About Jack Ma's Height or Lack Thereof

Chinese are growing fast but Jack Ma isn’t, but only physically -- monetarily, he is still growing.

Though we are sure that Jack Ma has enough money to leg-length himself into a 7 feet stature (though he would stilt-legged for sure).

Anyway, Jack Ma’s height is listed as either 5 feet 3 inches or 4 feet 11 ½ inches on most of the internet – Well, truth to be told, Jack looks like someone below the 5 feet mark. He looks close foot shorter than a 6 feet 1½” inch tall Elon Musk.

But surprisingly Jack isn’t as short as he looks.

Perhaps Jack's slender appearance and his weirdly shaped head makes him look shorter than he really is.

But after taking a careful look at Jack Ma, we believe that he is at least 5 feet 4 inches tall – he certainly looks so when he stands next to a 5 feet 5½ inches tall Manny Pacquaio or an almost 5'8" Tom Cruise.

The real height of Jack Ma is

5 ft 3½ in (161 cm)

Jack Ma on globalization.

We should keep on going along the path of globalization. Globalization is good... when trade stops, war comes.

The most important thing.

The very important thing you should have is patience.

On success.

Success and profitability are outcomes of focusing on customers and employees, not objectives.

On the experience.

No matter what one does, regardless of failure or success, the experience is a form of success in itself.

On not giving up.

If you don't give up, you still have a chance. And when you are small, you have to be very focused and rely on your brain, not your strength.

On the young generation.

I think young generation is always better than last generation. No matter you like it or don't like it. My father said, 'Jack, I'm so good, you'll never be' - but I'm better than him. My father is better than my grandfather. My children will be better than us.

Jack Ma's ultimate advice.

Once in your life, try something. Work hard at something. Try to change. Nothing bad can happen.

On failure.

It doesn't matter if I failed. At least I passed the concept on to others. Even if I don't succeed, someone will succeed.

On business.

Never ever compete on prices, instead compete on services and innovation.

On perception.

If you view everyone as your enemies, everyone around you will be your enemies.

On trying.

If you've never tried, how will you ever know if there's any chance?

On real opportunities.

The opportunities that everyone cannot see are the real opportunities.

On young people.

Help young people. Help small guys. Because small guys will be big. Young people will have the seeds you bury in their minds, and when they grow up, they will change the world.
