There is nothing more inspirational, to me, than when someone becomes rich by bettering the world. Elon Musk, founder of Tesla, was born in Pretoria, South in 1971. He moved to The U.S.A. to study and has been here ever since.
He speaks of Tesla as being proof that electric cars can look good too.
Here are 10 inspirational quotes from Mr. Musk:
1.’When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favour.’
2. ‘You get paid in direct proportion to the difficulty of problems you solve.’
3. ‘I'm not trying to be anyone's savior. I'm just trying to think about the future and not be sad.’
4. ‘It is possible for ordinary people to choose to be extraordinary.’
5. ‘When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor.’
6. ‘Any product that needs a manual to work is broken.’
7. ‘Life is too short for long-term grudges.’
8.’ Patience is a virtue, and I’m learning patience. It’s a tough lesson.’
9. ‘Persistence is very important. You should not give up unless you are forced to give up.’
10. ‘It’s OK to have your eggs in one basket as long as you control what happens to that basket.’
