Something As Simple As Ice Cream Unites People
At the core of Leo Schartzman’s America’s Heart & Soul is the message that the American Dream is possible to achieve. No matter what adversity you may be facing, if you work hard, have kindness and compassion, you can find self-fulfillment, that will benefit the people around you, too. By working hard for your dreams, you can accomplish them and achieve happiness, which will be contagious to those around you. If you have ever been standing in line outside an ice cream shop, you know that ice cream unites people!
We find inspiration from the members of the documentary who embody joy and want others to experience it too. Consider Ben Cohen, a co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s, for example. We see that if we have the right motivation when approaching success, we can obtain it. He demonstrates that personal, financial success is great, but sharing it with others makes it better.
Who is Ben Cohen?
Ben Cohen started his professional journey much as anyone else would. He started as an ice cream man, then went to college, then opted out of that to pursue pottery. He continued the difficult search of self-discovery for years after this, trying jobs across the board.
Through this journey, Ben never let go of his passion for ice cream. It was while working as a private school teacher that Ben took the time to explore ice cream-making. He gave up his free time in hopes to someday develop the best tasting ice cream imaginable.
In his work now, he does not take anything for granted. When creating new flavors, Ben puts the same intensive care into the process as when he first began. He demonstrates that achieving the American Dream is a never ending process. It’s those who stay committed to their work and offer the best quality of products and services to their community and customers that will prosper. After all that hard work, it was all worth it because ice cream unites people!
