Misconceptions of Life

    There are literally tons of misconceptions of life. I have really thought long and hard about certain things. I have come to the realization that many things that I am told are inaccurate or just plain not true.

    For instance I have much more complicated ones, but I can start with an easy one: I am right handed.

    I was told that I am a righty, and any time I ever thought about going to do anything with my left hand, it was either too hard, or a coach told me to stop messing around. I never realized my left hand sucked, only because I never used it.

    It is a work in progress, but my left hand is really becoming a great asset. I can do many more things with my left hand. Something I wish I would have done when I was younger.

    What is 1 misconception that you have come to find out was inaccurate?

      If your short your fat if your tall your skinny. There are tall heavy  people and thin short people.

    Lots and lots of them, and still counting...

    How about "the government cares about you", for a starter smile

    How about shaving makes your hair grow in thicker!?

    Actually this one corresponds to my observations. In fact when I stopped shaving every day my hair seemed to become thinner, at least they are softer. And grow much slower smile

    About the brain

    You only use X percent of your brain.

    The left hemisphere is for logic and reasoning, the right is for art, creativity, intuition.

    This stuff comes from a time without MRI and PET scan.

      Yeah, we really know nothing about the brain at this point.

      You are capable of doing ANYTHING. People are good at things because they have spent countless hours on it.

      You can't ice skate or swim, because you haven't tried and haven't practiced!
