I stumbled on this on Facebook and I thought it'd be great sharing it with you guys...

Two important management lessons I learnt from a
500 Naira note.1. It happened some time ago but .
I was in an audience listening to a motivational
speaker. The speaker got out his wallet & pulled
out a 500 Naira note. Holding it up, he asked,
"Who wants this 500 naira note?"Lots of hands
went up. Including mine. A slow chorus began to
build as people beganto shout "Me!" "Me!" I began
to wonder who the lucky one would be who the
speaker would choose. And I also secretly
wondered(and I am sure others did too ) why he
would simply give away 500 naira. Even as the
shouts of "I want it" grew louder, I noticed a young
woman running down the aisle. She ran up onto
the stage, went up to the speaker, and grabbed the
five 500 naira note from his hand. "Well done,
young lady,"said the speaker into the microphone.
The speaker simply say "Most of us just sit and
wait for good things to happen. That's of nouse.
You've got to make things happen. Make a move"
'Simply thinking about doing something is of no
use and not gud enough'. Our lives are like that.
We all see opportunities around us. We all want
the good things. But the problem is we don't take
action. We all want the 500 naira noteson offer.
But we don't make the move. We look at it
longingly. Get up, and do something about it. Don't
worry about whatother people might think.Take
action.2. later, the speaker got another 500 naira
note and held it up for all to see, I thought I knew
what's up. But he just asked a simple question.
"How much is this worth?" "Five Hundred naira!"
the crowd yelled in unison."Right," said the
speaker. He then took the note and crumpled it
into a ball and asked"How much is it worth now?"
"Five Hundred naira!" screamed the audience. He
then threw the note on the ground, stamped all
over it and picked up the note and asked one more
time: "And how much is it worth now?" "Five
Hundred naira!" was the response. "I want you to
remember this," said the speaker. "Just because
someone crumples it, or stamps on it, the value of
the note does not diminish. We should all be like
the 500 naira note. In our lives, there will be times
when we feel crushed, stamped over, beaten. But
never let your self-worth diminish. Just because
someonechooses to crush you, that doesn't
change your worth one bit!Don't allow your self-
worth to diminish because someone says
something nasty ordoes something dirty to
you."Never let your self-worth diminish...
