FWD: Don’t Underestimate Yourself!

$20 Bill

Sometimes  we just need to be reminded how special we are!  A  well-known speaker Started  off his seminar by:  Holding  up a $20.00 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 up the $20 Dollar Bill.   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 crumpled and dirty.

Now,  who still wants it?”, he asked.

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 $20.

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 to those who DO LOVE you.
  • The worth of our Lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but by WHO WE ARE and WHOSE WE ARE. 
  • You  are Special – Don’t  EVER forget it.

Count your Blessings, NOT your problems.”

If you do not pass this on, you may never know the Lives it touches, the Hurting hearts it speaks to, or the Hope that it can bring.
