Elon Musk's Ex-Wife Has The Perfect Answer On How To Become A Billionaire

The United States is the nucleus of capitalism; it's driven by entrepreneurship. Accordingly, Americans love a good success story.

When seemingly ordinary people catapult themselves to wealth and glory, it validates the American Dream -- the notion that anyone, no matter where he or she is from, can work hard enough to make it to the top.

Correspondingly, the other day, someone posted this question to Quora:

Justine Musk, the ex-wife of billionaire Elon Musk, took it upon herself to reply. Her impeccable response is the top answer and has received over 14,000 upvotes.

Success begins with asking the right questions.

Success is part determination and part luck. The bitter truth is hard work can lead to nowhere.

Don't think about what you want, think about what the world needs, and strive to fill that gap. Success is a game of inches.

The world doesn't owe you anything. You get what you give.
