Do you like to read stories of the successful people? Yes, I do! I have read “The Everything Store – Jeff Bezos” and “Tesla, SpaceX, and the quest for a fantastic future – Elon Musk”. Undeniable Jeff and Elon are FANTASTIC! They are simply outstanding, period. To me what makes them successful is their extraordinary focus, other than the blessing to be sort of genius. They are able to focus 100% on learning, thinking, and executing. So, yeah bravo, but I couldn’t relate myself to them much as I am not a genius in the first place (EXCUSES!!! LOL)
I am thinking to read about someone who is ordinary yet able to achieve great success in life. Then, uncle Jack Ma comes into the picture (NO OFFENCE ok?). Everyone knows Jack Ma – Alibaba, Tao Bao, AliPay, etc. If you don’t know? Please please please google him, ok? lol. So I bought my first paid e-book on my kindle: “Alibaba: The House That Jack Ma Built”, by Duncan Clark.
I got some free time today so I have finished reading 26% of the book already. haha. It means the book is fascinating or I rather say Jack Ma’s is fascinating. I am not going to be a spoiler, but one interesting sharing by Jack Ma captured my attention.
He said: “If there are nine rabbits on the ground, if you want to catch one, just focus on one. Change your tactics if you need to, but don’t change the rabbit. Here are so many opportunities in that you cannot catch all of them. Get one first, put it in your pocket and then catch the others.” This simple Jack Ma Rabbit anecdote teaches us to Focus! Then one after another. If you remember what I have shared earlier on, Jeff and Elon are excellent in focusing too right? This has proven, successful people indeed have the same traits. And if you want to be successful, STAY FOCUSED!
I hope this little post inspire you or remind you of this little thing as we are living in a distractive world. I personally face the challenge to stay focused, my weakness indeed. But if it just takes time and effort to change, I need and shall to do so! Jiayou!
