Now that the official list is out and I’m no where near it, I have to relinquish my desire to be with the elite class of entrepreneurs that make millions or are valued billions.Sad to see our society,together with the media generating such interest that our focus on success has been monetary driven and dollars measured.Going through the list ,I have the uncanny belief that I may lie somewhere in 2,000,000 th position like most of you(I think)
Ranking and grading are very much part and parcel of our life since our primary education days and the inertia of such a representation throttles forward and beyond to encompass our working achievement as well.Each of us are bitten by the bug at a tender age to excel and produce results marked only by grades and position.With an early infection not curtailed and contained in its primordial stage,the inevitable spread beyond its origin ensued and the insatiable need and often greed took its toll among the majority of us.,leaving a trail of self destruction.
With rising costs and everything on the rise,we may never rise again in this sinking ship and attain the unachievable.A sense of pessimism or many cents of realism?A time to ponder. Perhaps you need to unleash the spirit of the Empress Dowager within (the Forbidden City) to cripple an impending upsurge of unhealthy desires in this sickening Forbes-bitten City......... blink.gif

In her case, bloodline unknown because she was given away for adoption when she was born. You don't have to come from good "bloodline" to make it to the top.

Same with goldfish keeping. You don't always need good bloodline to produce a champion.
