Paul Getty’s Secret Gift
J. Paul Getty (December 15th 1896 – June 6th 1976) was born
in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His father George Getty had a
petroleum business, thus he spent his summers between his
studies working at the oil fields.
At the mere age of 20 (in 1916), J. Paul Getty made his first
million running his own Tulsa oil company, and then later
founded the Getty Oil company.
He was one of the first few people in the world to reach an
estimated fortune of over 1 U.S. billion dollars at that
time. In 1957, he was even named the richest living American
in Fortune magazine.
“I take pride in the creation of my wealth, in its existence
and in the uses to which it has been and is being put.”
– J. Paul Getty
With this mantra, J. Paul Getty expanded his empire, and started
adding more and more to his sizable estate, at the same time
taking pride in his own work, efforts and success.
At J. Paul Getty’s death, his net worth was estimated to be
more than 2 billion dollars.
So what’s a Mantra? And how can you get your own to attain wealth,
abundance and enjoy the life you truly deserve.
