Likewise, the richest people on the planet built their fortunes from scratch and it depicts their never give up attitude and commitment towards achieving their goals. Jack Ma (Founder and ex CEO Alibaba group) is a perfect example of an individual motivated to never give up on his pursuit of success. His struggles are well documented and he is a perfect example of a man who went from rags to riches with hard work and perseverance.
In contrast, wealth is not always a parameter for being successful.
