Elon Musk Failures – The Richest Man in the Wolrd Failed Many Many Times !

We learn that:

When you see a problem, you don’t complain about it, instead you try to find a way and solve it.
You don’t just dream big, but you wake up and work hard (really hard) to achieve it.
You don’t just think about yourself, you care for the causes which affects the nature and the future of human beings.
You do what needs to be done, not what is easy, nor what is normal.
You don’t give up when you fail, you try to find out what went wrong, you learn from your mistakes and come back stronger.
You don’t lose confidence when things are not going your way and you stay humble while you are on the peak of success.
You learn that it is possible to teach yourself rocket science.
And you never forget to be cool…

What is Elon Musk like in person?
I only spent the one afternoon with him, at a Model S launch event, but was struck by a few things:

He’s a much more imposing presence than TV appearances suggest – I was surprised at just how tall and portly (yes, I mean he looked quite fat) he was. He’s a seriously big guy, and I must admit I was a pretty intimidated by him.
He has a real nervous energy about him – He has a fast walking pace, wanted to get things done quickly, and you could see he was always thinking ahead, not wanting even idle time to go to waste (eg. while being introduced to go on stage, he was simultaneously listening to the speaker while answering emails on his phone)
He comes across quite cold – not unpleasant, just direct, polite and with no airs or pretences. While speaking with a small team of us, he answered our questions sincerely, but when someone asked what he obviously considered a dumb question, he didn’t hide the fact that he thought so.
What was most striking was how these personal qualities are mirrored by the overall Tesla Motors corporate culture. He has a very no-nonsense, direct, “get shit done” persona, and that’s exactly what the vibe is at the company.
