Pay It Forward

IMG_1164I begin the week with a new client. I can’t think of a better way to begin it. I’ll pick up a refurbished vacuum cleaner in Green Hills, take care of some tax and admin issues and hit the ground running with a new client.

One thing I’ve noticed about some of the business people I follow on Twitter is that they do not take lightly small successes even if they are connected to multi-million dollar companies. It’s refreshing. It’s eye opening. It creates momentum.

When you undertake any task self-motivation is very important. Our egos don’t have to be stroked at every turn, but when we fail to see something as “small” as a new customer as something to give thanks for then we do ourselves and our team members a disservice when it comes to momentum and encouragement.

Life is hard, and even though I’m not one to try and get blood from a turnip I will say that many times I fail to take the smallest of blessings as encouragement to offer back to the world what it blesses me with.

My favorite actor Jim Caviezel had a homeless man role in a movie some years ago with Kevin Spacey and Haley Joel Osment called Pay It Forward. It was a brilliant flick that started a craze of people doing random acts of kindness.

Gestures of encouragement and hope are never wasted, and even if it’s simply to buy The Contributor, not only do you get a great paper, but you get a heart felt thank you and God bless you.

Let’s pay it forward good people.
