Elon Musk (Learn from him. Take the risk)

Part of achieving your goals has to do with risk-taking. So for that topic, our example for today is Elon Musk.

Elon Musk was born in South Africa and his father was an engineer. 
At 10, the introverted boy developed a deep interest in computers.
Things at school weren't going well for him as he was constantly bullied. 
One day, the bullies threw him down the stairs and beat him until he blacked out.

After 2 days of admission in PhD at Stanford, he dropped out of university just to try out his luck with the idea he had. But later, he ended up getting kicked from the company he created himself (PayPal).

At that time, he started reading books to learn how to build rockets. While on his trip to Russia to buy a rocket to send to Mars, he realized that rockets were artificially overpriced. So, he decided to start a company "SpaceX" to build his rockets with his own money.

In the meantime, he founded an electric car company called TESLA.
Unfortunately, his first 3 rocket launches failed and exploded causing a loss of millions.

Both his companies SpaceX and Tesla were running out of cash. But that didn't stop him. The project that was so close to his heart barely escaped bankruptcy, when his 4th launch finally succeeded. Hours before Tesla was about to close down, he received a big investment.

Today Elon Musk is one of the richest Tech Billionaires with a net worth of more than 20 Billion. Elon's story teaches us that, when something is important enough you do it even if the odds are not in your favour.
Take that Risk!
