Itís a movie, a TV show, a video on You Tube, and more importantly a grassroots movement. For myself and many others itís a life style.
Pay It Forward, the movie about a school boy that believed in the goodness of human nature and the possibility that one person can change the world. His plan to make a good difference in peopleís lives created a ripple effect of good intentions.
On You Tube, one of the most frequently viewed videos was of the chain of Starbucks drive thru customers that paid for the drinks of the people in line behind them. For over an hour, and 100 cars, the generosity continued. Itís happened in toll booth lines.
Paying It Forward can be anytime, anywhere and for anyone. It doesnít always take money, sometimes itís a hand up, not a hand out. Itís taking those angel cards at Christmas and attaching a gift for someone youíll never know. Itís taking simple household items to a center for disaster victims. Itís spending time with a lonely elderly person, just listening and learning. Itís taking clothing to a homeless shelter, or childrenís books to an orphanage.
You donít have to be a celebrity or expect recognition to make a difference. Donít expect payback, and sometimes you wonít even get a thank you. Just know in your heart that youíve made a difference. Be the "pebble in the pond" that creates a ripple effect of good intentions.
This is what we do everyday. Educating people about the market conditions and what is best for them. Many times it may end up that it is not the right time for them to sell there present home or purchase a new one. There is so much more to the whole process than just putting a sign in the yard and showing clients homes. In that respect we "Pay It Forward" everyday.
Pay it forward.
