Do you ever wonder how people become rich? There are many different ways to become rich. If you are born rich, then it is the easiest way to become rich. If you marry a rich person, you would reap the benefits and become rich overnight. These cases don’t really impress or inspire anyone but the rags and riches stories do. By virtue of hard work, willpower, long-term vision, one can become rich.
Also, one must constantly keep on fighting, come what may. Everyone wishes to touch the altitude of success. There is no one who wants to lead a modest life. Though we all dream of being successful, very few of us get to taste success. They build a better foundation for themselves by bettering themselves from what they are now. Their aim is not to be better than anyone else but to be better than they used to be.
Meanwhile, India has produced notable billionaires even as family businesses have passed down from generation to generation. However, the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. In a bid to make a difference in society, few billionaires in India are extending their fruitful contributions to the less unfortunate ones.
