You are special - Don't you ever forget it!


A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 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 crush into a ball the $20 dollar note.

He then asked, “Who still wants it?”
Still hands were up in the air.

“Well,” he replied, “What if I do this?” And he dropped it on the ground and started to crush it into the floor with his shoe.

He picked it up, now 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 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.

You are special - Don’t ever forget it! ♥
