The wisdom of Albert Einstein is well documented, but what is the meaning behind his quotes? Here’s our take:
“Imagination is more important than knowledge.” – Albert Einstein
“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.” – Albert Einstein
“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” – Albert Einstein
There is perhaps no stronger trait one could have, than that of a strong imagination.
Imagination is EVERYTHING… because without it we can not create ANY-THING NEW.
Imagination is the preview of life’s coming attractions, because without it we are guaranteed to repeat the same patterns, make the same mistakes and live the same life over and over again.
WITH IT, there are NO LIMITS… there’s no limit to what we could attempt, no limit to how high we could soar, how big we could dream…
Sure, our dreams might end in the dust… but what if they don’t? Would you rather LIVE having tried to reach the life you WANT… or die with regret?
We need to let go of our need to fit in… fit in to this small box society placed us in… and we must imagine the life we really want… then, when we are certain what that life is, we have to go for it…
We only get one shot at this miracle of human life… live it fully and exactly how you want!
Sure, we all have dreams… the problem is MOST PEOPLE stuff their dreams in the closet when things get hard… when life presents challenges most people turn to what they know… they turn to what is EASY… but the easy road… and the KNOWN will never lead you to your dreams.
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” – Albert Einstein
“He who can no longer pause to wonder… and stand rapt in awe… is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.” – Albert Einstein
It really is that simple. It really is a choice. No matter the circumstances of our life we can choose to see everything around us as a miracle.
The very fact that we are here, in a human body, is said to be a ONE in FOUR HUNDRED TRILLION chance. Very few of us believe we are a walking miracle…
Sadly so many people are walking around, living their life in their head, pessimistic of the future and bitter from the past, so much so, that they are missing the miracles in the present.
Open your eyes and open your heart to the magic all around you. The miracle of human and animal life. The miracles of nature. The miracle of YOU and what you’re really capable of when you let go of caring what other people think of you…
Choose, from this moment on in your life… to SEEK and find the miracles around you.
“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.” – Albert Einstein
They say the only things guaranteed in life are death and taxes… you can add to that list – the impossibility to please everyone.
The simple fact is… when you want to change… as in, when you want to BETTER YOUR LIFE… there will be opposition, and unfortunately, that opposition is most likely to come from people close to you.
Many people won’t like your advancement because it will remind them of their lack of it. Many people won’t agree with your direction because it will remind them of their lack of it.
No matter WHAT or WHO the opposition… you must stay true to you, and true to what is right. Do the right thing, by others, and most importantly by yourself.
Those who matter will come around eventually, and those who don’t, don’t matter.
Live your life with purpose, intention, FULL OF SPIRIT and make no apologies to mediocre minds for dreaming and living big.
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” – Albert Einstein
“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” – Albert Einstein
Yes, we must dream big. Yes, we must try new things… but if life is not going the way you planned, perhaps it is time to try a different approach?
You don’t need to change your GOAL, but you might need to change the road you take to get to it.
Never stop learning and developing yourself. You will find a way.
“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.” – Albert Einstein
The very fact you’re committed to grow, learn more and BE MORE almost guarantees you will make mistakes and fail, somewhere, somehow along the way.
Remember, it is only considered a failure though… if you give up. Keep at it, learn the lesson and allow it to serve you.
Don’t let anyone discourage you because of mistakes… it is a guaranteed trait of all winners and curious seekers.
“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.” – Albert Einstein
“I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.” – Albert Einstein
Never stop questioning… everything in your life.
Be so present, and in touch with yourself, that you can feel when it’s time for change.
Never lose that child-like curiosity to learn more, develop more, and discover more. Never lose HOPE that your best is yet to come. Never lose that knowing, that you are a miracle. Never lose that presence… that not many have…
“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” – Albert Einstein
Add value, wherever and whenever possible… not just in your work life, but in ALL interactions… with everyone… then, you will be a success… you will have more riches than money can buy.
