Here we present several sentences that demonstrate Jack Ma’s understanding of start-up and managing a company. Let’s learn how to march for the success with the four rules.
Opportunity is for those who never give up.
“In my view, there is an opportunity for everyone if we never give up. Today is bad, tomorrow will be worse, and the day after tomorrow will become good, but most of the people give up before the day after tomorrow. All of us should concentrate on the things we are doing right now in order to grab the chance when it comes. We believe, that in this world, we can be somebody if we keep trying and learning, no matter what we look like, pretty or normal. Man’s talent is not dependent on his appearance.”

I understand it is much more difficult to spend other people’s money than our own. The most important thing for us is to do it gradually and look after it.”
You have only yourself to blame.
"No entrepreneur should stop working until the environment is alright. If the environment is in bad shape, they will have to work to change it, instead of stopping to complain and grumble about it, which makes no sense. If you fail, you have only yourself to blame. Even if you are unlucky, you have only yourself to blame. "
Nearly 40,000 Alibaba employees gathered for the 18th anniversary celebration in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province on September 8th, 2017. Chairman of Alibaba Group Jack Ma said he had spent 870 hours on fl...
