There are many revolutionaries born in the world, like Elbert Einstein, Napolean Bonaparte, Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, and many others. I put Elon Musk into the same category and we can call him as a modern revolutionary who thinks not just out of the box but out of the ordinary.
Elon was born to a Canadian mother and a South African father and was raised in South Africa. I can give you numerous examples of his prodigy as a child but this post focuses on more of what he does so that we can learn and become better at what we are doing in our lives.
By the age of 10, he read as many books as of equal to a graduate student. At the age of 12, he sold a video game for $500 to a gaming company.
What makes this exceptional and revolutionary guy so unique and successful that everybody is talking about him, I am writing about him and you are reading about him.
I want to share 3 super valuable lessons from Elon Musk for our growth and success:
#1 No alternative for personal development
Elon studied physics and business to invent something to make the world a better place and to share that with the people in the world. His attitude towards his development was crazy, he used to study on the subjects of the universe, space, economics, etc for hours because he knew that the first person he has to lead towards his dream is himself. He believed that nothing can replace the investment he puts on himself.
#2. Not seeking a solution is a problem
Elon was focused on seeking a solution rather than hovering on the problem. He always says that the problem is not an option, you have to find out a solution and there always is a solution. His efforts on finding a solution for future humanity gave us Tesla and Solar City which is a revolution in energy consumption.
#3. A failure is an option
Elon is billionaire Elon now, because of his attitude towards failure not exactly about success. He says that people have to learn that a failure is an option and people learn more from failure. His space x program was a big failure, he nearly went bankrupt, a contract from NASA was over but even then he didn’t give up and launched a 4th reusable rocket and got a huge success and now he is the richest person in the world.
Let me ask you, Do you invest time on your personal development? Are you a problem hoverer or a solution seeker? Do you find failure as a learning curve or as an end of life?
Let us learn these valuable lessons from Elon Musk and implement in our lives and make it a long-life attitude.
