Never lose your value!

Something great I picked up from a forward:

A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a Rs. 500 note. In the room of 200, he asked, “Who would like this Rs. 500 note?”

Hands started going up. He said, “I am going to give this note to one of you, but first let me do this.” He proceeded to crumple the note up. He then asked, “Who still wants it?” Still hands were up in the air.”Well,” he replied, “What if I do this?” And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now all crumpled and dirty. “Now, who still wants it?” Still the hands went into the air. “My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth Rs. 500/-. ”

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. You are special.

Don’t ever forget it! Never let yesterday’s disappointments overshadow tomorrow’s dreams.

    Agree with you on this post : )

    Friends are special since when we lie crumpled, they make us feel valuable. ‘Friends’ do not constitute the small circle existing within our mind but anyone who lends us the needed hand. Probably my thoughts are at tangent to the subject.
