Everyone is familiar with the work of Albert Einstein, and he has long been regarded as one of the greatest scientists in recorded history.

While his ground-breaking scientific discoveries helped to redefine our understanding of the natural world, his contributions to society go far beyond his theories of relativity. More than 60 years after his death, Einstein’s unique perspectives continue to inspire generations of people to open their mind to the possibilities of the universe.

These 10 life lessons from Albert Einstein highlight how his philosophical ideals can change your life for the better, starting today.

1. We are all Equal

“I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university.”

In the grand scheme of the universe, we are all one. By respecting others, we respect ourselves.

2. There is Great Value in the Wonder of a Child

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”

By looking at the world through a child’s eyes, we can rediscover the spark of our own imagination.

3. Failure is a Necessary Part of Success

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

Some of the greatest discoveries in history were a result of mistakes. Never give up.

4. Curiosity is the Key to Innovation

“The important thing is to not stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.”

Curiosity is the driving force behind innovation and discovery. Never be afraid to question the world around you.

5. Your Thoughts Create Your Reality

“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”

Thoughts are powerful, and what we choose to focus on manifests the reality we live in.

6. Don’t be Afraid to Stand out from the Crowd

“What is right is not always popular and what is popular is not always right.”

You have a unique voice to share with the world. Don’t let the beliefs of others hold you back from your true potential.

7. Violence is Never the Answer

“You cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war.”

We will never know peace until we learn to set down our weapons, both in the world and in our own lives.

8. Embrace the Moments of Solitude

“I live in that solitude which is painful in youth, but delicious in the years of maturity.”

By finding solitude in the company of yourself, you will reconnect to the creativity within your own mind.

9. Genius is Only a Matter of Perspective

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

Our differences make us who we are, and by embracing our unique nature we can begin to release the judgements that separate our world.

10. Live in the Here and Now

“I never worry about the future. It comes soon enough.”

All we have is this moment in time. There is no peace in remaining trapped in the past or worrying about what is to come in the future.
