MAIN LESSONS FROM THE BOOK 
Throughout this book, we have related our hard-earned experience through advice and stories. We endeavored to be specific to the challenge, whether it’s with time management or workplace bullies. After all, it’s usually best to tailor the advice to the situation! Still, there are a few principles that you can carry with you throughout your career. 
KNOW YOURSELF AND BE TRUE TO YOURSELF 
In order to choose your path, you need to know yourself— your strengths, values, and goals. What you are good at or have a natural talent for can inform you of which careers you are most likely to succeed in. Your values are the kinds of causes and people you want to work for and which practice you prefer. And your goals—those are your dreams, where you want to be in the future. Once you are certain of these things, the way forward will become clearer. 
For some people, this self-awareness comes easily, but others have to work hard for self-discovery. Even if you think you know yourself, it helps to ask yourself questions. Finding out how you best communicate, which environments enable you to be most efficient, and which leadership styles you work best under will help you find your place in the workforce. 
A lot of this is learned through trial and error, and that’s okay! Life is a journey of learning, and you discover more and more about yourself along the way.

    Elon Musk - Tesla SpaceX and the...

    In the spirit of Steve Jobs and Moneyball, Elon Musk is both an illuminating and authorized look at the extraordinary life of one of Silicon Valley’s most exciting, unpredictable, and ambitious entrepreneurs—a real-life Tony Stark—and a fascinating exploration of the renewal of American invention and its new “makers.” 
    Elon Musk spotlights the technology and vision of Elon Musk, the renowned entrepreneur and innovator behind SpaceX, Tesla, and SolarCity, who sold one of his Internet companies, PayPal, for $1.5 billion. Ashlee Vance captures the full spectacle and arc of the genius’s life and work, from his tumultuous upbringing in South Africa and flight to the United States to his dramatic technical innovations and entrepreneurial pursuits. 
    Vance uses Musk’s story to explore one of the pressing questions of our age: can the nation of inventors and creators who led the modern world for a century still compete in an age of fierce global competition? He argues that Musk—one of the most unusual and striking figures in American business history—is a contemporary, visionary amalgam of legendary inventors and industrialists including Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, and Steve Jobs. More than any other entrepreneur today, Musk has dedicated his energies and his own vast fortune to inventing a future that is as rich and far-reaching as the visionaries of the golden age of science-fiction fantasy. 
    Thorough and insightful, Elon Musk brings to life a technology industry that is rapidly and dramatically changing by examining the life of one of its most powerful and influential titans.

    Awaken Your Inner True Power!
     
    Dare to achieve more? Dare to dream big? Dare to defy life?
     
    We are all born with natural talent and unique abilities to accomplish the most amazing things in our lives and to contribute immensely to the world around us. Now while some of our greatest innate strengths are obvious to us, there are our other gifted qualities below the surface which we are totally oblivious of.
     
    What is important is to discover these “hidden potentials” then cultivate them for our personal goals and ambitions - whether that is to figure out your career path, to find your passion, or simply to be a better person, or maybe it’s even because you feel stuck with where you are in life or unsatisfied with where you are headed and want to change.
     
    Regardless, there is no better opportunity to let your full potential shine through when “personal desire” requires you to. When that does occur, the only thing holding you back is YOURSELF - for reasons due to lack of confidence to accomplish greatness, lack of sheer willpower to do more, or lack of knowledge on how to do so.
     
    Whatever the case may be, “Potentials Unlocked” will help you dive in and awaken your sleeping giant within to be able to...
     
    * Achieve success faster by tweaking how you usually perform.
     
    * Improve upon your strengths further and patch up existing problems.
     
    * Create greater impacts on other’s lives by what you already do every day.
     
    * Reach new height thresholds by pushing yourself out of your comfort zone.
     
    * Live every day like a true maverick blazing the trail for the world to follow suit.
     
    * And more to uncover!
     
    If you want to upgrade and unleash your true self, then it’s time now to unlock your potentials that have been forever laid dormant and reap newfound rewards.
