Bill Gates explains why his daughter can't marry a poor man

“A few years ago I attended a conference in the US on investment and finance. One of the speakers was Bill Gates and in the Q & A phase I asked him a question that made everyone laugh

If He, the richest man in the world could accept his daughter marrying a poor or modest man. His response turned something into me.


First, understand that wealth doesn't mean having a busy bank account.

Wealth is first the ability to create riches.

Example: Someone who wins the lottery or games of chance. Even if he makes 100 million is not a rich man: He is a poor man with a lot of money, that's why 90 % of lotto millionaires go back to being poor after 5 years.

You also have rich people who have no money. For example, Most entrepreneurs.

THEY are already on the road to wealth even if they don't have money because they are developing their financial intelligence and that's wealth.

How rich and poor are different:

To make it simple: The rich can die to become rich, while the poor can kill to become rich.

If you see a young person who decides to train, learn new things, try to improve constantly, know that he is a rich man.

If you see a young person who thinks the problem is a state, and who finds rich people are all thieves and constantly criticizing, know that he is a poor man.

The rich are convinced they just need information and training to take off, the poor think others need to give them money to take off.

In conclusion, when I say my daughter will not marry a poor man, I do not talk about money. I'm talking about this man's ability to create wealth.

Excuse me for what I'm going to say, but most criminals are poor people. When they are in front of money they lose their minds that's the reason they steal, robbery, etc...

It's a grace to them because they don't know how they could make money on their own.

One day, a bank's guard found a bag full of money, he took the bag and went to hand it over to the bank manager.

People called this gentleman an idiot, but actually, this gentleman was just a rich man who had no money.

1 year later, the bank offered him a receptionist position, 3 years later he was in charge of customers and 10 years later he manages the regional management of that bank, he manages hundreds of employees and his annual bonuses exceeded the amount he could have stolen.

Wealth is first a state of mind my friend.”
