With a fortune $ 96.5 billion, Bill Gates ranks second among the richest people in the world. Together with his wife, Melinda, she runs the largest charitable association in the world, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Bill Gates is also on the board of Microsoft, a company he founded in 1975 with Paul Allen.
In a speech he has given to high school students in the United States, Bill Gates has highlighted 11 important rules that help you succeed.
Rule no. 1: Life is not right – get used to the idea!
Rule no. 2: Too little people care about your self-esteem. The world expects you to do something before you are satisfied with yourself.
Rule no. 3: You will not earn $ 40,000 a year as you leave the school's banks. You will not be the vice president of any company unless you work for it.
Rule no. 4: If you think your teacher is severe, wait to see when you have a boss!
Rule no. 5: Working in a fast food is not unworthy. Your grandparents had another name for that: they called it a chance.
Rule no. 6: If you put her in the bar, it's not your parents' fault, so do not complain about your mistakes, but learn from them.
Rule no. 7: Before you were born, your parents were not as boring as they were now. They've come to that because they have to pay your expenses, wash your clothes, and listen to you telling them how great you think. So before you start to save the jungle of the parasites of your parents' generation, try to clean your own closet.
Rule no. 8: Maybe your school has escaped victors and losers, but life does not. In some schools, they have abolished the corrigenda and the student can try as many times as he wants to give the correct answer to a question. That does not resemble, at all, with nothing in real life.
Rule no. 9: Life is not divided in semesters. You do not have free summers and very few employers are interested in helping you "find yourself". You do that in your spare time.
Rule no. 10: What you see on TV is not real life. In real life, people even have to leave the cafes and go to work.
Rule no. 11: Be nice to nerds. There is a chance in the future to work for any of them
