A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a rupee 500 Currency.
In the room of 200, he asked, “who would like this Rupee 500 Currency?” 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 crumble the currency 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 in to the floor with his shoe, He picked it up, now all crumpled and dirty, “Now who still wants it ?”
Still the hands went in to the air, “My friends, you have all learned a vary 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 rupee 500/- Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground in to the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless, But no mater what has happened or what will happen , you will never lose your value.
You are special. Don’t ever forget it! Never let yesterday’s disappointments overshadow tomorrow’s dreams.
“VALUE HAS A VALUE ONLY IF ITS VALUE IS VALUED”

Imagine you’re at the airport. While you’re waiting for your flight, you buy a box, put them in your traveling bag and then you find a seat next to a gentleman and sit down and enjoy your cookies. You reach down into your traveling bag and pull out your box of cookies. As you do so, you notice that the gentleman starts watching you intensely.
He stares as you open the box and his eyes follow your hand as you pick up the cookie and bring it to your mouth. Just then he reaches over and takes one of your cookies from the box, and eats it! You’re more than a little surprised at this. Actually, you’re at a loss for words. Not only does he take one cookie, but he alternates with you. For every one cookie you take, he takes one.
Now, what’s your immediate impression of this guy? Crazy? Greedy? He’s got some nerve?! Can you imagine the words you might use to describe this man to your associates back at the office? Meanwhile, you both continue eating the cookies until there’s just one left. To your surprise, the man reaches over and takes it. But then he does something unexpected. He breaks it in half, and gives half to you. After he’s finished with his half he gets up, and without a word, he leaves.
You think to yourself, “Did this really happen?” You’re left sitting there dumbfounded and still hungry. So you go back to the kiosk and buy another box of cookies. You then return to your seat and begin opening your new box of cookies when you glance down into your traveling bag. Sitting there in your bag is your original box of Cookies — still unopened.
Only then do you realize that when you reached down earlier, you had reached into the other man’s bag, and grabbed his box of cookies by mistake. Now what do you think of the man? Generous? Tolerant?

Now, think of this story as it relates to your life. Seeing things from a new point of view can be very enlightening. Think outside the box. Don’t settle for the status quo. Be open to suggestions. Things may not be what they seem. This week try questioning ONE paradigm you have been holding onto for years and see the difference……and…….
