Here is a list of all the possible list of quotes which are full of wisdom by Mr. Jack Ma
You need the right people with you, not the best people.
No matter how tough the chase is, you should always have the dream you saw on the first day. It’ll keep you motivated and rescue you (from any weak thoughts).

I try to make myself happy because I know that if I’m not happy, my colleagues are not happy and my shareholders are not happy and my customers are not happy.
If you don’t give up, you still have a chance. Giving up is the greatest failure.
I don’t want people (in China) to have deep pockets but shallow minds.
You never know how much can you do in your life.
You never know that the things you’re doing are that meaningful to society.
You’ve to make consumers smart. An e-commerce portal doesn’t sell a product at cheaper rates, instead an offline shop sells it at a costlier prices.

You’ve got to make your team have value, innovation, and vision.
When you are small, you have to be very focused and rely on your brain, not your strength.

A peace talk is always difficult, always complicated.
You should learn from your competitor , but never copy. Copy and you die.
If the customer loves you, the government will have to love you.
Intelligent people need a fool to lead them. When the team’s all a bunch of scientists, it is best to have a peasant lead the way. His way of thinking is different. It’s easier to win if you have people seeing things from different perspectives.
We should never finish a 20-year program in two years.
When we have money, we start making mistakes.

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
What is that one little story that can bring change to your life. So that you can focus more on being a successful person.?
There may be many many answers, long story short. This is how I frame it.
Few sentences from the Richest person in China Mr. Jack Ma which may trigger this change.
Jack Ma says, “Please tell your children that the world is changing every day and no one is going to wait for you in the past. When lighter was invented, matches slowly disappeared. When calculator was created, abacus was to fade away. When digital camera was designed, the market of negative film no longer existed. When direct market selling/internet-based selling arises, traditional marketing declines. When smartphone with 4G (wireless internet access) was introduced to the world, you no longer need to turn on your computer at home. When WeChat and WhatsApp (mobile text/voice/video messaging) are developed, traditional text messaging is no longer as popular as before.
Let’s not to blame “Who took over Whose business.” It’s only because people are more adjustable and adaptable to new ideas and changes in the world.
Someone asks Jack Ma, “What is your secret for success?” He says, “Really simple…I am doing (action) while you’re only watching.”
Please remember that the world keeps changing every day. If you don’t change, you’ll be left behind. You reap what you sow with your time. If you spend time to drink, you may become an alcoholic. If you spend time to complain, you may become a blamer. If you spend time to beautify yourself, you may become a pretty girl/handsome guy. If you spend time to stay healthy, you may enjoy a healthy good life. If you spend time to be picky, you may become a ‘mean’ person. If you spend time to learn, you may gain wisdom. If you spend time with your family, you may foster a warm and loving relationship with your loved ones.
