Life is full of hardship,s not just for any one but everyone. But as heat polishes metals to their finest form, so does the hardships in life. Remember it is you to decide how to make yourself affected by the circumstances that you face. Polish yourself and you’ll be worth everything in life. This short story will inspire to realize that the true worth lies in oneself and not the situations we face.
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 $20 bill?”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 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 still wants it?” Still the hands went into the air.
“My friends, you 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. You are special – Don’t ever forget it!
Realize your worth and never give up on yourself no matter how tough your life is. You will just glitter in life after all the heat.
