I, Jahan Choudhry, am not a millionaire, but I am in fact a billionaire.

Let me elaborate on how I am a billionaire.

According to Forbes there are 1,426 billionaires in the world. Click here to read the article.



1. Carlos Slim

According to this article, Mexico’s Carlos Slim is currently the richest man on earth.

Slim started off his professional life as a trader and went on to become a tycoon in many different fields including construction, food, mining and many other sectors.



2. Bill Gates

Bill Gates is the universally known founder of Microsoft, a company whose operating system is on most computers around the world from California to Canberra.



3. Amancio Ortega.

Third in this list came Spain’s Amancio Ortega, Europe’s richest man. Ortega is a self-made billionaire who started off from humble beginnings in Spain’s Galicia region to develop global fashion giant, Zara.


So am I one of these 1,426 official billionaires and do I hob-knob with the likes of Carlos Slim, Bill Gates, Amancio Ortega and the other thousand or so billionaires in the world? Do I play golf with Carlos Slim and say “Carlos, mi querido amigo Mexicano que tal?” (Carlos, my dear Mexican friend, how’s things) or do I play cards with Bill Gates and say “Yo Billy Boy, howya doing?” or do I have barbecues with Amanico Ortega and say “Amancio, Hey wassup?”. Am I on first name terms with such people.

No I am not.

Nor do I necessarily desire to be, not that there is anything wrong with that and I am share there is much I can learn from them.

So the question is how am I a billionaire?

Wealth is measured in assets

Wealth is measured not just in monetary terms in  the sense of dollars or pounds or any other currency but in what you own. Many people do not even have a million dollars or pounds in terms of money but have a house, business or other properties which are accumulatively worth over a million and are thus considered millionaires. They are thus considered millionaires due to their assets.

I, just like you too, have assets which I regard as worth  more than a billion dollars. These include some loved ones who if I had to chose between a billion dollars and them I would instantly in a heart beat without hesitation chose them. So of course would you. They are more important to me than yachts, private jets, lavish villas or anything else. Thus I am a billionaire.

I, Jahan Choudhry, am a billionaire.

Being aware of this fact and appreciating the true wealth in my life allows me to put things in their proper perspective and allows me to be very grateful for what I have and of course to naturally realize monetary wealth and physical assets are not everything. I am sure Carlos Slim would give up one billion dollars to regain the wife he lost in 1999, Soumaya.

I am sure all of us would do the same. A loved on is an asset worth more than a billion dollars and all of us have loved ones whose lives are more precious to us than any replaceable or even irreplacable (e.g. unique pieces or art) physical objects. Thus I am a billionaire with assets, loved ones, worth billions, and so are you.


I am a billionaire.

You too are a billionaire.

Appreciate what you have, cherish it and smile.

Have a great day and thank you for reading.

Photo: Never search your happiness in others, it will make you feel alone http://www.facebook.com/Myprogressivesuccess

Many people believe that happiness is acquired and dependent on external things be they material objects, certain sensual pleasures, other people and so forth. Far from it, happiness is primarily a choice on feeling a certain way regardless of the outside circumstances.

This is the third part in a series on the history of gold.

To read part 1, click here.

To read part 2, click here.

Gold has been with us for thousands of years. We have already seen in the previous articles that gold is used for self-adornment in the form of jewellery which serves visual purposes of beautification, and more practical uses when it is used for medical purposes such as to treat arthritis, cancer and other medical problems.

Gold is more omnipresent than we think as it is used in electronic products including the different cell phones that most of us use. By this I do not mean the external cases or frames of cell phone handsets but rather internal components.

These internal components of cell phones include such things as switches, connectors and so forth.

Many modern cellphones are in effect nothing more than mini-computers and are far more advanced than computers not only of the 1950s and 60s but even as recently as the 1990s so it is no surprise to know that gold is used for electrical purposes in computers and laptops including in the CPU and motherboard.

In addition to this gold is used in aerospace technology, construction of buildings, glassmaking and other sectors.



So gold is much more than a material for a person to look more beautiful but has many other purposes and serves many other important functions including in, our ever more digitalized and IT-based world, cell phones and computers.  As far as current knowledge shows us the earliest use of gold was in the middle east thousands of years ago. Did the workmen who first make the golden jewellery of the ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamia ever realize that the metal that they were using would one day be used for such a diversity of different functions.

In a previous article (click here to read) I gave a brief overview of the history of gold. In this article I will continue by talking about the other uses of gold in addition to it being used for personal adornment and beautification.

Gold for medicine

Believe it or not gold is used for medical purposes. It is claimed that it was used by the ancient Chinese as far back as 2,500 B.C. for a number of different illnesses such as smallpox,skin ulcers and measles. Further south in another part of Asia, the ancient Indians also used gold in their Ayurvedic treatments.

It is also used to treat arthritis. It is often done by way of injections which can take quite a few months, but there are even creams.

It can also be used to treat types of cancer including prostrate cancer, and in the past few days two companies, Cytlmmune and AstraZeneca announced that they would work together to collaborate on developing nanoparticles to treat cancer. Radioactive gold particles are also used in some green teas to help treat cancer.

Gold is used in artificial implants as it reduces the chances of being infected with bacteria. Many other implants cannot be used by some people because the material which they are produced from is more susceptible to being affected by bacteria, whereas that is not the case with gold which is far more bacteria resistant.

Gold is used for pregnancy testing including kits which can be bought in shops.

So from some of the examples above we can see that gold in addition to merely having pleasing aesthetic qualities and used by people to beautify either themselves or their possessions has very practical applications even in the field of human health. It has been used since very ancient times by civilizations such as the ancient Chinese and also the Indians and its medical usage is expanding with more research and technology being carried out to treat other medial problems and illnesses. So health-wise it has been used in the past and will be used in the future.

In my next article I will continue to talk about other uses of gold.
