Thomas Edison struggles and how he overcame his struggles

  • In his early years Thomas Edison was difficult for teachers("Thomas Edison Biography").
  • "A hyperactive child, prone to distraction, he was deemed "difficult" by his teacher"("Thomas Edison Biography").
  • Later he was pulled out of school and started being self-educated. If he didn't start trying to teach himself he would have not known how to make things then he would have never started inventing("Thomas Edison Biography").

  • "It's alright. We've just got rid of a a lot of rubbish"("Thomas Edison’s Reaction To His Factory Burning Down Shows Why He Was So Successful").
