  • In the winter of 1922,

  • the world’s smartest man, Albert Einstein, was traveling from Europe to Japan for a lecture series.

  • And, it was during that journey that he learned he just won the Nobel Prize in physics.

  • Einstein was staying at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo.

  • One day, a courier came knocking on his door making a delivery,

  • but Einstein found that he didn’t have any cash to tip the courier.

  • So, instead of giving him a tip,

  • he gave him a signed, hand-written note in German.

  • And, 95 years later,

  • last month, that note was auctioned and sold for

  • 1.56 million U.S. dollars.

  • The world’s most expensive piece of advice

  • from the world’s smartest man.

  • So, what did Albert Einstein write?

  • He wrote,

  • “A calm and humble life will bring more happiness

  • than the pursuit of success

  • and the constant restlessness that comes with it.”

  • While I’m reading it, I find it really profound

  • that I wanna read it again.

  • “A calm and humble life will bring more happiness

  • than the pursuit of success

  • and the constant restlessness that comes with it.”

  • Now, just take a moment to reflect on yourself.

  • How many times have you felt frustrated, confused, and set-back

  • trying to reach that dream goal?

  • trying to get that job?

  • trying to get into that dream college or high school?

  • trying to make more money?

  • trying to set on the right career path?

  • get the right job?

  • get the right position?

  • right promotion?

  • I got a little confession that I wanna make.

  • Whenever I look at the number of my subscribers,

  • or the number of my views,

  • I get confused, I get frustrated, I feel set-back.

  • I get overly concerned about

  • how many people I’ve touched on social media

  • while in fact I should be concerning

  • how many hearts I’ve touched.

  • But don’t get me wrong,

  • I’m not saying you shouldn’t dream big,

  • or you shouldn’t try to reach out for your big goals.

  • I’m simply saying

  • Is it necessary?

  • Is it the key to your happiness?

  • After achieving these goals,

  • will it make you happy?

  • And, there’s nothing more that I would like to add to this video

  • but to repeat that note again.

  • “A calm and humble life will bring more happiness

  • than the pursuit of success

  • and the constant restlessness that comes with it.”

  • - from the world’s smartest man.

  • Peace!
