 Eike Batista is clearly one of the most exceptional businessmen in history. His achievements are incredible. Next to him we are all minnows. Sadly it appears he has lost 99% or 100% of his c.$35bn fortune (depending on reports). Courtesy of Forbes, below are the English translation of his ten business rules. They seem quite piquant in light of his struggle. It must surely be a reminder that we must all diversify to some extent away from our own self.

1. "Nobody is happy alone. To share experiences is always a good thing."

2. "You grown as a person when you face your own challenges, or stressful moments, as I like to say. A good entrepreneur must be prepared to evolve in adversity."

3. "The good seller is the one who is also a good listener."

4."Believe in yourself. If you doubt yourself, you won't be able to face your co-workers. Or the market, for that matter."

5. "Don't quit at the first adversity. Believe in your intuition, but try to be down to earth as well, paying attention to research and polls."

6. "Don't think you are unstoppable or foolproof. Don't think that the only way your business will work is through perfection. Don't aim for perfection. Aim for success."

7. "To have a dream is one step closer to achieving something in life. The difference between the dreamer and the maker, though, is that the latter actually makes it happen."

8. "Look forward; focus on what people don't see at first sight."

9. "Look at a business in all its depth and think of every detail with maximum accuracy and minimum risk."

10. "Luck is important, as it is part of any project. But luck will only be present when the project is well designed."
