Look at the lives of successful people around the world. You will find that they all are unique and yet similar in some way. They were people who went and did things which no one else was doing at that time. They think different and their actions are even different. They brought with themselves a new idea, new thinking.
But at the same time they all had what it takes to reach that height of success. Be it hard work, time management, leadership qualities, discipline, perseverance, determination, focus, desire, ambition, confidence.
They were and are geniuses, one of a kind, one in a million
But knowing this doesn’t mean that you should discourage yourself. Because they too are like you and me only. They too have failed. The only difference is that they had the courage to stand up once again and time and again to fulfill their goal. Everyone fails. But those who stand up, stand out!
“My favorite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.”

Elon musk’s take on risk: “Failure is an option here. If things are not failing, you are not innovating enough.”
Elon musk, the founder of PayPal, and currently the CEO of SpaceX. He has been said to be more interesting than Steve Jobs! The only private company to fund space missions, now that is something.
There is a lot to learn from Elon Musk. He thinks so far ahead that he has literally started to think about establishing colonies in the outer space and other planets seeing the condition of earth. Readers pay attention, that is the kind of vision that is needed.
