“If today was the last day of my life would I want to do what I’m about to do today?”- Steve Jobs.
When I started “Imagination Breathing”, I wanted someone ,something to inspire me,so that I can inspire others through my work. I came across his talk on youtube he delivered at a commencement ceremony in Stanford university(2005). This truly inspired me and fear of failure started taking a back seat in my life. As of today blog- “Imagination Breathing” has been viewed in 92 countries in just five months. Thank’s to “wordpress” for giving me a platform and thanks to Steve Job’s for his wise words.May his soul rest in peace.
Wise words of Steve Jobs. Hope they inspire you too…
1.You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
2.If you don’t love something, you’re not going to go the extra mile, work the extra weekend, challenge the status quo as much.
3.Here’s to the crazy ones — the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.
4.Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
5.Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.
6.That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.
