For Steve Jobs, life was not all gold and glitters. At birth, he was put up for adoption, later became a college drop out, fired from the company he started and then diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Before his death, he co-founded Apple Inc and by extension credited with revolutionising six key industries; phones, tablet computing, digital publishing, music, personal computer and animated movies.
Despite the odds stacked against him, he went on to have a larger than life personality that influenced and redefined his industry. This was partly due to the fact that he chose to pursue his passion rather than follow the status quo.
In his address to Stanford University Graduates, Steve drew from the lessons of his personal life to inspire those whom he referred to as the new generation – the younger generation. The video below says it all. Like, share and comment on the post as you’re inspired to do.
