I Am The Next Steve Jobs

I am the next Steve Jobs.

You are the next Steve Jobs.

If it’s one thing Jobs would not want – it’s finding the next Steve Jobs. He didn’t live his life in the shadow or footsteps of someone else.

He lived it the way he wanted to live it. Created what he wanted to create. In doing this, he created the most powerful (cult-like) brand in the world.

Stop trying to find who the next Steve Jobs is and look to yourself.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.” – Steve Jobs

This is very powerful.

He’s telling us not to settle, not to fall victim to what everyone else wants us to do, to create what we want to create.

There is no answer to “who is the next Steve Jobs?”

We all are the next Steve Jobs.

The impact of Steve stretches far beyond the devices he created and the company he built. He inspired entrepreneurs, dazzled the media, and sold (and I mean really sold) to the world.

Everyone in some way, positive or negative, waited on edge for his next event.

For the product and for his presentation.

For the show.

Where was Steve taking us next?

What would he do to amaze us time and time again?

Don’t settle for good enough. Be unique. Be yourself.

“Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” – Steve Jobs

He has built a legacy from this. A legacy of good and bad depending on what you read – but a legacy none the less.

What will you do to change the world?

Are you still carrying that passion every morning? When you wake up are you ready to change the world?

A great entrepreneur should maintain that level of drive day in and day out. Don’t become a walrus and don’t suck at what you’re doing.

Press on to achieve great things.

I think a lot of people can’t answer the question “What do really want to do?” It’s harder to have passion and focus when you can’t even define the goal! I know I’ve been spending a lot of time the last few months trying to really hone and define my focus… and that makes it easier to build and sustain momentum!

Steve Jobs: The guy knew what he wanted to do with every fiber in his body… and he pursued it relentlessly. I deeply respect that about him.
