Jack Ma is the co-founder of Alibaba Group and one of the wealthiest people in China. I’ve listen to some of his stories and I like his vision and his reason of doing business. His goal is not to make money, but to make a great contribution to the society and to the world.
I find him successful especially for his ability to move forward despite the rejections he faced. According to his stories, he applied and got rejected from Harvard 10 times and after his graduation he applied to 30 different jobs and got rejected from all of them (he even applied to KFC and from 25 people, he was to only guy that didn’t get the job). Can you imagine how great of a mindset he has to go from failure to failure so many times?
You can find below a video made by Evan Carmichael with his view about Top 10 Rules for Success that Jack Ma applies in his life.
Which rule is your favorite? I must say that I like all of them, but the first one had the biggest impact on me (with the stories behind).

Wow! He’s really inspiring and I agree with you, the first rule is really impactful. I don’t know how he handled so many rejections.
He is, isn’t he? I don’t know either… I guess he has a strong mindset and a great goal.
Yup, totally agree with you.
I think rejection is a loaded word. It is real and powerful thing that can transform people!
Yes, it is. It can be both harmful and helpful.
