Early Life

Jack Ma, early life

Today is Hard, Tomorrow will be Worse, But the Day after Tomorrow will be Sunshine. - Jack Ma.

Jack Ma was born on 10th September 1964 in China. He started learning English at a very early age. He faced many failures in his life since childhood and was considered as a failure guy. He used to live a demotivated life since childhood and consistently used to get away from the steps of success. But he never gave up, and to learn and practice English at the age of 9 years, he used to travel 27 kilometers on his bicycle to guide tourists, and later he became pen pals with a foreigner and got nicknamed Jack as the Chinese name, which was a bit difficult for him to pronounce.

In his adulthood too he was getting a failure at every stage of his life. The Chinese entrance exams were cleared by Mr. Jack for three years, and later he got admission to the college. He completed his graduation in BA with English honors and later wanted to start teaching the same subject, but he used to get extreme rejection from all the places where he used to go for interviews. Many other people used to get selected and many times he used to be the only person who used to face rejection. Rejection breaks the trust and self-esteem of a person. But Jack Ma never used to lose his hope.

But when the world says give up, success says to try out once, this is a bonanza. He faced failures several times since his school times. His career too was associated with failures. He always got disappointed in several places. But Mr. Jack was well versed in the English language, so later he got a job as a lecturer in a college. He also worked as a translator for some days.
