​A popular speaker started off a seminar by holding up a $20 bill. A crowd of 200 had gathered to hear him speak. He asked, “Who would like this $20 bill?”

200 hands went up.

He said,”I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this.” He crumpled the bill up.

He then asked,”Who still wants it?”

All 200 hands were still raised.

“Well,”he replied. “What if I do this?” Then he dropped the bill on the ground and stomped on it with his shoes.

He picked it up, and showed it to crowd. The bill was all crumpled and dirty.

“Now, who still wants it?”

All the hands still went up.

“My friends, I have just showed you a very important lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it didn’t decrease in value. It was still worth $20. Many times in our lives, live crumples us and grinds us into the dirt. We make bad decisions or deal with poor circumstances. We feel worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. You are specialDon’t ever forget it.
