10 Amazing Lessons from Albert Einstein:

1 - Follow Your Curiosity

"I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious."
...
What piques your curiosity? I am curious as to what causes one person to succeed while another person fails; this is why I've spent years studying success. What are you most curious about? The pursuit of your curiosity is the secret to your success.

2 - Perseverance is Priceless

"It's not that I'm so smart; it's just that I stay with problems longer."

Through perseverance the turtle reached the ark. Are you willing to persevere until you get to your intended destination? They say the entire value of the postage stamp consist in its ability to stick to something until it gets there. Be like the postage stamp; finish the race that you've started!

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."

My father always says you cannot ride two horses at the same time. I like to say, you can do anything, but not everything. 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.

4 - The Imagination is Powerful

"Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions. Imagination is more important than knowledge."

Are you using your imagination daily? Einstein said the imagination is more important than knowledge! Your imagination pre-plays your future. Einstein went on to say, "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. I've said this before, and I'll say it again, if you want to succeed, triple the amount of mistakes that you make.

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."

You cannot "presently" change yesterday or tomorrow, so it's of supreme importance that you dedicate all of your efforts to "right now." It's the only time that matters, it's the only time there is.

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.

Labor to be valuable and success will chase you down.

8 - Don't Expect Different Results

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

You can't keep doing the same thing everyday and expect different results. In other words, you can't keep doing the same workout routine and expect to look differently. In order for your life to change, you must change, to the degree that you change your actions and your thinking is to the degree that your life will change.

9 - Knowledge Comes From Experience

"Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience."

Knowledge comes from experience. You can discuss a task, but discussion will only give you a philosophical understanding of it; you must experience the task first hand to "know it." What's the lesson? Get experience! Don't spend your time hiding behind speculative information, go out there and do it, and you will have gained priceless 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."

    Einstein also said of Mozart that he didn't compose music but that it came out already composed!

    Wouldn't it be wonderful to be endowed with such genius?

    Great list, but this one in particular can be confusing for some. When I first started getting into internet business and business and in general, I was bombarded with advice like "offer value" and "be valuable." This doesn't mean much for someone without the experience to back it up.

    A better way of saying it would be, "make an effort to understand what constitutes value to other people then try to offer that in a way that you enjoy." Or perhaps, make an effort to emotional connect or psychologically relate to your customers.

      Good point HSS, and I like your take on it. But then again I am sure Einstein didn't have IM in mind when he said this.
