Richest Americans List 2013
400 Richest American People 2013 Review
For the 20th time in a row the richest person in the United States of America is.. wait for it.. Bill Gates! It's interesting how nothing much really happens with the top 10 list of America's richest. They might go up or down a few places here and there, but those at the very top of the list have become static. I haven't had a good look at the Forbes 400 list yet but I'm guessing Warren Buffett is at number 2 and Larry Ellison is at number 3 (OK now I have checked and I was right!).

Get Rich Slowly
Michael Dylan Get Rich Slowly Article
I have to confess, I have read a whole bunch of get rich quick books, listened to get rich quick audio books and have even bought a few crappy get rich quick ebooks. They all taught me that you can get rich quickly by selling get rich schemes to lazy people like myself looking for shortcuts. Which is not to say that one can't become rich quickly, but there's a lot of luck involved and luck isn't something I'm prepared to depend on for my financial freedom.

List of the Richest People in the World 2009
World's Billionaires Review 2009
Americans dominated the billionaire list this year, carrying 45% of the list's slots and holding 44% of the wealth on the Forbes list. Economic declines in the last part of 2008 are partially to blame for the decline in both wealth and number of billionaires on the March list with some individuals losing 50% or more of their net worth over the last 12 months. Overall, the collective net worth of the richest people is estimated around $2.4 trillion, a whole $2 trillion lower than last year's list.

List of the Richest Chinese People in 2008
China had a booming industry in 2007 and its wealthy residents amassed billions of dollars in fortunes. 2008, however, has turned out to be less than ideal for China's elite and Forbes recent list of China's top 400 richest people reflects just how much the global economy is affecting them. The estimated combined net worth of China's 400 in 2008 was $173 billion, over $100 billion less than the previous year. Losses and drops in assets are blamed on the recent 60% drop in mainland stocks combined with a 50% decline in shares in Hong Kong.

Develop a Prosperity Consciousness
Brian Tracy Prosperity Consciousness Article
The starting point of all riches is the development of a prosperity consciousness. You must become a financial success in your thinking long before you achieve it in your reality. Both poverty and riches are the result of a state of mind, and the most important single step you ever take on the road to wealth and financial independence is the decision to change your thinking, to impress into your mind an unshakable belief that you can and will achieve your financial goals.

I think money is simply a tool that people can use to do great things – or bad things
