Terry Fox - Perseverance
Thomas Edison - Perseverance Story
This story illustrates perseverance very well as it contains Thomas Edison's one of the best stories of persistence and determination. Edison wanted to develop a new type of lightning device. During the period 1878 to 1880, he along with his associates, worked so hard to design an efficient incandescent lamp. Basically he wanted to design a high resistance system that would consume less electric energy compared to the arc lamps, which means developing small electrical lights for domestic use. Finally at the start of the year 1879, Edison built his first high resistance, incandescent electric light and fortunately it worked, but still for a few short hours. While improving the features of the bulb, Edison's persistence of all the years came in use. During this successful invention, he had used different kinds of carbonized filaments and a lot of other things as well. Edison knew that this first successful invention of him is very time consuming, so he didn't give up and continued his hard work and perseverance. And only because of all this determination, Edison's hard work finally paid off and he had produced a 16 watt-bulb that could last for a minimum of 15 hours and also stared introducing his new invention in the market.
