This story is somehow beautifully relate to our basic need of to be inspired, to be motivated and most specifically to be know what our real value is.
“Know your worth”
A father, before he died, said to his son: “This is the watch your grandfather gave me and this is more than 200 years old. Before I give it to you, go to the watch shop on First street, and tell him I want to sell it, and ask how much they’d offer”.
The son went and after several minutes, he came back to his father and said, “The watchmaker offered to pay Rs 10/- because it’s old and has a lot of scratches.” He then asked him to go to the coffee shop.
The son went and after an hour or so, he came back and said: “The coffee shop owner offered Rs 10/-, father.”
“Go to the museum and show them that watch”. He went ahead and then came back happily. “They offered me one lac for this piece.”
The father said: “I wanted to let you know that the right place values you in the right way. Don’t put yourself in the wrong place and get angry if you get treated like trash. Those who know your value are the ones who appreciate you, don’t ever stay in a place that doesn’t suit you.”
Know your worth, chase what you want to be, what is your basic instinct.
Be Motivated and love yourself.
