Elon Musk said:

“When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favour.”

Although it is a nice thing to say, how practical is it? Elon Musk is one of the most successful people on this planet, so of course, there is some truth to what he is saying. He would not be in his position if he did not act upon the statement he said above.

However, for some of us, our goals and ambitions often seem out of our reach. And it is hard to imagine that someone like Elon Musk felt the same way we do. He was once someone with dreams who also had doubters and his own challenges to face.

We are not all destined to be Elon Musk or any other billionaire on this planet. Yet still, we can all get what we want out of life if we pursue our ambitions wholeheartedly.

We will face many challenges and doubters that throw us off our path. In many cases, they will succeed for a short while. In some cases, they can succeed for years.

It took me ten years to consider writing again after being discouraged by my parents. And it took me three years to start writing my first book after feeling doubt that I did not know enough.
