4 myths you were taught as a child: Busted!

Hello! Nice day, eh? Splendid indeed yeah.
Remember those sweet nice things you heard as a child that made you believe the world was a wonderful place? Things your parents/grandparents/forefathers/old wise guy of your family talked about? Well, you know what? I'd like to punch whoever it is who came up with all that shit load of crap so hard in the nose that it comes out of his/her butt hole.
1> Hard work pays: Wrong. If you're lucky; born with that lucky line on your palm your palmist talked about, you win. Else you're a goner.
2> Good things come to those who wait: NO. They don't. People who wait just get squished by people who don't. Or they end up being 40 and single. (No dearie, that's not a good thing!)
3> Nice things happen to nice people: Wrong again. Nice people waste time being nice and miss out on all the fun. So stop being such a pansy, take a deep breath and say fuck off to the next guy who jumps the queue.
4> Everything happens for the good: Ha! I don't even know how this one stood the test of times! God save the next person who quotes this to me :|

No offense to anyone, I don't intend to prove anyone wrong. I'm just thinking aloud. And I'm happy blogging about it. Cuz my parents have definitely had enough of all this gyaan from me.

1> Hard work pays: Work smart not hard

2> Good things come to those who wait: no u have to make things happen u cant just wait for em to happen

3> Nice things happen to nice people: if it was so the world wud have been a better place to live inne?

4> Everything happens for the good: i do quite believe in this cos i guess we dont really realise it at that point in time why is it happening....its only later we realise that yes everything that happened was for good....

btw all of these r from my personal experiences

take it easy gal....hugs

Hi Divya,

I guess this is my first comment in your blog.
Its been very good, i should say this. :)
This post of yours, i got mixed reactions.
Hard work definitely pays, but there again it takes the time factor as well. So patience is the key when it comes to hard work.
Now the luck factor, with luck you tend to be impatient.:)
Nice things don't happen to nice people, i accept.. :)
Everything does happen for the good, its just that patience is the key here again. :)

This is just my part of your blog, my opinion.

Keep Blogging Divya!!!

Nice to see you back with a BANG. I agree with you on 2 & 3 absolutely. For 1 I would like to add " Intelligent hard work pays, be a horse and not a mule. Know when to sprint and when to go on easy pace." And for 4 I would say that what is the gain by fretting and pulling your hair if things have gone wrong, so might as well console yourself by thinking that everything is for one's good.

Take care

PS : Hope to have your views in my space.

All the four things you just mentioned have a master switch called Intent. When you do an analysis of any failure you will almost certainly hit upon one thing, real lack of intent or an intent similar to our successive Indian governments in their effort to improve the life of fellow Indians. If your intent is wrong, you can actually smell it. Sometimes, when we embark on something, we can almost feel that something about it is not right. i am talking about that feeling.
