Know Your Worth (Weekly Inspiration #14)

A 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 $20 bill up. He then asked, “Who still wants it?” Still the hands were up in the air.
“Well,” he continued, “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 this $20?” Still the hands went into the air.
“We 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 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 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.

I like this inspirational story.  My only question is, How much would the $20 bill be worth if Andrew Jackson didn’t have that cool wavy hair?”  Or how about the $100 bill without Ben Franklin’s Mullet?

Would the $5 bill be worth more if we updated Abe Lincoln’s look?

What our country really needs to get this struggling economy going again is to make some money with some real value!  What we need is a bald man on some of our money!  Dwight Eisenhower was almost bald, and was on the old silver dollar but we no longer make that coin.  In this next election if we really want to fix our economy, let’s be sure to elect a candidate with little or no hair.

Just a thought…
