Jack Ma is not just one of the richest men in China but in the entire world as well. He is the founder of Alibaba Group, one of the most prominent e-commerce consortia today on the Internet. But did you know? That this billionaire didn’t have a wealthy father or a good education? He has hard work and dedication. Nevertheless, his persistence has made him the Bill Gates of Asia. And to this, he responds: “Bill Gates and I have nothing in common. There is only one similarity.
It’s that both of us are handsome men”. And we couldn’t agree more right? Maybe you think that Jack Ma always gets what he wants. That is not true. He tried to enter three prestigious Universities in his birth city, Hangzhou but failed. He also applied to Harvard 10 times and failed ten times as well.

Do you want to know he succeeded in business? Here are his five tips and advice on finding opportunities:

1) If you can't find a Good Job, Create it Yourself.

“Complaining doesn’t help anything,” according to him. And continuing: “all successful entrepreneurs out there such as Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Jack Welch, Larry Page, and Mark Zuckerberg are optimists with a mission. They never complain, and instead of being negative over things, they believed in their capabilities. They believed that they could achieve success. They always try to resolve the problems of the rest”. Don’t just complain, find answers to your complaints; always think positively. Failure arrives when you give up.

2) When people are complaining, look for opportunities

Jack Ma is very well-known for his ability to find solutions for people’s problems. Did we hear him complain? Never, because he believed that complaints would not make us successful, but rather miserable. It’s what he did himself. He saw the small traders complaining about not being able to sell their products abroad, and he used the Internet to resolve this problem. It worked, right? According to him, providing services just for you to gain money is not the proper way to become successful. He believed that when you genuinely help the people solve their problems through your services, that’s a real success.

3) Make sure you know what you are doing, and be with a team that cares for everyone

For Jack Ma, it is very important to work with people who believe in the Project and who believe in each other. For this reason, it’s also fair that you tell your people what you want to do precisely, including your plans and goals for the company. Because you’re not the only one working, It’s a team, and they have the right to know what’s happening in the business. Believe in your dreams and convince the group that it’s possible to reach them is the fastest way to achieve success. He added, “It doesn’t matter what the investors think; it doesn’t matter what your parents think, it doesn’t matter what your friends think, you believe it, your team has to believe it and work on it day and night.”

4) Being Innovative and Hard Working is important

Originality is fundamental in the industry today. So, make sure your company stands out from the rest. For Jack Ma, capacity isn’t everything. The decisions that are taken with an innovative sense are the most important. Again, try not to be negative and always look at the brighter side of the picture. How can you make a difference? How can your company make a difference? Or is there anything that can be done differently? It’s necessary to think about these when your planning to start a business because it can help you decide what type of business are you planning to establish. When it comes to hard work, in 1999, when Alibaba Empire was still a Project, Jack Ma told his team: “If we have that kind of 8am-to-5pm spirit, then we should just go and do something else”.

5) Don't think about the opportunities that are already spent

For him, opportunities always exist; you just have to look for them carefully. You only need to know how to discover it. He believes that the Internet can help people in business and aspiring entrepreneurs to achieve success in no time. Why? Because people nowadays are spending too much time on their gadgets. They prefer to sit at home in front of a computer than go outside. And believe it or not, you can already order, shop and sell too. Always study, always explore new things and always discover new ideas. These are the best ways to study how business works.
