Tulsa, OK (PressExposure) January 30, 2009 -- Bill Bartmann is a self-made billionaire with quite a success story. Getting there takes hard work and determination; however, the secret is quite simple. During a recent interview, Bill Bartmann said, âOne does not have to come from an affluent family to become rich and successful; any one who applies themselves can achieve success.â
Bill Bartmann came from a family of 8 children. His parents were uneducated and worked low-wage jobs. He remembers moving quite often and times when his family was forced to leave their home because it was condemned. His background experience includes leaving home at the age of 14, joining a street gang, being part of a travelling carnival, dropping out of high school and being a teenage alcoholic. At the age of 17, he was seriously injured and told he would never walk again. Does this sound your typical aspiring billionaire?
According to Bill Bartmann, anyone can overcome lifeâs obstacles and achieve success. With determination and will, Bartmann walked out of the hospital five months after being told he would never walk again. He built a fortune in the oil and gas business which went bankrupt when prices fell. He built another fortune in the debt collection business which failed when a partner embezzled money.
Bill Bartmann certainly understands the concept of risk and reward. Big risks can result in big pay-offs; they can also backfire and leave you bankrupt. Bill Bartmann has experienced both extremes.
Bill said, âIt just shows that it is not your circumstances that make an individual wealthy. Itâs your mindset.â Bill has shown that he can lose everything one day and rebuild it the next. Bill sums up his secret to success, saying, âAll the successful people I have known in life have a high self-esteem and all the losers have a low self-esteem.â
So, that is the secret, self-esteem. Though quite simple and perhaps disappointing, it is very profound. Bill explained, âYou see, our self-image drives everything that we do and our self-image is inexorably linked to our self-esteem and self-confidence. Improve your self-esteem and improvements in your life will naturally follow.â
Inspired by the events that defined his career, Bartmann is the founder of the Billionaire Business School for aspiring entrepreneurs. His seminars, workshops and materials are designed to show people that anyone can be successful in spite of any obstacles that may be in the way.
