Today is the 2nd time I write about a person who changed the world. The first person I wrote about was Steve Jobs and so I decided that it would be completly normal the next person to be Bill Gates whose real name is William Henry Gates III – I guess many of you didn’t know that. Bill Gates has been part of the Richest people in the world for the past 26  years, he first showed up on the list at 1987 with net worth of $1.4 billion and after that his net worth continued to grow, so he held the first place from 1993-2007  but recently lost the first place to Carlos Slim according to Forbes. Time Magazine also named Bill Gates “one of the 100 people who most influenced  the 20th Century.

 

So how did Bill Gates change the world?

 

He did change the world through technological innovation, keen business strategy and aggressive business tactics, and by charities, he has donated billions of dollars and continues to do it up to this day. He dropped out of Harvard to chase his entrepreneur carrier and so he  and  his partner Paul Allen built the world’s largest software business, Microsoft. And Microsoft changed the world completely, like 90 % Of the computers we use today, use Windows Operating System which is made by Microsoft  and computers are actually the driving force of the world today, like almost everything is done by computers. So you can imagine the impact he had on the world. Now let me tell you how much money he has donated.. He has donated $37 billions in his life time and this number will continue to grow guys..

Bill Gates as almost every successful person is a true competitor, I would like to share a story with you not many people know. An  executive at Microsoft  says that after he showed Gates a game and managed to defeat him 35 of 37 times, when they met again a month later Gates “won or tied every game. He had studied the game and mastered it, so he wouldn’t lose again.

 

It’s fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.
-Bill Gates

Like almost every successful entrepreneur in the world Bill Gates failed at first, before founding Microsoft he failed with his first business, but he learned his lessons. And that’s what this quote is all about, celebrate your success but learn your lessons when you fail.

If you are born poor, it’s not your mistake, but if you die poor it’s your mistake.
-Bill Gates

You can’t change the situation you are born into guys, you can’t dwell  on the past but you can always change the future by changing the present. You decide your future, you decide if you are going to be rich or poor. So don’t blame others and focus on what you have to do in order to achieve what you want in life.

 

So thank  you Bill for everything you have done.
