Personal Beliefs

Most of Bills personal beliefs revolve around working hard and trying your hardest to succeed. He believes that if you are intelligent and know how to apply your intelligence you can accomplish anything. Bill thinks that if you don't work your hardest you will never succeed. Microsoft's vision is "A computer on every desk, and Microsoft software on every computer. Bill is obviously a visionary but he also works very hard and very competitively to carry out his vision. His belief in high intelligence and hard work is what put him where he is today, as well as being in the right place at the right time. He doesn't believe in luck or any sort of god, just hard work and competitiveness. Some smaller software companies complain that even if they have a better product than Microsoft they can't market it because Microsoft can and will always out advertise and out price their product. Bill simply sees it as good competition and he will continue to stomp out the competition until he dies. Interestingly one of Bills favorite games is the game of Risk, the game of world domination. These beliefs are few but they are quite powerful in the computer software industry and will continue to increase Bills wealth and his monopoly on the industry.
