Houdini is Inspirational but What About Albert Einstein?

Man of Magic or Man of Science?

This isn’t a battle of the icons, but since we did a post yesterday on the man who no handcuffs could hold, we thought that today we would share a quote from one of the greatest geniuses of all time, Albert Einstein. It just so happens that Yianni Stamas on his blog today featured a saying by the man of science:

“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.”

Think Long Term

We believe that Einstein is spot on in this quote. Some of us believe that the world is a cold and harsh place and that to survive one must be a fighter and not a philosopher. This is true to an extent, but we believe that success internally and externally is a choice. If you make bad choices most likely things are not going to turn out for you. But if you seek the value Einstein speaks of, when making choices you will be thinking long term and will select the road to true happiness.

Finding Your Way Through Life

Web Design Magician put the Einstein quote today in his blog as well. What is it that we are trying to say here? Life is all about choices. YOU have the POWER to choose your friends, associates and those who you are in business with. If you were offered a glass of poison versus a delicious healthy drink, you of the opportunity to select the one that will continue to be positive in your life. Stamas brings up the point about not having had good role models. This may be the case with you also. But if you use your intuition and street smarts you can find your way through life.

All Aspects of Business Success

Even DIYdigi is getting on the Einstein train today. DIYdigi for those of you who haven’t heard of them, is an entity which provides online marketing, but as you can see in this blog post by them, are concerned with all aspects of business success.
