We all know great inventors such as Thomas Alva Edison, Archimedes, Leonardo da Vinci, and many more who have made their mark in history.


Good morning one and all, great things never come from sticking to our comfort zone. Else, we wouldn't have inventions or inventors like Thomas Alva Edison - my personal role model, who is also known as the Wizard of Menlo Park.


We all know him as the inventor of the light bulb. He had dedicated almost his entire time on this Earth to science and most importantly, so that the future generation would be able to lead a ‘bright’ life. He experimented 10,000 times to invent the light bulb. When asked why he never gave up; he said, “I have never failed. I've just found 10,000 ways not to make the light bulb”.


So you see if my friends, had these great inventors never come out of their comfort zone and had not gone the extra mile to make these inventions, then we wouldn't have the comfort of their inventions. Can you imagine even a day without Edison’s bulb, without Alexander Graham Bell’s telephone, or especially without Benjamin Franklin’s electricity? Well, what a luxurious lifestyle we are leading! All thanks to their hard work and stepping upon paths less trodden upon.


I would like to conclude with one of Edison's quotes- “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”


Thank you!
