Elon Musk is a profound entrepreneur recognized for his audacious and unrelenting drive of revolutionizing the entrepreneurial landscape with green solutions. It qualifies to say that Elon is a serial entrepreneur with a number of successful startups under his belt. Ranging from Blastar to Zip2, X.com to PayPal. And most recently SolarCity, SpaceX, and Tesla.
Born and brought up in South Africa, he relocated to Canada at the age of 17 and the rest is history. Elon has become a global force to reckon with giving the strategic positioning of his companies. Tesla Motors is a company with the aim of making affordable, mass-market electric cars available to the public. SpaceX which made history of being the first private company to successfully launch a spacecraft to the international space station. And SolarCity which is the now the second largest provider of solar power in the US.
“If things are not failing, you’re not innovating enough.”
– Elon Musk
More strikingly for me, is the fact that all of these success stories once came near to the point of total failure. But the determination, perseverance, tenacity, courage and conviction displayed by Elon during those times brought a turning around from becoming a failure to a huge success.
In conclusion, I’m of the opinion, that success doesn’t come overnight. It takes a great amount of determination, hard work and gut to succeed in any endeavour. Most importantly of all, is to have the Almighty God on your side to help you navigate the tough and challenging moments of life that usually precede the dawn of success.
