While it's great to look up to people like Elon Musk, it's important to remember that in addition to natural intelligence and hard work there was also a strong element of being in the right place at the right time that resulted in his and others' extreme success.

You have to be more specific with your goals before anyone can really help you. If you don't have anything specific yet, just continue to explore.

Agreed. Remember, I don't believe Elon Musk got rich from his physics degree. The market needed something like PayPal and he happened to be in a position to provide that.

Develop leadership among your peers and stand out to your professors (in a positive manner).

Students with good grades are abound everywhere. Special people aren't.
