Have you watched the movie “Pay it Forward?” I’ve watched this for the first time I think in 2003 and no movie has ever surpassed it on my top movies of all time.
It’s a 2000 movie which stars Haley Joel Osment, yeah you’re right the kid from Sixth Sense. He is co-starred by Kevin Spacey. The movie centers on the assignment of young Trevor (Osment) given by his teacher played by Kevin Spacey. The assignment requires that the each student helps three people with the condition that the people they’ve helped would help three more. Trevor however touched a number of people more than he planned. The phenomenon ‘Pay it Forward’ went almost all throughout
I think I’ve had enough of being a spoiler for those who have not watched it. Better rent a video or buy one if you haven’t watched it.
Now, I’d like to talk about the concept of ‘Pay it Forward’. The concept is so simple that if we could only try it for ourselves then this world would be a happier place. It’s as simple as ABC. You help three people and tell them that instead of paying it back, PAY IT FORWARD to three other people who in turn would also do the same. If I’d be asked, three would have been a little difficult and helping one person is more than enough. But it’s not about the numbers, it’s all about doing something great for others. A simple gesture say, giving a smile to someone could help him brighten up his or her day.
Helping others even through the smallest ways could not only be a rewarding feeling because somehow you’ve contributed to make this world a better place.
Now, have you helped someone today? Have you inspired someone to do some good deed for others? Well, I hope I did..
