Many entrepreneurs struggle to make ends meet and make payroll on a regular basis. Others make it so big that they reach billionaire status. That's a level beyond the dreams of most and that is why most will not ever make it.
According to Forbes magazine, it is the thought processes and patterns of billionaires that separate them from other business owners. So let's look closely at a few of the characteristics of those that have achieved the ultimate.
Dream and mindset
Mark Zuckerberg of FaceBook, Richard Branson of Virgin, Steve Jobs of Apple, Bill Gates of Apple, and Oprah Winfrey of Harpo all dream large. This country is full of "mom and pop" stores and restaurants whose owners have fulfilled their dreams of business ownership. While many are happy and satisfied at their current levels of success, there are billionaires who have taken a store concept to a whole new level.
Consider Wal-Mart, which has multiple stores in cities across the country. Sam Walton had the mindset and vision to take the concept of one store to many stores. The goal was achieved as vision was coupled with the execution of plans to get there. Today, the Forbes Richest People in America List features several members of the Walton family.
