Value

Last Update: May 27, 2021

A father said to his daughter, "you have graduated with honors, here is a car I bought many years ago. It is pretty old now. But before I give it to you, take it to the used car lot downtown and tell them you want to sell it and see how much they offer you for it."

The daughter went to the used car lot, returned to her father and said, "they offered me $1,000 because they said it looks pretty worn out."

The father said, "now take it to the pawn shop."The daughter went to the pawn shop, returned to her father and said, "the pawn shop offered only $100 because it was an old car."

The father asked his daughter to go to the car club now and show them the car. The daughter took the car to the club, returned and told her father, some people at the club offered her $100,000 for it because, "its an iconic car and sought after by many collecters."

Now 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 that 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.
