Paradigm shift

Our upbringing in this world has been shaped by many conventions, many of them dictated by a lot of paradigms. The problem with these paradigms is that they are suitable only for the contemporary times in which they were told. They are never updated. How about updating some of them? Yes, it is time we say the unsaid, add disclaimers wherever necessary, clear some confusions and change the unchanged. Here is a sincere attempt to modernise some of the well known paradigms. You have all rights to use them at will. Oh yeah, comments in line  :)
  • Failure is the stepping stone of success, only if you step against it! you gotta work baby!
  • Don't count your chickens until they survive for at least a week! competitive environment boss  :|
  • Don't count your chickens until you are done with your chicken soup! you naughty boy ;)
  • A bird in the hand is better than two in the bush, only if it won't poop on you! gotcha...
  • The way you look at a glass half full or half empty depends on whether you want it to be completely empty or completely full! this did not occur to me when I was drunk :P
  • Silence is the only thing that can be misquoted in any number of ways! be careful!
  • Men are from Mars, women are from Venus, Apes are from this place, Earth! now tell me, where are you from? ;)
  • Don't go where there is a path. Instead go where there is no path and leave a trail. only then someone will be able to find you and bring you back!
  • The early bird gets the worm, the last bird gets the sleep. Make your pick.
  • Nobody travels on the road to success without a puncture or two. remember, no stepney allowed!  :(
  • Hope is a good thing and no good thing ever dies. we hope so! :)
I think now these are contemporary. Nothing is left unsaid and hopefully nobody can sue us for not providing the disclaimer. I will again come out with a different set of paradigm shift once I figure out enough paradigms that can be shifted.

Cheers!

P.S: If you want to shift any paradigm, you can do so in the comments section!  :)
