  1. Bill Gates

    William Henry Gates III (born October 28, 1955) is an American business magnate, investor, author, philanthropist, and humanitarian. He is best known as the principal founder of Microsoft Corporation. During his career at Microsoft, Gates held the positions of chairman, CEO and chief software architect, while also being the largest individual shareholder until May 2014. Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, Gates launched Microsoft with Paul Allen in 1975; it went on to become the world's largest personal computer software company. Gates led the company as chairman and CEO until stepping down as CEO in January 2000, but he remained chairman and became chief software architect. In June 2006, Gates announced that he would be transitioning to a part-time role at Microsoft and full-time work at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the private charitable foundation that he and his wife, Melinda Gates, established in 2000. He gradually transferred his duties to Ray Ozzie and Craig Mundie. He stepped down as chairman of Microsoft in February 2014 and assumed a new post as technology adviser to support the newly appointed CEO Satya Nadella.Gates is one of the best-known entrepreneurs of the personal computer revolution. He has been criticized for his business tactics, which have been considered anti-competitive. This opinion has been upheld by numerous court rulings.Since 1987, Gates has been included in the Forbes list of the world's wealthiest people, an index of the wealthiest documented individuals, excluding and ranking against those with wealth that is not able to be completely ascertained. From 1995 to 2017, he held the Forbes title of the richest person in the world all but four of those years, and held it consistently from March 2014 to July 2017, with an estimated net worth of US$89.9 billion as of October 2017. However, on July 27, 2017, and since October 27, 2017, he has been surpassed by Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, who had an estimated net worth of US$90.6 billion at the time. As of August 6, 2018, Gates had a net worth of $95.4 billion, making him the second-richest person in the world, behind Bezos. Later in his career and since leaving Microsoft, Gates pursued a number of philanthropic endeavors. He donated large amounts of money to various charitable organizations and scientific research programs through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, reported to be the world's largest private charity. In 2009, Gates and Warren Buffett founded The Giving Pledge, whereby they and other billionaires pledge to give at least half of their wealth to philanthropy. The foundation works to save lives and improve global health, and is working with Rotary International to eliminate polio.

