What Can You Learn from Albert Einstein About Running Your Business?

We all know how Albert Einstein was, a great Nobel Prize scientist. His general theory of relativity changed how we understand space and time. No doubt, Einstein was a genius physicist that made enormous contributions to humankind in the 20th century. Moreover, with his theoretical and philosophical work, he’s been inspiring many people, including myself. That’s why today I wanted to share with you 7 of his most famous quotes to inspire you as well.

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving. -Albert Einstein

Nothing stays static. The universe is expanding, and we should expand with it. Each of us has enormous talents that only some utilize to a certain capacity. And even those who do, without continuous growth and movement, we won’t be able to tap to their full potential. Did you know that most people use only 10% of their potential? Yes, only 10%! Imagine what you could do, how you would be able to change your world and the world around you for the better even if you only used 50%? And what’s Einstein is saying here is that personal development is the first step to achieving that. When you stay stagnant, you get complacent, can lose balance and fall. When you keep moving by improving yourself, you expand with the world.

Are you thinking of reaching more of your potential, getting greater results in your business than you can ever get by yourself? If you’re answering yes to that, then let’s talk! Click here to schedule a free consultation with me.

Three Rules of Work: Out of clutter find simplicity; From discord find harmony; In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity – Albert Einstein

Once you start moving, complications in life will inevitably come. No one person in this world has a life laid out for them on a soft red carpet of rose petals. All of us, at some points in our lives, have our challenges to face and cross to bear. What’s different between people is how we handle them. Our problems are as complex as we make them be. Simplicity is the light in the tunnel. Finding it provides direction and leads to harmony. 

I talked more about simplicity only last week in my fabulous on-line community Businesswomen with Passion 4 Life. If you value simplicity as much as I do, join us here and watch the video from February 3rd to learn how simplicity can help you with your day to day difficulties. And when you treat challenges as opportunities to grow on top of it, you keep expanding your universe for the better.

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them. -Albert Einstein

I LOVE this quote. It’s so simple and so profound. How many times do we get caught up in the problem thinking it’s impossible to solve, and yet we don’t even make an effort to try to look at it from a different perspective? Whether it’s through stepping away, having an objective look at our role in it, or asking someone for advice. This very thing is one of the reasons why the most successful people have coaches: business, life, or health, coaches for areas in life when they are looking to grow and expand exponentially.

Why?

Because the coach offers a different perspective, they give you an opportunity to grow faster, change the way you think so that you can solve the problems you face and move forward by getting results. What are the biggest challenges you are facing right now in your life or business? Have you tried stepping away from them and seeking another angle to look at them?

I’d like to offer you a free brainstorming consult to talk about any challenges you’re facing in your business right now. Whether we end up working together or not, know that during this call you’ll gain a different perspective form my advice that can help you simplify things get past the current roadblocks and move forward faster.

So, don’t waste time to grow and schedule the free session here.

Creativity is intelligence having fun. – Albert Einstein

In case you thought that you’re not creative, I want to try and convince you otherwise. I know that people often associate creativity with arts only, but I agree with Einstein. We as human beings are all creative and being creative is fun. And especially you, as an entrepreneur, you create every day: your marketing content, new offers of your products or services for your clients, relationships you build, plans and visions you make, etc. Isn’t all that creativity as well? Now. that you agree and you’d like to tap into more of your creative potential but not sure how to unlock it, read more about it here.

A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new. – Albert Einstein

In other words, it’s impossible to try new things, experiment without making mistakes. Mistakes are part of discovery, learning, and our growth. It’s sad that through our childhood, many of us are conditioned to be scared of making mistakes, to play it safe. Such conditioning prevents us from reaching our full potential. However, the good news is that we can change that. We are responsible not only for everything we do and the consequences of our actions but also for our attitude toward what happens to us and. We have control of how we go about all of it. My call to you is, don’t fear to fail. Those experiences are fantastic opportunities to learn and can propel you to great results. So try new things, fail, learn, and keep going!

It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer. – Albert Einstein

We are all intelligent and can achieve amazing results when we persevere. The most successful entrepreneurs have grit, the uncanny ability not to give up and always go the extra mile. And it’s lonely out there on the extra mile because it’s not easy. It’s easier to give up instead of persisting when issues come up. It’s easier to get back to our comfort zone to avoid more challenges than staying with the problems longer to solve them. Most people chose an easy way out, but those who “stay with the problems longer” are those who rip the rewards.

Only a life lived in the service of others is worth living. – Albert Einstein

I’m sure this last one is a no brainer for you. Every entrepreneur I speak to or help started their business because they wanted to help. They have a talent, an idea that can help people, and that’s why they start their business in the first place. They want to change the world for the better. But since I’m posting this blog the week of Valentin’s day, I want to point this thought in a different direction – your personal life, your relationships there. Who do you serve? When we shine the light on others and don’t focus on ourselves, we become happier. As human beings, most of us feel fulfilled when we help others. This attitude makes us all leaders. So this Friday, shine a light on those you lead in your personal life and celebrate them. Who is it going to be? And most of all, extend that celebration for the next 311 days of this year.

Happy Valentine’s!
