5 famous and rich people who live average life and lessons to learn from them

You might actually think that if you were incredibly wealthy, you would live a life full of extravagance and luxury . Yet some of the richest people in the world live casually and regular people can learn something from them.

1. Charlie Ergen

Chairman of the Dish Network, he still packs a brown bag lunch every day.

Net worth: $14.4 billion

Charlie Ergen is a business leader but he also nickels and dimes in his personal life. Ergen has said that his casual lifestyle hearkens back to his mother's childhood.

The self-made billionaire packs a lunch of a sandwich before work every day.

2. Mark Zuckerberg

You might not think of this as what rich people do, but the Facebook founder has been seen driving an Acura valued at around $30,000. Zuckerberg also wears jeans and a T-shirt nearly every day despite a net worth of over $75 billion according to Forbes.

3. Queen Elizabeth

Queen Elizabeth is famously a meek and humble woman. She demanded that all the palace lightbulbs be turned off while not in use, also using wrapping paper, recycling frayed sheets rather than replacing them and using the same handbag for up to 40 years which the United Kingdom express reported.

4. Michelle Obama

Former first lady Michelle Obama paid for her own clothes while in the White House. Many of the elegant gowns she wore were donated by their designers. When she shopped for herself, she often went to retail stores known for reasonable prices. On one appearance on NBC's "Today" show, she bought a $35 dress from fast-fashion retailer H&M.

5. Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga is one of the highest-paid celebrities in the world with a net worth of $320 million, but she's a self-proclaimed bargain shopper. The singer once tweeted that she uses coupons at the grocery store and bargains when she buys retail.


I think the most important lesson we should learn from them is humility.

It doesn't matter who you are or what you have ,learn to be humble because nothing lasts forever.
