“It’s not fair”

The issue with this statement is with our definition of "fair." We do not know how much one person suffers and whether it's more or less than we do. We also don't know whether something we find terrible today isn't life's greatest gift ten years from now.

There are things in life we can control and things we can't. Put your time and energy towards those things you can control.

Believing “More is better”

"More is better" is a trap we fall into even though most people understand that materialism and conspicuous consumption are really empty pursuits. We want to travel more, see more, do more, more friends, more options, more, more, more.

More options tend to make us more unhappy instead of h...

Thinking “I know exactly what to do”

The reasoning behind this belief is that if you believe you know what you're doing, you'll have more confidence, and you'll do it better.

This may sound nice at first glance, but confidence can also make us justify our own position. We'll be less open to constructive feedback and likely ig...

Common belief: “If it doesn’t help me, then forget it”

Self-improvement has one dangerous drawback: the sense that it's accomplishing something can become a low-level addition. In the process, it will gut your emotional life.

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!
