The First Person to Become a Billionaire
Rockefeller was the first person who ever became a billionaire. He became a millionaire by 20s, and a billionaire by 50’s. However, he became very sick. Agonizing, he awoke one morning and remembered a dream he had. In that dream he became very aware of not taking anything with him when he died. This completely reframed his thinking.
He Didn’t Find Life until He Found Generosity and Purpose
For first time in his life he made a choice to be generous. In those moments the John D. Rockefeller foundation was established. From the moment he began to live on purpose a generous life, his body began to heal and the man who was not going to live, lived to be 98. He didn’t find life until he found generosity and purpose.
