Incredibly inspiring words from a unique man – Steve Jobs
When you grow up, you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and that your life is just to live inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life. Have fun, and save a little money. But life that, that’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact, and that is everything around you that you call life.
Was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. And the minute that you understand that you can poke life and actually something will, if you push in, something will pop out the other side that you can change it, you can mold it.
That’s maybe the most important thing is to shake off this erroneous notion that life is there and you’re just gonna live in it, versus embrace it, change it, improve it, make your mark upon it. I think that’s very important. And however, you learn that once you learn it you’ll want it to change your life and make it better.
Cuz it’s messed up in a lot of ways. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.
