What Does It Mean to Be a Billionaire?

A billionaire is a person with assets or a net worth of at least one billion currency units in their native currency, such as dollars, euros, or pounds. Billionaires are people who are extremely affluent and own a wide range of assets, including cash and financial equivalents, real estate, and business and personal property. In 1987, Forbes began compiling a list of the world’s wealthiest people.

Billionaires: An Introduction

A billionaire is a person with a net worth of one billion dollars ($1,000,000,000, or a nine-digit figure). This is worth 1,000 times a millionaire’s fortune ($1,000,000). In other countries, billionaires are measured in monetary units like euros, pounds, and other currencies. A eurozone billionaire has a net worth of €1 billion or more, whereas a British billionaire has a net worth of £1 billion or more.

An individual’s net worth is computed by subtracting liabilities from assets. A billionaire’s assets include cash and liquid investments, personal property such as real estate, jewelry, cars and other vehicles, and furniture. Business interests, such as equipment and commercial assets, are included if the individual has a personal investment in a firm.

Every year since 1987, Forbes has listed the world’s billionaires.

Billionaires are a small but strong group

They are very tiny and have enough money to control worlds most of the resource. These people have enormous wealth as well as the power and influence that comes with it.

As previously noted, Forbes magazine publishes a list of the world’s billionaires every year. Forbes published the inaugural list in 1987, with 140 people on it. 1 In 2021, Forbes issued a list of 2,755 billionaires from 70 countries, setting a new record.

Particular Points to Consider

According to Forbes’ 2021 edition, the United States has the most billionaires in the world, with 724. Following China, there are 140 billionaires in India, 136 billionaires in Germany, and 117 billionaires in Russia.

Jeff Bezos, the founder and former CEO of Amazon, topped the magazine’s list with a total net worth of $177 billion. Forbes’ real-time billionaires list puts his net worth at excess of $210 billion as of July 14, 2021. Amazon (AMZN) achieved $386 billion in revenue and $21.3 billion in net profit in fiscal year 2020.

Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft, came in second with $124 billion, and Mark Zuckerberg, the inventor of Facebook, came in fifth with $97 billion.

With a net worth of $15.6 billion and a ranking of 127th, Lukas Walton was one of the youngest billionaires. He is the grandson of Sam Walton, the founder of Walmart (WMT). His father, John, died in a plane crash, leaving the then-19-year-old with a sizable inheritance. With a net worth of $2 billion at the age of 99, George Joseph, the founder of an insurance company, was the wealthiest person on the list.

The richest billionaire woman, according to the poll, was French Françoise Bettencourt Meyers, granddaughter of L’Oréal’s founder and heir to his fortune. Her estimated net worth was $73.6 billion, putting her in twelfth place overall.

According to Rafael Badziag, an entrepreneur and author of “The Billion Dollar Secret: 20 Principles of Billionaire Wealth and Success,” many people have a common misconception about billionaires and money.

Badziag spent five years interviewing and researching the lives and enterprises of 21 self-made billionaire entrepreneurs from around the world (defined as those with a net worth of at least $1 billion).

How to think like a Billionaire??

They enjoy their pastimes.

If the previous belief made you gag, this one should be a little easier to swallow. Everyone seems to be talking about their side hustles these days. It’s fun to talk about, but billionaires never have side jobs. Instead, they engage in pastimes that have no monetary value. Here are some well-known examples:

Elon Musk has a James Bond memorabilia collection.
Ukuleles are a hobby of Warren Buffett’s.
Bill Gates is a book and manuscript collector.
Mark Zuckerberg is a meat eater who kills and eats his own meat.
Jeff Bezos is a collector of vintage rocket parts.

You may argue that billionaires follow those activities because their wealth allows them to do so, yet many billionaires are workaholics who nevertheless manage to find time for their interests. Elon Musk works incredibly long hours… yet still finds time to play with his collection.

Hobbies are effective because they communicate to your brain that you are more than your job. While they can be used as a productivity tool (“it’s a way to relax”), millionaires don’t appear to think of them that way. They consider hobbies as a source of purpose in their life in and of themselves.

That, I believe, is beneficial. I’m not suggesting you shouldn’t work hard or that having a side hustle is a terrible thing if you need it to make ends meet or prepare for your next career move. However, you could, and definitely should, set aside time to do something physical and enjoyable that is unrelated to your finances.
