Now, these earnings for every second by these heavyweights may seem little in your eyes, but think again.

A man who earns $0.407 every second for instance, like Benard Arnault, would be earning $24.42 every minute and $1,465.3 per hour.

In many countries of the world, senior civil servants and company managers don't want $1,465 a month. Arnault's daily salary would then exceed $35,000 per day!

Per day! Many people would be glad to earn that amount of money annually.

Do the math. To put things in perspective, check your current salary and break it down to see how much you make per second, minute, hour and per day.

And while you're at that, respect these guys and work hard. Perhaps you'll get to that level of life in some years to come.

Even if you don't get to achieve that height financially, at least you'll achieve something worthwhile for yoir family.
