How to bounce back from failure?

You may not believe this, but Elon Musk is just like us. He is a person made out of flesh and blood. He has feelings, emotions and moods. Now, what makes him successful? To put it simply, he overcomes obstacles and he stays committed to his goals. He sets clear goals and meets them every time. 

He always finds a way to boost his self-confidence so that he can turn every failure into success. He does what is necessary to stay focused so that he can continue to amaze the world and perhaps even himself. Left or right, he keeps going strong. Therefore, he is the epitome of true persistence and stamina.  

Mental challenges, such as risks, setbacks, failure, hate and people who underestimate you, will always continue to exist. The bigger the game you play, the bigger these barriers will become. But at the end of the day, the result is what matters most. And the result can be seen for itself. 

Personally, I do not worry about what other people think of my actions, but it boosts me when they are taken aback by the results I achieve. To sum up, I advise you to stop letting other people’s opinions guide your life. Had it not been for the people that underestimate you, you would not get motivated every day when you wake up.  

 

Do you want to play a bigger game?

When we are discussing successful people like Elon Musk, I think it is important to look at them and ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Which role are they playing that I am not?
  2. What can I learn from them? 
  3. How can I adapt my ‘mental stance’ to fit theirs? 
  4. Will this have a positive influence on my results?

Powerful results do not need explanation.

Anything you ever wanted
within reason,
you either have it, or you weren't willing to do what was required to get it.
