One of the recent Alpha Leaders I know, is Elon Musk, although in history we have many. If you wish to create an impact during your life journey, you ought to understand his behaviours, thoughts and habits.
Here, we wish to share with you, how we learned about him and what we can gain from a better understanding of such an Alpha Leader.
Here is the YouTube which inspire us to create this blog post to share with you.
Have The Determination To Do What You Want To Accomplish
Since young, Elon Musk wanted to create something and he has the determination to do what he wish to accomplish. You can hear that, he know USA has the newest technologies and he wanted to move to the country.
He asked for it, from his mother and eventually he moved there. And that start his dream journey which he wanted to. You too can achieve what you wants, so long that you think hard on what you wish to do, and have a plan to achieve it.
Have A Keen Interest In Acquiring New Knowledge and Skill
Elon Musk went to Stanford University to work on issue related to cars, and that is his plan to acquire the skill and knowledge he wants, in order to accomplish his goals. You too, can do the same. How? By thinking what you are lacking and what knowledge and skill you need, so that you can master all the important skill set you need.
Have a plan and work towards it.
Elon Musk really has a plan and his plan are aimed towards his target in the future. By working for the only internet company – Netscape during that time, he knows that is the way to learn about Internet and surround himself with all the related stuffs.
You need to do the same. If you wish to be an SEO expert, then you need to occupy yourself all the times with SEO book, skills, video, webinar, all the related topics. That is the way to go and master all the SEO skill sets.
Learned From Mistakes and Get Feedback
When he started his first company PayPal, initially the company did not do well but he learned what went wrong and get feedback from his customers. That is how he grows his company.
This is so important. We can pick up the lesson from here, know what went wrong with our plan and get feedback from others, what we can do better and do the necessary adjustment and work towards our goals.
You too can succeed, by following this simple method Elon Musk used.
Think About The Future And Do Good For Others
He thinks about the future of our planet and want to help us to have a better life on earth. So, he plans for the sustainable energy resources. That is the way to go.
If you have the heart to do good for others and provide a solution which other need, you are going to be appreciated by others. More people are going to come to you, and help you to succeed.
Therefore, think what kind of services and solution you can provide, which will help others. You will get your reward.
Working Super Hard Than Others
If you want to succeed in certain area, you need to work towards it. There is no way you can become better than others, if you know less than other people. So, how do you go about it? You will need to work extra hard to learn many things, thing which other people do not know, only you know.
That is the way to differentiate you and make you a better person than others. This is the only way people will look towards you and you become the leader of others.
Of course, you must take care of your health and mental, do not over stress yourself if you are unable to handle it. Remember, to take break and rest if you find yourself overboard.
Do Not Be Afraid Of Failure
Elon Musk mentioned that he too encountered many failures, but he continues to work towards his goals. Never, never, never fear about the failure. Any fail that you encounter will provide you a lesson to learn from. Take it easy and do better the next time.
If you wish to create a blog, go and create one. If your first blog do not succeed, never mind. Learn from it and make your second one better.
If you wish to set up a company and create a business to serve others, start now. Do not wait till you are too old to do it. Start one and create something. Do not fear the failure. Do it today.
Have A Strong Mindset
He see failures as something which will happen. Importantly, is your win must be more than your failures. He looks at the net outcome. If the end you have more win than failure, you will have a positive net output.
This is the mindset that you need to have. With this, you will not see failure as end of the world, but you see yourself going to get another win the next round. This is the strong mindset that winner have in their mind, and this is how they succeed eventually.
Have A Strong Pain Tolerance
Starting a business is really hard. Get prepared to go through all the pains.
It is just like when you start a new blog, you feel excited about and when you finished your setup and the website up and running, you feel good and achieve something.
However, business and blogging is the same. You will go through a period of up and down, and at some point in times, your blogging business may face difficulty and you may have some issues with technical breakdown, your website has no traffic and you lose a lot of revenue.
You struggle to keep your blogging business up and you are the webmaster of your blog. How to get it up and running again? These are all the issues many CEO of a company will face. You need to get prepare. Learn what works and steer your website to a success.
Every business is the same, it goes the same for your online business. You are the founder of your business online. How you going to make your business a success on the internet, is the same as how you as a CEO of a company steer your business to new height.
Treat your online business as your real business and you will succeed.
We hope that you understand why Elon Musk has achieved so much. His attitude, mindset, thoughts and habits are all the important factors that make him what he is today.
There is a reason for a person to be the Alpha Leader and he has all the qualities of this kind of leader.
Every person is born differently. You do not need to be like him, but be yourself and create one of your own Alpha Leader you think fit. That is life all about.
Have fun and enjoy what you are doing.