  3. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    D'innombrables livres ont été écrits et déjà publié par de nombreux auteurs, plus de livres sont écrits et publiés actuellement quelque part et beaucoup plus de livres seront écrits et publiés ultérieurement. En fait, Bill Gates a écrit et publié des livres perspicaces, beaucoup de livres de lecture vaut aussi bien John C. Maxwell a écrit et publié, Og Mandino a écrit et publié des livres d'inspiration, Les Brown a écrit et publié des livres de motivation, Zig Ziglar a écrit et a publié de nombreux livres profonds, Maya Angelou a écrit et publié des livres qui changent la vie, Chidi Okoroafor a également écrit et publié plusieurs livres de sagesse, de merveilleux livres aussi Enoch Adeboye a écrit et publié, Uma Ukpai a écrit et publié des livres d'inspiration, sans aucun doute David Oyedepo a écrit et publié de grands livres, WF Kumuyi a écrit et publié des livres de mind-blowing, Chris Oyakhilome a écrit et publié des livres réfléchis, de même Myles Munroe a écrit et publié des livres étonnants, Chinua Achebe a écrit et publié des livres sagaces, Wole Soyinka a écrit et publié livres intéressants, tout comme David Abioye qui a également écrit et publié des livres qui suscitent la réflexion parmi d'autres livres énormes et leurs auteurs qui sont nombreux pour moi de mentionner leurs noms ici et maintenant. Mais surtout, l'Ecriture (Bible) est le plus grand livre de la sagesse et de la connaissance jamais écrit et publié. Et marquer mes mots, il restera toujours le plus grand livre de tous les temps. Oui! parce que contrairement à tous les autres livres, l'écriture (la Bible) est inspirée de Dieu (il est donné ou écrit par inspiration divine) Ecriture Référence 2 Timothée 3:16. En outre, il est historique, mystique (il a une signification spirituelle) et faisant autorité dans la nature, il contient également des directives incomparables pour le comportement moral et de croyance (il est un mode de réalisation de passé ou de guerres anciennes et (les séquelles), histoires, cultures , les normes, les traditions, les valeurs, les modes de vie et les dossiers généalogiques). En outre, il est une collection de livres qui englobe passées ou anciennes histoires, chroniques, des enseignements, des lois, des paraboles, des proverbes, des psaumes, des enseignants, des prédicateurs, des héros, des héroïnes, des saints, des rois, des reines, des prophéties, des prophètes, des prophétesses, des miracles, des avertissements , des signes, des prodiges, des mystères, des révélations (événements du passé, présents et futurs collectivement) et beaucoup plus que cela, y compris des idées extraordinaires ou des paroles de sagesse (encouragement) de Jésus-Christ lui-même (le plus grand professeur et inspirateur de tous les temps), roi Salomon, roi David, saint Paul parmi les hommes et les femmes sages anciens. En d'autres mots, l'écriture (la Bible) est rien d'autre qu'un exemple typique et parfait d'un livre saturé de rare et sans précédent inspirations, motivations, la sagesse, la connaissance, l'encouragement et d'espoir pour les désespérés. Maintenant, voilà pourquoi l'Écriture (Bible) est toujours digne d'être lu maintes et maintes fois, quelle que soit sa religion. Le plus intéressant, l'Écriture (Bible) a été écrit et déjà publié dans presque toutes les langues du monde à savoir des milliards de copies ont déjà été publiés à l'échelle mondiale, plus de copies sont publiés actuellement et beaucoup d'autres copies seront publiées tôt ou tard. En fait, de façon irréprochable (au-delà de doute et la critique) l'Écriture (Bible) a été lu par le monde entier et vous pouvez parier votre dernier dollar, il (la Bible) va sûrement être lu par la postérité avant (toutes les générations futures à venir ). Quoi qu'il en soit, à ce stade, je pense que vous devriez accord avec moi que l'écriture (la Bible) est et restera toujours le plus grand livre de tous les temps. Toutefois, si vous ne concordent pas toujours avec moi, alors il est évident ou plutôt je vous soumets que vous avez pas encore pris le temps de lire les Écritures (la Bible) à fond. Néanmoins, vous devez prendre votre temps afin de lire attentivement et de découvrir le caractère unique et l'exceptionnalité des Écritures (la Bible). Car, une fois que vous avez fait tout cela, vous aurez sûrement et éventuellement accord avec moi que l'écriture (la Bible) est et restera toujours le plus grand livre de tous les temps, QED. ~Emeasoba George

    Do you know greatness is not an inborn talent? Yes, It is not an inborn talent, people are not born with all those virtues which made them great. It only comes from inner desire, grit, and determination to accomplish extraordinary things, which makes them great. It commences from setting a goal, chalking out plans for its fulfillment, and giving your best to attain and last but not the least, is your belief and your optimistic nature. You can’t achieve success overnight. So, never be afraid of taking risks and embracing failure. You have to pour loads of effort and incessant hard work to reach a stage you would have always dreamt of. Our history is profused with a plethora of instances of great men and women who inspire us to touch the sky. Abraham Lincoln, Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Thomas Edison, and many others have proved that you can do anything you put your mind to and become great.

  5. Emeasoba George:

    King Solomon was a wise king and teacher too. Moreover, Plato was a wonderful teacher and inspirator. As well, Socrates was also an awesome teacher and inspirator. Zig Ziglar was equally a profound teacher and motivator. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate is undoubtedly an inspiring teacher and motivator. Enoch Adeboye is an insightful teacher and preacher. Besides, David Oyedepo is a charismatic teacher and preacher among other teachers and inspirators like John C. Maxwell, Martin Luter King Jnr., Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Theresa, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Steve Jobs, Chinua Achebe, Oprah Winfrey, Henry Ford, Nelson Mandela, Wole Soyinka, Chris Oyakhilome, Dr. Uma Ukpai, Paul Enenche, David Ogbueli, Matthew Ashimolowo, David Abioye etc. But above all, Jesus Christ was the greatest teacher and inspirator. And he will ever remain the greatest teacher and inspirator of all time. Because, he was the embodiment of divine wisdom, he is still the embodiment of divine wisdom and he will ever remain the embodiment of divine or extraordinary wisdom. Oh! yes, Jesus Christ is as well the epitome of divine wisdom. If you don't concur with me. Go ahead and read the scriptures (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John). For, you will surely and eventually concur with me QED. -Emeasoba George
