Take an iron bar worth about £5.00 in value. Make horseshoes out of that same iron bar and they’ll be worth about £50.00. If you remove the impurities from the iron, refine it into steel and make needles, they’ll be worth £2000. And if you take the same metal and make balanced springs for precision watches they’ll be worth £250,000. – We are like that iron bar; we all start from the same humble beginnings. However, our own value or self-worth is not and should not be left for others to manufacture. We must make that decision ourselves.
