Take Action

Lessons from a 500 rupee note

Two important lessons from a Rs. 500 note: to take action.

It happened few years ago but can recall that evening like it happened just last week.. I was in an audience listening to a motivational guru. The speaker whipped out his wallet and pulled out a five hundred-rupee note.

Holding it up, he asked, “Who wants this five hundred rupee note?” Lots of hands went up. Including mine.

A slow chorus began to build as people began to 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 five hundred rupees.

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 hundred-rupee note from his hand.

“Well done, young lady! you take action!,” said the speaker into the microphone.
“Most of us just wait for good things to happen. That’s of no use. You’ve got to make things happen.”

The speaker’s words have stayed with me ever since. Simply thinking about doing something is of no use.
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 five hundred rupee notes on offer. But we don’t take action towards it.

Get up, and do something about it. Don’t worry about what other people might think and just take action!

Several years later, it was another day, another time. And another motivational guru. As I watched him pull out a five hundred rupee note and hold it up for all to see, I thought I knew what he was going to do next. But he just asked a simple question..

“How much is this worth?”

“Five Hundred rupees!” 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 rupees!” 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 rupees!” 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 five hundred rupee note.
In our lives, there will be times when we feel crushed, stamped over, beaten. But never let your self-worth diminish.

Just because someone chooses to crush you – that doesn’t change your worth one bit.
Don’t allow your self-worth to diminish because someone says something nasty or bad to you.

Your Income will NEVER Exceed your Self-Image.

Which is why you see lottery winners come back to their original lifestyle in no time.  If you steal, or inherit large sum of money it won’t be with you for long because you have a low self-image.

Self-Image is how you see your worth. How you think other’s think of you.
