“Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by the ability to climb a tree, it will live it’s whole life believing that it is stupid”

The quote mentioned herewith was stated by a man whose name does not require any introduction who is non-other than the greatest scientist Albert Einstein. Albert Einstein is recognized as a renowned physicist born in Germany and remembered all over the world for introducing the theory of relativity for his dominance over the philosophy of Science. The mass energy equivalence formula e=mc2 made him remembered even among the school going children as well. Due to his creativity and discoveries towards Physics, he received a Nobel Prize in the year 1921. Einstein was born on March 14th 1889 at UlmKingdom of WürttembergGerman Empire and died on April 18th 1955 at Princeton, New Jersey, US at an age of 76 years.

Einstein’s major life struggles and failures are hereby mentioned with the following points:

1.     Einstein was unable to speak up to an age of 4 years. Fluency in his speaking capabilities was not even noticed till 9 years of his age.

2.     Einstein was full of rebellious behavior at his school and accordingly the teachers used to neglect him always during the study hours.

3.     The dull and stupid behavior made him kicked out of his school which made him feel extremely demoralized and depressed.

4.     Einstein was admitted to Zurich Polytechnic School but soon after few years, he has been rejected from there as well owing to his inabilities to concentrate towards his studies along with the dull behavior.

"A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new."

5.     Einstein failed in the entrance exam of Swiss Federal Institute of Technology but succeeded in second attempt. His doctoral dissertation got rejected from there because of being irrelevant.

6.     His dullness and attitude of not being creative forced him to join a job as clerk after graduation. He too liked the job very much as there was no any special utilization of mind in the clerk’s chair.

7.     His theory of relativity was also ignored by most of the world scientists by calling it worthless and useless with blame of not having a logical mind.

Despite of the above failures and struggles, Einstein continued on his way towards success, became Professor at University of Zurich and proved his talents of being an exceptional scientist in the world scenario.

It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer.
