How to become a billionaire

如何成為億萬富翁 世界級富豪擁有哪些共同的品質?

Have you ever fancied sailing around the world in your own yacht or buying a holiday home in the Caribbean? Well, before you get too excited, it may help to find out if you have what it takes to become a billionaire.

你有沒有想過坐著自己的游艇環游世界?或者在加勒比海買一套度假房?好了,先別太激動,這能看出你是否具備成為一名億萬富翁的潛質。

We've all heard stories of school drop-outs who have made their fortune, but are they the norm or an exception to the rule? Do they tend to be university graduates or self-made entrepreneurs? Are they married or single?

我們都聽說過一些中途輟學的人最后成功發財致富的故事,但他們是大多數還是只是例外呢?他們是想讀完大學呢還是想白手起家創業呢?他們是已婚還是單身?

Thanks to a recent analysis of people in Forbes Top 100 Billionaires List, we can now find out what the world's mega rich have in common. We know which star sign is the most popular amongst multi-millionaires, what percentage wear glasses and even how many are bald!

從最近福布斯富豪榜前100名公布的數據我們可以看出這些世界級的富豪擁有哪些共同的品質。他們當中哪種星座占比人數最多,哪些人戴眼鏡,甚至連誰是禿子這些事都了如指掌!

If you are deciding whether or not to go to university, it may help you to know that 76% of the richest people in the world have a degree. According to this study, of those 76%, 47% have a bachelor's degree, 23% have a master's and 6% have a doctorate. Don't lose hope if you aren't very academic though. It's worth noting that many of those on the list did not pass all their exams with flying colours. Microsoft founder Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard University after two years of study. And Chinese business magnate Jack Ma, failed his university entrance exams three times before going on to complete his degree and make his millions.

如果你還在為是否上大學而猶豫不決,那你應該知道76%的富豪都擁有學位。研究表明,這76%當中的47%擁有學士學位,23%擁有碩士學位,6%擁有博士學位。但別因為自己缺乏讀書的天賦而放棄希望。值得注意的是,富豪榜上的很多人都掛過科。微軟的創始人比爾蓋茨讀了兩年大學后從哈佛輟學。中國的商界巨頭馬云也曾經歷三次高考落榜后才考上大學,才有了后來的成就。

Another interesting trend is that the world's high-fliers are much more likely to be married - only 12% of billionaires are unmarried. You are also more likely to make it if you were born under the most popular star sign, Aquarius, than if you are a Cancer - the least popular sign on the zodiac. Finally, the percentage of billionaires who are bald is quite high - so don't worry if you're losing your hair, you may get to sail that yacht around the Caribbean after all!

另一個有趣的現象是那些富豪當中已婚的居多—單身的富豪只占12%。如果你是水瓶座,那你成功的幾率要比是巨蟹座大——前者是富豪榜中人數最多的星座,而后者則是最少的。最后,禿頭的億萬富翁的占比相當高——所以別再為自己脫發而擔憂了,反正你有可能因此坐上游艇環游世界!
