Tailing Tales

Tales, tales, tales.  Educating tales, inspiring tales, cool tales, scary tales, tales are everywhere. All of us MUST have heard some or the other tale in our life, whether it is a far-fetched one or not.

What do these tales teach us? Yes, they provide us pastime, but what else? Contrary to what others say (‘tales won’t help you succeed, man’), tales teach us a lot of things.

Phoenix

Phoenix

Take, for example, the tale of a phoenix. A mythical gold-and-scarlet bird, whose tears have the power to heal the most grievous of wounds and make incredibly faithful pets.

But the most prominent thing about the phoenix is that after it dies (in fire), it rises from its ashes and lives for another five hundred years.

What do we learn from this? Don’t be afraid to cry, tears heal you. Be faithful to those who care for you. And most importantly, don’t give up hope, even if you fail, you will always rise from the ashes.

The seemingly simple tale of the phoenix teaches us so much. Share this post with everybody who thinks reading tales are a waste of time. Go on, read some more!
