7 Lessons Learned From Einstein

Here is the list of things you should do to live an amazing life according to Albert Einstein with my two cents. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

1. FOLLOW YOUR CURIOSITY
“I HAVE NO SPECIAL TALENT. I AM ONLY PASSIONATELY CURIOUS.”
What makes you curious? Being curious is a sign you are onto something of interest. It is a clue that when combined with perseverance and strategy, leads to a world of possibilities.

2. PERSEVERANCE IS PRICELESS
“IT’S NOT THAT I’M SO SMART; IT’S JUST THAT I STAY WITH PROBLEMS LONGER.”
Are you willing to persevere until you get to your intended destination? Some goals are so big and so important that they are worth pursuing your whole life; if they are not then why even waste your time pursuing them at all? The struggle of the pursuit builds character so enjoy the journey.

3. FOCUS ON THE PRESENT
“ANY MAN WHO CAN DRIVE SAFELY WHILE KISSING A PRETTY GIRL IS SIMPLY NOT GIVING THE KISS THE ATTENTION IT DESERVES.”
This is funny LOL but the moral of the quote is that we need to be fully present in all we do. Give what you are doing your entire focus because focused energy is true power. Where your focus goes your energy flows and where energy flows… well realities are created.

4. THE IMAGINATION IS POWERFUL
“IMAGINATION IS EVERYTHING. IT IS THE PREVIEW OF LIFE’S COMING ATTRACTIONS. IMAGINATION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN KNOWLEDGE.”  and “THE TRUE SIGN OF INTELLIGENCE IS NOT KNOWLEDGE, BUT IMAGINATION.” Our imaginations are powerful gifts. It reveals a preview of what is possible what could be. Exercise your imagination muscles often by imagining how much more amazing your life could be and then get to it!

5. MAKE MISTAKES
“A PERSON WHO NEVER MADE A MISTAKE NEVER TRIED ANYTHING NEW.” Never be afraid of making a mistake in the pursuit of achieving your goals. Do the best you can NOW with what you have and who you are and you will learn as you go. Winston Churchill also once said that success was going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm. So, GO FOR IT!

6. LIVE IN THE MOMENT
“I NEVER THINK OF THE FUTURE – IT COMES SOON ENOUGH.”
The only way to address the future is to be fully present making the best of your present since the present is the only moment that exists. Experience life to the fullest now but do it in pursuit of a purpose-driven life.

7. CREATE VALUE
“STRIVE NOT TO BE A SUCCESS, BUT RATHER TO BE OF VALUE.”
Don’t waste your time trying to be successful just to stroke the ego and be successful. Instead seek to fulfill a purpose where you add so much value to others that you can’t help but be super successful in the process, this way the success will be fullfilling.DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME TRYING TO BE SUCCESSFUL, SPEND YOUR TIME CREATING VALUE. IF YOU’RE VALUABLE, THEN YOU WILL ATTRACT SUCCESS. DISCOVER THE TALENTS AND GIFTS THAT YOU POSSESS, LEARN HOW TO OFFER THOSE TALENTS AND GIFTS IN A WAY THAT MOST BENEFITS OTHERS.
