This Is Why 

Elon Musk is  Better Than Us

Not Your Average Guy

Elon Musk is a founder quite like no other.   From PayPal to Tesla and SpaceX, his accomplishments are varied and innovative. 

 But what makes him different? Here are 5 traits.

Competitive Streak

His ex-wife has stated that apart from possessing uncanny intelligence, Musk has a competitive streak.  He wants to go further and get there faster, whatever he sets out to do. 

Laser-Sharp Focus

Intelligence is nothing without focus, something he has in abundance.  He commits 100% to his business - even sleeping under his desk at Tesla to fix malfunctioning robots at night. 

No Is Not In His Dictionary

Musk will not take no for an answer. If he sets his mind to it, he will not rest till he achieves what he sets out to do.  This determination is what makes him successful. 

Fuelled By Passion

You can’t put in the kind of hours and commitment he does if you’re not passionate about what you are doing.  This is another defining feature of his personality. 


Flowing from his focus and passion for his work,  Musk also has an underlying intensity that’s both healthy and constructive, helping him maintain the “flow state” in his work.
