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!
