Life Lessons From Jack Ma
Jack Ma, a Chinese entrepreneur, who launched several successful startups in the face of severe criticism, was recently named “Person of The Year” by Financial Times. How, you ask? By focusing more on the bottom line than any other person around him. While people around him are always astounded by his stupendous success, these rules of life helped him get to his current position. If you wondered how he got there at all, then these inspiring life lessons might be just what you need!
1. Help others if you want to change the world
Help others. A principle Jack Ma always follows is to make even the smallest man work hard. According to him, small people will always grow big and become successful in life over the years.
2. It doesn’t matter where you start. Where you finish counts
Like Jack Ma did, do not focus on where you started your life. Your level of upbringing, your method of education and your lifestyle all do not matter as long as you do something with it towards the end. Dig your heels in and give every opportunity a shot!
3. Giving up is the biggest failure
According to Ma, “giving up is the greatest failure.” If you go out, try your best and fail to achieve your goal but see it through to the end, you are still a success. Like all great leaders, Ma recognizes a person is able to learn the most from obstacles and hardships. The key to success is persevering and learning from your mistakes. Give up and everything comes crumbling down.
4. Act swiftly
If Jack Ma had not jumped at the opportunity which was Alibaba, the world would have lost a truly great e commerce platform. Acting swiftly helps put you in the front and through acting on your feet, life can show you different things!
There were several times during Alibaba’s early history where the company seemed doomed. If Jack Ma had not fought against all odds to become great, he would not have made it anywhere near the top three. Hard times come and go but what you do in the face of these hard times is what makes you great in life.
With only $ 20,000 in hand and a dream to achieve, Jack Ma became the first Chinese entrepreneur in the world and is now the 118th richest man in the world. With a net worth of $ 29.7 billion, Jack Ma stands tall as a revolutionary inspiration!
