Electrons move around their nucleus in a cloud, so if we think of them moving in a perfect circle (the standing waves oscillating around the circle), there has to be a specific number of wavelengths to fit perfectly in a circle. Because there has to be a specific number of wavelengths around the circle that is dependent on one specific wavelength, the energy levels therefore have to be specific.
