How did @elonmusk learn enough about rockets to create and run SpaceX?
– answer from a member of SpaceX founding team!

\\ A Thread by @wise_chimp //
I am going to suggest that he is successful not because his visions are grand, not because he is extraordinarily smart and not because he works incredibly hard.
All of those things are true.
But the one major important distinction that sets him apart is his "inability to consider failure".

It simply is not even in his thought process.
He cannot conceive of failure and that is truly remarkable.

It doesn’t matter if its going up against the banking system (Paypal), going up against the entire aerospace industry (SpaceX) or going up against the US auto industry (Tesla).
He can’t imagine NOT succeeding and that is a very critical trait that leads him ultimately to success.
