Distinction is earned by achievement

A rich man said:

I have no special feelings about being the richest man in the world. I live an ordinary life in a modest apartment with my wife. I do not drink or smoke and I do not like the billionaire lifestyle as depicted in the newspapers, with luxury yachts, mansions in country sides, noisy parities and marriages to beautiful girls, which usually end in divorce with settlements costing millions of dollars.

I like working and I am happy to work. I usually take my lunch with me to eat it in the workplace. I do  not feel happy when I think about all the millions I own. What makes me  happy is when I remember how I helped to change my hometown of  Tokyo from a humble town to a capital city that is the focal point of world attention with its modern architecture that I introduced…in brief, my happiness comes from my achievements.
