1 How Much Is Your Worth?

How Much Is Your Worth
I won't ask you, but I could tell, that for a number of times now you probably felt down, lost, discouraged or worst, worthless. But as you should also know by now; you get up, deal with it and (hopefully) learn from it.

But often, the fight with our own battles leaves us with the scars that tend to pull us and our confidence down. But should we really be asking, “Am I worth it?”

A famous lecturer started off a seminar by holding up a 1,000 Peso bill. A crowd of 200 had gathered to hear him speak. He asked, “Who would like this P1,000 bill?”
All hands went up.
“I am going to give this P1,000 to one of you but first, let me do this.”, said the man as he started to crumple the bill. After a few seconds, he asked the audience, “Who still wants it now?”
All hands were still raised.
“Well,” he replied, “What if I do this?” He then 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?”
Still, all the hands went up.
“My dear friends, I have just showed you a very important lesson today. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth a thousand Pesos Many times, life crumples us and grinds us into the dirt. We make bad decisions or deal with poor circumstances. We feel down. We feel worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. You are special! Don’t you ever forget that!”

Yes, “You are, and will always be worth it.”
