RepostBy @cleverinvestor: "Many years ago there was a child born in China.
His parents were traditional musician-storytellers. At an early age, He developed a desire to learn English so he rode his bike each morning to a nearby hotel to converse with foreigners. He would guide them around the city for free to practice and improve his English. He did this for nine years.
Later in his youth, and although he failed the university entrance exam three times, he graduated a university with a bachelors in English.
Later on realized there was a problem, he tried searching the word beer on the Internet and not one option was given in Chinese. So he created the China pages.
It failed miserably.
But this is the same man who didn't know a lick of English and graduated with a bachelors in English
So what do you think he did?
He gave the Internet business another shot and created a phenomenal business that boomed!
Through mere perseverance and a strong work ethic he became one of the largest companies in the world.
A kid from China who had to learn English, came over to America after already failing multiple times in life and even being a poor school teacher can build a multi billion dollar empire off of a dollar and a dream the possibilities are endless.
Today Jack Ma founder of Alibaba.com is now worth 21.8 Billion dollars and is the 18th richest man in the world according to Forbes.
Follow your dreams!!! #BeClever"
