  Do you ever think to yourself, "It must be nice," when you hear about the glamorous lives and million-dollar deals of top business leaders like Richard Branson and Bill Gates? Well, as nice as their lives may be, being nice has very little to do with this level of success — as you'll see in a moment as six people who become millionaires by age 30 reveal their keys to success.
  当你听到理查德·布兰森(Richard Branson)和比尔·盖茨(Bill Gates)等顶级商业领袖的奢华生活和数百万美元的交易时,你会不会对自己说“这一定很美好”?好吧,就像他们的生活一样美好,友善与成功没有什么关系——你马上就会看到,在30岁之前成为百万富翁的6个人揭示了他们成功的关键。
  1. Richard Branson says to dream big.
  1. 理查德·布兰森:“要有远大的梦想。”
  Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson made his first $1 million at age 23 in 1973; by age 41, he was a billionaire.
  In a 2017 blog post, the British business magnate wrote that dreaming big is essential for success: "Don't betray your dreams for the sake of fitting in. Dreaming is one of humanity's greatest gifts—it champions aspiration, spurs innovation, leads to change, and propels the world forward. We should all dream, and encourage others to do so too. In a world without dreams, there would be no art, no adventure, no moon landing, no female CEOs, and no civil rights. What a half-lived and tragic existence we would have."
  2. Mark Zuckerberg believes in making big bets.
  2. 马克·扎克伯格:“要下大赌注。”
  Mark Zuckerberg changed the way we communicate with Facebook, and as co-founder and CEO of the social media platform, he became a millionaire at age 22 in 2006. By 23, he was a billionaire.
  In a 2016 Facebook post discussing the 10th anniversary of the platform's News Feed — and initial resistance to the feature — Zuckerberg lauded his team's willingness to take risks: "One of the things I'm most proud of about Facebook is that we believe things can always be better, and we're willing to make big bets if we think it will help our community over the long term. News Feed has been one of the big bets we've made in the past 10 years that has shaped our community and the whole internet the most."
  在2016年的一篇谈论News Feed栏目10周年庆典(以及它的初始抗衡特征)的Facebook帖子中,扎克伯格称赞他的团队承担风险的意愿:“我最自豪的一件关于Facebook的事,是我们相信事情总是可以更好,如果我们相信这能长期帮助我们的社区,我们愿意做出大的赌注。在过去的10年里,新闻推送一直是我们最大的赌注之一,它影响了我们的社区和整个互联网。
  3. Bill Gates values simple solutions.
  3. 比尔·盖茨:“重视简单的解决方案。”
  Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates hit the millionaire mark in 1981 at age 26, and he became a billionaire by 31.
  In a 2007 commencement address at Harvard, Gates discussed how complexity stands in the way of solutions: "The barrier to change is not too little caring; it is too much complexity. To turn caring into action, we need to see a problem, see a solution, and see the impact. But complexity blocks all three steps. … If we have clear and proven answers anytime an organization or individual asks, 'How can I help?,' then we can get action and we can make sure that none of the caring in the world is wasted."
  4. Sara Blakely believes failure produces success.
  4. 沙拉·布莱克利:“失败会带来成功。”
  The founder of Spanx, Sara Blakely, was 29 when she became a millionaire in 2000. Just over a decade later, she joined the billionaire's club at age 41 - becoming the youngest self-made female billionaire.
  She is no stranger to failure and believes it's essential to success, telling CNBC in 2013: "My dad growing up encouraged me and my brother to fail … It's really allowed me to be much freer in trying things and spreading my wings in life."
  5. Warren Buffett swears by external performance measurement.
  5. 沃伦·巴菲特发誓:“要通过外部业绩衡量。”
  In 1960, the business magnate, investor, and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway became a millionaire at age 30. By age 56, he was a self-made billionaire.
  It's important to measure one's performance not just internally but externally, against the broader market, he told Inc: "Whether we do a good job or a poor job is not to be measured by whether we are plus or minus for the year. It is instead to be measured against the general experience in securities as measured by the Dow Jones Industrial Average, leading investment companies, etc. If our record is better than that of these yardsticks, we consider it a good year whether we are plus or minus. If we do poorer, we deserve the tomatoes."
  衡量一个人的表现很重要,不仅要看他的内部表现,还要看他的外部表现,还要看他的整体市场。他对Inc .网站的编辑表示:“无论我们做得好还是不好,都不能用一年是盈亏来衡量。相反,我们应该用道琼斯工业平均指数(Dow Jones Industrial Average)、领先投资公司(leading investment company)等所衡量的证券的一般经验来衡量。如果我们的业绩更差,我们就应该吃西红柿。”
  6. Elon Musk says it all comes down to hard work.
  6. 埃隆·马斯克:“这一切都归结于努力工作。”
  Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX and cofounder of PayPal and Tesla Motors, reached millionaire status at age 27 in 1999 and then billionaire status by age 41.
  SpaceX公司创始人、贝宝(PayPal)和特斯拉(Tesla Motors)的联合创始人埃隆?马斯克在1999年,也就是他27岁时成为百万富翁,41岁时成为亿万富翁。
  During a 2014 commencement speech at the University of Southern California, Musk told students: "I think the first is you need to work, depending upon how well you want to do and particularly if you're starting a company, you need to work super hard. So what does super hard mean? Well, when my brother and I were starting our first company instead of getting an apartment, we just rented a small office and we slept on the couch. We showered at the YMCA, and we were so hard up we had just one computer so the website was up during the day, and I was coding at night—seven days a week, all the time."
