A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a Rupee
500 note. In the room of 200, he asked, “Who would like this Rupee 500
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 the hands were up in the
air. “Well,” he replied, “What if I do this?”
And he dropped it on the ground and?0?2started 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 Rupee 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 asthough 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.
VALUE HAS A VALUE ONLY IF ITS VALUE IS VALUED”
