Billionaire Jack Ma teaches you how to be successful in life and business - Vulcan Post | Better My Career | Scoop.it

InterBillionaire Jack Ma, the founder and ex-CEO of Alibaba Group, as well as one of the most successful Chinese Internet entrepreneurs, shares his wealth of experiences. Jack Ma: The mistake I regretted the most In 2001, I made a mistake. I told 18 of my fellow comrades whom embarked on the entrepreneurship journey with me that the highest positions they could go was a managerial role. To fill all our Vice President and Senior Executive positions, we would have to hire from external parties. Years later, those I hired were gone, but those whom I doubted their abilities became Vice Presidents or Directors. I believe in two principles: Your attitude is more important than your capabilities. Similarly, your decision is more important than your capabilities! Jack Ma: You cannot unify everyone’s thoughts, but you can unify everyone through a common goal. Don’t even trust that you are able to unify what everyone is thinking; it is impossible. 30% of all people will never believe you. Do not allow your colleagues and employees to work for you. Instead, let them work for a common goal. It is a lot easier to unite the company under a common goal rather than uniting ...

Take 15 minutes today and watch this talk.  Your future self will thank you!  Isn't that right Jizelle?  (She said Yes!)

Brett Baughman's curator insight, February 26, 3:23 PM

If you don't know what TED Talks are yet; you should!

 

In my opinion, TED Talks are the most powerful outlet available today for brilliant minds to unite & innovate our world with ideas that will produce positive change.  If we want to grow as a society & evolve we must engage in activities that challenge our minds to think differently; and to envision greater goods, greater outcomes.

 

TED Talks are doing a phenomenal job of inspiring & educating their audiences to create, collaborate & develop new ways of living; new ways of achieving.

 

People always ask me where is a good point to start with personal development.  TED Talks are perfect.  Each talk is limited to less than 20 minutes so that everyone has time to enjoy them and can't use the old excuse of being too busy.

 

I challenge everyone to ask themselves the question "Am I living the life that I designed?" or "Am I living a life that was engineered by someone else?"  Are you producing the quality of life you desire?

 

TED Talks cover just about every topic.  Search their site for a category you enjoy & have fun expanding the way you think and creating new ideas.

 

If you have questions about personal development or you would like more information about the coaching services offered by The Brett Baughman Companies, Inc. please visit our website at http://www.brettbaughman.com
