Feminine women are all about nurturing, collaborating and contributing.
It’s in our DNA.
It’s who we are.
So, by doing what comes naturally, what if you could start a ripple which would touch £4.7million people’s lives in just two weeks?
What if this ripple could be started with just 3 simple random acts of kindness?
3 simple actions.
I wanted to share this with you today, because as women we tend to feel like we’re constantly doing everything for everyone else…but we don’t necessarily realise the impact that we have on other people’s lives.
We may not always get a thank you.
We may not feel that our efforts are acknowledged.
We may think from time to time ‘why do I bother?’
This is why.
We make a difference to other people’s lives.
…and together we can make an even bigger difference.
You see, I’ve spoken a lot lately about collaboration with regards to how it can help us in business…but collaboration and community is they key to enhancing almost anything we do.
That’s what Pay it Forward is about.
It is about people all over the world coming together to spread the exponential growth of kindness.
If one person does a random act of kindness for 3 people and each of those commit to pay it forward to 3 more people and each of those pay it forward to 3 more people, after 2 weeks, over 4.7 million people will have been impacted by those initial acts of kindness.
In 2006, Charley Johnson created the PIF bracelet as a physical reminder to do good, but also as a baton to pass to others when you do a random act of kindness for them. There are now over a million bracelets in 115 countries. Without it ever having been advertised.
Next week, on March 28th at 4pm (local time) there is a globally-coordinated flashmob event which I am taking part in.
Currently the flashmob will be taking place in around 70 locations worldwide, including London, Koh Samui, Sao Paulo, Cape Town, Chicago, LA, Belfast, Copenhagen, Brisbane and Auckland)
Check out this video which tells you all about it:
So get involved.
Do something today.
Find your local flashmob to join.
Or just make the decision to start paying it forward.
This is a ripple of kindness that will be felt around the world…do you want to be a part of it?
