Thomas Edison tried two thousand different materials in search of a filament for the light bulb. When none worked satisfactorily, his assistant complained, “All our work is in vain. We have learned nothing.”
Edison replied very confidently, “Oh, we have come a long way and we have learned a lot. We know that there are two thousand elements which we cannot use to make a good light bulb.”
Hello there all …
I m studying in class 9 …Now

We can’t change our future but we can change our habits & surely our habits are will be change our future….
A great lesson..
Thank you so much i am passing horrible moments that will really help me

mistakes are our teachers, they teach us how to grow!
Your uncountable mistakes are you secret source of success.
Trying is best way for success
Cheerful story wow
Always Be positive!
We learn our mistakes good thoughts have good life…
Experience makes one stronger, the best teacher indeed
Mistakes are the tools which sharpen our skills
It good to read today……Learn form your mistakes..:)
Wonderfull thought by mistake
Awesome. No one get success in their first attempt. those who learn things from their attempts gets succeeded. Try to learn things from the mistakes and please don’t repeat the mistakes.
Failures are the stepping stones for success……..
It is good to learn from our mistakes and even better to learn from other’s mistakes as in our life time we can not afford to keep making mistakes.
Nobody is gifted with greatness. Men attain greatness by cherishing dreams, and exploring the possibilities to realize them. Every new thing is impossible in the first sight; but persistent efforts by the enterprising men make them sound I’m possible.
Our mistakes teach us more than our success !
We should always learn from our mistakes and should never lose hope
It’s a beautiful, short, sweet story which gives a very big lesson ”learn from our mistakes”
Life is like walking through snow every step shows.
It’s very nice, educative, & awesome!!!!!!!!!!
I think Tesla invented Alternating Current, not the light bulb.
Tesla and Edison were at each other’s throats regarding AC vs DC. Tesla eventually proved correct. Tesla was responsible for 60 cycles in that electric clocks would be correct. Unfortunately, low frequency rates make electric much more dangerous than high rates of say 100,000 cycles.
The untold story Tesla who invented the light not Thomas Edison.
Always learn from your mistakes otherwise you will never succeed in your life.
First learn from mistakes
To me there is no failure, because everything you do, that particular thing is new.
I’ve read this story before but really nice moral.
Mistakes help to find the right path.
We have to learn from our mistake… even from others mistake…!!!!!
Simply… it’s the work that’s important, the achievement comes later.
I believe that it is important to learn from our mistakes. Next week I will be a genius.
The moral of Edison’s story is try and try till you succeed, never give up. 2000 trials were not his mistakes these were his constant try.
It teaches us that be positive in every situation arrives before us.
I just want to be like T. Edison.
Mistakes and patience teach man to win.
Mistakes make man perfect, Always try to learn a new things from mistakes. It makes u perfect.
We should always try to learn something new everyday.
It’s really superb… I hope it will bring change in those who read.
Always learn from your mistake and think positive…. NO is not a negative word it mean “NEXT OPPORTUNITY” SO WORK HARD…..
Taste the Fails and Success will be Delicious (As simple as that ) !
Behind every great success, mistakes always happen.
Find some pluses in negative things.
Mistake is a step for explore for me.
Success comes after several attempts and failures. If we are afraid of failure then we can not venture into anything knowing that nothing venture, nothing have. Failure surely gives way before success follows. Nothing succeeds like success and nothing fails like failure.
It also tells us that to become successful we need to have patience.
In factories we used to quote “Do not learn through accidents”. But “Learn from mistakes” is an excellent proposition by Edison. Not only me, but all will like this.
Mistake is the teacher which reminds you, what had you missed in the past.
Yes everyone must learn things from their mistakes then only they will never ever repeat those mistakes.
Wow! It’s a brilliant thinking that we should always keep positive view.
What an inspirational story. Learn from mistakes then only you will be successful in your dreams.
We learn from failure, not from success!
Being optimistic really matters.
Anyone can make mistakes, just correct your mistakes and do not repeat them.
Perhaps it’s simplistic, but after at least 2000 “Mistakes”, he actually created the first light bulb. That’s the point. Those exercises weren’t mistakes, they were research.
Life is not a bed of roses. But if want to pluck out the rose, we have to go through the thorns.
It’s so awesome! Do not be disappointed when you make the mistake. I am sure because of mistake you learn a lot also definitely you will get solution to overcome the mistake. But one point should keep in the mind do not repeat the mistake again.
Mistakes give us a power to overcome the coming mistakes.
Everyone should learned from their mistakes.
Life is like is bathroom plant, it will always embrace dirt (mistakes) but that dirt(mistake) will make it to grow stronger and healthier.
If you did mistake in your work, we can learn many things from that….
I learned lot from my mistakes and lot more from others mistakes. Because simply we don’t have enough time in life to do all the mistakes.
Correcting mistake is better than getting right because learning takes place after correction.
We should learn from our mistakes, one who does succeed.
Learning process will lead us through right and wrong way. Getting wrong is discovering.
Intelligent people learn from others mistakes.
All stories are good with a moral and touching the core of the heart.
It’s a really impressive story…… so always do the mistakes to learn the new things…if u do the mistake, some time u got a new idea.
Believe in your self! Be responsible!
