Someone asked Mr. Jack Ma, “What is your secret for success?” He replied, “It’s really simple ….I act while people only watch”
Here he gives important advice, Jack Ma says, “The world is changing everyday and no one is going to wait for you to act.”
When lighter was invented, matches slowly disappeared. When the calculator was created abacus was to fade away. When digital cameras were designed, the market of negative film no longer existed. When direct market, selling /internet based selling was devised, traditional marketing declined. When wireless internet access was introduced to the world, you now no longer need to turn on your computer at home. When apps like Wechat , WhatsApp are on a rise, traditional text messaging is no longer as popular as before.
“Let’s not play the blame game of who took over whose business”, it’s only because people are more adjustable and adaptable to new ideas and changes in the world.
Please remember that the world will keep changing everyday. If you don’t, you will be left behind. You reap what you sow with your time. If you spend time drinking, you might become an alcoholic. If you spend time to blame, you might become a blamer. If you spend time beautifying yourself, you might become a pretty girl or a handsome guy. If you spend time to stay healthy, you might enjoy a healthy good life. If you spend time being picky, you might become a mean person. If you spend time learning, you might gain wisdom. If you spend time with your family, you might foster a warm and loving relationship with your loved ones.
Remember that your past successes may lead to your future failures and can make the situation upside down. You have to stay alert. However, if you learn the lessons from every failure, then you might ultimately succeed.
Mr. Jack Ma changed himself with time and always tried to become adaptable and never considered himself as a failure despite being rejected for so many times, he constantly learned from every failure and that’s what helped him in becoming a successful entrepreneur. I guess in the end, entrepreneurship cannot really be taught in a school cause there are so many unknown factors which can only be solved by constant analysis and self – inspection.
