Steve Jobs, A Second Chance, Creativity, Success, Health and Death


Steve Jobs said to be fired from Apple in the early days was the best thing that happened to him. He could not see it at the time but he did say that the burden of success was lifted from him and lightness been returned as he had now luxurious start all over again.

How many of us have been lucky enough to start over? My experience is that this starts again many times nourishes our sense of adventure and discovery, helps our intimacy, friendship and family and even contributes to the welfare of our materials and we find increasingly important in the work that we do, not just in earning the end . We have nothing to lose.

Recently I read something else he said that rings true to me, and maybe you, too. The last time he was sick, he said that almost everything-all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure-these just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. if you have been near death, you will know this statement to be true.

Steve Jobs went on to say that, “remember that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason to follow your heart. “

Certainly starting around gets your creative juices working at warp speed and survival is a matter to be considered makes you all the more inventive, creative, adventurous and possible well. After all necessity is the mother of invention.

If we did we really have nothing to lose what it is we would do, without wasting another moment? We would still win at all costs, would be creative enough in itself, we would be more careful in our relationship, we would be present in our actions?

and we want to take more care of our health, both emotionally, physically and mentally?
