I read this amazing little story on Instagram today that I thought I would share.
A father before he died said to his son: “This is a watch your grandfather gave me, and it’s more than 200 years old. But before I give it to you, go to the with shop on the first street and tell him I want to sell it, and see how much he offers you.” He went, and then came back to his father, and said: “The watchmaker offered $5 because it’s old.” He said to him:”Go to the coffee shop.”
He went, and then came back, and said: “He offered 5, father.” “Go to the museum and show them that watch.” He went, and then came back, and said to his father: ” They offered me $1 million for this piece.” The father said: “I wanted to let you know that the right place values you in the right way. Don’t find yourself in the wrong place and get angry if you’re not valued. Those that know your value are those who appreciate you, don’t stay in a place where nobody sees your value”. – Know your worth.
