1. Steve Jobs lived when he said, “Follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path. And that will make all the difference.”
“You can’t connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backwards. So you’ve to trust that the dots will some how connect in your future.
You’ve to trust in something: your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path. And that will make all the difference.”
2. Steve Jobs lived when he said about being fired from Apple, “Sometimes life is going to hit you in a head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.”
“It was awful testing medicine, but I guess the patient needed it…Sometimes life is going to hit you in a head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that’s as true for work as it is for your lovers.
Your work is going to fill a large part of your life and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.
If you’ve not found it yet, keep looking and don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking, don’t settle.”
3. Steve Jobs lived when he said, “You got to love it…you got to have PASSION.”
“People say you’ve to have a lot of passion for what you’re doing, and it is totally true. And the reason is because it is so hard that if you don’t, any rational person would give up. It’s really hard and you have to do it over a sustained period of time. So, if you don’t love it, if you don’t have fun doing it, you’re going to give up.
And that what happens to most people actually. If you really look at the ones that ended up being successful in the eyes of society and the ones who didn’t, often times it is the ones who are successful love what they did, so that they could persevere when it got really tough. And the ones that didn’t love it, quit because they are sane! Who would want to put up with this stuff if you don’t love it.
So, it is a lot of hard work and it is a lot of worrying constantly. And if you don’t love it, you’re going to fail. So, you got to love it…you got to have PASSION.”
4. Steve Jobs lived when he revealed the quote that changed his life: “If you live each day as if it was your last, some day you’ll most certainly be right”
“For the past 33 years, I’ve looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself, ‘if today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I’m about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘NO’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”
5. Steve Jobs lived when he said, “Things just fall away in the face of death leaving only what’s truly important.”
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost 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’s truly important.”
6. Steve Jobs lived when he said, “You’re already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
“Remembering that you’re going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you’ve something to lose. You’re already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
7. Steve Jobs lived when he said, “Death is very likely the single best invention of life.”
“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet, death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that’s as it should be, because death is very likely the single best invention of life.
It’s life change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you. But someday, not too long from now, you’ll gradually become the old and be cleared away.”
8. Steve Jobs lived when he said, “Have the courage to follow your heart …Everything else is secondary.”
“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, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
9. Steve Jobs lived when he discovered the future with his “i” innovations.
That’s: iPod, iPhone, iPad, iCloud.
10. Steve Jobs lived when he said, “Stay Hungry…Stay Foolish”
As it has been shared in all social media today, “3 Apples changes the world. Adam and Eve’s forbidden apple, Newton’s apple, and finally, Steve Jobs’ Apple” — That’s because Steve Jobs was HUNGRY!
Most people live to die, but very few die to live.
Steve Jobs’ body is dead, but his spirit & legacy will live in the hearts of one generation after the other, for as long as life on earth will continue.
Rest In Peace Mr. Jobs…
Today, you’ve made history.
Today, everyone says, “iHope”
Today, everyone discovered your secret innovation called, “iPassion”
