Pay it Forward

Last weekend we watched a great movie called Pay it Forward.
You’ve seen it right ?  It stars Kevin Spacey and Haley Joel Osment (among others).
The idea goes back way before the movie (produced in 2000)
Wikipedia describes it as
Pay it forward is an expression for describing the beneficiary of a good deed repaying it to others instead of to the original benefactor.
So what does this have to do with business…and Internet Marketing?
Paying it forward is a random act of kindness, involving 2 people –
Those who forego their debt
And those who give something of value to a person that is more in need then themselves.
It’s a big thing to do….and in reality not such an easy task to undertake.
But here is what we can do – every day.
See – Internet marketing is a highly visible profession.
Like pop stars, those at the top of their game are seen on leaerboards, charts and competitions.

With Social Media this becomes magnified.

Those who understand that the world is an abundant place, and help others achieve success – end up being successful themselves.
Jealousy is one of the most common problems in business – like rot it spoils all else that is good inside us.
Once we understand this and overcome it, to help others celebrate their success –
(by promoting their products, advising when things going wrong or just adding a kind word in public)
Things start to move much faster in our favour.
To your success
