THE THOUGHTS OF BILLIONAIRES from Mittal to Gates

CONCEPT OF REALITY
‘‘Life is not fair: Get used to it
The world won’t care about your self esteem
The world will expect you to accomplish something
Before you feel good about yourself
If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a Boss

Your school might have done away with Winners and Losers, but Life HAS NOT
In some schools failing grade has been abolished and they will give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to anything in Life’’.

Bill Gates (Founder of Microsoft, perennial N°1 on world’s richest list)

COMING THROUGH
‘‘Everyone experiences tough times; it is a measure of your determination and dedication on how you deal with them and how you can come through them’’.
Lakshmi Mittal (CEO, Arcelor Mitta, the world’s Largest Steel Coy.)

ON MONEY
‘‘I don’t have a problem with guilt about money, the way I see it is that my money represents an enormous number of claim check on society. It’s like I have these little pieces of paper that I can turn into consumption’’. Warren Buffet (The World’s N°1 Investor)

ON FOCUS
‘‘It is tough to be productive when there is a swamp full of superfluous man-made issues to wade through each day’’.

Ingvar Kamprad (Founder of Ikea)

SO YOU FAILED:
‘‘So you failed and now you are buried in grief
Success has evaded you just like a thief
But there are much gloomier horrors and more
If you do not wake up and take count of your store
You are alive! That is good news, and the future is untouched.
So now it is time to reflect and catch up
Don’t waste this great day with bad thoughts and regrets
Just count off the blessing and good times you have met
Your life can be salvaged, your ego made new
There will be more opportunities and choices for you
Face up to it friend, you are not finished yet
Beneath all your hurts, there is still something left
Stand erect, head held high, get ready to move
Success has just tried you, you have something to prove
You are made of stern stuff, much stronger than steel
You will win in the end, with your faith and your will’’

Peter J. Daniels (Australian Real Estate Billionaire)
