"Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value."
Or woman of value I would add. My interpretation of this quote...and the way I try to approach my life...is that instead of focusing on the ever moving...ever shifting...gauge of success...(because, let's face it, everyone's definition of success is different and likely filled with self serving interests), I try to focus on serving others...which means you provide value for their time.
By doing that, you increase the possiblity of doors magically opening for you by an exponential amount. In order to provide value, you must ask lots of questions to understand the other's true need. This also illustrates for the other person that you have a genuine interest. Converely, those that are purely self focused, focusing on their own success, go into presentation mode and waste someone's time with "used car salesmen" tactics.
In any event, I appreciate this quote by Einstein because again, I think the focus according to Einstein is that we are to essentially serve others.
