world…

Kevin Spacey plays a social science teacher, who — at the beginning of the school year — gives his first grade students an interesting assignment: Think of an idea to change the world — and put it to action. The reactions of the children range from crazy to lame. But Kevin urges them to look for the possibilities.

Pay it forward!

Our little boy hero — Trevor — presents an amazing plan. He will help-out 3 people. But it has to be something big. Something they can’t do themselves. And then they need to help 3 others in the same way. By paying it forward numbers add up pretty fast. As wonderfully questioned in the movie: Utopian? Perfect world scenario? So what!

Become someones hero

My definition of a hero is an extraordinary person who does extraordinary things. I believe the world needs more heroes. We need to help each other out. And — by paying it forward — we can have a huge impact on our world. Small actions do make a big difference, if you add them up.


So? Who will you help today? Watch a clip from the movie for inspiration!

Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!
