Friends, we all know the success story of Bill Gates well, but do you know the habits that made him the richest person in the world. A person’s habits have a special effect on his life. We all have come to live a successful life in this world, but our habits lead us to failure. Here we are going to tell you about some of the habits of Bill Gates, who should become a successful person. You may not be able to become a millionaire or a billionaire by these habits, but I believe that some of these habits can automatically become an effective and successful person.
1. They Are Always Learning Something
Bill Gates is very well known as a dropout from Harvard University. But the only reason for this was that at the time he and his friend Paul Allen saw good prospects of starting a software company. Bill loves reading and getting to know new things. During college days, he sometimes used to sit in those classes which had nothing to do with his studies! This is the habit that resembles Steve Jobs at Bill Gates. When Steve Jobs had to leave Reed Collage to study because of lack of money, he slept on the floor in the room of a friend of the same college, so that he could attend classes on his favourite subjects.
2. They Read Everything!
Bill Gates ‘father said in an interview that -‘ They read everything. Sometimes they always keep reading. They like all kinds of books. Whether it is Encyclopedia, Science Fiction or any other book. Bill said that because of this habit, his parents began to think of him as a bookworm, and they were so worried that they had to ‘read nothing’ at dinner (no-reading-at-the- dinner-table). But that love of reading Gates continues in them even today and now they also publish a list of their favourite books every year. It is a good habit to read more and more. This enhances our knowledge and brings positive changes in our thoughts. We are more broad-minded.
3. He Also Gives Credit To Others
When he was once asked – ‘What were the best business decisions you’ve ever made? His answer to this was that – ‘My best business decision was to choose dedicated and right people to take the company forward.’ He tops his friend Paul Allen in this category. Although he and Allen had a very complicated relationship, they consider it best to choose Allen as their business partner.
Every person wants to be popular and we all should be good in this work, but more than that, it would be prudent to give credit to the work you work with whenever possible.
4. They Believe in Their Judgment
Maybe you can build a good career by following the suggestions and opinions of others, but if you imagine a career like Beal Gates and Steve Jobs for you, then believe in the decisions taken by you. Listen to yourself Whether the whole world denies it or even says it wrong. The same thing happened with Bill and Allen. He once said in his speech – “We had decided to move forward with an idea that no one was willing to accept.” Nobody used to accept that computers and software would one day become tools that would be on every table and in every house. ”
Despite all the disagreements, he started the company with firm conviction on his decision ….. and what happened after that is history! Just think if Gates had believed the words of the people at that time, would he have been the “Bill Gates” of today?
5. He Concentrates Fully on The Work He Does
People get distracted very quickly. Due to which they are unable to concentrate fully on any one task and today the world has become multitasking. People do many things at once. However, people are not able to do any work with this work culture very well. Bill Gates also opposes it and not only opposes it but also follows the habit of being completely focused on anyone work. One of his fun habits is that he often sleeps while coding on the computer! And when they arise, they start without any mistake from exactly where they stopped coding.
It is possible that we could not concentrate so much but we should always try to do the work that we do, without any disturbance (like checking Facebook between tasks, watching messages of mobile or Whatsapp, etc.). Do it With this, not only can we do that work in the best way, but with that work, we also make a good impact on others.
So it was Bill Gates who helped him become the most successful businessman in the world. Do you agree with these habits? Which of these habits will you try to incorporate in your life?
