Steve Jobs words to motivate you

Steve Jobs motivation, steve jobs, steve jobs interview,steve jobs stanford speech
    Wouldn't it be nice if Steve Jobs was there to motivate you.Motivation is a very important in todays world. So much tension,stress, competition etc. all these things might lead you to failure and bring with it sadness, debt,monetary problem etc..Well we cannot change what has happened steve jobs passed away on  5 October 2011.Throughly the world has lost a very important gem who was innovative, optimist, a positive thinker, visionary and many words which are still incomplete to describe him truly . Even if we have lost the person we still have his words with us. His words say all the things what he was Basically his Stanford speech of 2005 was one of the best speeches in the world. We all might have heard about his speech and have remembered only some things of it. Let me guess what would you have remembered it will be" Do what you love, Love what you do "and the other will be  " Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish." And there are those who might remember that "You cannot connect the dots looking forward you can connect them looking backwards. You have to believe in yourself your life,gut,destiny, karma."

Well the important thing about this is the whole speech was important and it will truly be very useful in all our life during the period of up and downs, during the period where we need help, support, we need someone to hold us and keep caring about us.Just imagine a life where you parents put you up for adoption, where you wanna do something but you cannot feel anything interested in it,a life where you build up a billion dollar company and you are only removed from it, a life where some people don't like you and some people do, a life where your girlfriend claim that its your child that too after you build up a big company..

Truly living such a life need a lot of confidence and motivation to do what you want to do. Enough with his explanation let me make you aware of those things which steve jobs spoke and you might have forgotten with the passage of time.

First of all I think You Must Watch the Steve Jobs Stanford Commencement address of 2005:
The above video is full length video from the start where steve jobs introduction is given by President John Hennessy of Stanford university. The words of President john describes steve jobs struggle, his ad campaign, his idea and which I feel important to describe him.

His speech in words:
I am honored to be with you today at your Commencement (speech) , from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I've ever gotten to a college graduation [1]. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That's it. No big deal. Just three stories.[2]
The first story is about connecting the dots. I dropped out of Reed College after the first 6 months, but then stayed around as a drop-in (meaning: mostly students are given chance to choose another stream/courses which they feel is proper for them and get demo lecture also) for another 18 months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop out? 
It started before I was born. My biological mother(meaning: real mother who gave him birth) was a young, unwed(meaning: single) college graduate student, and she decided to put me up for adoption. She felt very strongly that I should be adopted by college graduates, so everything was all set for me to be adopted at birth by a lawyer and his wife(the first couple who decided him to adopt steve jobs). Except that when I popped out they decided at the last minute that they really wanted a girl. So my parents,(the actual couple who adopted him) who were on a waiting list, got a call in the middle of the night asking: "We have an unexpected baby boy; do you want him?" They said: "Of course." My biological mother later found out that my mother(his mother who adopted her) had never graduated from college and that my father had never graduated from high school. She refused to sign the final adoption papers. She only relented(changed her mind) a few months later when my parents promised that I would someday go to college.
And 17 years later I did go to college. But I naively(meaning: unknowingly, lack of experience) chose a college that was almost as expensive as Stanford,[3] and all of my working-class parents' savings were being spent on my college tuition. After six months, I couldn't see the value in it. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and no idea how college was going to help me figure it out.[4] And here I was spending all of the money my parents had saved their entire life. So I decided to drop out and trust that it would all work out OK.[5] It was pretty scary at the time, but looking back it was one of the best decisions I ever made. The minute I dropped out I could stop taking the required classes that didn't interest me, and begin dropping in on the ones that looked interesting.
It wasn't all romantic. I didn't have a dorm
(meaning: a large sleeping room containing many beds, bedroom) room, so I slept on the floor in friends' rooms, I returned coke bottles for the 5¢ deposits to buy food with, and I would walk the 7 miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple.(meaning: Hindu's god whose temple build in america where they serve free food once in a week for everyone) I loved it. And much of what I stumbled(meaning: loose balance) into by following my curiosity and intuition turned out to be priceless later on. Let me give you one example:
Reed College at that time offered perhaps the best calligraphy(meaning: a beautiful way to write handwriting ) instruction in the country. Throughout the campus every poster, every label on every drawer, was beautifully hand calligraphed. Because I had dropped out and didn't have to take the normal classes, I decided to take a calligraphy class to learn how to do this. I learned about serif(meaning: typefaces, font) and san serif typefaces, about varying the amount of space between different letter combinations, about what makes great typography(meaning: The art or process of setting and arranging types,fonts and printing from them.) great. It was beautiful, historical, artistically subtle in a way that science can't capture, and I found it fascinating. [6]
None of this had even a hope of any practical application in my life. But ten years later, when we were designing the first Macintosh computer, it all came back to me. And we designed it all into the Mac(macintosh). It was the first computer with beautiful typography. If I had never dropped in on that single course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts. And since Windows just copied the Mac[7], it's likely that no personal computer would have them. If I had never dropped out, I would have never dropped in on this calligraphy class, and personal computers might not have the wonderful typography that they do. Of course it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college. But it was very, very clear looking backwards ten years later.
you can't connect the dots 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.

