Retirement Resources President and Investment Advisor, Dave Boike, tells readers the original source of the phrase “pay it forward” and makes a few suggestions about how to pay it forward as a way of expressing gratitude for all the good in life.
Auburn Hills, MI — November 15, 2019— Dave Boike, President of Retirement Resources and co-author of The Ultimate Success Guide with Brian Tracy published a new blog post on the company website entitled, “The Many Ways Of Expressing Gratitude Include Paying It Forward,” in which Mr. Boike explores ways of paying it forward.
Boike writes, “You may have first heard the expression “pay it forward” as the title of the movie with Haley Joel Osment back in the year 2000.” “Since then,” he says, “it has become a fairly popular expression. But, you may not know that Benjamin Franklin is the one who came up with the concept of paying it forward and described it as an alternative form of giving, a sort of “trick for doing a deal of good with a little money”.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alternative_giving
“This month,” says Boike, “I’m talking about paying it forward as a way of expressing gratitude for so many things. For instance, how would you apply this concept in showing gratitude for your parents?” “This is how I see it,” he writes, adding, “When you consciously establish a financial plan that includes the ability to help take care of your parents as they age, that is a way of “doing a deal of good with a little money”.”
According to Boike, “Giving to causes that you consider to be worthy is also a form of paying it forward. You are sharing your good with others which is also a way of showing gratitude.”
This is the time of year that most people turn their attention to being thankful for all the good in life.
Taking the time to sit down with a professional financial planner/advisor and establish a way to take care of your family, the kids as well as aging parents, is a beautiful way to show how much you care and how grateful you are. And, when you pay it forward you set an example and your family will likely do the same as they move into adulthood. That could establish a habit of paying it forward for generations to come.
