“He thinks himself, learns by himself, and shows into action and succeeds. That’s Elon Musk for you”
I would be very surprised if you don’t know Elon Musk. The man behind some great achievements. You will find many documentaries and articles written about him that you must read and watch. He is an inspiration and example for the young generation and entrepreneurs.
But today in this article I want to remind you not of Elon Musk’s biography but of the lessons learned from his efforts and achievements.
Why Elon Musk is so different from others?
What is his biggest strength?
I am going to answer all these questions today.
Things to learn from Elon Musk
I want to make it clear that these are not the only four things we can learn from him. If Someone reviews it, he can learn hundreds of things from him.
For now, I will share with you four things that will come in handy in your career and throughout your life. You have to read with full attention and determination!
Elon Musk’s greatest strength is that he sees the future Instead of thinking about the present. He thinks about what the future holds. What can be done and what can be improved from the present.
This feature is very rare in entrepreneurs.
Musk is one of them who has this ability. There is no problem yet that he is trying to find a solution.
Which later became PayPal with help of confinity.
Which is being used all over the world as a reliable money transfer network
Then Elon Musk came up with the unique idea of settling people on Mars.
He thought of building rockets that could be reused and built at a lower cost
That’s why he founded SpaceX, the first private company to make reusable rockets.
Then in 2004 Elon Musk made another big decision. At a time when electric vehicles were not so popular. Nor were these vehicles used so much.
Musk didn’t stop there, he just kept thinking and going.
He decided to build a hyperloop that could cover a distance of 560 kilometers in just 35 minutes to make transport faster and faster.
And it’s going to start soon. That’s the potential that Elon Musk has.
And what I recommend to you is to think about the future instead of living in the past. There are more opportunities and chances in the future. This is a quality that we can only learn from Elon Musk.
The other strength of Elon Musk that you should embrace is self-confidence.
Musk believes in his idea as if it is complete and this is one of the great secrets of his success.
He has so much faith in his idea that he doesn’t even care about those who speak and write against his idea.
When he built SpaceX, his first three experiments failed.
He was criticized and his idea seemed to fail, but Elon Musk announced that he
would soon launch a fourth rocket.
Everyone was amazed but Musk was convinced of his idea and hard work. He experimented for the fourth time which was successful and he surprised the world.
But another surprise is that he did not learn it in any university but he learned everything by reading books and did it himself.
Following the success of the experiment, He received a 1.5 billion contract from NASA.
Just think that on the one hand, everyone was so disappointed with it that it is very difficult to make this kind of rocket. And he is going to lose everything.
As soon as it succeeded, NASA awarded him a billion-dollar contract.
This should make you realize that it is not the job of the entrepreneur to give up
The biggest thing is to work hard and believe in your idea. Keep working hard with focus.
No matter what negative happens, don’t give up.
You don’t have to be afraid of opponents. You have to be steadfast. Success is very close. Just think like Elon Musk!
I will ask you a question here
What do you think people would do when SpaceX failed three times?
Would someone try and dare to try it a fourth time?
I don’t think so, but Elon Musk is a risk-taker. He knows that you can’t do anything without taking risks. In the first step, everyone will criticize you and the way you are working. But you have to understand what happened to Elon Musk when he took risks?
What was the result of taking the risk?
He puts all his money at risk. He invested 50 million in Tesla at a time when it was at a loss.
But Musk took the risk and today Tesla’s value is even higher than Ford’s.
And Tesla is working on bringing self-driving cars to market in the future, which is a huge project and will lead to a revolution.
When you don’t take risks, results will be ordinary.
But risk-taking success is extraordinary, like Elon Musk. You should know that!
One of the great things to learn when Elon Musk sold the zip2 to Compaq in 1998. He got $22M from the deal.
From which he could have easily lived a comfortable life.
He could have started a small business. But it wasn’t in the nature of Musk. He went ahead and made PayPal.
When eBay bought Paypal, He got $165million which is a huge amount.
But instead of stopping and sitting, he went ahead and invested in Tesla, and then he didn’t stop there.
He started SpaceX and succeeded in it. He didn’t even stop at SpaceX and started working on Hyperloop.
After that, he created companies like NuraLink, the boring company, openAI.Which works in different sectors.
The biggest of these is the hyperloop. That will change the world of transportation and revolutionize the world.
But what do you think Elon Musk will stop?
He will not stop at all!
He will keep going and marching towards the future.
The point of writing this article is that you should adopt all these qualities and follow Elon Musk. You don’t have to create SpaceX, but you can do whatever you want in any field you love.
No matter in which field you are, you should go with these four golden qualities that will give you magical results. These qualities will put you far ahead of the competition. Just remember that you have to
Believe in yourself and your ideas
Take risks if needed
And do not stop after one goal is achieved, move forward!
