Every day, while I continue to build my business and my goal of a mortgage free life, I seem to come across yet another message from the great man about the power of positive thinking.
Einstein was indeed a physicist, but his influence on the philosophy of science is still in effect today.
His words can be applied to pretty much anything in all walks of life.
Here are some of his wise words and how they've helped me.
"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
This was me before I found a business format that really worked. For some reason, when you're used to doing something and everyone has already stuck a label on you i.e. Ted: Customer Services, Helen: Administrator, it's hard to break free. Thankfully I managed to do this.
This can also be applied when you're doing something wrong in business. If you're using a particular type of advertising for example and not getting anywhere. Face facts and try something new. The best thing is to pick someone else's brains for a new perspective. Preferably someone who has been there and done it themselves.
"Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another."
We can focus on negative or positive energy in life. When a problem comes our way it is how we react that matters. All negatives can be turned into a positive and vice versa. It's about perspective.
If you're faced with a problem or difficult situation, rather than focus on the problem itself and let it ruin your day, focus on a solution. Don't allow the negativity to build through your day. This will then lead to more negativity and negative reactions.
For example. Maybe you've been overlooked for a promotion. You're down at first from the news. But maybe that position wasn't going to be good for you. Perhaps life is trying to tell you that there's something else for you. Something better for your life as a whole. Go with it. You've started the positive energy.
"Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving."
Keep learning and developing as a person. If things go wrong, never let it stop you. If things are going right, don't just settle, keep your mind evolving.
Life is about getting as much as you can out of it and making sure you spend the best moments with the people you love. Make sure work never gets in the way of family life. The two should be in harmony together. If they're not. Why not?
"Try not to become a man of success, but rather to become a man of value."
Be a success by all means. Don't ever let it get in the way of what you are as a person.
Be ethical, helpful, generous and kind. If you build a business and life around these principles then you will be a success at both.
Always stay true to who you are and never let anyone compromise your values.
"Everything is energy and that's all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics."
We're talking about positivity again and your dreams.
What is your dream job? What is your dream life? What do you want most in life?
Dream it, yes. But don't just dream. Go after it. Believe that you'll get it and do everything you can to turn that dream into reality. It's physics.
