Nasdaq, Wallstreet & the unknown Cheeseburger

Personality is the only double-priced product in the market.
A tag of your own estimation
& a tag of others judgement.

Well you can always choose to sell yourself
but the reason I never enter the market is due
to the threat of being sold unwillingly & undervalued.

We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.
Therein lies the paradox.

But isn't it so that we generally tend to base our view of ourselves on other people's judgement?

I always preferred my hamburgers without cheese. Of course, since I stopped eating "mad cows" a few years ago, I guess it doesn't matter any more. ;)

Do you worry a lot about the judgements of other people? When I was growing up, I considered myself to be a non-conformist. I didn't seek to be popular and I didn't hang out with the "right" people. I wasn't really a social outcast, rather I had outcast myself. Then, late in my High School experience, I took a trip with some of those more popular students. To my surprise, I discovered that many of them were not so bad afterall. I learned that I had judged them before I had even gotten to know them. It is a lesson that I have tried to remember ever since.

I think it is human nature to worry about what others think.But I think sometimes its this that gives us the drive to do better.

What Chitty says is very true, but to even the score, I recommend keeping a marker in your pocket and changing the price value on your tag anytime someone undervalues you, ;)

I remember of a person once mentioning that his father smashed him. A wise asked him, "how?"
he said, " he called me words"
the wise said," how can those words smuash you?"

I, for one, am I known cheeseburger, but I admit the world of cheeseburgers (both metaphoric and literal) can be bamboozling.
