    Making deposits in the cosmic bank in advance also allows the possibility of making withdrawls in the future. The whole world benefits.

  10. 11:24 am on March 30, 2011

    Hey Devon, I don’t need any incentive to promote your blog. It’s grrrrrrrrreat!

  11. I love the idea of paying it forward Devon. I like to think that I do that anyway by helping others who are not in my downline get their MLM off the ground. Great video & as always, your realness keeps me inspired & coming back…

  12. 11:29 am on March 30, 2011

    Hey Davon

    Thanks for the nice share!
    I have always been a pay-it-forward and karma believer and glad you feel
    the same too!

  13. 11:32 am on March 30, 2011

    Hey Devon
    Yet again, another powerfull video you offer us! Good job! I like how you think… being that you change your thinking from ‘what can you do for me?’ to ‘what can I do for you?’ Don’t expect anything in return, and you will be surprised at how well things start to look up for you down the road. I’m happy to share your video with my facebook followers. This wouldn’t be the first video I’ve shared, and I doubt it will be the last! Keep up the good work.

  14. Great stuff, Devon! I’m actually working on a way to help the people of Japan and job seekers around the world at the same time. Stay tuned for details…
    Oh, and if I am the first post, I’ll go ahead and pay it forward. Give the book (and it’s a good one!) to the next person.
    Cheers,
    Dave

    Devon, I had an opportunity to do a pay it forward just yesterday on a somewhat smaller scale. Hearing your story is very timely. Giving without out expecting produces unexpected returns at unexpected times. Keep on making it happen.

  19. 12:36 pm on March 30, 2011

    Hi Devon
    Once again you have hit the spot where you make us think. It is a good feeling to know that in today’s world that we can look at life and make a change for someone by just doing it. I have been with you for awhile and I feel that you are a down to earth person, please don’t change.

  21. 1:24 pm on March 30, 2011

    I completely believe in paying it forward and with you the best of luck….who got the book?

  22. 1:25 pm on March 30, 2011

    I menat wish you the best of luck good job on the video as its very well put together and casual. thanks

    Fascinating stuff Devon,

    Stuff that I’ve found has way more to do with an individual’s innate character that we’d label a Giver, than with any action we’d cognitely actually try to do. Like look for an opportunity to pass it foreward. Those opportunities happen virtually all the time, even daily to a natural Giver and they are very aware that it is a “Cost” of some sort to them. A cost that the traditional Marketing of our society would abhor, because they don’t see any immediate “Return” on their investment, but the Giver does – in the long term. And even if that’s nothing more than making a new dear friend that he can feel Good about producing. That’s payment enough, but those personalities are pretty rare. I’m thrilled to hear that you are one of them Devon, and I’ll make note of that to my social media friends.

  24. Hi Devon,
    Thanks for your enlightening videos as always.

    It’s a good quality to have “Pay It Forward” as you mention. Sometimes a person that can do
    you the greatest good is someone who does not look like they are capable of returning back to you what you have given them.

  25. Hi Devon,

    Sad part first. I have a fairly rare bone marrow disorder called myelofibrosis. It’s one of the many chronic leukemia’s and not a pleasant thing to live with.

    Good part. It was very difficult to find good information about this disorder so in January 2010 I decided that I would put up a website aggregating what I had found out so others, many of them internet challenged, would have an easy way of getting the latest information, the information they needed, all in one place. January 2010 had 16 unique visitors and this month it will be about 2500.

    The comments I have received from visitors who are sufferers or their family, friends, carers etc often give me a ‘warm fuzzy’ and also often bring a tear to my eye. Knowing that I have helped someone today is a nice feeling.

    It’s my way of paying it forward to these people who are often desperate for information. I’m sure there are many, many ways to pay it forward, It doesn’t have to involve money, it just has to help someone in need somehow.

    Thanks for the great video Devon and thank you for reading through my ramblings.

    Pay it forward everyone.

    Hey Devon,

    I don’t see any comments here yet, but I often can’t UNTIL I leave one, so I’ll assume I’m not the first (However, IF I am, let me start by passing the book you’re offering onto the next person). Great stories, thanks for sharing. I see you took “somebody’s” advice and you added some light to your video … much better (so the adding a window to the other side of the room was more of a hassle than a flood light?).

