Kick Butt Tip: If Something is Important Enough, DO IT!

Today’s Kick Butt Tip of the Day comes from the wealthiest man on the entire planet Earth. Of course that would be Elon Musk. “If something is important enough, even if the odds are stacked against you, you should still do it.”
History has recorded thousands of success stories from people who were at one time told they were stupid or that they didn’t possess the learning capacity in order to be successful. How sad.
For instance, did you know that inventor Thomas Edison was kicked out of school? Hard to believe right? But true. Edison was told that he was unteachable. A big thank you to Thomas Edison for not listening to his naysayers and going on to invent the light bulb.
I would guess that most people around the world would associate the name Elon Musk with the car company Tesla. Musk invested in the electric car producer Tesla over 20 years ago. Since that time, he has gone on to start SpaceX and most recently purchased Twitter and then rebranded the company as X. Today he is worth over 200 billion dollars and some experts estimate that he may become the first trillionaire.
One of my favorite success stories is about a very popular delivery company. White attending college, Fred Smith outlined what he thought would be a great business idea for a package delivery company. Can you believe his instructor gave him a grade of C for his idea? That idea later became FedEx and today is one of the most successful package delivery businesses ever. So, the next time you see a FedEX truck, I hope you will remember this story and let it inspire you in some way.
Please remember two things. God don’t make no junk and yes, you are awesome! Now, get out there and be awesome!
