I think Pay it Forward is trying to get a message out to people saying that not only one person can change the world, but if multiple people actually tried to help, it could really make a difference. I think it also means that you shouldn't always think of yourself, but think of others also. If 3 people did good deeds for another 3 people each, I do agree that it will work and make the world a better place.
