Billionaires’ Words of Wisdom
Learn From Billionaires The Common Golden Advice On Success
Billionaires these days come in various ages and sizes. You read about them regularly and follow their stories and wish you could be like them. “In your dreams,” you might tell yourself, but anyone who is dead set to achieve what these wealthy people have has nothing else to do but to learn from their wisdom and go for it. We’ve gathered five simple insights billionaires believe to be crucial in finding success in your endeavors. These success hacks can help you adopt a billionaire’s frame of mind in your pursuit of financial freedom and happiness.
The reward lies in the quality of life that they have achieved for themselves and their family.
Real success does not happen overnight.
The real and long-time billionaires have built their wealth because they have spent their life dedicated to fulfilling their dreams, with stumbles and hiccups along the way. There are those who found themselves instant millionaires, but they lost their money fast enough that they may still be reeling from the blow. Success takes time. Patience is indeed one important virtue that you should have combined with the strong drive to keep on working, building, improving, and sharing what you have to stay on top of the game.
The formula for success: rise early, work hard, strike oil.” – J. Paul Getty
Money has never been the motivator.
It may come as a surprise to know that successful billionaires have never been motivated by money. Money is just the bonus that they get for chasing after their vision and goals in life. The reward lies in the quality of life that they have achieved for themselves and their family. It also lies in the knowledge that they have helped people build their own dreams and on the difference that they’ve made on society, and all because they have built something great.
After a certain point, money is meaningless. It ceases to be a goal. The game is what counts.” – Aristotle Onassis
Find something you’re passionate about.
They may give in to luxuries and pleasures from time to time (because after all, they have money to burn), but the thrill of the experience soon fades. And because they can’t find real happiness from the trappings of wealth, they seek the things that can give them a sense of achievement and fulfillment. Is it to help a great cause that they strongly support or do something that they’ve always dreamed of? Whatever feeds their hunger, billionaires derive immense enjoyment from pursuing their passions in life. More often than not, they give away their time and money to charities and causes because helping others gives them a sense of purpose and meaning.
Whether you’ve found your calling, or if you’re still searching, passion should be the fire that drives your life’s work.” – Michael Dell
Unwavering self-belief, persistence, and determination will get you through tough times.
Billionaires have met and overcome challenges more than anyone else. They emerged victorious because they choose their battles and know the rules of engagement. They listen to others and learn from success and failure stories of others, and they know how to take these insights and apply them to their situation. They believe in their self more than anybody else, not because it is born out of arrogance, but because they know how to downplay their weaknesses and capitalize on their strengths. When the going gets tough, they become even more driven to ride the rough patch and don’t stop until they are satisfied with the results. They have faith in themselves on the people that they trust, and no matter how bleak their predicament seems to be, they never lose sight of what they want and how to get it.
If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.” – Henry Ford
Beware of alienation.
Some billionaires who live in exclusive neighborhoods where the areas are gated or travel in their own aircraft realize that they become separated from the real, ordinary world. They tend to move in their own wealthy circles that they at times are not able to touch base with people who are not as rich as they are, so to speak. Once you become highly successful and incredibly wealthy, you have to find ways to interact with the rest of the pack to stay grounded and allow you to be closer to what goes on in the day-to-day community and the situation of the average person.
Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” – Steve Jobs
If you want to become wealthy, keep an open mind and take the advice of the experts. Remember that your motivation should not be to earn your millions or billions, but rather, it should be to succeed in reaching your dream of doing something great and fulfilling your passions through faith in yourself and perseverance. Then, and only then will wealth start coming in.
