True worth can never be diminished. Know your true wealth.

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”, he said, “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. Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless…. and especially to those who love you.

The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or whom we know, but by WHO WE ARE.

What value do you give yourself?

Do you equate your value to your perception of success?  Is your success measured by how wealthy you are?  What does wealthy mean to you?  Personally, I love Roger Hamilton’s definition of wealthy. In this video he explains the wealth paradox.  Enjoy!
