20 ways you can live like a Billionaire Today!

Updated: Jun 4

Be you a billionaire or not, we all only have 24hrs a day to live and do the the things we want!

1. Start your own company. No billionaire is an employee unless they are an employee of their own company. Starting your own company offers additional tax benefits in addition to creating equity in an entity that can be sold later or employ others so to free up your time to do other things in life that only you can do.

2. Join a club

Billionaire’s love exclusivity. By joining a club or creating one you become a member of something exclusive. Clubs are where likeminded people meet, network, relax and do business.

3. Give to charity, donating your time and money

A study recently found the good feeling we feel when giving is not actually determined by the dollar amount given but more by the action of giving. So even by donating a small amount or volunteering you’ll benefit just as much as a larger donor. Better still donating to a charity often comes with tax deductibility. And if you believe your charities spending is savvier and more specific than the government’s you have the opportunity to refocus where your tax dollars are spent by donating to your chosen charity rather than the government deciding for you.

4. Never retire

Have you ever heard of Billionaire retiring? They may step down from managing their business however they remain on the board. Billionaires love what they have built, employment of others, their contribution to society and ensuring a legacy remains.

5. Visit art galleries and museums

There is no need to establish a personal art collection when one can get appreciate priceless art and sculptures in our cities museums and art galleries. Also appreciation of art communicates with the soul and mind offering different perspectives whist challenging our beliefs.

6. Own an iPhone

Smart Phones are simply the best technology one can buy. Bill Gates is known to use one. For a small cost you can own and access the same technology as Billionaire’s today.

7. Dine with friends regularly

Humans are social creatures, therefore spending time with those who accept us and enjoy our company is essential to renewing ourselves, exchanging ideas, debating as well as experiencing the “Joie de vie” the Joy of Life!, while partaking over a meal with friends.

8. Invest your time and money into appreciating assets i.e. people and companies

The main reason why the wealthier are getting wealth is because they continue to invest and reinvest their time and money into appreciating assets. Think compound interest. This is opposite to what most other do i.e. depreciating assets such as car’s, fancy clothes, holiday souvenirs etc.…

9. Be absolutely passionate about what you do

Passion is the glue that holds together three other essential ingredients for one’s success. These essential ingredients are Knowledge and Skills, Mental and Psychological Strength and Physical Stamina. Ensure your passion is succinct, compelling and all about you!

10. Support a political party

Politicians are elected to represent the people. Politicians also legislate laws that effect businesses and individuals in our communities. Keeping abreast of these changes whilst also having an open door to the political parties on any side of politics makes for better informed business decisions and opportunities.

11. Spend less on yourself than your investments earn

The secret to great wealth is simple. Spend less than you earn and invest everything else. True financial freedom is attained when your investment income exceeds your lifestyle expenses (full stop).

12. Sleep on crisp clean bed sheets

Sports coaches attest to the fact the better you rest the better you perform. There’s just something luxurious (and attainable to us all) about sleeping in crisp clean bed sheets which also aids a good night’s rest ensuring you wake up on the right side of the bed in the morning.

13. Exercise regularly

Billionaires need to exercise just as much as the rest of us. Regardless of how much money you have in your bank, we all know the importance of exercise combined with a good diet as well as the positive impact these have regarding our choices and decision making process.

14. Know your business i.e. your financials

Billionaires are known to make decisions quickly. The reason they have the confidence to do so is because they know their finances i.e. their assets, debts, incomes and expenses. Knowing where you stand financially is essential for both peace of mind and being in the box seat to take advantage of opportunities when they come your way.

15. Be trust worthy and trust others

Unless you inherit, marry, or win a billion dollars chances are you are going to have to engage others on your journey towards financial independence. Building trust has two essential ingredients character and competence, without both of these ingredients inefficiency and headwind will continue to dog you and be a roadblock to your success. With these your success will be efficient as well as your chances heightened of keeping it.

16. Be innovative. Think outside the square when solving problems

Money flows to where it’s most valued. By creating and delivering more value to others you increase your own chance of success. Innovate first and if your innovation adds sufficient value to others, then the money will come.

17. Regularly challenge yourself

Learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job. “If you work hard on your job you can make a living, but if you work hard on yourself you’ll make a fortune” – Jim Rohn

18. Do it i.e. take action

Without action good intentions and goals are but dreams. “Life is not a dress rehearsal. This is your life”. Pastor Lawrence T. Holman

19. Learn to say no.

Any fool can say yes or buy what they want, however it takes courage to say no, to make choices and make personal sacrifices for ones greater success. I remember the John West ad. “It’s what John West rejects, that makes John West the best!” If you want to be the best then learn to say no, be you a billionaire or anyone else.

20. Delegate low payoff activities.

The one thing we all have in common is time. 24x7=168hrs per week. Be you a Billionaire, a man, woman, child or adult. Investing your time doing activates having the highest direct payoff is essential for a life of fullness and contentment. Do only that which advances your relationships, spirit, health, career/business and community everything else can and should be delegated. If you can’t do this look back to No.15. We only have 168hrs a week.

You should always seek independent financial advice when it comes to choices about your personal finances. This is one area of your life where it’s worth paying for it to be done right.
