Do You Feel Valued?
Do you ever find yourself in situations where you feel you are not valued? This can happen anywhere ... in a work environment, amongst friends, in a class, on a team, etc.
Our immediate response is to feel frustrated or angry. But read this excerpt that I came across this week to understand why you should move on from places your value is not appreciated ....
A father said to his daughter, "You just graduated! This is a car I bought a while ago... It is a few years old. But before I give it to you, take it to a car dealer in the city and offer to sell it , see how much they offer.” The girl came back to her father and said: "They offered 1000 euros because it looks very old." The father said: "Hold it and take it to the second-hand car dealer." The girl returns to her father and says: "The pawn shop offered 100 euros because it is a very old car and lots of investments are needed to drive it again." The father asked his daughter to join a passionate car club with experts and show them the car. The girl drove the car to the passionate car club, turned and said to her father: “Some people in the club offered me 100,000 euros because it is a rare car that is in good condition, with great capabilities and super difficult to find.” Then the father said, "I wanted to let you know that you are not worth anything if you are not in the right place." If you are not appreciated, do not be angry. It means you are in the wrong place. Don't stay in a place where no one sees your value."
