As a new year rapidly approaches many of us take a moment to reflect on the past year and how our life is going. Is everything ok? Are we doing enough to help others and to help ourselves for that matter?
It all reminds me of the old story about a bar of iron. By itself it may be worth as much as FIVE DOLLARS.
If you take a bar of iron and turn it into horseshoes, it’s worth increases to $12.
If you take that very same bar of virtually worthless iron and use it to make needles, it’s worth goes up to $3500 Dollars.
Oddly enough, if you take that bar of iron and make it into balance springs for watches it’s value shoots up to $300,000 Dollars.
So the point of the story is, Your Value, Our Value is determined by what we are able to make of ourselves.
Just as an almost worthless Bar of Iron that may cost as little as $5 can somehow or another turn itself into an item worth a Quarter of a Million Dollars.
We Too can make something extremely valuable of our lives as well.
So use every day to mold that Bar of Iron we call our life into something that will make it and the lives of those around you the very best that it can be.
Just Another Point of View.
Happy New Year, best of wishes and Blessing.
