9 Powerful Elon Musk Quotes

In this post I combined 9 of the most powerful Elon Musk quotes that will fire you up, so you can take massive action in your business.

I actually have not heard of Elon Musk a lot until 1 or 2 years ago when his company Tesla started to make some big moves. That is pretty funny because he used to be the owner of a very well-known payment system PayPal.

Now he owns several companies, including SpaceX, Tesla and SolarCity.

Some of his goals include reducing global warming and reducing the “risk of human extinction” by setting a human colony on Mars.

You can tell that Elon Musk has some pretty crazy goals, but when you listen to him you become convinced just like he is. Mind blowing.

So here are the 9 very powerful Elon Musk quotes to help you with motivation to keep going in your business and achieving the goals you strive for.

  5. This Quote Right here speaks to me: When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor…WHY Because most real entrepreneurs start out with every odd against their success. When I started blogging I literally had everyone ignore me apart from my family! we gotta push until something happens.
