Two important management lessons i learnt
from
a 500 Naira note.
1. It happened some time ago.
I was in an audience listening to a
motivational
speaker.

The speaker got out his wallet & pulled out a
500 Naira note. Holding it up, he asked, “Who
wants this 500 naira 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 500 naira. 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 500 naira note from his hand.
“Well done, young lady,” said the speaker into
the microphone. The
speaker simply say “Most of us just sit and
wait
for good things to happen. That’s of no use.
You’ve got to make things happen. Make a
move”
‘Simply thinking about doing something is of
no
use and not good enough’. 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 500 naira notes on offer. But
we don’t make the move. We look at it
longingly. Get up, and do something about it.
Don’t worry about what other people might
think.
TAKE ACTION!
2. Later, the speaker got another 500 naira
note
and held it up for all to see, I thought I knew
what’s up. But he just
asked a simple question. “How much is this
worth?” “Five Hundred naira!” 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 naira!” 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 naira!” 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 500 naira 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 does
something dirty to you.”
Never let your self-worth diminish.
Its the month of September and I pray for
SPEED – to overtake and recover all lost
grounds in your life.
