Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish – Steve Jobs

I knew, as we all did, who Steve Jobs was, but I never had put any attention to him until he died and someone sent me a link to a YouTube video.

I’ve watch that video over 15 times and each time I watch it I take away something new from it and that is why I wanted to share it with you.

Some quotes that cough my attention:

“I TRUSTED that it would all work out OK …”

“And much of what I stumbled into by following my curiosity and INTUITION turned out to be priceless later on …”

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward you can only connect them looking backwards, so you have to TRUST that somehow the dots will connect in your future … you have to TRUST in something your gut, destiny, life, karma or whatever, because BELEIVING that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to FOLLOW YOU HEART, even when it leads you off the well worn path, and that will make ALL THE DIFERENCE

“Sometimes LIFE is going to hit you in the head with a brick, DON’T LOSE FAITH

“The only way to do great work is to LOVE what you do … If you haven’t found what you LOVE to do, keep looking, DON’T SETTLE

“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, this 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

“Death is very likely the single best invention of life”

“Your time is limited so don’t waste it leaving someone else’s life”

“Don’t let the voice of others opinion drown out your own inner voice and most important, have the courage to follow your HEART and INTUITION, they somehow already KNOW what you truly want to become, everything else is secondary”

“Stay hungry, stay foolish …”

    Thanks Alex for your email about Steve Jobs. I appreciate what you meant in your email so much so that you spurred me on to put a post on my much neglected website

    I hope you don’t mind me quoting you in full but I thought “Credit is due to Alex for sharing his thoughts”

    It’s good to know that there are Internet Marketers with humanity and compassion.

    All the Best, Morgan

    I’m 63 years old and I just want to say that what Steve Jobs said is just as relevant for me at my age now, as it would have been had I been a young student sitting in the audience listening to him when he said the things he said.

    Thanks Alex for bringing it to my attention and making me realize it.

    Hi Alex,
    Thank you for all your valuable guidance, and for the moving Steve Jobs video.
    What an inspiration Steve was for this planet.
    Now Steve is up close and personal sharing stories with Jesus, and wouldn’t we all love to look in on their conversations!

    May he light up heaven, in his inimitable way.

    God Bless

    I especially like his encouragement of trusting the inner voice — that information that comes from inside that seems to whisper to us every day. It’s easy to get so distracted by all the information screaming at us from outside ourselves that we become deaf to that inner voice. So it’s refreshing to be reminded that we even have an inner voice to listen to.

      Yes Allan,

      We live in a very noisy world and so we need to make a conscious effort to turn off all the noise around us and pay attention to our inner voice

    Thanks Alex for following your heart to share this video on Steve Job, I think the more we study, and listen to the experiences of others successful people who struggle to follow their own inner child through the many trial and errors that went along with them that finally lead to their apparent fulfillment of life promises.

    Brilliant video Alex, seen it before but like you, can watch it many times. It’s things like this that make me even more determined to succeed being an entrepreneur. I’m going to make a blog post about this on my own blog too. 🙂

    Hello Alex, I’m from Brazil and I would say that if it were not for your email I would ever see this video, passing many life lessons in just 15 minutes of video, always follow your blog I met trough have purchased your program keywords, but never comment because I do not speak and write well also not in English but not quite understand what you write of course with the help of google translator, but this post, with the life history of steve jobs was phenomenal. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and present us here in Brazil with a video that I classify as a “precious jewel” Thanks
