Bill Gates the most successful tech entrepreneur is the person behind the world’s top IT company Microsoft. Almost everyone knows about him. You might have heard many stories and things about him. Today, in this article I am going to share some of the best thoughts share by him.
“Don’t compare yourself with anyone in this world…if you do so, you are insulting yourself.”
The biggest mistake people do is comparing themselves with someone else. Actually, they both have read the different chapters of different books, the books are written especially for them. If we further analyze they are reading the different books written by themselves.
They are the author of their own book, their own experiences are creating chapters suitable for them. In short, you should stop comparing yourself with others. Your goal is different, your resources are different, you have a family to feed and friends to enjoy with, then why are you wasting your valuable time living someone else’s life?
Follow easy way
“I choose a lazy person to do a hard job. Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it.”
Don’t take it literally, he is just trying to say a person can use his energy completely if he has something most important than the problem. And, in order to achieve that he must find a solution to the current problem.
The goal is to find a simple solution for a complex problem, and who could be the best person to invest in such a situation? Only a lazy one who has other things to do, which are more important than wasting time on something that he doesn’t enjoy.
Don’t die poor
“If you are born poor it’s not your mistake, but if you die poor it’s your mistake.”
Taking birth in a poor family is not in your hands, but dying in the same situation is seriously your fault. I agree with Mr. Gates. You should work hard till you get success, if you keep hugging to your poor situation and blaming others’, you will not get anywhere.
“Life is not fair, get used to it!”
Life is not a fair game, you will not get everything readily available for you, you will have to do the things you might not have ever thought of. You are the responsible person for any wrongdoings happen in your life. The lie will not be fair, it will through you in a situation where you will get exhausted. It is the one who can bring you back from such a situation is you.
Help or invest in poor
“We make the future sustainable when we invest in the poor, not when we insist on their suffering.”
I hate people who have all the resources with them, but they don’t help the poor, instead blames them on their current situation. If you can’t help someone you have no right to comment on their situation. If you invest in the poor, they will sustain the situation. What will be the best feeling that someone has survived the war because of you?
“Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one.”
Being a nerd should not be a problem though. If someone is a nerd or doesn’t participate in everyday functions, it is not necessary he is not interested. He might have to work on something big, that average person can not even think about. Maybe one day you may have to work in his business. So, be kind to everyone.
Reality of Life
“If you think your teacher is tough, wait ’til you get a boss. He doesn’t have tenure.”
Sometimes students think their teacher is tough. She gives a lot of homework. I would like to tell you, one day maybe you will going be to do a job in corporate, where you will not be a kid anymore and your boss will be the worst nightmare you might ever have thought of.
“Patience is a key element of success.”
Patience is the key to success. No big thing happens in a night. You have to spend a lot of restless nights on your dream. You have to keep focusing on your goal in any situation.
Success is the process, which requires patience. Patience in every situation, where you will get crossed your path with failures, negativities and all other depressing things. But, it is your responsibility to keep yourself on track.
Failure doesn’t define your future.
“I failed in some subjects in exam, but my friend passed in all. Now he is an engineer in Microsoft and I am the owner of Microsoft.”
If you fail in your college exam or find something tough, it doesn’t mean you are failed in life. It just means you have to do some more work. Good grades don’t define your success, yes they will land you the best job in a company that might have been found by a failed person.
“To win big, you sometimes need to take big risks.”
To achieve big you have to invest in big, you are required to take the big risks. Big risks require the sacrifices, late restless nights and your precious time. But, once you achieve your goal, life is yours.
So, these were some of the best inspiring and motivational quotes by Bill Gates. If you enjoyed the read, consider sharing among your friends and family.
