Nikola Tesla was born in Smiljan, in the Austrian Empire, which is in modern day Croatia. His parents were Serbian, and Nikola was raised in a mountainous region in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Tesla's early life was filled with ups and downs.
Tesla spent his childhood in Smiljan, Serbia, where he received various skills and mastered the German language. In 1862, his family moved to Gospic, Serbia, where his father served as a Parish Pastor. As a young man, Tesla developed his interest in physics, and he continued studying this subject throughout his life.
He is believed to have come up with the fascinating concept of specific repetitions in the sequence of 3, 6 and 9, which he believed to contain special Universal energy. His daily life and activities featured his belief in this special Universal code of 3-6-9… and many others since then have narrated several accounts of super successful outcomes by following his special numerical sequence!
Nikola Tesla made many important inventions during his lifetime. Most of these were later officially patented by others. In addition to the induction motor and dynamos, he developed radar, X-ray technology, and remote control. He also discovered the rotating magnetic field, the basis of most AC machinery. As a result, his contributions to AC electricity are one of his most famous.
He had the vision to create something revolutionary. Several of his initial discoveries and inventions are still very much in use today in their authentic concept and many of his original work allowed for later inventions by other scientists.
Nikola Tesla was a brilliant inventor, but an incredibly bad businessman. While his inventions revolutionized electrical power, as an entrepreneur, he was not particularly good at business… which meant he struggled to make enough money to sustain his company. Though he did experience success and acknowledgement of his accomplishments, he did not receive the extent of recognition that he deserved for inventing life-changing creations.
We find that history books have not given him his due credit and his genius was not as appreciated as it should have been… More than for his own work, the name Tesla, has become famous as it is now representing the name of a famous elective vehicle company (ofcourse started by another unique inventor of our time).
But irrespective of the fact that people gave him his due recognition or not, against all odds, Nicola Tesla continue to plug on (no pun intended) and invent, following his heart's calling! His thoughts and words are as inspiring as his inventions. I hope they motivate you to continue following your vision and walking your true path…
