I wanted to share this with all of you. A little humor, but a good message!
A speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked, "Who would like this $20 bill?"
Hands started going up.
He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this." He proceeded to crumple the dollar bill 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 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, here is 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 $20. Many times in life, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt either by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. When we are tempted to feel worthless or “less valuable”
we need to remember … no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. Each of us is a one of a kind masterpiece!
