Self Development

Have you ever been rejected 30 times?

Imagine trying to get a job for a record of 30 times, and every single time you were turned down, what would you do?

Will you give up or keep trying?

A very successful entrepreneur, Jack Ma, founder of says you should NEVER give up.

Here’s his story:

He applied for college twice, and failed.

He applied for jobs up to 30 times, including KFC, and was turned down. Actually he was the only one who was rejected out of 24 people.

At this point, you’d think he was jinxed, right?

He didn’t care. He finally got  job as a teacher, earning peanuts. But he loved his job and didn’t worry much about the meager pay.

When he tried to get into Harvard, he was rejected 10 times. Whew!

For many people, this would have been the end of the road. They would throw in the towel. But not Jack Ma!

When the internet became a thing in China, he was fascinated by it.

His first two ventures failed. Eventually he called 17 people and shared the idea of, where wholesalers can sell their products directly to retailers and customers. That idea became a huge success.

Jack Ma is presently worth over $29billion!

If this doesn’t motivate you to get up and make your dreams happen no matter what, then I don’t know what else will.
