Sometimes We need to be Reminded....

My First Post and I decided to post an Inspirational Story I heard from a very good teacher of mine while I was in Business School on how important it is to keep ourselves motivated and to remind ourselves the importance of valuing ourselves and our opinions and relationships we share with people....

Heres is the Story...

A Well-known speaker started off his Seminar by holding up a $20.00 dollar bill. In the room filled with 200 people, he asked, " Who would like this $20bill?". Hands started going up. Then the speaker said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this". He then proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill. He then asked his audience, "Who still wants it?" Still hands were up in the air. "Well", he replied, " What if I do this?" and he dropped the bill on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked the bill up, now completely crumpled and dirty and said, "Now, who wants this still?". Still hand went up into the air.

He then said, "My Friends, today we have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you all still wanted it because it didnot decrease in value. It is still worth the same $20.00. Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled and ground into dirt by the decisions we make and the different circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are hopeless and worthless and dont have the right to live in this world. But no matter what happens of what will happen. you will never lose your value because 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."

"So Friends, Don't Forget that You are Special....Don't Ever forget it....".
Please read this story and narrate to as many people as possible because you may never know the lives it touches, the hurting hearts it may heal or the hope that it can bring.

This story inspires me to always
"COUNT MY BLESSINGS and NOT MY PROBLEMS..."....
and in this way I was able to tackle any obstacles that faced me during the past few years with a very Happy Smile on my face. Because I knew that no matter what, the people who loved me all my life will continue to do so even though I have not reached Great Heights....

And Always remember to have Faith and Hope because "If God brings you to it... He will Bring you THROUGH it..."

Hope you liked this Inspirational Story...:-)
Thank You....
