STEVE JOBS –A man of failures
Most of us like to use branded garments,accessories and all. When we talk about branded phones the one which strikes our mind is Apple. The founder of Apple is Steve Jobs. He is one of the most successful persons in the world. Before his success, he had a lot of failures and drawbacks. We can learn a lesson from his failures.
Jobs was adopted and lived in a lower-middle class family. At the age of 17,he started going to Reed College which is as expensive as Stanford.He thought of drop out after 6 months. He thought he was wasting his parent’s income. He felt he had no idea about his life and how college is going to help him. As he was dropped, he went to classes which made him interested like Calligraphy.
But after 10 years,he developed the first Macintosh computer which is designed in Mac. It is the first computer which has a beautiful typography. If Steve hasn’t went to calligraphy class,no PC’s will have different font styles. He doesn’t have any idea during his college. But after 10 years, he was able to connect those dots backwards.
“We can’t connect the dots looking forward,you can only connect them looking backwards.”
We should trust that these dots will somehow be connected in our future. We should trust in ourselves and our abilities.
Steve and Woz started Apple at the age of 20 in a garage. After 10 years, it has grown to $2 billion company having 4000 employees. At the age of 30,he was fired from his own company. Even though he is fired, he never stopped doing the things he loves. After next 5 years he started a company named NeXT, later PIXAR. PIXAR has created the world’s first anime feature film,Toy Story. It is one of the best anime feature creations in the world. Apple bought NeXT and Steve is back to Apple.
If Jobs hasn’t fired we won’t have the anime feature films. Do the things you love. Don’t lose faith. If you haven’t found the things you love, keep on looking. Don’t settle.
Every day, Steve stands in front of the mirror and impose question to himself. “If today is the last day of my life,would I want to do what I am about to do today?” For many days, his answer was no. He thought to change something. That’s the way you have to motivate yourself and try to change yourself to the one you want to be.
Steve had a pancreatic cancer. Doctors thought it couldn’t be diagnosed. They have taken some tumour cells of pancreas through endoscope and came to know that this cancer is very rare and can be diagnosed. Steve was cured. Death is only the end of our life. We don’t know the way the death approaches us.
Your time is limited,so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.
Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice.
Always have a zeal to do something in your life. Have confidence in your self. Try to do the work which you love.
“Stay hungry, Stay foolish.”
Steve Jobs who started as an Entrepreneur became a successful person. Everyone can be successful in their lives only when they trust themselves. Have faith on you. Work hard to achieve your goal.
