Steve Jobs – his legacy


Article by Ceri Wheeldon

Steve Jobs will always be remembered for the way he changed our lives through the innovative use of technology, but perhaps his legacy is far greater.

In a world of celebrity culture where people seek to become famous for the sake of being famous, where people feel the world owes them a living and use circumstance as an excuse to sit back and let others support them. Steve Jobs showed the world what can be achieved with passion, vision, self belief and hard work. Steve Jobs was adopted, he dropped out of college, he was famously fired from the company he had founded. Yet never gave up. He never stopped believing in himself.

Don’t live someone else’s life

Even with pancreatic cancer he continued to invent, to dream, to deliver. No excuses, no drama, no self pity.
In 2005, Steve Jobs addressed Stanford University where he spoke about his life, facing death, his success, his motivation, his philosophy. He offered wise words for the students to take with them as they started their adult lives.

“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.”

In 56 years, Steve Jobs has left his mark on this world in more ways than one. His legacy is far greater than an iPad.
