16. Larry Ellison
Born to an unwed Jewish mother, Larry was raised by his adoptive parents. Although he had no privileges at his end, he was a bright student and made his way to co-founding Oracle Corporation – One of the most innovative technology companies globally.
The self-made Billionaire states, “I have had all of the disadvantages required for success.” The guy did not succumb to his circumstances; instead, he made his way to victory through them.
One must use adverse situations as a fuel to propel towards achieving their dreams.
