Einstein’s own thoughts on knowledge can be based on his quote:
“Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience.”
Not sure if I agree 100%, but experience leads to the vast majority of knowledge. In my own experience, I have found this to be true to a very high Continue reading
“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value”.
It’s said these days that one is paid by the value one gives out to the marketplace. The more value you offer to people and the more you can show that you have the solution to problems, the more likely you are to be rewarded.
As online marketers we see and give so much away for free that sometimes the perception is that there is no value to what is being offered. After all, FREE means nothing is being PAID, so how is there any VALUE in it?
A dilemma I’m sure, but one thing is certain Continue reading

Einstein didn’t consider himself a genius. He did, however, consider himself curious saying “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious”.
Do you follow your curiosity like Einstein did, or Continue reading
There are specific leadership skills that are needed in business, but are these universal? When in a corporate type of environment or manager of a team of people who are responsible to you for their performance in the work place, you lead the team towards specific tasks and tell these people what is required of them and then make sure that it’s done. This may be a simple analogy and there are more skills to effective leadership than that of course. Are these basics true of every kind of business? Continue reading
When we are born, we are born GREAT. Everyone who sees a new born baby think “what a beautiful baby” don’t they? Is this in indication that the baby is great? I think it could be. So…Why is it that we resist and deny our own greatness when we get older? There is an answer to this, which may be determined by how we’re programmed by the system, wherever we are in the world. I’m not sure, but we certainly have a different opinion to what is seen in us as a new born baby heading off on our journey through life. Continue reading
There are countless times where a person has confidence around their peers and can easily do a presentation with the leader present. What does this prove? It basically means that the person has no belief to step up to the plate when they have proved time and time again that they have the skill and the absolute ability to do what’s necessary. I don’t understand the lack of belief when the proof that the person CAN do the task and yet they won’t take the vital step and beat the fear and lack of belief. Continue reading
