BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, February 17th, 2022 by Arnold Patent in YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL

“Society places different values on talents. A person who is talented in business or in the
professions is accorded a higher status than one whose talent is in sewing, cooking, repairing appliances, or hanging wallpaper. Yet, each talent is truly equal in value to every other talent.

It is important that we support ourselves and others in this thought. As our perception of the value of our talent improves, so will the actual value, to us and to others. The person who sews, knits or cooks with great skill, is entitled to the same acknowledgment as the successful president of a major corporation. Each is entitled to be treated as a superstar. However, others will always treat us in the ways we wish to be treated. Until we view what we do as important and valuable, no one else will.”

Arnold Patent, in “You Can Have It All”
