Thomas Edison’s teachers said he was “too stupid to learn anything.” He was fired from his first two jobs for being “non productive.” As an inventor, Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. When a reporter asked, “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?”
Edison replied, “I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.”
I have a nice feeling of gratitude towards Thomas Edison for inventing technology thats lighting up our homes everyday.
