When Alibaba founder and CEO Jack Ma was still a teenager, he applied to over 30 jobs and got rejected by all of them. Can you believe that? Today, he owns an e-commerce company that has a value of USD 40 billion. But did you know that Ma didn’t start achieving career success until his 30s?

In life, it's not how much we achieved, it's how much we've gone through the tough days and mistakes," Ma's advice to a group of young leaders during the World Economic Forum annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland. "If you want to be successful, learn from the other people's mistakes, don't learn from the successful stories.

Ma commended that people should always go for prioritizing solidity, family, and the future of the people. You still must think as to how your customers can benefit from your services, not how you can benefit from your customers. He said, “when you’re 40 to 50 years old, my suggestion is you should do things you are good at.”
“When you are 50 to 60 years old, spend time training and developing young people, the next generation,” Ma added. “When you are over 60 years old, you better stay with your grandchildren.” He later said.
Instead of setting your goals and desires based on others’ success stories, Ma is advocating to compete on yourself instead of other people. In that way, you are not stopping other people, and at the same time, you are inspiring others as well. You can do this by imagining what you hope to succeed in 10 years, a method that worked for him.
