We give value to what we cherish and appreciate, funny enough we don’t know our own value. I have seen people with potential and deep down they know they are born with greatness but unfortunately you see them living an average and a mediocre life. In most cases they are used people and taken advantage.  My intention is not to look down on you but i want you to see and start appreciating yourself more.

you are settling for less because you don’t know  your value. you are drifting away like a broken stick on a running river. i come across this story which actually woke me up.

A man was on his death bed,he called out his son. He wanted to give him a gift,something that was pass through generation and it was time for his son.”here is a watch that your grandfather gave me when i was your age. It is almost 200 years old but before i give it to you,go to the jewelry store down town , tell them you want to sale it and and see how much they are offering for it”. The son went to the jewelry store and jewelry man look at it for a while and offered him $150.00 just because it looked old. He run back to his father and told him what the jewelry man told him.

The father  said”go to the pawn shop,the son went to the pawn shop and tell him that you want to sell it and ask how much they are offering for the watch”. The son run all they way to pawn shop. The pawn shop owner looked at it for a while and offered $10 just because the watch looked worn out. The son come back and told his father come back to his father.

The father asked the son to go to the museum and to only show them the watch. The son  went to the museum and the curator kept on scrutinizing the watch, looking at the year of manufacturing the plate used, the diamond rocks  in the watch and he offered $500,000.00 for the watch instituting that he can go high if he was ready to negotiate and claiming it as a rare antique collection. He come back and told his father.

The father got the courage and stood up and  looked straight at his son eyes and said “i want you to know that the right place,with the right people they  will always value you and not only value aimlessly but in a right way. Don’t get angry when people don’t value you. Those who value you are the one who appreciate you. Don’t stay in a place where nobody sees your value.

you are valuable more than you can imagine and nothing in this world can ever take it away. The difference is we spend most of our time trying to get justification from people that we are good enough. Let me remind you that you are valuable and it time you know your value.

it always a pleasure, being a part on your change. if you are new here please don’t forget to subscribe, like,share and leave comment.
