“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open.”
Change is inevitable & growing old is mandatory.
Each phase of life teaches you something. And then, there are things which we learn from experiences. Morals and life lessons which we learned in schools lacks somewhere which are genuinely important to stick with in order to face all kinds of prime situations.
“Dumbing Down Our Kids by Charles J Sykes” is a book every parent and teacher should reach. It tells us about how certain rules if implemented in life would set us up for failure, in real world.
These 11 Rules of Life listed down below are full of wisdom and very much inspiring.
4. If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
5. Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity.
6. If you mess up, it’s not your parents fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
7. Your parents got that boring way by completing your wishes.
8. Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT.
9. Life is not divided into semesters. You don’t get summers off.
10. Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
11. Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one.
These 11 rules on life are something to be relied upon forever & also to be implemented in different phases.
One may not deny the fact that these lessons are NEVER taught in schools which is quite more relevant to know along with their academics. As a teacher, parent, student or as a human being sticking to these 11 rules can make one’s life easier by knowing the difference between the reality & fantasies.
You must share these rules with your loved ones as it has been said :
” Share your knowledge. It is a way to achieve immorality”
It has been found that some websites are talking about the same rules but saying that these were actually a part of Bill Gate’s speech for High school children. The main source shouldn’t be veiled & neglected.
Although, it is not necessary to find the person propagating this rumor as the intentions behind it is not wrong.
