Elon Musk is what the world refers to as the real-life Iron Man. He’s a genius as well as a businessman that looks after many companies. Not just that, but he’s a CEO that is as realistic as it gets. If you’ve been following his Twitter for a long time, you would know this too.
The man is a legend.
Getting to his level is a road that’s paved with barbed wires, landmines and a single blowtorch. It’s HARD because how he got to his current level was even harder.
But what’s his secret? Just because it’s near impossible to BE Elon Musk, doesn’t mean we can’t achieve a success ourselves. Of course we can! And here is how you do it.
Read to Lead
The first secret to Elon’s success and fame is reading. When he was a kid, he read and absorbed an entire encyclopaedia. What did YOU read when you were a kid? HE read something that’s actually substantial rather than the storybooks and picture books that were given to us as children. And he didn’t stop as a kid too. He kept reading all the way until he grew up. And he didn’t just read some dumb social media posts or some articles found online, he read proper books that actually gave some knowledge. Even when to pass the time.
Don’t Spend Too Much On Advertising
He doesn’t waste anything on some advertising. What he does is ask himself if it will give him the result or not. And if it doesn’t he stops it. The point to this is that the product will speak for itself. If it’s really good, then it will do great. He instead spends a lot of his resources on actually making the products he’s known for.
Before Life Gets In the Way, Take Risks
While you are still young and don’t have many commitments and obligations, take some risks. You won’t regret them because you aren’t hurting yourself much from them. When you instead do this at a later age, it will impact you, your friends, your family and your career. Do some life-changing risks now while you are still young enough to not care about the consequences (since there isn’t much to worry about).
Burn the Midnight Oil
If you think you’re stressed right now and that you aren’t motivated enough, especially if you’re feeling tired and need to rest, just remember Elon’s notorious work-ethic. He’s known for working a hundred hours a week. You don’t have to do the same but remember that you shouldn’t feel unmotivated right away. There’s room for improvement ALL the time. And hard work is always the key to it.
Instead of Complaining, You Should Create
We often complain about traffic and such. What Elon did instead was create The Boring Company and it seeks to create a tunnel system just to lessen road congestion.
What you find yourself complaining about, why don’t you do something to fix it instead?
