When life gives you aaloo.. make french fries!


I was conducting a session on POSITIVE ATTITUDE at a Consultancy Firm's Training Centre.

I held a 1000 Rupee Note in my hand. In the room of 20, I asked. "Who would like this Rs. 1000/- bill?"
Hands started going up. I said, "I am going to give this Rs. 1000/- to one of the participants - but first, let me do this."

Then I crumpled the 1000-rupees note and asked. "Who still wants it?" Still the hands were up in the air.
Well," I replied, "what if I do this?" I dropped it on the carpet and started to grind it into the floor with my shoe. (Though I felt pretty bad after doing that but that was important for delivering the message) I picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. "Now, who still wants it?"

Still the hands went into the air.

I smiled :)

My message was delivered effectively.

I said, "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 Rs. 1000/-."

It happens so many time is your life that you are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions you make and obstacles & hurdles that come our way. At that moment we feel we are worthless; but no matter what happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. God has given strengths to all of us. It's all about how much you unleash it to the fullest! And ofcourse if can't avoid what's happening... atleast learn to enjoy it.

You are special and unique- don't ever forget that!
