Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and The Secrets To Success

Written by Joe Cohen, BS | Last updated:

Did you ever think about what makes the top entrepreneurs such as Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and others hyper-successful?

I’ve researched these and other top entrepreneurs thoroughly, and my conclusion is that very little of their success has to do with luck.

Building Amazon and Tesla involved intense competition at all times of their development, and there’s still fierce competition that will continue well into the future.

Tesla is still competing against every huge automaker and many new entrants. Amazon still has to compete against Walmart, Costco, and Target.

These super stars did not get there through manifesting, positive thinking, and self-help books. The most elite performers actually don’t practice or read any of these things.

They didn’t buy an internet course advertised on Facebook on the 3 step formula for success, or hire an online mentor to guide them through the process.

There were 3 things that allowed them to become hyper-successful.

In the next few days, we will go through the three factors and show you how to increase your odds of success.

The first secret to success might be surprising and obvious at the same time:

Stress resilience.

There’s a saying that the more money or possessions you have, the more worries you have.

The higher up on the success ladder you reach, the more you need to cope with all the worries and stress that come with it.

One thing that’s clear about the titans of tech is that they are mentally prepared for everything. By being robust and resilient, they are able to put themselves through a lot of mental, and some physical, stressors and bounce back very quickly.

Elon Musk is a typical example of someone who is put through many mental stressors, but he is able to handle them extremely well compared to the level of stress he’s put in.

Most people would crack within a few hours, and he’s been able to sustain the high level of stress for decades.

In addition, it’s well researched that working memory, focus, processing speed and other aspects of intelligence are tightly linked to mood and general health as well.

In fact, studies show that reaction time is the single best predictor of lifespan – because your brain often is just a mirror for how well your body is working.

Working memory, focus and processing speed are really important in being successful, and these are severely hampered by stress, trauma, anxiety or depression.

But the important thing to consider is that mental resilience can be optimized by everyone.

There’s a quick and easy way for you to do that, and it all starts with your genes.

Start Hacking Your Genes Today

There are plenty of genes that can help you strengthen your mental resilience.

For example, the OXTR gene codes for oxytocin receptors and affects the sensitivity of the amygdala, your “threat detector.”

The negative gene variant strengthens the amygdala, making it more sensitive to smaller threats, therefore increasing stress on even miniscule things.

If you understand what genetic variant you carry, you can implement lifestyle changes that will counteract these negative effects and actually help you deal with stress better!

Now imagine looking at all your genes related to stress, and changing your lifestyle to counteract the bad variants and boost the good variants. Your mental resilience will be through the roof!

This is what I mean by hacking your genes for success. All the information you need is within you, all you need to do is use it.
