We all can’t be Steve Jobs, but we all can learn from his extraordinary life.

#1. Start Early As Possible (If you start early, you will reach early.)

#2. Live Life By Your Own Rules….(Don’t let anything drown out your inner voice)

#3. Excellence is a way of life. (Give Your Best Effort In Everything You Do In Life.)

#4. Don’t Let Money Define Your Existence. (Value People and not Materials )

  • Steve Says, “Bottom line is, I didn’t return to Apple to make a fortune. I’ve been very lucky in my life and already have one.
  • Steve says, “When I was 25, my net worth was $100 million or so. I decided then that I wasn’t going to let it ruin my life. There’s no way you could ever spend it all, and I don’t view wealth as something that validates my intelligence.”
  • “My favorite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.” Today Time is the most expensive thing that you can give someone. Further, he adds, “Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful, that’s what matters to me.”

#5. Fail Forward (Use Your Failures To Drive You Towards Success.)

  • Everybody fails. It’s how you respond to those failures that make all the difference. In 1984, Steve Jobs was fired from Apple. At Stanford’s 2005 commencement address, he had this to say about it:
  • “I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.”
  • “Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.” “I’m convinced that about half of what separates successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”
