So how does he do it? Does Elon Musk have some kind of superpower? Does he know something you don't? Is it possible for someone like you to make the kind of waves in history that this South African-born entrepreneur did? Actually, yes. There is no special potion to conjure, no magic spell to recite, no rare crystal one must attain to follow in Musk's footsteps. All it really takes is determination, dedication to a goal, and recognizing and accepting personal limitations. As Elon Musk says: "When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor."
