Nikola Tesla was a genius. He was an iconic thinker so profound — so above-and-beyond his time — that the story of his genius has reached mythical, legendary proportions.
But even geniuses struggle.
In Tesla’s case, he was determined to achieve the impossible. Something that had never been done before. Something that seemed to go against the very laws of nature itself.
He persisted. He lost sleep. He became obsessed. He feared he was chasing an impossible dream. But then he made a decision:
“With me it was a sacred vow, a question of life and death. I knew that I would perish if I failed.”
He decided he was going to solve the problem or die trying.
Nikola Tesla proved that with enough determination and persistence — when you set your sights on a goal and refuse to back down — even the laws of nature itself bend to your will.
