Think BIG!

think_big_by_babekha

A man was caught and thrown into a pit of about “40 feet” deep, just because he was a stranger. He struggled trying to get out of the pit, but the more he tried, the weaker his muscles became. He said to himself, “I don’t know how to get myself out of this. Maybe I should just die instead of enduring these miserable struggles and pains.”

Just then, he heard a voice screaming, “Help! Help!! Help!!!” The shouts were coming from another pit, which was “10 feet” deeper than the one he was in. He thought to himself, “Wow, so there is somebody else like me trapped here too.”

Listening carefully, he heard some cracking and sand dropping from the wall of the pit of the other victim. Immediately he summed up his courage and with his last bit of strength, started crawling little by little until he made it out of his pit.

Morals of the Story:

That pain you think you are passing through, there are people worst off than you. Always say something sweet to yourself. Always smile at your pains. Let them be; they are just there for a while and also to challenge you. Today may be your darkest hour, but your joy will come in the morning.

Try to encourage yourself. Look at yourself in the mirror, beat your chest and say, “I can make it and I can stand the test of time.”

Always try to face your worst fear because nothing GOOD comes easy. You must be UNCOMFORTABLE to get to your COMFORT ZONE.

Think BIG!

What is the value of a 20$ bill?

Money_Dollar_Crumpled_12-20-09_D4_3627VNT_largeA well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a 20$ bill. In the room of 200 persons 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, you have learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to this 20$ bill, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth 20$.”

Many times in our lives, we are droppe, 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 happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. You are special – Don’t forget it!
