A popular speaker started off a seminar by holding up a $20 bill. A crowd of 200 had gathered to hear him speak. He asked, “Who would like this $20 bill?”
200 hands went up.
He said, “I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this.” He crumpled the bill up.
He then asked, “Who still wants it?”
All 200 hands were still raised.
“Well,” he replied, “What if I do this?” Then he dropped the bill on the ground and stomped on it with his shoes.
He picked it up, and showed it to the crowd. The bill was all crumpled and dirty.
“Now who still wants it?”
All the hands still went up.
“My friends, I have just shown you a very important 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, life crumbles us and grinds us into the dirt. We make bad decisions or deal with poor circumstances. We feel 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!

I used to go to play badminton during the weekend at morning time. Most often I accompanied with some of my office friends.
Also, I used to call one of my relative to join our badminton group. But he never interested in playing badminton & not interested in joining our group.
Currently, we are enjoying our summer in our country. It’s too hot & we can’t even walk outside during the day time.
As usual, One fine day I called my relative to join the badminton, he said that I can’t play any game during the summer time.
I just remembered his last response on winter time. When I called winter time, he has replied that he can’t play any game any winter time.
Time is a created thing, if you want to play any game, just go out and indulge your time. Do not wait for summer or winter.
Time is Yours.!
I was jogging in the park at evening time. It really boosts my energy and removes my bad mood Every day.
While jogging, I saw a cat in the green field. I stopped my jogging and got an eagerness to watch that cat. Seems, the cat came for a jogging too :P.
When I return back to my home, I was just remembering my olden days’ story of ‘Cat & Rat(Tom& Jerry)’.
From that story, the rat always thinks that cat would be the strongest animal in the world and never think about other strongest animal(lion, tiger, dog etc.,).
Likewise, in our life, we always think about our immediate managers, our immediate relations, our immediate connections, etc., We forget to think about our biggest success due to these small struggles.
We just need to avoid our immediate struggles and move out, If you move out you would WIN the biggest success.!
Trust takes the year to develop but only moments to destroy in our life. Once your trust was broken by someone, you will never get a chance to prove it.
First, Trust on you & your trust will bring trust on others. Don’t cheat others and never cheated by others, be careful in this world.!
After a long time, I met one of my friend(metro friend) in the metro. I have seen him one or two times. There is a story behind our friendship.
One fine day, I was going to office by metro. My commute time approximately 40 minutes(I need to pass 15 stops to reach my office station).
After the 4th stop, the train was ready to leave from the platform. The door was closed automatically & one of the passenger’s finger stuck with the door. The train moved from the station as well. The passenger was not able to get her finger out from the door and cried so much because of pain.
My friend(metro friend) went near to the passenger and tried to help out, but he was failed. Immediately he called the metro police and arranged the ambulance for the passenger.
Next stop, the door was opened and my friend helped the passenger. The passenger’s finger was filled with blood. Meantime, Police & ambulance arrived in that stop and able to give first-aid.
After that incident, I thanked him for that incident/help to that passenger. Also, we introduced each other.
I haven’t seen him many days. Recently I have seen him in the metro but I forget his name. I was just trying to remember his name but I failed. I can able to visualize that incident only.
Likewise, In our real life, We used to forget the name of some heroes but our mind is not programmed to forget their good deeds.
Do the Good Deeds and get the name of good deeds.
Today, Our office applications are down due to annual maintenance. So we didn’t have much work. All of our colleagues are happy that they got a free time in office.
Initially we got a communication that the application would work after 5’o (P.M) clock. But we got an another mail that the maintenance extended to next day (till morning 10’o clock).
We were happy again after seeing that mail.
Likewise, we could face many struggles in our day to day lives. But why don’t we give a break to our lives to explore new places and enjoy( like the annual maintenance for the application in my organization) !
I was waiting at a bus stop to catch the bus. The bus stop made me think about the cost of the ticket.
Most of the people would think that the value of the ticket cost based on the vehicle maintenance, fuel, driver’s salary, etc.,
But my thinking was little different than others that the value of the ticket cost is based on saving your time.
If you spend more cost for your travel, you would be saving more time in your life.
Eg: – If you go by flight(more cost) you would be reached your destination very shortly. Meanwhile, if you go by train(less cost) you would take more time to reach your destination.
(Note: we can’t go by flight to all the places. this is just an example 😛 )
So the cost of the ticket is cost of your precious & valuable time
