Story : You Are Special – Don’t Ever Forget It

Soiled 20 dollar bill

A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 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 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, you have 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 is 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 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.

  1. i understand because you have most likely been born into islam like most of you are not realising that the quran was wrote 450 years after the bible and jehova gods name that was manifested 4500 years ago in the origional preserved book of genesis and exodus i have many muslim friends and believe me you must find god yourself not in the quran but in the holy bible jehovas law is inside and with accurate studying you will grow to know your god a fullfiller of promises and a loving creator roman catholic church is evil satan sits on the throne there the papas tradition from early babylonia pagan worshippers .. these are the last days and no false prophet or cleric feeding you his version is going to save you as jehova god detests violence and the poisonous tongue some thing is going to happen this year at the olympics in london and it will all be satans plan and doing it will be blamed on our islamic brothers and world war 3 will arise remember the evil ones, satans people on earth are trying to help fullfill a prophesy in the book of revelations from the bible the political system is the wild beast and if you dont have jesus in your heart shame on you all, may jehova have mercy on you all,, open your eyes you foolish people and put the pieces together, god bless you all.

  2. Does anyone actually know the speakers name? I really like this and want to use it at school in reflection but I’ll need the name.
