Don’t Wait For The Odds To Be In Your Favor – Lessons From Elon Musk


Today we will learn from the Tony Stark of our generation!

Every one of us has a great idea. We are all capable of making it big. However, not every one of us is successful! The ones who have achieved success, have done it with their sheer determination to do things even if the odds are not in their favor.

Who can be a better example of this than Elon Musk

Elon Musk that we know today has to go through a lot to come where he is today. He invested almost all the money that he earned from PayPal in, not one but two game-changing and risky businesses, SpaceX and Tesla.

In both cases, you could say that the odds were not in his favor. While SpaceX was going to change space travel and make it cheaper by reusing the boosters, Tesla, on the other hand, was going to change our perspective towards electric cars.

Both the companies were risking everything to bring to the market products that were difficult. It was not a joy ride for Elon, but given the kind of visionary he is, he bet everything on making these companies successful.

There was a time when he almost went bankrupt, but his intense focus and determination paid off, and both the companies are not just doing well but also forcing industry leaders like Ford, General Motors, Lockheed Martin, Boeing to innovate to stay relevant.

This is the power of following your vision with firm determination.
