Powerful lessons is all we need to succeed in life.
We all dream of achieving big things in our life, but how many of us can convert them to reality?
Generally, it is expected the person succeeding has a great mind or has better resources, or has been born with some unusual skills. Compromising with our situations, leaving our dreams aside, and responding to the practical things is what distracts us from achieving what we strive for.
Finding out the right reason for your goal and then planning correctly without ignoring the practicality is important. There is no science or logic or calculation that can help us in succeeding or stop us from the same. This all will be achieved through the strength of our thoughts.
In the famous work ‘The Art of War,’ Sun Tzu has mentioned – “Every Battle is Won or Lost Before it is Ever Fought.” This statement very well holds for success as well, the way we prepare ourselves for achieving our goals will decide the results. The preparation is a long process in itself, including lots of reasoning and planning. Our thinking must be positive and should be supported by perfect reasoning.
Motivational quotes by Albert Einstein to give powerful lessons
These six thought provoking Motivational quotes from a great philosopher Albert Einstein, will help in reshaping our thoughts. Once we will have our thoughts inline, we will never fail to plan strategically. Powerful lessons is all we need for shifting our thoughts.
1. I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious
Curiosity helps in enhancing our imagination. We generally don’t ask questions, thinking it will increases our work or land us in problem. As we are not interested in things that don’t bother us. On asking questions it makes our brain function more to solve our problems. By asking relevant questions, we find solutions to many such problems, which we considered not related to the situation.
2. A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new
Fear of failing or blames always stops us from trying. Unless we try, we will not learn and hence will not grow. No matter if we make a mistake, we will always learn from it. The lesson taken directly will give limited knowledge compared to learned practically with mistakes. People may laugh at you, but your mistakes makes you perfect. Mistakes are the best teachers.
3. Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value
One should strive to generate value in the work he is doing rather than running behind success. We define our success around materialistic things, having a big house, a business, BMW, and so on. Generating value out of this success for us and the society gives us happiness. Real happiness comes from sharing and helping others.
4. Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience
Just by collecting lots of information and data doesn’t help anyone. Experience it to get hands on knowledge. That’s the reason we have practical lessons and not just a booklet filled with information regarding any skill. One cannot learn swimming by sitting outside the pool.
5. You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else
Multiple powerful lessons are given through this quote. Along with showing us the value of rules and regulations, Einstein is putting the importance of better game. We all are quick to judge and are highly impatient in learning any new skill or any lesson. Whether like it or not we must learn all the rules. Only then we can play better to win. Knowing thoroughly is important to plan our defensive moves even if we are not interested in playing.
6. Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions. Imagination is more important than knowledge
We all have imaginations for our future. Imagination guides our action and leads in the direction to achieve our goals. Knowledge is important but imagination helps in setting our targets and gives creativity. The power of imagination helps in thinking further to achieve our goals in life. Through this quote Einstein has brought the importance of imagination in our life. Among all powerful lessons, the one on imagination is very crucial.
I agree it’s hard to stay positive all the times, but same goes for negative side. It’s not possible to hold on to the negativity for long else, negativity will engulf you. Nothing is built or demolished in one day. We are required to take a single step every time. No success is achieved in a single day. It takes lots of preparation along with the right approach. If we will not have right approach and zeal to achieve then a small hurdle will deviate us from our path. We must be consistent and adaptive in our approach.
