What You Can Learn From Einstein and His Failures [Infographic]

Written by Jessie Liu

Life doesn’t always go as smoothly as you plan. And while it sometimes may seem you’re the only one who struggles, that’s far from the truth. People in powerful positions with successful lives and oodles of respect are not always born as golden children with the smarts, savvy, wealth, and instinct to be on top.

Take the one and only Albert Einstein—the founder of relativity, everyone’s go-to example of a bona fide genius. His journey to leaving an indelible mark on the world was far from smooth and easy!

Follow the path of his life below (as seen on LifeHack) to see the twists and turns it took (from starting out with learning struggles and being called lazy, to being the mind of the century). Maybe seeing how even Einstein’s professional life was not without its bumps will inspire you to keep your head in the game and your eye on the prize, no matter what happens.
