It's time for you. Can't juststops big ask question of the day. Welcome to you can't just stop theplace for quietly stubborn entrepreneurs with big goals and Greens. After encountering hundreds ofhigh achieving athletes, entrepreneurs and world changers, I've discovered that many times their impactcomes from the questions they ask as much as the actions they take.That's why I invite you to answer a question each and every day to reachyour goals. And now for today's question. What simple acts can I do topay it forward today? Well, with all the negativity on the news, you would think this world sucks. You might be right, but Ilike to think that it doesn't. I like to think that there are actuallygood people out there doing good things, and this whole idea of paying itforward is just proof of that. Right, I guess it's like be the changeyou want to see in the world.

If you want people that to dogood things, I guess you have to, you know, be theexample. You have to start. It has to start somewhere, and sotoday, you know, just look for some little things that you can doto pay it forward, to make somebody's Day. Brighter to help somebody out, give somebody helping hand. Recently, I won't go into the whole story, there's a long story, but recently my dad got into a little trouble. He had a situation and just some kind people, total strangers, steppedforward in that situation to help him out. That's the kind of thing I'm talkingabout. They expected nothing in return. They have no idea who he was, they have no idea who I am, I don't know who theyare. Can't thank them, but they just stepped up to help out anddo what they could. And you know, so just look for the little thingsthat I mean. We've heard things like, you know, by somebodysome starbucks, by them a coffee,...

...hold a door for someone. That'sreally easy and you know, I think, and it's sadly in this world welive in, I think that is unexpected anymore. I think that's areally low bar and crappy place to be. But when I hold the door forpeople nowadays, I get I don't know if strange looks, but surprisedlooks, like they're not expecting that. It's not normal and just as simpleact of that, something even that simple, can brighten someone's Day, pay itforward, start moving the needle, and of course you know it couldbe something much more substantial. But it doesn't have to be crazy to getthe ball moving. It just needs to be kind and without strings. Sowhat are you going to do today? See You tomorrow.
