19. Jack Ma
Jack Ma grew up in a low-income family. It was an ordeal for his parents to put two meals on the table every day. When he grew up, he tried his hands on many things, only to find failure.
He was rejected by many universities and at numerous job interviews. However, he never stopped trying. Finally, he found success in harvesting the power of the internet. He ended up founding Alibaba.com, and the rest is history.
Jack Ma says, “If you’ve never tried, how will you know if there’s any chance.” The Chinese billionaire believes that exploring new opportunities is the way to ultimate success.
