The man himself, Albert Einstein, the brain above all others, had a formula for success as well. It simply states the following:

If A equals success, then the formula is: A=X+Y+Z.

X is work.

Y is play.

Z is keep your mouth shut.

This “Brain Wrenching Formula” was what Einstein believed you needed and it consisted of only a few elements.

“Keeping your mouth shut” was possibly Einstein’s ‘KEY’ element of his formula for success.

  • Knowing when not talk and when to listen was vital.
  • Listen to others.
  • Listen to yourself.
  • Listen to nature.
  • Listen to the inner power.

We all love hearing our own voice. It has a certain ring to it and makes up feel important. But that is mostly vanity and self enrichment. To Einstein self enrichment should never be the reason for seeking success.

Einstein, however, was not someone who did a lot of talking. He simply did his work, a bit of playing and a bit of talking. Einstein felt that we should all concentrate on contributing value to society as a whole, and to stop chasing success. By contributing to society in a meaningful way, success was possible.

Aristotle put it in context for us when he stated – The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

It also depended on what you defined as success. Ensuring that we feel important is not what success is. Contributing towards success for the betterment of society as a whole was true success to him, and if anybody should know, Einstein should.

We need to find “That Thing” what we truly love doing and make that our vocation – our work – our labor of love. In others words – If our vocation felt like a vacation, then you have found your niche in life and there would be a universe filled with happy people.

Once again, Aristotle, the master Greek philosopher stated it well by stating; – Where your talents and the needs of the world cross; there lies your vocation.



Letting Go

By Anonymous

To let go doesn’t mean to stop caring;
It means I can’t do it for someone else.
To let go is not to cut myself off…
It’s the realization that I can’t control another…

11709839_1015621243437j7355_8111524924143509671_nTo let go is not to enable,
but to allow learning from natural consequences.
To let go is to admit powerlessness,
which means the outcome is not in my hands.

To let go is not to try and change or blame another,
I can only change myself.
To let go is not to care for, but to care about.
To let go is not to fix, but to be supportive.

To let go is not to judge,
but to allow another to be a human being.
To let go is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes,
but to allow others to affect their own outcomes.

To let go is not to be protective,
It is to permit another to face reality.
To let go is not to deny, but to accept.
To let go is not to nag, scold, or argue,
but to search out my own shortcomings and correct them.

To let go is not to adjust everything to my desires,
but to take each day as it comes and cherish the moment.
To let go is not to criticize and regulate anyone,
but to try to become what I dream I can be.

To let go is not to regret the past,
but to grow and live for the future.
To let go is to fear less and love more.

By Anonymous
Always remember to forget
The things that made you sad
But never forget to remember
The things that made you glad.

Always remember to forget
The friends that proved untrue.
But don’t forget to remember
Those that have stuck by you.

Always remember to forget
The troubles that have passed away.
But never forget to remember
The blessings that come each day.



[Extract from THE SECRET LAW OF ATTRACTION as explained by Napoleon Hill]

The following is adapted from Napoleon Hill’s explanation excerpted from law of Success: The 21st century edition:

dscf6602Every living thing below the intelligence of man lives, reproduces itself, and fulfills its earthly mission in direct response to the power of cosmic force of habit through what we call instinct.
Man alone has been given the privilege of choice with connection with his living habits, and this he may fix by the patterns of his thoughts.

You may control your destiny to an outstanding degree – simply by exercising the privilege of shaping your own thoughts. Once these thoughts have been shaped into definite patterns, they are taken over by the law of cosmic Habitforce and are made into permanent habits, and they remain as such unless and until they have been supplanted by different and stronger thought patterns.

In all of nature there are fixed habits. Water always has two atoms of hydrogen, never one; apple seeds never grow into Orange trees; and nobody ever falls off the earth for lack of gravity. Every aspect of life relies upon the laws of nature to make sure that if we do A, then B will always be the result.

Cosmic Habitforce is the law of nature that says habits become part of your nature through repetition. If you keep repeating certain ideas in your mind, Cosmic Habitforce will take over those patterns of thought and make them your natural reaction.





Too True, Too Often
By Anonymous

19028_10156172295397355_7805458022458328222_n.jpgToo often we don’t realize
What we have until it is gone
Too often we wait too late to say
“I’m sorry – I was wrong.”

Sometimes it seems we hurt the ones
We hold dearest to our hearts
And we allow foolish things
To tear our lives apart.

