Steve Jobs was a really successfull man both in his life and at his
job. Some people may call it luck but the thing that made him
successfull was not luck, it was fighting and never giving up for
what you believed. To inspire people to never give up, Steve
Jobs taught a lot of life lessons in Stanford.
First of all, Steve Jobs taught the students about connecting the
dots. This was the first part of his speech and basically he
explained that people have many choices in life and every
single choice you make in your life connects together to create
your future. Also in this speech he motivated the audience by
telling them that if they did something in life that they really
wanted, they would probably be successfull. He was successfull
in creating the Macintosh because he learned the things that he
wanted to learn. He dropped out of college to take calligraphy
lessons because that was what he really wanted to do in his life.
This has made a major difference in his life. You must believe in
something to be successfull.
The second important thing Steve Jobs told was about love and
loss. When he was creating the first Macintosh he really loved
what he was doing. He found someone really talented and they
shared the Apple company but someday they had an argument.
When an important leader sided against Steve Jobs, he was
fired from Apple. In the first few months he did not know what
to do. He was hopeless but suddenly he realized that he loved
what he was doing and that is why no matter what, he would
continue doing it.He was so successfull that he created his own
company (again) called NEXT and then he created PIXAR, which
was the most successfull animation studio, but the point was
that being fired from Apple could not stop him from doing what
he loved. So basically he told people to never stop doing the
thing they love to do.
The third and last statement he made was about death. He read
a quote that said “If you live everyday as if it’s your last day,
one day you will certainly be right.” For Steve Jobs death was
something that every humanbeing shared. He was so close to
death because he had cancer and he thought he had six
months to live and that’s when he realized that life had so many
meanings. It was a never ever ending cycle with the old and the
young. After a while he understood that this was a rare type of
cancer and it could be cured. He understood that you got to live
every single day like it’s the only one and always think if
tomorrow never comes.
Steve Jobs had many inspirations during his lifetime; he did the
thing that he loved and that made him successfull in his life. In
this speech he tried to explain that when you got something to
believe you should never give up until the end and you should
do the thing that you really want to do.
