I’m in Portofino at the moment and I took that yacht picture during my morning run.
There are a lot of superyachts around here, but you can’t help taking a moment to consider the ones with helicopters on board. Owning a helicopter is one thing, but owning a helicopter that sits on your yacht is a very clear indication of a billionaire.
And what a trek it must be to become a billionaire. With no clear blueprint available, there must be some common traits they share, that enabled them to get to that point.
There are thousands of books on millionaire thinking. The knowledge they offer isn’t enough to get you to the highest ranks of wealth. The richest people of our times are billionaires. Only 1 in 5 million world citizens belongs to this group. Billionaires are extremely rare, and their mindset differs hugely from that of ordinary millionaires.
“The Billion Dollar Secret” offers firsthand knowledge of billionaire entrepreneurs told in their own words. Never before has someone interviewed 20+ self-made billionaires across the world for a book project. The author worked for years with some of the very best entrepreneurs on the planet and distilled their secrets into 20 mental principles that enabled them to start from zero and create billions of dollars in value during one life span. This book gives you the road map to follow their path to extreme wealth and success. This book is recommended by billionaires.
I like that end bit. – “This book is recommended by billionaires”. You could use that to sell anything.
‘Billionaires eat these apples.’
‘Toilet paper, as used by billionaires.’
So anyway, I haven’t read the book, but BusinessInsider published six habits that the author claims are shared by all the billionaires he interviewed. I thought I’d see if I share any of these habits.
Here they are:
Great – so we’re all on track. You can read the details of each of those points in the original article here.
I think another habit should be ‘goal setting’.
And on that note, let’s aim for this little beauty as a starting point.
It might seem small but just look inside. It doesn’t have a chopper but it’s a steal at R50 million!
Charter that thing and it might come close to washing its face.
