The <wbr>greatest <wbr>success

I did not have a rich father.
Tried 3 times for university. All failed.
I applied for Harvard for 10 times. All failed , they don't even want to see me.
For the last time , I went to the teachers' college which considered the third or fouth class of my city.
I applied jobs for 30 times. Got rejected.
It was so difficult at that time , I was so frustrated because I taught in the university. My pay was $10 a month.
Because I could not find a good job.
In 1994 , discussed that I am going to do something called Internet and 23 of them against it. They said - "This is a stupid idea , we've never heard about the internet and you know nothing about computer. "
And I never thought I was smart. Nobody believed that I could be successful because everybody said - "This guy think differently , think crazily. He'll think about something that will never work. "
I tried to borrow USD 3000 from the banks.
It took me 3 months but I still couldn't get it.
We talked to over 30 or 40 venture capitalists. Everybody said no. Forget it.
Lot of people said Alibaba is a terrible model.
I said - "I believe it.  I think this thing could be big. "
I never thought it would be that big like today.
But I believed that something is waiting for me there and I have to work hard to prove myself.
That was the tough experience.
So , we gathered $50000 from 18 founders. We started.
For the first 3 years , we did not have even $1 revenue from our business.
It was not easy.
But why it kepts us going ahead , going forward because I received lots of emails of thanks from the customers.
They said - "This is such a great thing. We cannot pay you but this thing helped us. "
If you keep on helping us , one day you will be successful and I believed this.
Little by little built up our business.
Little by little built up our ecosystem of the infrastructure.
And now after 16 years , we have Alibaba group , wehave Tmall group , we have Taobao group and we have Alipay.
And people say - "You're so smart , how could you make a company like that. "
Bill Gates , Warren Buffet , Jack welch , Larry Page , Mark Zuckerberg , The difference between those people and other people - they are always optimistic for the future.
They never complain. They always try to solve the problems of the others.
When you'are optimistic , it's always opportunity.
People say the same thing here today - "Jack where is the opportunity?
I don't have a job. I don't have this , I don't have that. "
We're at the best time of this century.
The best assets you have is that you're young.
Don't complain. Let the other people complain.
The opportunity always lies where people complain.
Think about how you can make things defferent.
Is there anything I can do that makes the difference.
And then when you think about this , start to do it.
I saw a lot of people , young people have fantastic ideas every evening.
But in the morning they go to the office same again.
Being entrepreneur , you have to do the things before other people do.
You have to wake up before the other people wake up.
You have to be more brave than the others.
Use you instinct. Everything you do is to the need of the customer.
To everybody , to any person , tomorrow is new.
Make the move. Make the action.
Whether investors believe it or not.
Whether your friends believe it or not.
Whether your parents believe it or not.
That's not important.
You believe it , your team believe it and work day and night on this.
That's how the things happen.
Make enough mistakes. You fall. You stand up.
Any mistake is income. It is a wonderful revenue.
Don't worry about the money. Money follows people.
People should follow their dreams.
If you have a dream , just go ahead.
I think nobody can conquer the world. We only can serve the world.
Work for others or work for yourself
and I choose the way of working for myself.
Working for myself that means working for the society.
If you really want to work for yourself , think about the others.
because only when the other people are successful , when the other people happy , You will be successful. You will be happy.
