5. Make Mistakes
“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.” -Albert Einstein
If we do the same things that we always did, then we rarely enjoy new things. But monotonous life is pretty boring, right? Not to mention, it stops our growth because we aren’t trying anything new. When we do things we never did before, we are bound to make mistakes. What’s important is not that you don’t ever make a mistake but that you learn from it. We learn more from our mistakes than from doing everything right. Mistakes are tough in our confidence, but it makes us more resilient and tests our focus towards the end goal.
6. Live in the Moment
“I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.”
Every wise person talks about the importance of being grounded in the present. Because the moment is all that we truly own. It’s futile to think about the past as we can’t change a thing. And if we care about our future then we should start living in the moment, because that’s the only way we can create the best future for ourselves. So friends, seize the moment and stop worrying about what’s to come!
7. Strive to create value
“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” -Albert Einstein
Most people chase success. But the ones who are truly successful in life focus on creating value. Someone who knows how to add value to a system holds power. When you focus on creating more value, you are essentially giving people what they care about. It’s important to have a mentality to create and give instead of taking. Adding value is the most constructive benchmark of success.
8. Don’t be repetitive
“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” -Albert Einstein
In today’s world, dissatisfaction and unhappiness are rife. But how will you change your feelings if you don’t change the way you do things? Following the same process and expecting different results is foolishness. If you’re unhappy with any part of your life, maybe a relationship or your career, you should muster the courage to try something different. First of all, one must understand and acknowledge the feelings of being stuck, then solve the problem with a new perspective.
9. Real knowledge comes from experience
“Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience.”
One can read several books, watch movies and consume every source of information, but you’re truly knowledgeable when you’ve experienced it in real life. People can relate to true stories and personal experiences more, hence an experienced person will hold more authority than a person who is just well-informed.
10. Learn the rules well and then strive to play better
“You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.” “Never give up on what you really want to do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than one with all the facts.” -Albert Einstein
Hold on to your dreams and try your level best to turn them into reality. First of all, you have to learn the game from experienced people in your field, but your aim should be to always outperform everyone else.
Just be committed to your passion and try to be your best.
