However, the story didn’t complete its circle of truth as Amazon is currently one of the largest companies in the world with a valuation of over USD 1.6 trillion. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos recently took to Twitter to share a message of positivity along with a picture of the magazine describing how critics will always try to put down the confidence of those who want to build something. He shared a major key to tackling such condemnation.

“Listen and be open, but don’t let anybody tell you who you are. This was just one of the many stories telling us all the ways we were going to fail. Today, Amazon is one of the world’s most successful companies and has revolutionized two entirely different industries,” Bezos captioned the post.

The post has gone crazy viral with over 41,000 likes and various reactions. But the comment that grabbed the most limelight was that of Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.

He commented on Bezos’ post with a silver medal. Earlier this year, Musk had surpassed Bezos as the richest man on Earth and the comment was probably a friendly jibe towards the Amazon CEO.

Netflix co-founder Reed Hastings also commented on the inspiring post by Bezos. Along with that, here are some other reactions.

The deeper the doubts, the sweeter the success. https://t.co/dgrbu6yB3d

Congratulations on all of the ingenuity and hard work you put forth to make Amazon the success that it isI can’t imagine the sacrifices that you had to make to achieve this type of success - bravo!

This is epic. Be aware of yourself and your surroundings. Most importantly, be laser focused on your customers. The journey is yours. Rest will be history. #startups #Entrepreneurship https://t.co/fyRXMztpmS
