You are special!

Suppose you are a well known speaker.

You start off a seminar by holding up a $20 bill.

In the room of 200, you ask, “Who would like this $20 bill?”

Hands start going up.

You say, “I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this.”

You proceed to crumple the dollar bill up.

You then ask, “Who still wants it?”

Still the hands were up in the air.

“Well,” you reply , “What if I do this?”

And you drop it on the ground and start to grind it into the floor with your shoes.

You pick it up, now all crumpled and dirty.

You say, “Now who still wants it?’ Still the hands went into the air.

You say, “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 $20.

Many times in our live, 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!
