Here are some success secrets from Elon Musk:
1.Work! Work! Work!
The first and foremost rule of becoming successful at anything is to work like hell. According to him, if you work twice as hard, even if you do the same thing as others, you can achieve the goal earlier. To do it, you need to put in 80 hours to 100 hours every week.
2.Be a reader
Elon Musk is an excellent reader. He finished the entire Encyclopedia Britannica in his childhood, and the flow only grew! Every successful person in this world is a continuous reader and learner. There is no end to learning, and they are undoubtedly the greatest earners of society.
Elon says, “You don’t know what you don’t know. You realize there are all these things out there.” Through only reading, you can learn what you want to know and what you don’t know.
3.Never fear failure
There is no shortcut to success but it has a big path of failure. Achieving something without any failure means the goal was not innovative enough. To him, the most important part is to try even if the probable outcome will be a failure. When he started Tesla, he thought it would fail, still, it didn’t stop him from pursuing his dreams.
4.Develop new skills
Always be ready to invest in yourself and learn whatever you need to achieve your goal. Before Tesla, Elon musk never had any car company, yet it didn’t let him stop from creating the finest electric car company. His mission was to break the idea that electric cars are ugly and slow.
He was not a rocket scientist either, so his life promotes the thought that you can become anything if you are potential enough.
5.Never Give Up!
It doesn’t matter how worse the scenario is or how painful to continue, you should never give up. Whatever the goal you have set, if you give up then you will be a complete failure!
From Elon Musk’s life, you can clearly see it. In SpaceX, he invested 100 M dollars and the first project SpaceX Falcon 1 launch was a failed mission. But right then he announced to the public that he would never give up. This leads him to success.
It doesn’t matter whether your life goals are effort or hard work, honesty always pays off. Learn from this real-life hero who almost made impossible tasks to change the world.
