Albert Einstein - Inspirational Sequence
Albert Einstein didn’t speak until three years of age and it took him several more years after that before he could speak fluently. He couldn’t read until he was seven years of age in elementary school was a struggle for him which led to many people suspecting him of being retarded? It’s been told that when his school teachers asked him a question he took forever to answer even silently mouthing the words to himself before slowly speaking them out loud. In fact, many people believed Einstein would never succeed at anything.
Einstein didn’t give it on his higher education, but continued to face difficulties at every turn. He applied to the Swiss Federal Institute of technology but failed the entrance exam and had to take it a second time for he was admitted to the school. The school even rejected his doctoral dissertation and called it irrelevant and fanciful, which I would suspect came back to haunt them years later when his brilliance was evident to the entire world.
After he finally graduated from college, he got a job as a clerk in a patent office. He said that he liked that job because it was mostly mindless and allowed him free time study and research scientific theories he was working on time. He stated in this job for a while but continued being very absent-minded. It is said that he often forgot simple things such as making sure he put on his socks before shoes, and it is also told that he wants misplaced day payroll check because he use it as a bookmark in his research.
Regardless of all of Einstein’s setbacks and rejection by the general public and education, he continued his studies experimentation and work on his theories. In fact, it was not until after one of Einstein’s first theories the special theory of relativity was published that the scientific community and the world truly recognized his great talents. However, even then many scientists throughout the world ridiculed him and attacked his theories calling them worthless and useless, and even going as far as saying that Einstein does not have a logical mind.
Things we learn from Albert Einstein’s life:
Einstein is considered as the father of Modern Physics. His research has helped build spaceships, satellites that travel to the space. His research is responsible for a modernised world in which we live. He managed to do all this because he had faith in himself. He was undaunted by the comments of the people. He knew one day the world will be at his feet. Similarly, we all have the ability to realise our dream. We only know what’s inside us; the world will have to bend in front of our persistence. Obviously life is all about second chance so every aspirant has to take a leaf out of this story and start a new beginning in order to realise your dream.
"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid". – Albert Einstein
