a story for motivation

Do you feel you r worthless? Are you frustrated in life, with your work, feeling abyssmally low and depressed feeling you are heading no where? Does ur future looks as blank as a printer paper? Do you see a question mark infront of you when you think "what's next ?" Ok, in short - are you a grad student?....May be this story would help you feel better...atleast it did for me!
A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $100 bill. In the room of 50, he asked, "Who would like this $100 bill??
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 crumple the note 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 all 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 was still worth $100.Many times in your 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.You are special. Don't ever forget it!
