5 lies life had taught me.......

Life has taught me so many nice things about work, friendship, love and living but alas there are a few overrated sayings that should be reconsidered and revised.

These are the 5 lies life had taught me:

1. People change

I believe people do not change. An idiot will remain an idiot, sometimes a nice person can become an idiot but an idiot cannot be transformed to a nice person. A person will change under 2 conditions: if he really wants to, or if something makes him change.

2. Team results are always better than individual results

WRONG. This is a lie that has been carried on in the work place for centuries. I believe that individual work is way better than work done by a team. A person has no limits into perfecting his work. The only competition is thyself. All the great people in history are solos, composers, writers, leaders, rebels, artists, etc i could go on and on.

I want to sue those stupid HR brainwashers :P

3. What goes around comes around

Not until you make sure it does! A lot of people get away with things and nothing comes around, I know, trust me! I've been observing very carefully!

4. Faqed il shay2 la yu3teeh (you can't share what you didn't experience)

It's irrelevant. A person can be an orphan and be a great parent. Feelings like most things in life are not inhereted, they're inherent

And my favorite

5. Money cannot buy happiness

What a poor bitter person he who said that. Show me the money and I'll show you how happy i can be :D I think he meant "Money cannot ONLY buy happiness, it can buy all those other things too"!

Basically you're
1. Pessimistic (or Cynical).
2. A horrible team player.
3. A blasphemer (or you don't trust God enough)
4. Well you're right there Can't argue that, but Many Many things in Life are inhereted (like Money).
5. Materialistic and Shallow.

But I'm not gonna judge you for that Larita...
