“When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor.” – Elon Musk
If anyone is allowed to state the above, it is Elon Musk. Musk is a visionary businessman and when he believes something will work, he does it, even if he is alone in his pursuit. His innovative ideas are always criticised due to their unrealistic nature, but even the most persistent critics have to admit that he puts those ideas into reality.
Do not let anyone tell you that something you want to achieve is completely impossible. Throughout history, many people have shown that, even though the odds were not in their favour, you can achieve great things. Christopher Colombus was told by his contemporaries that he was crazy to believe he could sail to the other side of the world by going westwards, but he did it and now he is known as the most famous explorer. Orville and Wilbur Wright proved that flying was not an unrealistic dream for humans. Landing on the moon was considered impossible, but Neil Armstrong put his foot on that silver soil. People will never believe what they cannot grasp. The globe is round, we have thousands of planes in the sky each day and we are exploring our solar system further and further. These things were once perceived as crazy ideas, but today, they are part of our reality.
In 1971, Elon Musk was born in Pretoria, South Africa. He currently lives in Los Angeles. Musk set up several innovative companies like PayPal, Tesla and SpaceX. These businesses have made him one of the wealthiest people in the world. Through his companies, Musk tries to change the world and how people live in it. His main two goals are reducing global warming and setting up a first human colony on Mars.
