A Businessman, #1,000 Note And Fuel To Your Dying Spirit

16

A prominent businessman was at a seminar, addressing the attendees. He dipped his hand inside his breast pocket and brought out a #1000 note, he asked the audience how much it was? #1000, they replied! He squeezed the money then asked them how much it was. #1000, they chorused. Then he dropped the squeezed note and stepped on it. He matched it then picked it up and ask them the same question once more. #1000, they replied faintly. Then he straightened the money and said; "The money, despite being harassed retains its value! And so do you, your brand or market. "The fact that someone rejects what you do or sell doesn't reduce its value. The level of ridicule someone subjects you to does not mirror your value. Its just a matter of their interest. You have submitted numerous applications, sent countless emails, tried to apply for several jobs and yet, you are rejected? You are still who you are, regardless! You have recorded failures. Yes. But guess what? As long as you keep trying, the failures don't matter!
