Live your best life with 5 lessons we can learn from Albert Einstein on how to discover our E = mc2

I’ve had a realization…that the great Albert Einstein can not only teach us a lot about theoretical physics (after all he is one of the smartest people who ever lived). I have re-discovered him in a new light, applying his quotes (and mis-quotes) and words of wisdom to how we can find inspiration and live our best life. See if they work for you too…

1.Be Authentically you.

“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”

“Most people say that is it is the intellect which makes a great scientist. They are wrong: it is character.”

“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.”

2.Be curious and feed your imagination.

“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.”

“The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.”

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions. Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”

3.Stick with it and be open to learn from mistakes.

“It’s not that I’m so smart; it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”

“In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity.”

“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”

“Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience.”

4.Solve complex problems worth solving, but make sure the solution is simple.

“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”

“Any fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage — to move in the opposite direction.”

“If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes.”

“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

5.Live and enjoy the moment, be present.

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

“I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.”

So all those quotes of inspiration got me thinking…

What if Einstein’s great scientific breakthrough on the special theory of relativity (E = mc2 ) could not just be used to explain the exponential energy release that created the atomic bomb, but to living our best life, would that work?

So as per Einstein’s words of wisdom “I stayed with my problem longer” and pondered upon how small changes create significant results, and I came up with this.

E is Energy = positive change in how I think, feel and act.

M is Me, I need to be open and receptive to new ideas and experiences.

C is Continuous inspiration from whatever and whoever inspires me.

2 is the multiplier of seeking out and feeling the effects of what inspires me. It’s taking the time to really absorb inspiration in all its forms.

My final reflection from my pondering was, it’s this final multiplier effect we don’t always achieve, and we need to pay attention to. The need to pause, be present and take time for those things we find inspiring whatever they are. What they are to each of us is highly personalised. We need to seek them out and appreciate them.

What are yours? Watching a Ted Talk, Walking barefoot on the beach, Playing with the kids, Exploring something new…

Whatever they are, with the weekend ahead of you, work on your E = mc2
