Steve Jobs was born on the 24th of February 1955 in San Francisco, California.
His mother was not married and she wanted to put him up for adoption to a graduated couple, but when he was born, they refused him because they wanted a baby girl. Another couple accepted him, but they where not graduated,
His Mother made Paul and Clara Jobs promise that they would have sent him to the University and they did, but it was too expensive and Steven decided to leave University but he kept on attending calligraphy instruction that he found fascinating.
At the moment he didn’t find useful to study it, but 10 years later it was useful for the macintosh computer.
He said that what saved him in his life is that he has always trust in what he liked.
The day of the speech at the day of graduation at Stanford University he said
You have to trust in something — destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
He started Apple in his parents garage when he was 20 and when he was 30 he was fired from the company he started and it was devastating.
But later it turned out to be a starting point for something new to do.
He started another company Pixar animation that today is very famous all over the world.
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.
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.
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. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
Steve Jobs died on 5th October 2011
