A VALUABLE LESSON

There comes a point in your life when you realize what really matters, what never did, and what always will...



Paraphrasing Punit Ghadge

What is value?
Is value a quality intrinsic to the object, action or person, or is it a quality dictated by outside factors?
Is it your personal worth determine by who you are or determined by who people think you are?



What is the value of a bottle of water?
How much would  pay for a bottle of water; one dollar, ten dollars, a hundred dollars?
Would you pay a thousand or a million dollars for a bottle of water?
What is the value of a bottle of water?
Is it an intrinsic quality to the bottle of water or is it dictated from outside?
If you were lost in a desert and die of thirst would you pay a million dollars for a bottle of water?
When you buy something you need do you get poorer or richer?
When you don’t buy something you need do you get richer or poorer?
 
If you had ten million dollars in the bank would you consider yourself rich? (considering ten million being enough to be considered rich)
If a person has ten million dollars in the bank but he would get stranded on a deserted island with no way to access his money, would you consider him still being rich?
If you had ten million dollars buried in the back yard but didn’t know about it would you be a rich man or not? 
Is  money that you have ore many that you spend that make you rich?
 
If a person lives a thrifty, cheap life, and saves every penny to become a millionaire would he be a rich man?
If a person with live a rich, opulent life on borrowed million dollars would he be a rich or poor person?
If the thrifty man would die with millions of dollars in his bank and the other would die with millions of dollars in debt would you still consider them as rich and poor?
Are money you will never spend still yours?
Would you rather die rich or poor?

What is value?
What is your value?
Is value a quality intrinsic to the object, action or person, or is it a quality dictated by outside factors?
Is it your personal worth determine by who you are ore determined by who people think you are?

Have you find any value in this blog post?
Would you tell me why, or why not?
