Sutherland truly believes in the power of perspective and its ability to entirely alter the way an individual can perceive his or her own happiness. He reminds the audience that "things are not what they are; they are what [they] think they are" and that "things are what [they] compare them to." He goes onto to discuss the idea that psychological value is often the best kind.

This idea not only carries significant importance in the world of marketing and advertising, but also in one's personal life. His speech reminds the audience, that happiness is dependent on nothing other than perspective.
