How to Get Everything by Following Steve Jobs of Apple
Rocky: Eric, can you tell me, who is Steve Jobs ?
Eric: Steve Jobs is the CEO of Apple Inc., but why are you asking ?
Rocky: Actually, my friends were talking about him and saying Steve Jobs is great personality. What’s so great about him, Eric?
Eric: I have always been a big fan of Mr. Steve Jobs too, because his struggle really inspires youngsters. Jobs was adopted as a baby boy with the condition that his adoptive parents send him to college after he graduated high school. Dutifully obeying this clause Steve went to college.
Rocky: So, he must be having many degrees, as he is the CEO.
Eric: No, He dropped out after six months, trusting that all would work out OK.
Rocky: So, what did he do after that ?
Eric: Steve took up calligraphy and found it fascinating because it was “beautiful, historical, artistically subtle in a way that science can’t capture”. That influence was integrated into the design of the Mac ten years later. It was the first computer with beautiful typography.
Rocky: It’s great! What happened after that ?
Eric: Then he got fired from Apple, the company he started, when he turned 30. Steve’s vision for the future didn’t jive with another key executive in the company.
Rocky: What a shocking incident ! He must have lost the hope.
Eric: If it had happened with us we would have accepted the defeat, but Steve was different from others. What he did after that was miraculous.
Rocky: I’m dying to know, what Steve did after that.
Eric: After being fired from Apple, Steve took challenge and built many big companies like NeXT, Pixar and many more. These companies got huge success within years, so Apple had to appoint him as the CEO again. Recently, Apple has left behind the Microsoft in over all business.
Rocky: WOW! What a determination!
Eric: Steve was also diagnosed with a very rare form of pancreatic cancer. He wasn’t expected to live longer than 3-6 months. Steve is very much alive, living full out, thanks to an amazingly skilled surgeon.
Rocky: What a man he is! How does he get the power to fight the most difficult phases of the life ?
Eric: He always says, “”Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice, heart and intuition. Follow your heart and never fall down, until you get what you want”.
Rocky: You have really put new energy into me by telling about such a great personality. I shall use his biography as a weapon to move ahead in my life. Thank you!
