Everyone wants to know the secret sauce of the world's richest and most successful entrepreneurs. According to Indian industrialist Harsh Goenka, they have seven common characteristics.

In a recent tweet, Harsh Goenka shared a collage with photos of Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, Amazon's Jeff Bezos, Virgin Group chief Richard Branson, Facebook Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg and Apple's Tim Cook. He listed seven traits that these personalities share.

The first, he said, was their frugality. The second -- working smarter, not harder.

Third,  Goenka said, they were driven by much more than money. Their fourth trait is investing in themselves.

Fifth, they are always curious, the RPG Group chairperson added.


Sixth, they choose their company wisely, surrounding themselves with smart people. And last, but certainly not the least, is their insatiable desire for success.

Of the personalities Goenka mentioned, two -- Bezos and Gates -- are among the five richest people in the world.
