Pay It Forward



I stay positive by telling someone else how he/she inspires me to look at myself differently (be it he/she positive attitude, sense of style, leadership attributes, or as simple as how he/she says good morning to everyone).

More Information:

Pointing out someone else's positive character traits allows me to reflect on my own. It is always easier to look at someone else than to look in the mirror. By paying forward I am giving something positive to someone else and thus not focusing on the negative.
