"Your life is limited so don't waste it living someone else's life"
"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."
Steve Jobs– Stanford University commencement address, 1995.
I memory of Steve Jobs who passed into spirit last week I wanted to share his poignant video in which he gives a speech to the Stanford University Graduating Class Titled " How to Live Before You Die"
Great insight into some of his story with lessons we can all use in our own life and business.
What I take away from this video is:
-to do what I love even if it doesn't make sense
-take the risk now, I have nothing to loose
-live my life not someone elses
-life is short, make it count and make the big choices now
Imagine being fired from a company that you founded….now if he can face that embarrassment (as he calls it) and still come out on top…..what are you inspired to face.
Watch and give me your comments.
