Giorgio Armani: Many might underestimate this fashion designer, but Armani’s net worth is estimated at $7.3 billion. The lifestyle habit that helped him get there? “A well-maintained physique is a great business card. Ideas and intelligence are what matters, but if you have a well-maintained physique, it's better. People are always more willing when it comes to beauty. It's a classic ideal: healthy mind, healthy body. And, at least for me: discipline. Keeping the body in shape requires effort. It's the antidote to laziness, which is what I hate most of all. And it is an antidote against the passage of time,” he told GQ magazine.
