Top 100 Richest People (Billionaires) in The World - 2014

   As Human Beings, we wake up in the morning and go out to work, to school and to other various destinations almost everyday but if we should think about it properly, we'd see that we do almost everything we do (directly or indirectly) in order to be successful and rich (although some of us don't want to be filthy rich while some want to be). As far as am concerned, the desire to be rich always flow in our mind but at the same time, there are so many people up there who are already on the top spot of the richest people in the world. Do you think you can pull them down and make the list of the world's richest ?
