10 Life Lessons from Albert Einstein

This list was compiled by blogger Jay White but I added my 2 cents. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Here is the list of 10 things you should do to live an amazing life:

1. Follow Your Curiosity

“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.”

What piques your curiosity? The pursuit of your curiosity is the secret to your success. Live curious.

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? Do not be so quick to give up on the important things in your life. The struggle builds character.

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.”

Learn to be present where you are; give your all to whatever you’re currently doing.  Focused energy is power, and it’s the difference between success and failure. What is it that you can do and be doing right now to move one step closer to your dreams?

4. The Imagination is Powerful

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions. Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but imagination.” Are you exercising your “imagination muscles” daily, don’t let something as powerful as your imagination lie dormant.

5. Make Mistakes

“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”

Never be afraid of making a mistake. A mistake is not a failure. Mistakes can make you better, smarter and faster, if you utilize them properly. Discover the power of making mistakes. Winston Churchill said, “Success is going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” So, go ahead!

6. Live in the Moment

“I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.”

The only way to properly address your future is to be as present as possible “in the present.” I love looking into the future but I’ve noticed that too much of that takes away from the present ability I have to experience life to the fullest.

7. Create Value

“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”

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.

8. Don’t Expect Different Results

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

In order for your life to change, you must change.

9. Knowledge Comes From Experience

“Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience.”

What’s the lesson? Get experience! Go out there and do it. Just do not under estimate the power of reading, learning from other’s experiences and your thirst for knowledge.

10. Learn the Rules and Then Play Better

“You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.”
