Somebody once gave me two pairs of shoes. One pair was a gorgeous Under Armour basketball shoe. I was so happy to receive it. The other pair was a brand that I did not recognize. It was a nice-looking brown leather sneaker but since I was not familiar with the brand, I wasn’t as pleased as I was with the other pair.
One day, somebody noticed the new brown leather sneakers I was wearing. He said, “Wow, that’s a Cole Haan! That’s expensive. Nice shoe brother!” I didn’t know that it was a brand of high value. From then on, I treated that shoe differently. I started to wear it with more delight and greater confidence.
Knowing the value of something changes the way we treat that very thing.
Knowing your true value changes the way you live.
Do you really know your true value?
