You are special - Don’t 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 $20bill?”
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 the dollar bill 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 onthe ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe.
He picked it up, now all crumpled and dirty. “Now who stillwants it?” Still the hands went into the air.
“My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. Nomatter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it didnot decrease in value. It was still worth $20. Many times in our lives, weare dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and thecircumstances that come our way.
We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter whathas happened or what will happen, you will never lose yourvalue. You are special - Don’t ever forget it!