Far too many times we let
Unimportant things into our minds
And then it’s usually too late
To see what made us blind.

So be sure that you let people know
How much they mean to you
Take that time to say the words
Before your time is through.

Be sure that you appreciate
Everything you’ve got
And be thankful for the little things
in life that mean a lot.


How Unique Are You Really?

11053175_1149084715108868_4435108004017552260_nThink what a remarkable, unduplicatable, and miraculous thing it is to be you! Of all the people who have come and gone on the earth, since the beginning of time, not ONE of them is like YOU!

No one who has ever lived or is to come has had your combination of abilities, talents, appearance, friends, acquaintances, burdens, sorrows and opportunities.

No one’s hair grows exactly the way yours does. No one’s finger prints are like yours. No one has the same combination of secret inside jokes and family expressions that you know.

The few people who laugh at all the same things you do, don’t sneeze the way you do. No one prays about exactly the same concerns as you do. No one is loved by the same combination of people that love you – NO ONE!

No one before, no one to come. YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY UNIQUE!

Enjoy that uniqueness. You do not have to pretend in order to seem more like someone else. You weren’t meant to be like someone else. You do not have to lie to conceal the parts of you that are not like what you see in anyone else.

You were meant to be different. Nowhere ever in all of history will the same things be going on in anyone’s mind, soul and spirit as are going on in yours right now.

12717176_1271677389516266_3185442817146735946_nIf you did not exist, there would be a hole in creation, a gap in history, something missing from the plan for humankind.

Treasure your uniqueness. It is a gift given only to you. Enjoy it and share it!

No one can reach out to others in the same way that you can. No one can speak your words. No one can convey your meanings. No one can comfort with your kind of comfort. No one can bring your kind of understanding to another person.

No one can be cheerful and lighthearted and joyous in your way. No one can smile your smile. No one else can bring the whole unique impact of you to another human being.

Share your uniqueness. Let it be free to flow out among your family and friends and people you meet in the rush and clutter of living wherever you are. That gift of yourself was given you to enjoy and share. Give yourself away!

See it! Receive it! Let it tickle you! Let it inform you and nudge you and inspire you!

11393126_1129785007038839_5552374927587643387_nYOU ARE UNIQUE!

dscf5967-2I’ve heard it said don’t go to bed
while hanging on to sorrow,
you may not have the chance to laugh
with those you love tomorrow.

You may not mean the words you speak
when anger takes its toll,
you may regret your actions
once you’ve lost your self-control.

When you’ve lost your temper
and you’ve said some hurtful things,
think about the heartache
that your actions sometimes bring.

You’ll never get those moments back,
such precious time to waste,
and all because of things you said
in anger and in haste.

So if you really love someone
and your pride has settled in,
you may not ever have the chance
to say to them again….

“I love you and I miss you,
and although we don’t agree,
I’ll try to see your point of view,
please do the same for me.”


The Friend Who Just Stands By
By Anonymous

me-n-shantelWhen troubles come your soul to try,
You love the friend who just stands by.
Perhaps there’s nothing they can do,
The thing is strictly up to you.

For there are troubles all your own,
And paths the soul must tread alone.
Times when love can’t smooth the road,
Nor friendship lift the heavy load.

But just to feel you have a friend,
Who will stand by until the end.
Whose sympathy through all endures,
Whose warm handclasp is always yours.

It helps somehow to pull you through,
Although there’s nothing they can do.
And so with fervent heart we cry,
God Bless the friend who just stands by.



Israelmore Ayivor

Sow the seeds of hard work and you will reap the fruits of success. Find something to do, do it with all your concentration. You will excel.

Show the world you are not here to just pass through. Leave great footprints wherever you pass and be remembered for the change you initiated.

Flow wherever you go. You can’t be limited. Dare to rise above all limitations and become better than you were. Strive to arrive at the top.

Glow wherever you go and let the light of God reflect in the world around you. You carry the light of God and wherever you pass, darkness must flee.

Grow your talents and skills through a consistent practice and progressive learning. Learn to relearn and unlearn. Raise the bar for yourself always.

Blow out all negative attitudes and live true to your dreams. Talks less and act more. Be confident and see yourself wining even before the victory comes.

Know God and let Him be known. You were saved by grace for greater works apportioned for you even before you were born. Share the good news.

I am proud of you because greater things that eyes have not seen yet, the Lord will do through you.”
