Have you ever wondered what the life of a living genius is like?

Well, if you did, then let me share with you a story about the CEO and CTO of SpaceX CEO, chief product architect of Tesla Motors, chairman of SolarCity, and co-founder of PayPal.

Besides that, Musk is also involved in developing a high-speed transportation system known as Hyperloop.

Well, he seems to have quite some titles.

But the titles don’t mean anything to a person like Elon Musk, since he’s constantly searching for ways to invest in projects that can change the world that we’re living in.

Besides being an entrepreneur he is also an inventor, innovator and engineer.

He personally participates in designing of electric cars and spaceships.

That’s quite the firepower he’s got in his portfolio.

At the age of 12 years old he achieved some money by selling a computer game he made himself, the name of the game is Blastar, similar to Space Invaders.

How can a person be so ingenious?

Every genius has some key episodes in their life that led to their massive success.

In Musk’s case there were two such episodes:

  1. At 17 years old he made the decision of immigrating to United States without the support of his family.
  2. When he was struggling with adolescent depression, he began to actively absorb philosophical and religious literature. He also once stated that the most valuable lessons, he eventually learned from Douglas Adams’ book The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

So, what’s the secret to all of his actions?

Well, you can find that out by just watching this interview of his life motivations and others:

But, to sum it up… it’s an insanely strong “WHY?”.

That’s the answer of his achievements.

He either found something that hurt him in this life and he wanted to change that thing or  he had the feeling that something was missing out there and he wasn’t the person to sit around and wait for someone to make it happen.

There’s so many things to talk with Elon Musk as a subject but I hope that this is enough to make you interested in the life of a living legend.