    I like the background affects … like electric COURSING through the room, NICE!!! You’re electric, Na na Na na Na na Na na Na … Na Na.

  27. 3:34 pm on March 30, 2011

    Those were very heart felt stories, because I have learned when you,
    when you do kind things for others from your heart, the results always
    chase you down and bring more to you than you could have thought or
    ever imagined..

    Thanks Devon for another Powerful Nugget !!

    PAY IT FORWARD !!

  28. Aloha Devon, cool video and it’s good to pay it forward and not to expect things back. Great stories and I know it is better to give than to receive. Keep it going! Glad I came by and thanks for sharing! Mahalo, Lani 🙂

  29. 3:35 pm on March 30, 2011

    Hi, great video. I will, do it at first opportunity i will have! When you give sb money, you can,t have it in the same time, but when you are giving good word, feelings etc. you don’t loose anythink, and this is what you did. 😉

  30. Awesome video and appreciate the topic! Paying it forward …. doesn’t always mean with money, pay it forward with recognition and promotion is huge. And just think Devon, if each of us would do that —- paying it forward with even one simple gesture a day, can you imagine the ‘attraction’ the connection we really all would have. Very inspiring and something to consider each and every day. Thank you for taking YOUR time to reach out and pay it forward!

  31. Devon, met you at CBMasters in Orlando and are still amazed at your dynamicness (word?)!! Your Pay-It-Forward video was inspiring and I actually did this yesterday…helped a guy at work that was needing to “borrow” rent money. Gave it to him and suggested that he help me write emails for my blasts instead of paying me back. My 1st employee??? Hmmmm… Keep doing great stuff!!!

  32. How true Devon ,It is another way of showing leadership and compassion among people that people will think of you as a wow what a nice person,..

  33. 10:22 pm on March 30, 2011

    Thanks Devon, I appreciate what you are saying, and that is the way I live my life. I started with out lower than the belly on a bullfrog and now I can ride on his back (bare back – working on getting a saddle (lol)). I’m movin’ slowly, but movin’ now the less.

  34. I don’t know if this counts as paying it forward but about every 2 weeks I give these two ladies at McDonalds where I buy my coffee everyday a dollar tip each because they are so nice and I know they don’t make anywhere near the money I do. Makes me feel good and I know they appreciate it.

  35. 3:13 am on March 31, 2011

    Say you thank you,that is something I try to do daily.God bless you always.

  36. Hi Devon,

    A very good video with a heartfelt message.

    I try to do this as much as I can, so my take on the “Pay It Forward” mentality is, when I get any product that has a reseller license stating it can either be sold or given away, where most of the other license holders choose the first option, I always choose the latter.

    This is my way of trying to help the 95%, especially the ones who have the desire to own there own online business but don’t have the kind of money to invest in any of those two to three hundred dollar training programs, let alone four figures to attend a seminar and boot camp.

    I have found in many of the training products, the authors will usually say “Only look for the people who have a large amount of disposable income and don’t even bother with the rest as you’re never going to make any money out of the Dead Beats” but that ideal is only going to help make the rich people richer while leaving the poor to stay in the gutter.

    My take on that is, if you Are able to turn a “Dead Beat” into a person with a large amount of disposable income, then you have not only Paid It Forward, you will also have gained a true friend for life.

    Regards
    David.

  37. I can never say much more than Thanks Devon! Prior to following your teachings. I have if nothing else achieved Forward Motivation and I don’t Mind saying once I start something I never give up and I WIN! You Brought that back from an Internet Recluse.

    You’ll Know!

    A Friend,
    Michael

    P.S. I Started the Pay it forward yesterday and continued it today. I see a Regular Homeless person on my way to work every day Yesterday I gave him a few Dollars and Again I gave him a few Dollars Today. Today I told Him… “Anytime I pass by here I will Give you something… What do you need?” He just said “Thanks Man any help is appreciated.” Where that goes from here as a pay it forward I don’t know yet. But the hard part is I have Space enough for them where I live. I am ready to offer He and his family a place to Live for a while so they can get things together.

    Would that be to wrong?

  38. Hi Devon, I was truly inspired when I saw your video. I have decided what I’m going to give and I think when I share that with the individual, he will be deeply grateful. It’s always a good feeling when you are able to share what you have with others. Continue to be the example.

    God bless you Brother!

    Demond
