Read an amazing piece today, sent by one of my friend! Copying it:
A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a 500 Rs note.
In the room of 200, he asked “Who would like this Rs 500 note?” Hand 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 stills wants it?” He asked
Still the hands went into the air. “My friends, you 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 Rs 500/-. Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that came 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.
When I read the first 2 paragraphs, I made a presumption that in the end the speaker will tear off the note and ask if anybody wants it then but the situation of tearing off the note dint ensueL I thought may be this wouldn’t have been relevant to the message which the writer wants to passJ
Anyways, I conveyed the same thing to my friend who had sent me this mail. And he answered my doubt with such a rational and valid explanation!
He said that if the speaker would have torn off the note and would have asked people if somebody wants it then obviously nobody would have said yes because after getting torn off, its value would have completely diminished! But before that whatever you do with the note, its value remains the same!
Now, same apply to people as well. Tearing of the note is like death of human. Before death may whatever happens to you, may whatever you go through, your value never goes down. Only and only death can erase your value with the body!
Keep smiling alwazzzzzzzz…….. and remember your are valuable forever.
