Are You Born To Be A Billionaire?


Today I read about The Youngest Self-Made Billionaire in a newspaper and now the news are all over the internet. Congrats to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, 23, became the youngest ever self-made billionaire. {read about it}. So my question is are we born to be a billionaire? I do not thing so. But we could change that. How? By believing in ourselves and also willing to work hard to see what other people could not see. Some people are saying about luck. But to me, hardwork, dedication and innovative are the essence to be successful and never ever forget the divine help.

Self-made billionaires don’t dominate industries–they transform them and spawn new ones. That takes more than intelligence, courage and luck. It takes divine-like vision. The world’s self-made billionaires certainly have vision in spades, spanning everything from how computers work to how people shop. But the ability to see around corners isn’t the only quality that separates the very accomplished from the stratospherically wealthy.

Another factor is about risk. The way I see it, to become a billionaire you need to take risk. Ask yourselves how much risk you are willing to take? Becoming a billionaire only have 2 routes, that is (a) Success or (b) Failure. There is no middle road about it. So that is the risk, it either you make it or your lose it. So picture yourselves, look into a mirror, and see whether you are born to be a billionaire.

For inspiration, sit back and enjoy this great slides about World’s Richest Billionaires.

    Hello,

    I just came across your blog and thought that your audience would appreciate knowing about http://www.guerillabillionaire.com. Years ago I wrote the popular startup financing manual at http://www.antiventurecapital.com. Now I am launching a labor of love: Guerilla Billionaire™. This is an action plan for pursuing the strategy most commonly used by self-made billionaires to build wealth. The 6 month course is aimed at people with at least basic entrepreneurial skills and acumen as it’s taught at a high level.

    Could I have you add a link to Guerilla Billionaire™?

    Best regards,

    Peter
