The Backwards Law

The Backwards Law

wanting positive experience is a negative experience, accepting the negative experience is a positive experience.

If pursuing the positive is a negative, then pursuing the negative generates positive. For instance,

  • The pain you pursue in the gym results in better all-around health and energy.
  • The failure in buisness is what leads to a better understanding of what's necessary to be successful.

Being open with your insecurities paradoxically makes you more confident and charismatic around others. Suffering through your fears and anxieties is what allows you to build courage and perseverance.

We shouldn't seek to find the ultimate "right" answer for ourselves, but rather, we should seek to chip away all the ways that we're wrong today so that we can be a little less wrong tomorrow.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
