Steve Jobs Trusted His Vision

Steve Jobs – What Did The Worlds Smartest, Richest And Most Successful Man Have To Say About You?

Memorable Quote From Steve Jobs

"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 is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. ... Stay hungry. Stay foolish."

— Stanford University commencement address, June 2005.

Are You Blind And You Don’t Know It?

Steve Jobs trusted his vision, even when nobody else was seeing what he was seeing.  He put all of his effort behind it and held back nothing.  There are plenty of excuses he could have used: he was adopted, dropped out of school, focused on developing products for a nonexistent market, and then had to create that market.

Steve Gets Knocked Down, But Not Knocked OUT!

Memorable Quote From Steve Jobs

"It’s 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."
