Last night, I hopped on twitter to see all new tweets mentioning and mourning the loss of Steve Jobs. I sat there shocked as I told Tyler. I actually teared up. I’ve never met him, nor could I even spot him in a crowd of people. But something inside me made me wonder how many great things he had left to accomplish that the world will never know or, honestly, if we’d ever have someone who would shape our technology as much ever again. It seemed like a finite end.
The answer? All of us have the potential. It’s already in us. We just have to harness it.
Instead of simply mourning the loss of someone who has revolutionized the way be do so many things, I hope we can find inspiration in it. Steve Jobs wasn’t superhuman, just human. But he was filled with a passion and desire to do what he did as well as the drive to actually make it happen.
If one person can have such an impact, how big would the impact of six billion+ people be?? No excuses, people. We are all capable. Saw this tweeted today.
“Steve Jobs was born out of wedlock, put up for adoption at birth, dropped out of college, then changed the world. What’s your excuse?”
