Ben Judah, a guest columnist with the Entrepreneur, last week wrote about how Steve Jobs, ten years ago stood on the stage and changed the world. He points out that it was not the launch of the iphone that changed the world, but that what has followed has changed the world.
Mr. Judah wrote, “Not only has it led to a huge boost on Wall Street but also spilled over every industry from security to health, entertainment to architecture, ecommerce to transportation, and created real change in billions of people’s lives.” entrepreneur.com
It was not the first time that Steve Jobs changed the world. He and technical whiz, Steve Wozniak, formed Apple Computer Company, in 1976. Jobs had it in mind to design a personal computer and delivered the Apple II in 1977.
“The company's sales grew to $200 million within three years. This was one of the most phenomenal cases of corporate growth in U.S. history. Jobs and Wozniak had opened an entirely new market—personal computers. Personal computers began an entirely new way of processing information.”
Looking back on his childhood, he was abandoned by his biological parents and was adopted and was raised by a middle-class family. He was a college dropout due to no interest in his study. He then worked as a video game designer for a few months, then went to India “to find some enlightenment within him”
Steve Jobs could have stopped there and just lived a mediocre life. He could have faded into some obscure job and then called it his fate. He could have kept the visions that he saw inside his mind locked away out of fear of laughter or just for the unknown. He could have found a dozen excuses as to why not.
Instead, Steve Jobs choose destiny and came back as one man, with one vision, with an intent to change the world. Just imagine what our world would be like if we all answered to the call of our destinies …
"This world is but a canvas to our imagination."
