Ignore the label. Taste the product.

Never look at the label and think you can know how good the product is.

Taste the product for yourself and discover for yourself whether it is good or not.

When you say "President", you immediately assume the person is good, wise, happy, caring, able, etc.

Really? I could give real life examples how that is false.

"President" is a label. Look at what the person says or does and judge for yourself whether he is good or bad.

"Street sweeper" is a label. Look at what the person says or does and judge for yourself whether he is good or bad.

Unfortunately, people jump to conclusions because they only read the labels, ignore the product, do not bother tasting it, and think that the President is at the top and the street sweeper at the bottom.

This perception is finally being challenged.

Many street sweepers are really kind, honest, good people. No?

This is why I love the movie Titanic. Leonardo DiCaprio played a poor but good & wise guy. The rich guys were mostly bad.

But people look at "successful" people and think they must be the better ones.

They could be - but not necessarily. See their conduct. Taste the product.

In the end, Jack Dawson won the heart of the beautiful girl.

While DT is being hated the world over. And for good reasons.
