Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. Thank you. I received the below in my email in box — from Akash — and was so moved to reprint what the individual said about Steve Jobs – the creator of Apple Inc.. I am not sure who is the author of the statement — as the email did not specificity who made the statement — other wise I would credit the individual with the statement.
As we read the statement, may we be inspired to be uniquely ourselves. May we be encouraged by Steve Jobs legacy and leadership to live beyond the “box”.
…Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. (Apple Inc.)
Steve Jobs was a great leader and communicator. He will be missed.
May we surge forth in the face of any societal stigmatization that we may experience. May we not be dissuaded when we find ourselves being misunderstood, devalued, discounted, ridiculed, maligned, scoffed at, excluded, shunned, snubbed, reproached, denigrated, ostracized, hindered, blackball(ed), scorned, spurned, chastised, reprimanded, berated or rejected. May we be considered to be among the crazy ones, who take the risk to be innovative, to live beyond our box of fear and insecurity. May we be among the crazy ones, who believe that we can change our world through our passion.
May we be inspired to use our passion(s) in such a way to encourage, motivate, empower and instill hope in our world.
“Be the change you want to see in the world.” Mahatma Gandhi
