Why Bill Gates is the richest man in the world? Is he more intelligence and creative then Steve Job? I don’t think so, personally I think Steve Job is much smarter than Bill Gates, but how come Bill Gates is richer and more successful?
The secret is Bill Gates was able to see the future and had a vision, i.e. putting a PC in everybody desktop! When he first started Microsoft, he was only a young computer nerd, but his company overtook all computer giants in the world within a short time!. His company is still the leader in the IT world,though fast closing up by other new comers in the IT world, especially in the world of Internet. Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Amazon meteoric rise in the corporate world is because they are able to create a new trend! The young CEOs become instant billionaire within a short span of time, unlike the traditional billionaires.
Another brilliant example is Google. Larry Page and Sergi Brin have the vision of “making all the world’s information ‘universally accessible and useful(The Economist, cited in Wikipedia). Google is the most popular search engine now, out performed many of its predecessors such as Lycos, AltaVista, and Excite and present competitors such as Yahoo!, Bing, Ask.com and more. It also captured more than 60% of the the online advertising market share since 2008(Wikipedia).
The latest outstanding example is none other than Mark Zuckerberg , the King of the Social Media, whose vision of connecting everybody in the world has created the largest community in the virtual world, it has more than 5 billions active users now. His success has made him the man of the year for TIME magazine.
