28 Dec A Little Tougher..a Little Kinder
Thomas Edison one of the greatest inventors in America, could have ended up a very different story had it not been for his mother. One of the greatest minds in recent history had no formal education was home schooled by his mother. The famous tale of his schooling goes as follows:
One day, as a small child, Thomas Edison came home from school and gave a paper to his mother. He said to her “Mom, my teacher gave this paper to me and told me only you are to read it. What does it say?”
Her eyes welled with tears as she read the letter out loud to her child…
“Your son is a genius. This school is too small for him and doesn’t have good enough teachers to train him. Please teach him yourself.”
Many years after Edison’s mother had died, he became one of the greatest inventors of the century.
One day he was going through a closet and he found the folded letter that his old teacher wrote his Mother that day. He opened it…
The message written on the letter was “Your son is mentally deficient. We cannot let him attend our school anymore. He is expelled.”
Edison became emotional reading it and then wrote in his diary:
“Thomas A. Edison was a mentally deficient child whose mother turned him into the genius of the Century.”
A positive word of encouragement can help change anyone’s destiny.
Time passes too quickly to live in a world where you don’t believe in the gifts you have to offer. Don’t believe the negative noise rattling around your head casting self doubt.
