People often deceive themselves by familiar oral teachings or myths, to make them feel safer. Believing in some of the common legends makes life more relaxed and enjoyable, but languishes us in a transmitted and literal sense (so children talk about fairytales before bedtime). Here are 6 oral narratives that people believe so much that it is almost impossible to resolve them. They cause us harm and prevent us from exploiting their potentials.
Legend number 1 -THERE IS ALWAYS TIME
In reality we have less time than we think. Now we have less time than an hour ago. Always plan carefully and do not delay the action too long.
Legend number 2 – WE CAN BE RELY ON OTHERS
In reality, whatever you are doing- you are on your own. Of course, we all have people who care about us, they advise us, but after all, we have to do everything ourselves. Others help us with our care and love, but we do not have to expect someone else to do anything for us.
Legend number 3- IMPORTANT STE SAMI SEBI
In reality, go out in the night and look into the sky. It’s been for millions of years, and you only have a few. For a hundred years the sky will still be there, and our name probably will not be remembered by anyone. Why and what? To be important, you have to do a lot of effort, it does not come by yourself.
Legend number 4 – OTHERS SHOULD BE PUT IN FRONT OF OURSELF
In reality, many people fall into the traps of “goodness”. They tend to be good and tame to others. Do not be fooled- worry more about yourself than about any other.
Legend number 5- YOU SHOULD AVOID CONFLICTS
In reality, conflicts are present all the way around, and the truth is that they can not be avoided. Rather than avoiding them, learn to cope with civilization. People who are taking care of themselves will not be punished, and those who avoid or ignore problems will only create more problems around themselves.
Legend number 6 – THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SUCCESS AND FAILURE IS HAPPINESS
In reality, the lazy people believe in this saying. Success, whatever it is, means perseverance, effort, diligence, devoted work, planning, commitment, and much more. Of course there are things beyond our control, but the lives of successful people are full of unpredictable environments and those they could not influence, but in reality, they knew how to carry and defend themselves.
Very practical advice and I totally agree with your thoughts!

Thanks a lot for your nice comments. Yes, we all learn on a daily basis. I wish you the best.
My warm regards,
Very interesting, i wonder about the last one, can one be successful, in work, skills etc, working hard to be the best and fail at living the best life? I do understand and agree with what you mean about laziness not leading to success. (Or happiness either)

Yes, we need to find some balance in our life. If there is no balance in all fields or life, we will probably fail in some. But, sometimes it gets hard for us to learn it all during our life’s time. Let us all focus what we know the best. I wish you happiness and many successes in all fields.
My best regards,
