Popular but WRONG PHILOSOPHIES you should stop believing.

Image
There are a number of philosophies being shared around the world. These sayings may seem true at the first instance, but the truth is that patronizing those sayings or beliefs will only limit your vision. Some of them are aimed at making you settle for less, a mediocre believing that 'it's not that bad'

I received this piece from a friend and I think is worth sharing on this platform.

WRONG PHILOSOPHIES
