The real rich man will never show that how much money he has or buy luxury cars or villars .When they become a real rich man ,he or she will have some qualities accordingly.The quality is not reflected by his status or matiral conditions but by the internal things such as the sacifice to the world.The classic example is Bill Gates who has ever been the first rich in the world,to our surprise,he donated much of his money to the poor areas such as Africa.

You must be referring to Mr. Warren Buffett, the second richest man in the world, who donated $31 billion to charities. He does not carry a mobile phone nor a owns a computer in his desk. It just shows what kind of a simpl man he is! He practically knows how to keep and control of his money by not buying what he wants but only the things he needs. He has not become a slave of his own money but even shared his wealth to others. Other interesting aspects of his life that anyone can be amazed of: He still lives in the same small 3 bedroom house in mid-town Omaha, that he bought after he got married 50 years ago. He says that he has everything he needs in that house. His house does not have a wall or a fence. He drives his own car everywhere and does not have a driver or security people around him. He never travels by private jet, although he owns the world's largest private jet company. His company, Berkshire Hathaway, owns 63 companies. He writes only one letter each year to the CEOs of these companies, giving them goals for the year. He never holds meetings or calls them on a regular basis. He has given his CEO's only two rules. Rule number 1: do not lose any of your share holder's money. Rule number 2: Do not forget rule number 1. He does not socialize with the high society crowd. His pasttime after he gets home is to make himself some pop corn and watch television. His advice to young people: Stay away from credit cards and invest in yourself.
