Some of you are impressed with the amount of money he’s able to generate. Some are with how smart and innovative he is. And some others, perhaps, are with the women standing beside him. Or if you’re like us, it’s all the above.
Elon Musk is the closest thing we have to limitless being. He wanted to have online payment, he co-created PayPal. He wants to go to space, he created SpaceX. He wants to make the world a better place, he made an electric car and established a solar panel company. He sets his mind on something and he does it.
Is it simply because he’s Elon Musk? Or is there something you can do to follow his path of greatness? We believe in the latter. And that’s why we come up with 14 ways to be limitless like Elon Musk. If you’re thinking, “No way, that’s impossible.”, that the first red flag you need to work on. Stop limiting yourself. Open your mind!
Think of the unthinkable.
Sounds semantically nonsense, we know, but this is the first thing you need to do to be limitless. Stop thinking like most people. Try to put yourself out of the ordinary box.
Elon is unique because he thinks uniquely. He is not a sheep who follows his herd. He is different, and he doesn’t mind being so.
So, next time your brain is telling you “no way”, don’t look away. Instead, follow that train of thoughts and let it amazes you.
Spend more time alone with yourself.
One of the first things people would notice from being around Elon is how much time he spends on thinking. He would sit alone and just let his mind wanders as if he’s not there.
Of course, it’s good to go out and hang out with people. But you should take some time alone and allow your brain to explore its corners sometimes. Let your brain works!
You can start by scheduling a quality “me-time” every day to do what you like by yourself. Read a book, solve a puzzle, listen to classical music or anything that would help you think deeper. Anyone up for some Bach “Prelude in C Major”?
Don’t just think. Do.
Elon might not be the smartest person on earth right now, but he is arguably the one achieving the most. There are many smart people and smart thinkers in this world, but unfortunately, not all of them are doing something significant. It’s not enough to just think and come up with brilliant ideas. What matters is that you do something to make that idea real.
Elon does not just think. He engineers. Be like Elon.
Keep going even when you’re surrounded by doubts.
Do you know how many times Elon was told “no”? And do you also know how many people out there despising what he does?
But those don’t stop him from keep going.
Even when he was facing bankruptcy, he did not stop. Let alone coward, negative people telling him that his idea is mad. Believe in yourself. If you think you can make it happen, do it. Don’t let doubt stop you from trying.
Surround yourself with positive people.
Dealing with doubts can be exhausting. So, to make sure you don’t have to deal with them every freaking time, cut ties with sources of doubts.
If you have that one friend who keeps telling you “I’m not sure if you can do it”, CUT. THEM. LOOSE. Because they cannot be a positive influence in your life and you don’t need that on your path to greatness.
Surround yourself with positive people. Befriend smart, enthusiastic people. Work together with like-minded people you cross path with. Elon is not working alone. He surrounds himself with people who can help him achieve his goals.
Have a good support system.
We are human after all. And sometimes, we would reach some of the lowest points of our lives. This is where a good support system comes in handy.
It can be your family, friends, coworkers, anyone you trust the most. Get them behind you and let them be your safety net. Although, we should remind you not to be dependent on them.
Elon’s family, even his ex-wives, have been supportive of his work. His proud mom who is still rocking the fashion industry takes her time to follow his work. And his brother was one of the first people he started his early work with. See that’s the best teamwork.
Stop chasing women.
Oh, boys, we know how your brain works. But little do you know that what you need to chase is a success. Because once you’re there, women will chase you instead of the other way around.
Even though he has two ex-wives, Justine Wilson and Talulah Riley, Elon didn’t spend too much time chasing them. In one of the interviews for his biography, he said he’s not considering having a girlfriend because he simply didn’t have time for them.
So, boys, let the perfect woman comes to you. Don’t chase the same popular fish everyone is aiming for. Be special and you will get your someone special.
We are all guilty of oversleeping especial
