“The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented.” – Barrack Obama
“Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you.” – Mark Zuckerberg
Indeed, the world has lost a very inspirational figure, with the magnitude of sadness at an unimaginable level. It’s definitely a trending topic on Twitter and Facebook as well. In fact, I believe the death of Steve Jobs is the start of era for many new visionaries.
Many have posted up videos of his inspirational speech at Stanford College and everyone loves it. Even though many have not seen the video which has been posted for more than 3 years ago, I believe this time, many will be inspired by how a visionary thinks and react. And with that, the younger generation will strive even harder to make their dreams come through cause it is proven now that life is short and we should do what we are passionate about and live by it as if our next day will be our last.
I know it certainly make me realise even more now on what I want to do in the future. The urge should not be held back anymore and it is all about action and going forward with nothing to lose, cause the only thing to lose in life is by not doing what you want.
I hereby end the post with some great stuff of Steve Jobs that you all can watch and read on.
