  • Young people are the solutions for tomorrow.

  • Young people are the solutions for all the worries.

  • Young people, if you stay with them, you will be full of energetic (energy).

  • But the advice I give to the young people is also the advice I give to myself.

  • That nothing is easy.

  • Nothing is free.

  • If you want to be successful, you have to pay the price.

  • (It took) Alibaba 18 years to (get to) today's size, yeah we are lucky, but we work much harder than most of the people.

  • We never sleep well and sound in the evening.

  • I traveled last year 867 hours a year, in the plane.

  • I'm working hard, my team work(s) very hard.

  • 18 years we work like (what a) normal company (would do in) 70 years.

  • Day and night.

  • Nothing is free.

  • Nothing is easy.

  • You have to think different (differently), you have to do different (differently).

  • (In the) early days in my company, when some ideas come to my desk, "Jack this a great idea!"

  • And I look at everybody, everybody say it is a good idea, I normally threw it into the rubbish.

  • Because everybody says it is good.

  • Then all the other people thinking, if everybody says this is gonna be very tough, I'm very interested in that tough question.

  • And I pick up and say, "How can we do it in a different way?"

  • This is to be unique, to be different.

  • And the third, this is my advice and this is also (what) I'm telling myself every day.

  • Today is very tough, tomorrow is more (sic) tougher, the day after tomorrow is beautiful, but most people die tomorrow evening.

  • You have to work very hard, every tough day, every tough situation, problems you meet, that is the training of yourself.

  • When you graduate in (from) your school, you just started your career of learning.

  • When you got a PhD diploma, a bachelor diploma, this is just a certificate (that) your parents paid the tuition for four years.

  • Your real challenge is when you leave the college, the real life starts, the real exam starts, the real test starts.

  • That's life!

  • One thing you are lucky as I said, if students cannot survive, 99.9 percent of people in the world cannot survive.

  • Only (if) you have this confidence, you will be able to face the challenge of future.

  • If you (are) 20 to 30 years old, please find a good boss, not necessarily a good company, learn from the boss, learn how to do it.

  • When you're 30 to 40 years old, try to do something yourself, if you really wanna try.

  • When you're 40 to 50 years old, do things that you are good at, after 20 years of learning you should do something you're good at.

  • When you're 50 to 60 years old, spend your time supporting young people.

  • When you are over 60 years old, spend time with your grandchildren.

  • That is normally a lot of people like that.

  • When you are a graduate or when you're just in the university, don't think about,

  • "I want (to) resign from the school and be another Bill Gates, because Bill Gates left Harvard."

  • There's only one Bill Gates in the world.

  • When you graduate find a company, most important find a good boss, that can train you, discipline you.

  • Tell you what is good and right.

  • It's more important than a good company.

  • Of course, a good company, a good boss (is) even better.

  • And then, continue your life.

  • It's all about the partner.

Young people are the solutions for tomorrow.
