Steve Jobs’ Commencement Speech at Stanford

A life-changing speech – this is what I can say about the oration of Steve Jobs, in honor of the Stanford graduates in 2005. Nothing so special, but really amazing, something that touches your soul deep inside, if you can grasp the meaning of it. It’s a story about life and death, about how everyone should think about his/her life because we are not here forever… Few people really realize this, but it’s true for all of us. See the philosophy of one great entrepreneur about life, success, failure, and happiness.

Steve Jobs never graduated from college. However, this didn’t stop him from becoming one of the greatest entrepreneurs of our time. This even helped according to him. “It’s impossible to connect the dots, looking forward, but it’s very clear looking backwards”. Everyone has his path in his/her life, and he or she should just follow it, no matter what the price is. “Don’t be afraid to chase your dreams”.

“Everybody’s 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 others’ people thinking… and the most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know, what you truly want to become.”

The only way to do great things is to do what you love. If you can’t find it, keep looking… It’s somewhere there… And never give up!

This is one of the main reasons for Steve Jobs‘ great success!
