Newton’s 3rd Law of Success: Action and Reaction


Today we finish our series on Isaac Newton’s 3 Laws of Success. In case you missed them, you can check out the other two here:

Newton’s 1st Law of Success: Perpetual Motion, Newton’s 2nd Law of Success: Acceleration

Today we will talk about Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion and how it applies to our journey towards happiness and success.

Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion basically states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Some examples of this would be someone shooting a rifle where the force to propel the bullet forward also produces a force in the opposite direction that kicks back against the shoulder of the shooter. Newtons 3rd 1If two people wearing roller skates put their hands together and push off, they will both shoot off with equal force but in opposite directions.…

Newton’s 2nd Law of Success: Acceleration

Sir Isaac Newton

Last week we started our series, “Newton’s Laws of Success”, with a post about Perpetual Motion which taught us about actively directing our life towards success and happiness instead of allowing a bad day to turn into a bad week.

Today we will look at Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion and see if we can find a way to apply it.

Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion states that the amount of Acceleration (a) on an object is determined by the Mass (m) of the object and the Force (F) placed on it. In other words, if I want to push an object up a hill, the speed in which I can get the to the top depends on how much muscle I put into it and how Newton's 2ndheavy the object is.…

Newton’s 1st Law of Success: Perpetual Motion

Newton's Law of Success

We all know about Sir Isaac Newton.

Gravity, the apple, inventor of calculus.

Some of his most famous work was his Three Laws of Motion.

This post is the first in a series of three, looking at how Isaac Newton’s Laws of Motion are also really Laws of Success. They each apply to us every day and our understanding of them will lead us to greater happiness, fulfillment and achievement.

Let’s get started.

Newton’s First Law of Motion: An object in motion will remain in motion unless acted upon by an external force.