My second story is about love and loss. 
 I was lucky — I found what I loved to do early in life. Woz(steve wozniak) and I started Apple in my parents garage when I was 20. We worked hard, and in 10 years Apple had grown from just the two of us in a garage into a $2 billion company with over 4000 employees. We had just released our finest creation — the Macintosh — a year earlier, and I had just turned 30. And then I got fired. How can you get fired from a company you started? Well, as Apple grew we hired someone who I thought was very talented to run the company with me, and for the first year or so things went well. But then our visions of the future began to diverge and eventually we had a falling out. When we did, our Board of Directors sided with him. So at 30 I was out. And very publicly(everybody knew about him) out. What had been the focus of my entire adult life was gone, and it was devastating. I really didn't know what to do for a few months. I felt that I had let the previous generation of entrepreneurs(businessman) down - that I had dropped the baton(it is the bar which is used in running races where many players participate in same team "for more google it") as it was being passed to me. I met with David Packard and Bob Noyce(robert noyce) and tried to apologize for screwing up so badly. I was a very public failure, and I even thought about running away from the valley. But something slowly began to dawn(came to mind slowly) on me — I still loved what I did. The turn of events at Apple had not changed that one bit. I had been rejected, but I was still in love. And so I decided to start over. I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again,[8] less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life. During the next five years, I started a company named NeXT, another company named Pixar, and fell in love with an amazing woman who would become my wife. Pixar went on to create the worlds first computer animated feature film, Toy Story, and is now the most successful animation studio in the world. In a remarkable turn of events, Apple bought NeXT, I returned to Apple, and the technology we developed at NeXT is at the heart of Apple's current renaissance.(meaning: The culture and style of art and architecture developed during the era) And Laurene and I have a wonderful family together. I'm pretty sure none of this would have happened if I hadn't been fired from Apple. It was awful tasting medicine, but I guess the patient needed it. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle. 

 My third story is about death.
When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: "If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right."[9] It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: "If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been "No" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.[10] 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. About a year ago I was diagnosed(positive) with cancer. I had a scan at 7:30 in the morning, and it clearly showed a tumor on my pancreas. I didn't even know what a pancreas was.[11] The doctors told me this was almost certainly a type of cancer that is incurable, and that I should expect to live no longer than three to six months. My doctor advised me to go home and get my affairs in order, which is doctor's code for prepare to die. It means to try to tell your kids everything you thought you'd have the next 10 years to tell them in just a few months. It means to make sure everything is buttoned up(to get ready) so that it will be as easy as possible for your family. It means to say your goodbyes. I lived with that diagnosis all day. Later that evening I had a biopsy(check), where they stuck an endoscope(device to check cancer) down my throat, through my stomach and into my intestines, put a needle into my pancreas and got a few cells from the tumor. I was sedated (not in normal senses), but my wife, who was there, told me that when they viewed the cells under a microscope(device to see extremely small particles,cells) the doctors started crying because it turned out to be a very rare form of pancreatic cancer that is curable(which can be cured) with surgery. I had the surgery and I'm fine now. This was the closest I've been to facing death, and I hope it's the closest I get for a few more decades.[12] Having lived through it, I can now say this to you with a bit more certainty than when death was a useful but purely intellectual concept: No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true. Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition(what your heart says). They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.  

When I was young, there was an amazing publication called The Whole Earth Catalog, which was one of the bibles of my generation. It was created by a fellow named Stewart Brand not far from here in Menlo Park, and he brought it to life with his poetic touch. This was in the late 1960's, before personal computers and desktop publishing, so it was all made with typewriters, scissors, and polaroid cameras. It was sort of like Google in paperback form, 35 years before Google came along: it was idealistic, and overflowing with neat tools and great notions.[13]  Stewart and his team put out several issues of The Whole Earth Catalog, and then when it had run its course, they put out a final issue. It was the mid-1970s, and I was your age. On the back cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking(travelling kind of person) on if you were so adventurous. Beneath it were the words: "Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish." It was their farewell(last ending) message as they signed off. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. And I have always wished that for myself. And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you. 
 Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. 
 Thank you all very much.

 [1.] [3.][7.][11.]
If you see most of the speeches of steve jobs after certain period of time he crack some jokes so that listeners don't get bored. These jokes are for the listeners and steve jobs doesn't smiles even he want the
people to concentrate on what he is saying so he try entertain even in speech. because if you have
attendant any long speech without any jokes or so you will feel asleep.

Every speech which you say or going to say it must be short and precise. It should not be long and
boring try to make all your speech small so that people will always be excited to listen to your
speeches because of its size and fun quality.

In the start everything seems clueless. If you heard about Guy Kawasaki speech 12 things that steve jobs taught Guy Kawasaki in that also he said CEO's are clueless.But Here only one thing can be said always follow your heart and intuition.

Here he tries to show the difference between Art and Science. Art is a thing which cannot be done by science and science is something which cannot be possible with art. Steve Jobs always valued art and science both he valued technology and art at same position. He gave same importance to tech as well as design. It can be clearly seen in Iphone.

Steve job is a positive thinker. Even in the sentence where he could use the word unsuccessful he used the word beginner he is an optimist . it can be seen
The same way he took death in a positive manner.


I want you to look at Guys Kawasaki Video also here it is called as 12 lessons steve jobs taught Guy Kawasaki :

If you are a CEO of a company or planning to build one here a video where steve jobs is building next and starting from zero again You can see his courage, enthusiasm and boldness in it a must watch video if you are planning to build a company
