Thomas Edison’s teachers said he was “too stupid to learn anything” so his mother removed him from the school and taught him herself. Also, he was fired from his first two jobs for not being “productive enough”.
Ironically, Thomas Edison is now considered one of the greatest innovators of all time. His success after over 10,000 failed attempts to invent a commercially viable lightbulb has set a good example of what perseverance truly is.
