"You may be smart, but there are people smarter than you in this world." - The Four Students story

Otherwise known as The Four Friends, this is one of the pretty well-known short stories with an important moral. It's about four friends who hated studying, and one day decided to delay their essay, which they told the teacher they had to push a car for a distance due to a burst of a wheel on their way back from a wedding. On the day of their exam, the teacher put them in separate classrooms, and there were only two questions on the test:
"1. Your name:
Which tire of the car burst: a) Front left b) Front right c) Rear left d) Rear right"
This was an extremely witty action by the teacher, and as stated on Mom Junction (2017), the moral of the story is what's said above - there will be people better than you.

Reviewing what may or may not be the morals which you've learnt as a kid is similar to a reset in the mindset - it's reminding yourself the basics, and that prevents from overthinking. Stories such as Boy Who Cried Wolf, The Midas Touch, or The Golden Egg bring back those simple lessons, not that the lessons we learn ourselves aren't important (that's what makes us unique!), as well as those childhood stories. Flashbacks!

We've all had our unique childhoods, and as we grow, we become more and more unique by the second! That includes strengths and weaknesses... how do you use them, whether that's for yourself or to your own advantage? I'll learn too.
