Twenty Dollars


A well-known speaker started  off his seminar by holding up a

$20.00 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 $20  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 crumpled and dirty. "Now, who still  wants it?"  Still the hands

went Into the  air.

"My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter

what was done 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. Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are

still priceless to those who DO love you. The worth of  our lives comes not

in what we do or who we  know, but by WHO WE ARE.

"You are special -  Don't EVER forget it."

Count Your blessings, not your problems.
