Keep At It.

Do What You Feel In Your Heart To Be Right For You‘ll Be Criticized Anyway.- Eleanor Roosevelt


The way to get to the top

is to get off your bottom. 

One day in the full of 1894, Guglielmo retreated to his room on the third floor of – parent’s home. He had just spent his entire summer vacation reading books and filling notebooks with squiggly diagrams. Now the time had come to work.

He rose early every morning. He worked all day and long into the night, to the point that his mother became alarmed. He had never been a robust person, but now he was appallingly thin. His face was drawn, and his eyes were often glazed over with fatigue.

Finally the day came he announced his instrument were ready. He invited the family to his room, and pushing a button, he succeeded in ringing a bell on the first floor! While his mother was amazed, his father was not. He saw no use in being able to send a signal so short a distance. So Guglielmo labored on. Little by little, he made changes in his invention so that he could send a signal from one hi to the next and then beyond the hill. Eventually his invention was perfected, partly by inspiration, but mostly by perseverance.

Guglielmo Marconi eventually was hailed as the inventor of wireless telegraphy – the forerunner of the radio. He not only received a Nobel Prize in physics for his efforts, but also a seat in the Italian senate and many honorary degrees and titles.

You can accomplish anything you set your heart on by combining your vision with hard work.
