It's clear that Elon Musk's success is not a fluke! He is the world's wealthiest person, with a fortune estimated to be around $300 billion.

During the early years of the 2010s, Elon Musk made a courageous decision.

He opted to be paid primarily in Tesla stock options rather than cash.

You must, however, keep in mind that his wealth is entirely virtual.

More than 90% of Elon Musk's wealth is derived from Tesla or SpaceX stock.

It was a way for him to demonstrate his faith in Tesla's future. He was confident that he could make it a huge success.

After a 10-year period, Elon Musk had the first tranche of stock options that he could use in 2012. At a price of $6.24 per share, he received 22.86 million Tesla stock options.

Elon Musk remained patient and worked tirelessly, believing that he could make Tesla explode at any moment.

Tesla stock climbed above $1,000 on the stock market, and he was rewarded in a spectacular fashion.

He has now sold 12.9 million shares of TSLA worth $13.6 billion sold by exercising his stock options so far!

This money was used to buy back Tesla stock options that had been reserved for him since 2012 and that were due to expire in 2022.

From that he has pocketed $6 billion in cash, Elon Musk now owns more Tesla stock than ever before. Isn't it fascinating?

It is possible that some of the $13.6 billion he made selling Tesla shares will be used to pay back the loans and free his collateral TSLA shares

In addition, he will be able to invest his money in projects of his own choosing.

When you believe in yourself more than anyone else and know how to be patient and hardworking, this is what happens.
