About value

Someone forwarded this to me...thots of sharing..

A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $500/- note. Inthe room of 200.

He asked, " Who would like this 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 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, 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 $ 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. "
