Amazing Life Lessons from Elon Musk

Elon Musk's life is awesomely action-packed. A glimpse of a few events gives us the inspiration to grow in our lives and instills trust in our entrepreneurial abilities to start our own startups. As we know, SpaceX and Tesla are part of Musk's vision for a better world; he remains humble given his many achievements and his impact on our future.

Childhood trauma has made him strong.

Musk was heavily bullied during his childhood and once hospitalized after a group of boys pushed him down the stairs and beat him until he became unconscious. Whatever the social difficulties, Musk has always focused on imbibing as much knowledge as possible and creating ideas to change the world as possible. He hadn't let him be discouraged by haters and cynics. A great lesson for the younger generation because.....

According to a report published in the Journal of Pediatrics, 2018 titled Prevalence and treatment of depression, anxiety, and behavioral problems in children in the United States.

  •  Anxiety was diagnosed in 7.1 percent of children aged 3-17 (approximately 4.4 million). 
  • 3.2 percent (approximately 1.9 million) of children aged 3-17 years are diagnosed with depression. 
  • About 3 out of 4 children aged 3-17 with depression also have anxiety (73.8%), and nearly 1 out of 2 have behavioral problems (47.2%).

Elon also found great comfort and escape in the form of computers and business. So, the ability of Elon to overcome relentless and cruel bullying is a source of motivation.

He is a leading figure in the modern space travel and exploration industry, CEO, and SpaceX founder. He co-founded PayPal and transformed the money transfer industry around the globe. So, Elon here teaches us the lesson of having a transformative and powerful vision.

Elon understands he may be smart, but the collective effort and great teamwork can yield results he couldn't have achieved independently. He ver forgets to give credit to his team. Although, he fires employees over minor errors. In fact, he'll never agree that anything is impossible. We learn from this that you should be surrounded by the people who share your vision and who are just as dedicated to it as you are.

PayPal has changed the financial industry by digitizing money transfers and making sending and receiving money online convenient for people worldwide. His SpaceX program is endearingly affecting space travel. He wants to make it possible to go commercial space travel. Elon Musk is inspiring many through his accomplishments.

Elon Musk is still on the lookout for criticism. When he spoke with the automotive engineers during the Tesla electric car development, he asked them to tell him what was wrong with his design, rather than what was good about it. He learned his errors in this way and corrected them. Musk says he is constantly trying to make himself better. We should always look for and learn from productive criticism. However, we must develop the ability to find out the difference between destructive criticism and productive criticism. Very few people out there are available to give you productive criticism, and many are ready to bang you with destructive criticism.

He's regarded as the world's most forward-looking person. The unifying vision of putting a man on Mars is the overarching vision that propels all of his enterprises to pursue excellence and history. Elon Musk is truly a pioneer in the technology world. We, too, can become pioneers in our own fields by following his lessons of success. Let's pursue our untamed dreams.

Don't get trapped in political games. He never leaned toward a single political party but rather donated to all major political parties' election campaigns since political competition is much worse than competition between businesses.




Elon Musk spurs the concept of Bhagavad Gita like many other successful billionaires and entrepreneurs. Once at a technology conference, Musk shocked the world by saying that he thought the chances were daunting that we lived inside a computer simulation. In other words, we might all be virtual playthings within a cosmic computer game....a contextual clue that is relatable to the essence of Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads, and Advaita Vedanta. Musk never fears a challenge. Even in the face of distress, he shows a great ability to improvise. Keep this in mind the next time you reach a dead end.
