Thomas Edison

By: Seth Lomax


When he was creating the light bulb he suffered many hardships and failures. He had over 1,000 failures when making the light bulb. But he had a more positive way of looking at it. He said he did not have 1,000 failures but that the light bulb had 1,000 steps.

How he influenced the World

The invention of the light bulb is one of the biggest inventions to shape our world. This is something that although has changed over time has keep the same basics that Edison set. The first official lightbulb was made in 1879. So over all this time his invention has changed the world and is still here.


I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.
This shows that he doesn't believe in failure but that no matter what you cannot give up.
