The great scientist D. G. Fahrenheit, the inventor of mercury thermometer, tried 1000 different materials in search of that one material which would measure the temperature accurately. When nothing worked fine, his subordinates were disappointed and said, “All our work is in vain. We spent so much time on this and we have learned nothing”
Fahrenheit replied with confidence, “Oh, we have worked for so many years and we have in fact learned a lot. We now know that there are 1000 materials that we cannot use to make an accurate thermometer”
We care so much about the results of actions that we forget about the efforts put. Mistakes happen to the best of us! The success lies in learning from the mistakes and not repeating them.
We live in a world where our own friends criticize us and demoralize us by telling us to give up because we failed many times. The one who does it right at the first go is appreciated and is considered winner while others still trying are losers.
Always Think Positive and don’t just appreciate the results, but efforts too!!!
A man who has made no mistakes is a man who has not learned anything. So don’t be afraid of making mistakes — it’s just part of an effective learning process.
NOTE: This is not a true story of Fahrenheit. Just shared for learning purpose
