A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a Rs 1000 note.
In the room of 500, he asked, "Who would like to have this note ?" Hands went up.
He said, "I will give this to one of you but first, let me do this."
He proceeded to crumple up the note . He then asked, "Who still wants it?" Still the hands were up in the air.
"Well", he continued, "What if I do this?" And he dropped it on the ground and , put his shoe on the note and crushed it . He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty.
"Now, who still wants it?" Still the hands went into the air.
"My friends, we 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 1000.
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.
Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless.
The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but by WHO WE ARE.
You are special- Don't EVER forget it.
