Famous People

One famous person who belongs to Character Root Number 3 is Jack Ma (Ma Yun), Founder of Alibaba. If you have read his story, he started building up Alibaba, an e-commerce platform from 1999. He did so with 17 friends where he presented his sales pitch in his apartment in Hangzhou, China. He brought new ideas, believes in teamwork, and dares to be different.

I must say quite frankly, I could not see his temperamental attitude but I suppose you can only feel it if you know him personally. However, I think he nevertheless matches the traits in Character Root Number 3. He was bold in taking action, where he has that vision in knowing that the competition at that time was not in China but America, and in the video above, that was his original sales pitch to his 17 friends.

Jack does not know much about computers and the Internet at that time but he knows its potential and he knows who are the right people and delegates to them appropriately. You can see how he drives them to act and said that the team has to pay a painful price for 3-5 years to be successful, and they cannot be working on an 8 am to 5 pm job basis. Alibaba might never have been successful if the original team did not make that sacrifice.

And he constantly exudes that optimism and is very good at expressing his vision on how Alibaba wants to help small businesses to market their products to the world. His righteous view motivates, attracts, and gives people hope.
