Do You Know Your Value?

I love the lesson this little story teaches

A father said to his daughter “You graduated with honors, here is a car I acquired many years ago. It is several years old. But before I give it to you, take it to the used car lot downtown and tell them I want to sell it and see how much they offer you. The daughter went to the used car lot, returned to her father and said, “They offered me $1,000 because it looks very worn out.” The father said, ”Take him to the pawnshop.” The daughter went to the pawnshop, returned to her father and said, ”The pawn shop offered $100 because it was a very old car.” The father asked his daughter to go to a car club and show them the car. The daughter took the car to the club, returned and told her father,” Some people in the club offered $100,000 for it since it’s a Nissan Skyline R34, an iconic car and sought out after by many.” The father said to his daughter, ”The right place values you the right way,” If you are not valued, do not be angry, it means you are in the wrong place. Those who know your value are those who appreciate you. Never stay in a place where no one sees your value.

  1. This is like trying to return one banana out of a bunch you bought.

    This issue isn’t really about the banana, you, or the banana seller. It is about a tranaction.

    And as with all transactions, there are many layers to peel.

  4. Tomorrow is our 29th wedding anniversary. We valued one another enough to make plans to marry and have gone through all the trials and tribulations that, with two people coming together with different backgrounds as I was the city girl and he was the country boy. We have lived in the city and now live in a small city that is surrounded by rural area. We have stayed true to our vows and supported one another over the years. We have not taking each other for granted and or a peaceful loving couple who enjoy life and all that has to offer and manifest our caring for other people through lifelong friendships.
