A well-known speaker started off his speech 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 began to press the dollar bill firmly with his fingers.
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 kick it into the floor with his shoe.
He picked it up， now all broken 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 become less in value. It was still worth $20. Many times in our lives， we are dropped and pressed into the dirt by the decisions we make and the conditions 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. You are special - Dont ever forget it！”
