Albert Einstein is one of the most brilliant minds to exist on Earth. He is known for his theories on relativity and e=mc 2. He was a winner of the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery of the photoelectric effect.
Despite Einstein’s success, he grew up with many failures. He had to overcome many obstacles in order to become the successful genius that he was. He went through a lot of hardship, but it all paid off in the end.
Albert Einstein was born on March 14 th , 1879 at his mother’s home in Ulm, Germany. His family later moved to Munich where they stayed until Albert was one year old, then moved again to Pavia, Italy.
When Albert turned five years old they returned to Germany and settled down in Milan.
Here he began his education at a primary school called Luitpold Gymnasium which is today known as Max Planck Gymnasium. In 1895 after almost failing his first year exams due to poor marks for arithmetic, he switched to the nearby Institute Cantonal de Switzerland.
Einstein graduated in 1901 with a teaching diploma, but by that time he had already published several papers on theoretical physics.
The University of Zurich offered him the chance to continue his research without an obligation to teach, which gave him the opportunity to work at the patent office in Bern (1901-1909). Here he was able to devote most of his time to research and also do some lecturing at local universities.
In 1905 Albert Einstein published five articles that were considered as being worthy for the Nobel Prize. One of these articles explained that light consists of particles, now known as ‘photons’. Only one article won him the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery of the photoelectric effect – all others were rejected because they seemed too ‘speculative’.
Einstein had an IQ between 160-190 making him more than likely the smartest man ever lived on Earth. His success story shows us what people can achieve when they put their mind to something and truly believe in themselves. He was always curious about how things work, which allowed him to go far in his career as well as publish new theories on the world of science.
He believed that everyone has ‘genius’ inside them; they just need to find their
The world-famous Theory of Relativity that Einstein published was not even appreciated by scientists themselves. Only Henri Poincaré, an outstanding French mathematician and physicist, acknowledges the theory. The reason to why it has come this far is because other scientists at first did not believe in relativity theory which made Albert Einstein prove his theories once more.
When World War I broke out, Einstein was a committed pacifist. He believed that science can also be used for war purposes, so he wrote several letters to the US President Wilson asking him to develop atomic bombs.
Also he helped using his influence with the Academic Assistance Council that helped displaced German-Jewish scientists settle down abroad after fleeing from Nazi Germany.
It wasn’t until 1921, when he received the Nobel Prize for Physics, that Albert Einstein became a celebrity. He is considered to be one of the most influential people ever lived on Earth and also he is more than likely the greatest scientist ever lived as well.

Albert Einstein was one of the greatest scientist who ever lived on Earth. He put his mind and all his effort into becoming an amazing physicist and succeeded in doing so after overcoming many obstacles
Despite all his hardships and obstacles throughout his life, Einstein managed to overcome them and become successful. Being a brilliant mind doesn’t mean you’ll succeed – it takes hard work and determination in order to reach your goals and not give up no matter what.
Einstein’s story shows us that we should never lose hope on achieving our dreams; if we fail once it doesn’t mean we will fail again – all it
