6. Steve Jobs
The CEO of Apple was a legendary and admired man but what most people don’t know is that he was not always as successful as we came to know him. The mastermind behind some of the best gadgets in the world was once very poor especially during his college years.
Steve Jobs shared his experience with the graduating class during his commencement speech at Stanford University. He said that he did not even have a room and used to sleep on the floor in his friends’ dorms. He would walk for over seven miles in order to get a good meal at a temple every week.
