Good Philosophical Note

A good philosophical note.

A well-known speaker started off his seminar by
holding up a $20.00 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 crumple up the $20 dollar bill.

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 crumpled and dirty.

"Now, who still wants it?"

Still the hands went into the air.

"My friends, we have all learned a very valuable
No matter what I did to the money,
You still wanted it because it did not decrease in
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.
Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are
still priceless to those who DO LOVE you.
The worth of our lives comes not in what
we do or who we know, but by WHO WE ARE.
You are special -
Don't EVER forget it."
