Great article and much wisdom from this successful and brilliant man. As I always emphasize, success leaves traits. Learn from the wisdom from other accomplished people.
Who is Jack Ma, you might wonder, in case you have never heard of him. Here are some facts taken from Forbes:
“Former English teacher Ma captured the world stage like no other Chinese businessman in September 2014 with the record-breaking $25 billion initial public offering of his e-commerce powerhouse Alibaba Group on the New York Stock Exchange. ”
The following article emphasizes on the importance of getting started, start DOING, that’s how dreams turn into reality. Numerous people just dream but they never take the necessary steps to learn what is needed and to do what is required to succeed. The beginning is always hard, or at least from my personal experience, but the key is to hang in there and keep going. With time, practice and experience you get better and it takes less time to finish your projects.
Here is an excerpt from the article posted by the Cambridge Entrepreneur Academy:
“When I first started Alibaba, I was immediately met with strong opposition from family and friends. Looking back, I realised that the biggest driving force for me then was not my confidence in the Internet and the potential it held, but more of this: “No matter what one does, regardless of failure or success, the experience is a form of success in itself.” You have got to keep trying, and if it doesn’t work, you always can revert back to what you were doing before.”
