Success and value quotation. Quotes by Einstien

Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value.
― Albert Einstein

The lesson from the quotation:

Here Einstein opined that it’s no matter how successful you are if you fail to be beneficial and useful for others.

Your value depends on your usage and not on the achievement of your goals for the sake of your own self.

For example, your goal of life was to be a great heart surgeon and luckily you became the one. It’s your success.

Yet you have no value if you don’t make revolutionary researches for the welfare of mankind.

You will soon get out of the minds of people if you do nothing to leave an impact on your field.

So it’s more important to focus on making yourself valuable rather than success for your own self.

However, it’s more pathetic to never make a try. Without making a try you never anticipate your success or failure.

Quotation on success confidence. Quotes by Mark Twain

All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure.
― Mark Twain

Means, you should not believe yourself perfect and excellent. Because nothing is perfect in this world. As you feel ignorant then you will find a huge space to learn and act upon, that will lead you to success.
