People who are wealthy typically have a positive outlook on life, are flexible, capable of making independent decisions, and do not worry as much about others as they do about themselves.
Money can make it easy to isolate yourself from the rest of the world. It can be quite difficult to develop close relationships with people if you can buy the things you want without working hard for them.
Many wealthy people have a habit of surrounding themselves with their own kind, meaning that they keep other people at a distance. They are not big fans of shallow relationships and prefer honest communication instead.
Some wealthy individuals are interested in what other people think about them because it helps them improve their self-image, but being rich does not guarantee that you will be happy.
The rich like to create challenges for themselves and compare their achievements with those of others from time to time. It is the only way to get both joy and satisfaction from what they have already achieved.
What makes them (Rich) so special?
Despite certain differences, however, it is difficult to empathize with the rich. One example is that we can’t comprehend just how much money it would take to achieve a billion dollar income. In reality, a billionaire’s income is likely somewhere around $200 million per year, but it is hard for us to wrap our minds around that number because we can’t grasp how anyone could possibly spend that much money in any given year.
This leads to some fairly unusual habits among ultra-wealthy people. When they are on vacation, for example, they have often interests in how to spend their money as fast as possible (rather than saving it or investing it). The top 0.01 percent of Americans, for example, typically manage to spend as much as 30 percent of their incomes before taxes take effect.
The extremely wealthy also have very different relationships with time than average people. In fact, money is often one of the few things which gives them a sense of control over their lives—and when they are out on vacation, they may spend hours each day doing busy work so that they can feel in control while they are away. Additionally, many wealthy individuals travel with their own personal staff, which can include housekeepers, chefs, security guards, chauffeurs and even IT support staff.
The world’s richest people are more concerned about safety than most average people are(for obvious reasons). First of all, they often travel with around-the-clock security to ensure that they don’t get robbed or harassed (and that extra security is no small expense). Meanwhile, even the richest people in the world may be concerned about threats that average people cannot fathom. For instance, Bill Gates worries about getting hit by a boat whenever he goes out on his yacht.
Life of the Rich People
The world’s wealthiest people have much more time to travel than most average people. According to a study, about 7 percent of billionaires have traveled to eight or more countries in the past 12 months. On the other hand, only two percent of the less wealthy have gone abroad during this time period.
Even so, The average ultra-rich family does not travel as much as you might expect. The top 1% of U.S. households are responsible for about 25% of all trips by Americans—but that still leaves 75% for everyone else. If we take the top 10% of U.S. households (those with average incomes or higher) and combine them with the bottom 10%, they account for only 40% of all U.S. trips annually.
The ultra-wealthy also use their free time in ways that most people find surprising—that is, if you even think about them at all. The wealthy may seem like a mysterious group because they travel under two different personalities: They first appear as innocent tourists, but then they behave as if they were a local when they return to their own homes and businesses wherever that might be stationed around the world. However, many of them have secret thoughts that very few other people have ever thought about before.
While saying this, not everyone with a “secret mindset” of a billionaire will become wealthy. Some will fail, and others may not even have the chance. However, that doesn’t change the fact that they are, at their core, driven by many of the same desires as successful individuals are. As a result, the people featured on this list have become some of the wealthiest alive today.
A penchant for collecting luxury items( After getting Rich)
In addition to traveling a lot, The ultra-wealthy have completely different patterns when it comes to shopping habits. In particular, they have a much higher tendency to buy luxury items. According to a study by The RichList , roughly two-thirds of billionaires either “own or collect luxury products” or own or collect art.
Gates has said that his favorite book is The Handmaid’s Tale, which is worth about $80,000. Similarly, “luxury product” collector George Soros collects bottles that are priced in the 5-figure range. For reference, the most expensive bottle on the wine auction site WineBid.com is currently this magnum of 1959 Chateau Lafite Rothschild which is worth around $36,000.
Let’s not forget about home decor
Furthermore, the ultra-wealthy not only collect luxury items, but also use their wealth to decorate their homes in truly spectacular ways, particularly art collectors, many of whom have become billionaires in their own right. Take David Geffen , for example, who was a partner at the incredibly lucrative music industry firm named Asylum Records . He currently owns a staggering collection that includes works by Andy Warhol and Jasper Johns—and he’s got enough room for them that there is a museum named after him with more than 3,000 visitors per day. He also owns a home in Malibu, California that is worth more than $150 million—and it is just one of his many homes.
In addition to owning luxury items, The ultra-wealthy also have a close relationship with animals. In fact, many of them own exotic pets—with a menagerie of wild animals being particularly popular. We know the richest people in the world are famous for keeping tigers, lions, leopards and bears as pets. Meanwhile, other billionaires are to dote on some rather unusual domestic pets including ostriches and emus (although these are generally not as likely to attack their owners).
Some rich people want to do their part in creating a better future for all of humanity. Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, for example, have signed the Giving Pledge and pledged to give at least 50 percent of their wealth away. Others, like Elon Musk and Richard Branson, have gone even further by investing huge amounts of money into spaceflight and green energy research.
Some rich people are self-made, some inherited wealth. All the (self-made)rich people do not have exact thoughts or mindset, but they do have exact “range” of those.
Most of them focus on their core business rather than on the social status. They usually work on their business for many years before they achieve success. Their lifestyle is quite simple but comfortably-rich.
They give up many things in order to become successful: freedom to do what they want and freedom to be in public and different things. Of course, few of them also enjoy their wealth and give away a lot of money to charity…
