Who hasn't grown up with clichés?
Clichés have been around forever and everybody uses them from time to time. In fact, we learn a lot of them at English class in the form of proverbs and sayings. And that's a good thing, because a lot of clichés are power-packed with wise advice and rules to live by.
However, trouble brews when they are generalized, taken literally or misinterpreted due to popular notion. These overused statements then become limiting beliefs that negatively influence our thoughts, choices and decisions.
This book examines 20 commonly misunderstood clichés - the ones we all learned in school. Full of cartoons, popular music references and personal experiences of famous and non-famous folks, it will help you truly live life your way.
