Billionaires in the world.

A list of billionaires in the world were published by Forbes and below is the Top Ten.

The Top Ten

1. William Gates
2. Warren Buffett
3. Carlos Slim HelĂș
4. Ingvar Kamprad
5. Lakshmi Mittal
6. Paul Allen
7. Bernard Arnault
8. Prince Alwaleed
9. Kenneth Thomson
10. Li Ka-shing

And this is the links to the full list and as you can see Bill Gates still remains on top with 50 billions. If you are as rich as him, what will you do? Stop Working? Or continue to work? There are times I heard a lot of working class people like me that is in the top millions of the thousandaire list, who says “I will stop working if I got my first million”. There are some who always thought that this billionaire have made it as they are in the right place at the right time.

I believe otherwise. They have great vision; they were the first in their “field”. I believe along the way, they sacrifice a lot, to be where they are now. What spurs them on to continue to strive for more? When I wake up and go to work in the morning, I know that I work to survive. I treat work as business, something for me to get $$$ for my daily expenses. I believe these billionaires wakes up and they know that they are going to do something they love.

I do have a question for the ladies out there. Have you ever look at list like that and set your mind in fishing one of these eligible bachelors? Or if you are more mature will you groom your daughter for the task? In movies I have seen stories plot such as this but in real life, so far I have not really come across one. Are there parents out there who planned such thing, treating their daughters as commodities?
