Are you valuable?

A well-known speaker started his seminar by holding up a $100 note. In the room of 200, he asked,

"Who would like this $100 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 is still worth of $100.

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and grounded into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that comes our way. We feel that we are worthless in this World. 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.

Remember, GOD created you with a purpose ! ! !

Know your value, set your goals and march towards success...
