A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a Rupee 500 note.
In the room of 200, he asked, “Who would like this Rupee 500 note?”
Hands started going up. He said, “I am going to give this note to one of you
but first let me do this.” He proceeded to crumple the note 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 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 Rupee 500/-.
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! Never let yesterday’s disappointments overshadow tomorrow’s dreams.
I have learnt…. Do not quit…. (professionally….. yeah! but personally….? read on)
– quit if quitting can make some one smile…..
– go if going away can bring some one closer and make someone smile
– bow if doing so can make your loved one feel better…..
after all…. life’s not just winning…. its sometimes losing to make your loved one win….
Love unconditionally….. without expecting…. 🙂
Life’s about giving…..
