Many of us are hungry for success.  

Some of us have read texts that provide tips on how to be successful. Others have connected with successful people, who were able to provide key insight.  

However, there is still more that we can learn. 

Once, many assumed that becoming a millionaire would take a lifetime. Over the years, millionaires became multi-millionaires. Today, the focus has shifted significantly to becoming a billionaire. 

According to Forbes magazine, there are 2,153 billionaires in the world.  

Many of these successful people have benefited from smart business decisions, life lessons and sound advice. 

We’re sharing advice from a few well-known billionaires that will inspire you to keep pushing! 

Oprah Winfrey 

Networth: 2.6 billion 

Industry and Company: Entertainment, OWN 

Power Quote: “Seize the opportunity. For me, luck is preparation meeting that moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. The truth for me and every single person is that everything that has happened in your life, is preparing you for the moment that is to come.”  

Reminder: Opportunity knocks when you least expect it, so always be prepared. 

Jeff Bezos 

Networth: 131 billion 

Industry and Company: E-Commerce, Amazon. 

Power Quote: “If you want to be an entrepreneur, be customer obsessed. Don’t satisfy your customers, figure out how to absolutely delight them. That is the number one thing. You’ve also got to have some passion for the arena that you are going to work in. Otherwise you are going to be competing against people who have passion for that, and they’re going to build better products and services.” 

Reminder: Be passionate about what you want to do and work to make it a reality. 

Sean “Jay Z” Carter 

Networth: 1 billion 

Industries and Company: Entertainment, Art, Real Estate, Tidal. 

Power Quote: “Do things that are true to you. Most of the things that I’m involved with are creative and things that I like. Get involved with things that you love and be sure to have a standard and integrity with what you’re doing.” 

Reminder: Love what you do and do it with integrity!

Networth: 16.8 billion 

Industry and Company: Beverage, Heineken. 

Power Quote: “For us, as a family, we realised that we can do more for our company as owners than as managers. We have to know the business and be involved. We have to make decisions about the people who will be running it because this is crucial.” 

Reminder: Know what your strengths are, be involved and hire the best people for the job. 

Jack Ma

Networth: 37.3 billion 

Industry and Company: E-Commerce, Alibaba Group.
