21. Elon Musk
Growing up, Musk was often bullied by his classmates. Troubled and lonely, he chose to shove himself into books, and by the age of 12, he had already built his first video game – Blastar.
Known to have a work ethic similar to that of a machine, he puts an obscene amount of hours to his work every single day. He believes, “I think it is possible for ordinary people to choose to be extraordinary.”
Once a shy teenager, Elon is heading some of the most innovative organizations in the world today, like SpaceX, Tesla, Hyperloop, and SolarCity. Hard work and Knowledge building are the key to becoming extraordinary.
