Sometimes we just need to be reminded!
A well-known speaker started off by holding up a £20 note. In the room of 200, he asked, 'Who would like this £20 note?' Hands started going up so he said, 'I am going to give this £20s to one of you but first, let me do this.
He proceeded to crumple up the £20 note.
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 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.
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 and WHOSE WE ARE.
Count your blessings, not your problems; remember: amateurs built the ark .... professionals built the Titanic.
So remember, whatever you have in your life is a blessing. Strive to have an even better life. Never look back at negative things. Take those as they come, learn from them and forget them, Be positive all day and most of all be happy with yourself and what is around you. When you do this, you will feel better in yourself and because of this you will achieve more in your life and attract those things and people you want in your life.
I wish you an outstanding day, today and always.
