once I have started a seminar by holding up a $20 in left hand. A crowd of 350 had gathered to hear me speak.
i asked, “Who would like this $20 bill?”
200 hands went up.
i said, “I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this.” He crumpled the bill up.
i then asked, “Who still wants it?”
All 200 hands were still raised.
“Well,” i 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?”
All the hands still went up.
“My friends, I have just showed 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.
But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. You are special – Don’t ever forget it.
Cost, price and value are different aspects. Know it very properly. Value is most powerful among all these 3. In life, lots of time, it happened where you could be value ?
You get specific value in life. Never compromise with your value. Understand different between price and value also.
