11 Secrets gleaned from the Book “Elon Musk – Tesla, Space X and the Quest for a Fantastic Future” by Ashlee Vance, that you can adapt to generate more success in your life and business.
1. Be willing to pay people who can help you.
Pay people who are willing to share their expertise, advice, information, and wisdom.
2. Have a vision of where you want to accomplish and work to fulfill that vision.
Write a plan, set goals. Work every day to execute your plan and to accomplish your goals. Except that you will fail more times than you will succeed. Regroup after each failed attempt and try from a different approach, rinse, and repeat. Never quit, just keep trying, and eventually, you will achieve the results that you desire.
3. What people think of you especially y in the beginning has absolutely nothing to do with what you can accomplish.
Develop a thick skin when it comes to what people think of you and what you want to achieve. Everyone has an opinion and everyone thinks the opinions of others incorrect, so disregard the opinions of others who have not achieved what you desire to accomplish,
4. Read. Seek out information and knowledge from books.
Make it a daily habit of reading. “Leaders are readers” ~Jim Rohn~
All super successful people are avid readers: Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Mark Cuban, and Tony Robbins just to name a few.
5. Do not make it a habit of proving people wrong unless you want no friends and business associates.
Allow people to express their opinions. You do not have to agree with them and you do not have an obligation to prove them wrong. Be respectful and agree to disagree.
6. Sometimes it is okay to take a leap of faith and build your wings during the flight.
Gather your facts and take a leap of faith. Sometimes you do not need all the answers up front, Just learn as you go, make adjustments and continue on a course of action even in the face of difficulty or with little prospect of success. You may surprise yourself and succeed beyond your wildest dream.
7. Don’t take no for an answer.
Be persistent, know what you want, and go for it. Never give up.
8. Have a healthy work habit,
Work for what you want. Don’t expect something for anything.
9. Be careful who you listen to, not every opinion is good advice.
This especially applies to friends and family. They may feel as though they have your best interest at heart but, you are the captain of your own ship. Make your own decision and stick to your decisions despite the naysayers.
10. Sometimes what seems to be too good to be true isn’t too good to be true.
Learn to be your own best promoter. Sometimes it is good to promote your vision. There will be certain people who will want to help you build that vision. Welcome their help and pay them for their help if that is the correct thing to do (see secret number 1).
