Risk or Failures
Once you decide to do something extraordinary then be prepared to face the same level challenges in life. Life is not bed of roses. By the time Elon Musk developed into a tough personality. Failure and success story run side by side. One has to build friendship with failure. Be sure, when one is not facing failure, it means not doing anything. Exploring new track and showing the people new track is the real match and a role to play. Then you can do something which people can just think or dream. It comes when you can think a little above yourself. If you are stuck with 5-6 feet world then story is different. 28JUN1971 was day when Elon was born in South Africa. In the age of 11 years, he studied many encyclopedias. With self supporting odd jobs, he completed his education in Canada and USA. He was a man with entrepreneurship. With the help of his brother he started his own internet company Zip 2 when he failed to get job in Netscape internet company. This was financial crises time for Elon. His father invested $28,000. He developed online city guide for newspaper publishers and media companies. This was a new concept. It caused the addition of Board of Directors and funds. In 4 years at the age of 28, Elon was removed from his Zip 2 company due to his too young age by the aged Board of Directors and he got 7% ($22 million). Right away he started x.com providing online financial services and handling email payments. After one year x.com was merged with Confinity and PayPal (online money transfer) was emerged. Elon was removed as CEO in Oct 2000. He got his 11.7% share as $165 million. He started green house in 2001. He tried to buy refurbished intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) from Moscow. On failure he planned to develop affordable rocket with some investment. According to his calculation the material cost was only 3% and with others expenses addition one can save 70%. He developed a team and started work on rocket science (SpaceX). In 2004, he started funding in Tesla (low cost electric vehicle). In 2006, 2007 and 2008, SpaceX launched its first, second and 3rd rocket, all failed. Tesla production was also delaying (with $70 million investment). By the time he became father of 5 children. He got divorce from his family. It means he faced 100% in and out crises. In Sep 2008, SpaceX tried its 4th rocket with almost no breath situation. It was successful try and now SpaceX was #1 in private rocket technology. NASA signed $1.8 Billion contract with SpaceX. Until 2022 SpaceX has plan to send 2 cargo missions on Mars. Now Tesla is also on growth. He is #25 in the list of world's most influential personalities. This a man who started his life with night fear and he was expelled from school due to impaired listening. It needs more courage to live than to kill self and people around. Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live. Being silent about how you feel or what you feel is emotional suicide. Silence your ego and give your soul a voice. It will make you feel better.

Dil ki azadi shahanshahi, shikam samaan e maut
Faisala tera teray hathon mein hai, dil ya shikam
Free heart lends kingly state, to belly death is due:
Decide which of the two is better in your view.
