I have digg widget on my Google dashboard and I clicked an article about Warren Buffet--perhaps the wealthiest man on the face of the earth. Bill Gates and Warren play a version of one-upmanship by seeing who can donate the MOST amount of money to philanthropic causes.
Warren Buffett has been on my top ten hero list for some time, but after discovering he plays bridge online with Bill for twelve hours a week, he may move up to the top-five.
I found the article published under the name, Success Soul: Abundance and Simplicity for Mind, Body and Soul.
I know nothing about this website in particular, it was simply the one that appeared in digg, and I liked the seven secrets.
Secret # 1 : Happiness comes from within.
“In my adult business life I have never had to make a choice of trading between professional and personal. I tap-dance to work, and when I get there it’s tremendous fun.”- Warren Buffett
Secret # 2 Find happiness in simple pleasures.
“I have simple pleasures. I play bridge online for 12 hours a week. Bill and I play, he’s “chalengr” and I’m “tbone”. — Warren Buffett
Secret # 3 Live a simple life.
“I just naturally want to do things that make sense. In my personal life too, I don’t care what other rich people are doing. I don’t want a 405 foot boat just because someone else has a 400 foot boat.” — Warren Buffett
Secret # 4 Think Simply.
“I want to be able to explain my mistakes. This means I do only the things I completely understand.” - Warren Buffett
Secret # 5 Invest Simply.
“The best way to own common stocks is through an index fund.” - Warren Buffett
Secret # 6 Have a mentor in life.
“I was lucky to have the right heroes. Tell me who your heroes are and I’ll tell you how you’ll turn out to be. The qualities of the one you admire are the traits that you, with a little practice, can make your own, and that, if practiced, will become habit-forming.” - Warren Buffett
Secret # 7 Making money isn’t the backbone of our guiding purpose; making money is the by-product of our guiding purpose.
“If you’re doing something you love, you’re more likely to put your all into it, and that generally equates to making money.” - Warren Buffett
