    Being a billionare is not easy. One need right brain, fortune and idea of how to do, when to do, what it would be its results and many things of which only them or future them know it. Being so rich is definitly something big. But believe me, its not big as the amount. The one who is really succesfull with money is not the richest person, but those who are realise that this is only for some small period and they need to do right thing with whatever is available. God gave more money, maybe in less time to some people only, that only to test them. To see that if they are spending it in the right way, to see if they think its due to only there work or it only goes through once fate. Everything is only to test people. I only hope it doesn’t ever turn against them in one day in which the amount of money they made is not a criteria, but only their way of spending.

    I think every richest world persons should have a meeting and see the way to get a better world, they have much money and they can help the world economy and do a bussiness for everybody win, and they do not think only to increase their personal accounts. please think it over
