PAY IT FORWARD FRIDAY- November 8th, 2013

November 8th, 2013 PAY IT FORWARD FRIDAYS Act of Kindness

Encourage a Stranger

We all have bad days, we all have down times and periods in our lives where things just seem to never go our way. It is during these times a word of encouragement can go a long way. Sometimes it comes from a loved one or a friend but sometimes that encouragement can come from a total stranger and the strange thing is….sometimes the encouragement from a stranger goes a lot further than from a loved one.

So today I am asking you to encourage a stranger or even someone you don’t know very well. I will even take it a step further this week and ask that you encourage a stranger I am going to encourage. His name is Aaron. He is the son of a facebook friend of mine. He has found himself in the middle of a hard time right now and is currently serving a sentence in prison. I do not know how long, I do not know why all I know is that he is going through a tough time and with the holidays close at hand he is growing more and more discouraged. So with your help maybe we can send him some encouragement so he can make it through this tough time in his life.


Here is the message from his mom:
I hate to ask for help, but I need to.  Holidays are already hard on inmates so God gave me an idea. I’m asking for anyone who feels led, to send him a note of encouragement. {especially MEN} I want him to be bombarded over the next 30 days with whatever God lays on someone’s heart to share with him. …I just think it would be good for him to hear from other people besides his parents. Plus, kids don’t always hear what mom and dad have to say.

If you send a card, keep it plain…no glitter, music, etc. they will throw it away or return it to you if it has any of those things because they’re SO picky.

Thank you so much, I appreciate you!

Thanks everyone. Enjoy your Friday!!!!

Pay It Forward Friday- September 13th, 2013


September 13th, 2013 PAY IT FORWARD FRIDAY Act of Kindness

Today’s act of kindness is so simple and yet so often overlooked. How many times have you had poor service or an issue with some kind of service and you immediately ask for the manager to complain or deal with the issue at hand? Now in comparison how many times have you had good or great service and never asked to speak to a manager to let him/her know of the awesome service you just had? In most cases it is usually the negative experiences that most often get the attention. Well today we are going to change that and hopefully make a decision to change this more in the future.
Today you will surely be served by someone. It may be at a coffee shop, it may be at the local cleaners, it may be at a local restaurant or it may even be a cashier at the grocery store. As this happens today I want you to focus on something positive that happens during the interaction. Then I simply want you to ask for the manager once that transaction is done. Please notice the reaction of the server at this time. When the manager arrives simply tell the manager of the positive experience you just had and make sure to compliment the server.

This is a great way to PAY IT FORWARD today and it will cost you NOTHING!!!!


Change a life today for the better.

Pay It Forward Friday August 30th, 2013

August 29th, 2013 PAY IT FORWARD FRIDAY Act of Kindness



Chances are you are a parent or a grandparent and if you are not chances are you have a niece or a nephew or if nothing else you know a kid. At least give me that!!! : ) I recently had the pleasure of being asked to appear on a television show called Creating Cooperative Kids with Bill Corbett. This is a public access show that goes to over 250 affiliates with a about 10,000 people watching in each location. ( 2.5 million people). My discussion with Bill involved speaking about how parents can influence their kids to pay it forward. As I stated on the show… ” once a child understand that they, one person, they make a difference in the world guess what happens to their self esteem, guess what happens to their self worth and their self confidence. Guess what happens to bullying in school when kids don’t have to pick on others to make themselves feel better. Guess what happens to bullying in schools when a child’s self worth is so strong that someone calling them a name doesn’t even phase them. Guess what happens when a young person feels so good about themselves that they don’t have to turn to drugs, or alcohol or peer pressure to feel better about themselves. ” So today…I want you to get a child involved and teach them the power of kindness by PAYING IT FORWARD!!! Today is wild card Friday….you get to choose what you want to do however you have to do it with a child and or teach a child how to do it and then make sure they do it. ( Some examples: taking some old toys that they don’t use anymore and donate them, read to a younger child, give someone a hug, open a door for several people, let a child pay a toll, let a child pick someone at a restaurant for whom you can buy a dessert or a coffee, make a card for a local firefighter or policeman or anyone). Please send us emails or reply on our facebook what you choose to do and if you can take pics and send us them so we can use them here.


See below my segment on the Creating Cooperative Kids show if you would like to watch it.

I love this idea. I first came across it a few years ago but was recently reminded by it in a recent issue of PAY IT FORWARD x 1 Million Magazine. As I interviewed Ben Sholl of Merry Maids, he shared a story about a free house clean they did for a woman who had just lost her dear husband to brain cancer. As they entered the house to do the clean, they were told they could clean the whole house except for the upstairs bedroom mirror. Hmmmm wonder why…well when they got to the bed room they soon realized why they were not to clean the mirror. Written on the mirror, in black marker, were the words from the husband to his wife prior to his death…” I will always be with you honey, I will love you always.” WOW… words from her deceased husband, written with his own hand and she did not want that gone, EVER!!!!

The other day in a networking meeting were challenged ( thanks SHARON LITTLE) to take a dry erase marker and simply write something positive in the mirror for each of us to see each day. I will add, not only us personally but anyone else who uses that mirror. Something positive, something encouraging, something inspiring…so as we look into that mirror we see ourselves and the see the positive wording with that at the same time and associated ourselves with something positive. SO POWERFUL!!!

Today’s act of kindness is for YOU and for those you are the closest. Simple take a dry erase marker ( make sure it is not a Sharpee unless you want it to stay permanently) and write something positive, encouraging, motivational, empowering of encouraging in one, or more, of your mirrors today. Leave it there for at least the next week or perhaps change it from time to time or better yet have each person in your household take turns writing something positive on the mirror each day.

PAY IT FORWARD FRIDAY- June 14th, 2013

PAY IT FORWARD FRIDAY!!!! Today’s Act of Kindness is very simply to give a hug to someone. No reason whatsoever. Simply ask if you can give that person a hug and when they say yes…hug away!!!!
A few years ago I was a practicing chiropractor and acupuncturist. A lady in her early 70’s came in for pain control for a terminal cancer diagnoses. She was very bitter and angry. As treatment progressed I could see she was getting worse. Something told me one day to give her a hug. Each visit there after I gave her a hug. I told her to go home and start giving hugs, as many as she could could all day long. She passed away a few months later. … About a year later I stood at the gas station putting gas in my truck. A man in the car behind me walked up to me and asked if I was Dr. Steele? I said yes. He shook my hand and said THANK YOU!! He asked if I remembered a woman who came in with terminal cancer whom I told to start giving hugs. I stated yes. He said she was my mother. My mother was an angry, bitter woman towards the end of her life to the point we could not get close to her at all. ” I am not sure exactly what you told her about your hugs to her and about her giving us hugs but the last few months of her life were some of the most loving months I have ever had with my mom. THANK YOU!!!!

 Hugs make a difference. Give a hug today!!!! Then we ask that you take the 90 Day Hug Challenge. WE DARE YOU!!!. All details here.
