馬雲辭職了,留下句句觸動心靈的話 1、馬雲:我最遺憾的錯誤   01年,我犯了一個錯誤,我告訴我的18位共同創業同仁,他們只能做小組經理,而所有的副總裁都得從外面聘請。   現在十年過去了,我從外面聘請的人才都走了,而我之前曾懷疑過其能力的人都成了副總或董事。   我相信兩個信條:態度比能力重要,選擇同樣也比能力重要! 2、馬雲:不能統一人的思想,但可以統一人的目標   千萬不要相信你能統一人的思想,那是不可能的。   30%的人永遠不可能相信你,不要讓你的同事為你幹活,而讓他們為我們的共同目標幹活。   團結在一個共同的目標下,要比團結在一個人周圍容易的多。 3、馬雲提醒:細節好的人格局一般都差   ①有人覺得我牛,6分鐘說服了孫正義,其實是他說服了我。見孫正義之前,我在矽谷至少被拒絕了40次。   ②做企業贏在細節,輸在格局。   ③格局,“格”是人格,“局”是胸懷,細節好的人格局一般都差,格局好的人從來不重細節,兩個都幹好,那叫太有才! 4、馬雲:領導比員工多什麼?   領導永遠不要跟下屬比技能,下屬肯定比你強;如果不比你強,說明你請錯人了。   ①要比眼光:比他看得遠;   ②要比胸懷:領導的胸懷是委屈撐大的,要能容人所不容;   ③要比實力:抗失敗的能力比他強;一個優秀的領導人的素質就是眼光、胸懷和實力。 5、馬雲:中國商人千萬別在“紅道”上混   ①人一輩子要明白錢和權兩個東西是絕對不要碰在一起,當了官永遠不要想有錢,當了商人千萬別想權;   ②錢和權這兩個東西碰在一起就是炸藥和雷管碰在一起,必然要爆炸;   ③胡雪岩的悲哀就在於他是紅頂商人;   ④中國商人千萬別在“紅道”上混。 6、馬雲:年輕人必須思考的4大問題   ①什麼是失敗?放棄就是最大的失敗。   ②什麼叫堅強?經歷許多磨難、委屈、不爽,你才知道什麼叫堅強。   ③你的職責是什麼?比別人多勤奮一點、多努力一點、多一點理想,這就是你的職責。   ④傻瓜用嘴講話,聰明人用腦袋講話,智者用心講話。 7、馬雲:人生在世在做人,不是做事   我跟自己講我們到這個世界上不是來工作的,我們是來享受人生的,我們是來做人不是做事。   如果一輩子都做事的話,忘了做人,將來一定會後悔。   不管事業多成功、多偉大、多了不起,記住我們到這個世界就是享受經歷這個人生的體驗。   忙著做事一定會後悔。 8、馬雲:高手的競爭論   ①一定要爭得你死我活的商戰,是最愚蠢的。   ②眼睛中全是敵人,外面就全是敵人。   ③競爭的時候不要帶仇恨,帶仇恨一定失敗。   ④競爭樂趣就像下棋一樣,你輸了,我們再來過,兩個棋手不能打架。   ⑤真正做企業是沒有仇人的,心中無敵,天下無敵。 9、馬雲:別把抱怨當習慣   人是退化最嚴重的動物。跟獸比人很“弱肢”,和狗比人很“聞盲”,但人類“進化”了抱怨。   偶爾為之無大礙,但當抱怨成習慣,就如喝海水,喝的越多渴得越厲害。   最後發現,走在成功路上的,都是些不抱怨的“傻子們”。   世界不會記得你說了什麼,但一定不會忘記你做了什麼! 10、馬雲給初創企業者的忠告   ①大家看不清的機會,才是真正的機會。   ②讓員工笑著幹活。   ③客戶第一、員工第二、股東第三。   ④搶在變化之前先變。   ⑤忘掉money,忘掉賺錢。   ⑥小聰明不如傻堅持。   ⑦心態決定姿態,姿態決定狀態。 11、馬雲談創業   ①一個好的東西往往是說不清楚的,說得清楚的往往不是好東西!   ②創業要找最合適的人,不一定要找最成功的人。   ③這世界最不可靠的東西就是關係。   ④免費是世界上最昂貴的東西。   ⑤今天很殘酷,明天更殘酷,後天很美好。 12、馬雲“四不”創業智慧   ①創業最怕就是看不見,看不起,看不懂,跟不上;   ②看不見對手在哪裡,看不起對手,看不懂對手為什麼可以變得那麼強,然後就跟不上了;   ③即使對手很弱小,也一定要把對方看的很強大,即使對手很強大,也不一定要把自己看的很弱小。 13、馬雲當你決定要創業時   便意味著:   ①沒有了穩定的收入;②沒有了請假的權利;③沒有了得紅包的機會。   然而卻更意味著:   ①收入不再受限制;②時間運用更有效;③手心向下不求人。   想法若不同,結果便不同;選擇不一樣,生活才變樣。 14、馬雲談機會   如果一個方案有90%的人說“好”的話,我一定要把它扔到垃圾桶裡去。   因為這麼多人說好的方案,必然有很多人在做了,機會肯定不會是我們的了。 引用:http://mp.weixin.qq.com/mp/appmsg/show?__biz=MjM5NzQ5NTA2NA%3D%3D&appmsgid=10000027&itemidx=1&sign=a8a447b7b65c852a758fb7ccbe883709&scene=2&from=timeline&isappinstalled=0&uin=MTAwNTI3NTcwMQ%3D%3D ----------------------------------------------------------------- 感謝讀友分享 生命空缺用閱讀補足 http://www.facebook.com/read.life
