“Don’t think too big, start with something small, and you love it”, Billionaire Alibaba Jack Ma said in Hanoi [BASIC]

On Monday afternoon, Jack Ma had a speech to 3,000 students at the Vietnam E-Payment Forum about his experiences in e-commerce and mobile payment in Hanoi. He had many 

inspired quotes and here are some of them:

“If you learn from mistakes, you’ll be stronger, more realistic. You see all the mistakes, the failures, and you still want to fight for the future. It is not the success but the moment I failed that shaped me. This makes us even stronger.”

“The only thing I do is never give up; most people give up. If you give up, no chance. If you don’t give up, you still have a chance.” 

“Don’t think too big, start with something small and you love it. When you want to become an entrepreneur think about what you will sacrifice.”

“Nobody is superman. It is not you who makes the team succeed. It is the team that makes you succeed. There is always a way out, always a solution for the future and tomorrow. You may not have it, but you have to find it out with the team.”

“Like it or not, the world is moving to a noncash payment era. When society is a cashless society, everything is digitalized, everything is transparent. No one can run away.”
