New Delhi:  It is not a surprising fact that most billionaires were not born billionaires. They started from scratch; dreamed big and pursued that dream relentlessly to achieve it.

According to data based on data from Bloomberg Billionaires Index, of the 100 richest people in the world right now, eight billionaires were neither born into money nor have a college education. The data also indicates that five of these eight invested during hard times, four bought companies that were all but ruined at the time of purchase, three had one lucky deal that changed the course of their life, seven were early adopters of trends that had yet to be recognized.

Here is a list showing some of those inspiring people who struggled against all odds to make it big.
