1. The right and the wrong.
Both of these are just a result of your over thinking and sadly, we often
give into the pressure of doing the correct thing whereas there is nothing
that can be defined as entirely right or entirely wrong. Whatever floats your
boat is just fine.
2. Work hard now and you can have fun later
I think this is the part that plays with our head the most. We are bent
upon making a career, meeting deadlines, replying to work emails, thinking about
further studies, financial stability and marriage. In the midst of all this, we
forget to chill and have fun. We forget that yes now is the time to get a
control on life, but now is also the time to fulfil everything in your bucket
3. Working hard is the key to life
There is no doubt about the fact that there is no substitute to working
hard. But, there is a difference between working hard and working smart. Both
are equally important.
First of all, how do we measure fairness and who does it? And if life was
really fair, then it would be highly predictable and utterly boring leaving us
with no lessons learnt.
We all have some point in our lives have heard our best friends say this to

unconditional support. But, at the end of the day, independence and self
sufficiency are what you need the most. And believe it or not, most of us are
obsessed with the belief that love can heal our brokenness. We definitely need
to let go of that notion.
8. Ambition is climbing up the ladder of success
People generally associate success with pay cheques, promotion on the work
front or fame. Is that correct? Maybe, maybe not. Ambition is something you
believe in, something that drives you. It could be money, climbing a mountain,
travelling to another country or any other thing. If it has your heart then it
We start participating in this rat race the moment we enter school. Grades,
extra-curricular activities, personal development and the list is endless and
the constant need to aim for perfection. It takes a toll on you sometimes. Yes,
life is a battle, but with your own self. And others are fighting their own
We go around screaming this phrase and seem to get it right. Well, no we
dont. We actually dont live once, we live every day. We get a chance to start
over every damn day. In short, you live multiple times, but you die only
