I recently came across a video by Ma Yun, who is known professionally as Jack Ma.
Yes, he is the founder and presently sits as chairman of the Alibaba Group, with a personal networth of $24 billion.
And yes, he had something to say about poor people.
The worst people to serve are the poor people. Give them free, they think it’s a trap. Tell them it’s a small investment, they’ll say it can’t possibly earn much. Tell them to come in big, they’ll say no money.
Tell them try new things, they’ll say no experience. Tell them it’s traditional business, they’ll say hard to do. Tell them it’s a new business model, they’ll say it’s MLM.
Tell them to run a shop, they’ll say no freedom. Tell them run new business, they’ll say no expertise.
They do have some things in common, they love to ask google, and listen to friends who are as hopeless as them. They think more than a university professor and do [far] less…
Just ask them, what can they do. They won’t be able to answer you. My conclusion: Instead of your heart beats faster, why not you just act faster a bit; instead of just thinking about it, why not do something about it. Poor people fail because of one common behaviour: their whole life is about waiting.
These words are instructive. Think on them.
