Lessons that youth should learn from Steve Jobs’ life.
Steve Jobs — A name that does not need an introduction, a man who bought a revolution in the world of computers, and a human who went beyond human limits. Steve Paul Jobs was an American business magnate, industrial designer, investor, and media proprietor. Co-founded Apple Inc. He was also the primary investor chairman and founder of Pixar and NeXT. As he said he invested all his life doing what he loved. He is a great inspiration for all young entrepreneurs and dreamers. Young generations will always enfold his enlightenment and his intention in life. And hither few advice and lessons that I have embraced and every youngster and student should learn from Steve Jobs’ life.
“Follow your passion and do what you love — Because there is no reason not to follow your heart.”
What is the finest thing in the world? A human following his passion with whole ambition. Every individual who has reached the peak of success has followed their passion and did what they loved. Everything he said sounded really inspirational. But only courageous and phenomenal people dare to follow their hearts and create history. This is the saying Steve Jobs said about passion in a public appearance alongside Bill Gates.
“People say you have to have a lot of passion for what you are doing and it’s totally true and the reason is that building something of value is so hard that if you don’t, and rational person would give up. It’s really hard. And you have to do it over a sustained period of time.”
“Believe in the process.”
In the time of his Stanford commencement address, Steve Jobs shares a story about connecting the dots. Steve explains how dropping out of college was one of the best decisions of his life. He said “If I had never dropped out I would have never dropped in on calligraphy classes, and personal computers might not have the wonderful typography that they do. Of course, it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college. But it was very, very clear looking backward 10 years later.”
He further advised students, “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something you gut, destiny, life, karma, and whatever. This approach has never let me down and it has made all the difference in my life.”
Just as Steve Jobs we all have to believe in the process and trust that, the dots will surely be connected in the future. We all are struggling with a small or a big battle in our life. And when troubles and summons enter our ways we got disheartened and want to end everything. Nevertheless, we have to believe the saying that “Everything happens in life happens for a reason and the past events of our life anyhow surely connect to future happenings.
“Your time is limited — So don’t waste it living someone else’s life.”
On October 5. 2011, Steve Jobs said goodbye to the world at the age of 56. But he lived all his life pursuing his heart, his passion, and his dreams. Here are the words Steve Jobs said about death and dream, “Remembring that I will be dead soon is the most important tool I have ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life because everything all external expectations, all pride all fear of embarrassment, or failure these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembring that you are going to die soon is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking that you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
Every morning we wake up thinking that we have all the time in the world to do our things. But it is not the truth. The truth that breaks every moment when thousands of people lose their life within seconds. Death is the final destination that everyone has to reach one or another day. So we have to accept the fact that we all have limited time to follow our passion, listen to our hearts, fulfill our dreams, achieve our goals, and challenge our destiny.
“Stay hungry Stay foolish”
What is common in the people — who had great discoveries, who build huge companies, and the ones who designed phenomenal products. Their hunger to create great things. And Steve Jobs’ hunger didi amplify human ability by creating phenomenal apple products as for instance iPhone, iPad, iPod, MacBook, and the rest. And given the advice to the youth.
