Words of Wisdom

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

Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value. ~Albert Einstein

In other words, don’t focus on being rich or popular! Don’t focus only on achieving a status or position. All these are outside you and can be taken from you! What you want to do is to become so useful to people around you that they can’t do without you! Then riches and wealth and fame would naturally follow!

To be wise is to become a person of value! When seeking wisdom your focus is not on the loads of money or attention you would get but on the number of people you would help! You are not counting the number of hours you have worked or spent, you count the number of people that will be blessed by your investment.

If you are an employer you don’t focus on being promoted, you focus on how much your contribution is making a difference to the company goal and the world around you!

Are you an entrepreneur, then wisdom requires that you set your business up to solve a problem! Always know the problem around you to which you and your business is a solution!

Riches and honor always follow wisdom and people are always willing to pay for something that has value! You will be very rich if you focus on being valuable. It would take hard work and diligence but it is well worth the investment.

Take a look at this TED talk by Juwon Melvin who learnt to make money while making a difference! I first saw this video on motivatetube.com
