Where there’s a will, there’s a way

Blood is thicker than water

Time heals all wounds

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

This is my review. Sorry for the delay

The moment I read the title of the book- even before I read the blurb- I wanted to read it. I just loved thought of breaking out of the conditioning that clichéd thoughts bind us in.

I love the quick, snappy format of the book. It sheds new light on familiar thought without being in the least preachy. The content is pointed like a lance and cuts as one. In deft strokes it slashes through beliefs that may be comfortable and familiar, but which also bind and restrict. Sharing the experiences of others, in their own words, gives immense weight to the author’s observations. I particularly liked the fact that she has included the person’s name and a URL to their professional presence on the web.What an amazing concept! To let the words of another sell your thought to your audience!

This book as been a huge learning for me. I am delighted I read it!

Thank you Mahevash Shaikh. I look forward to reading more of your work! All the best!
