Albert Einstein is considered to be one of the most brilliant geniuses who discovered many powerful truths in life. With all of his life experience he came to the conclusion that it was so important to keep learning and asking questions, that imagination is more important than knowledge.
Scientists have discovered that we use about 4% of our brains, so that means we do not use 96% of our brains. We know what we know, and we do not know a lot more than we know. So it make sense for us to live our lives from the place of asking questions and discovering how life works and being open to what we do not know instead of acting or thinking like we know it all or how it is. Don’t you agree?
There is a concept called Beginner’s Mind. Beginner’s Mind refers to being open to learning about life. What would happen if you approached life every day, every moment with honesty, openness and willingness to learn and discover?
The mind is like a parachute, it works best when it is open.
Here is a wise approach to life. Be an anthropologist. Study successful people, spend time with successful people. Discover what their values are, their level of energy and commitment. What do they do and how do they do it? What is their mindset, their belief systems and their values? How do they dress, speak and present themselves? What is their recipe/strategy for success?
Are you a student of success, because to become a Master or Teacher, you have to be a good student first? Study how life works on this planet. Isn’t this a wise approach to being as successful as you can be?

This is your life and you either shape your perceptions or someone else will. You either program your mind or someone else will. No one can affect us unless we choose to let them. No one can do anything to us unless we allow them to. No one can hurt us unless we choose to hurt ourselves with the information they share or by allowing people to take advantage of us. We can live our lives as the SOURCE of our own lives or we can live our lives as a victim. It is either Victory or Victim depending on our choice. Also, not making a choice is actually a choice.
