Mayor Bloomberg, a media mogul whose fortune is estimated at $27 billion, says the key to success is working long hours with fewer bathroom breaks, shorter lunch times and working harder than everyone else.

The 71-year-old founder of Bloomberg LP said on his weekly radio show Friday that "you make your own luck -- the harder you work, the luckier you get."

"I always tried to be the first one in in the morning and the last one to leave at night, take the fewest vacations, and the least time away from the desk to go to the bathroom or have lunch," he said.

"You gotta be there," he went on. "I mean, everybody says 'Oh that's crazy,' but if you want to succeed -- you can't control how lucky you are, you can't control how smart you are, but you can control how hard you work."
