What do I (Ron White memory guy) have in common with Albert Einstein? Well….honestly not much.
With that said, I have always been fascinated by the man and his life. So much so that I created a 6 CD product titled ‘How to Develop The Mind of Einstein’. Of all my products this one really is the most unlike the others. It is not instructing the listener to memorize, speed read, improve sales or give a step by step on motivation. Instead, I simply look at the life of Albert Einstein and what his thought process was like as he approached daily life challenges.
One of my favorite Einstein stories is when his son came to him and said, ‘Dad, I am so broken hearted I love this girl but she has rejected me.’ Albert Einstein, one of the greatest minds of all time said, ‘Son, life is like a bicycle in order to keep your balance you have to keep moving.’ What great advice on dealing with a broken heart!
He also had quite the sense of humor. One day he was talking with his driver and his driver remarked that he had heard Einstein give his lecture so many times on physics that he could probably give it. Einstein thought this would be hilarious so at the next lecture the driver gave the lecture and Einstein sat in the back. When the driver opened up for questions the first question was most definitely out of the driver’s realm of knowledge so he said, ‘Why that question is so simple I bet my driver could answer it and point to Einstein.’
Another example of Einstein’s humor was when he picked up a baby and the baby started screaming. He looked at the baby and said, ‘Why you are the first one to give me your honest impression of me in years!’
While he most certainly had a tremendous sense of humor he also tackled the biggest challenges and mysteries of science. In true humble Einstein fashion he once remarked, “It’s not that I’m so smart , it’s just that I stay with problems longer .”
If you would like to learn more about the life of Albert Einstein perhaps my CD on How to Develop The Mind of Einstein would interest you.
