Stay Hungry Stay Foolish

Steve Jobs of Apple is considered to be one of the greatest speakers alive. Below is a speech he gave at a graduation ceremony at Stanford in 2005.

I turn to this video for inspiration and courage whenever I feel down. @AravindJose also said the same, I know you will also love this one. Its amazing.

Here goes my favorite part of the speech:

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma โ€” 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. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Stay hungry, stay foolish

I have these words on my desktop, right now. Get one for yourself. Click the image.

Words of Steve

A text version of the speech is available here. Get inspired ๐Ÿ™‚

    spelling mistakes in jpg . Please check.

    ‘You`re time’ – please correct it as ‘Your time’
    —“results” of other people…

    you didn`t put the most important part –
    “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.โ€

    1. Even my dad said the same. I copied those words just like that from a presentation about Steve Jobs, didnt edit anything. Who knows, maybe thats the way Steve wrote it.

      I left out the end part cuz its the first part that we need to follow in our daily life, the last one is a long term process.

      Thanks for the link ๐Ÿ™‚

        Last one – follow your heart and intuition.

        I am following the book – power of your subconcious mind by Joseph murphy. Hope it will make the long term – a short term.

        And trying to be a meditating monkey – it strengthen the inner thoughts and intutions
