Some people have an inflated image of their reality. Then there are those who have a good grip on who they are, and their range of abilities and self worth.
Unfortunately, there are also those people who suffer from a debilitating condition involving their self-beliefs that can actually lead to a shortened lifespan and physical health problems that arise from stress.
This short story may help you change your perspective about your own self worth…
A popular speaker started off a seminar by holding up $20.
A crowd of 200 had gathered to hear him speak.
He asked, “Who would like this $20 bill?”
He said, “I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this.”
He crumpled up the bill.
He then asked, “Who still wants it?”
All 200 hands were still raised.
“Well,” he replied, “What if I do this?”
Then he dropped the bill on the ground and stomped on it with his shoes.
He picked it up, and showed it to the crowd.
The bill was all crumpled and dirty.
“Now who still wants it?”
My friends, I have just shown you a very important 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, life crumples us and grinds us into the dirt.
We make bad decisions or deal with poor circumstances.
We feel worthless.
Yet, no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.
You are special…
Don’t ever forget it!
