A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $ 500 Note. In the room
of 200, he asked, "who would like this $ 500?' Hands 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 the 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 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 $ 500"
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 Loose your

Hey john,
Here im pleasure to share my real experience with u.. what u conveyed in ur msg with small example that was already explained by one of our placement trainer in our college. He took Rs.500 note from his pocket and asked how much worth this note is, we all said Rs.500 and then he crumpled and grind into floor with his shoe then again took it and asked now what the worth of this note, we all again replied the same...And then he finally said i want u all to be like this note.. what ever trouble happened, By whom so ever it was happened, ur value should be like this note... tat was a wonderful message that we all got in our life by him..... and here u explained the nice to see this again and thanks a lot !!!!! for make me to recall it..
