Believe it

i knew about who Steve Jobs was, on the day when he passed away recently ..
lots of my friend mention him in their status in Facebook
i look up in google, who is he anyway that makes him so famous ?
Oh my .. i guess i live in a box that i have no idea who he really was ..
and then i found out that he was an American computer entrepreneur and innovator. He was co-founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of Apple Inc... 
but then i said ... SO ?

i still have no idea why people interested in him that much until i read an article from this blog that i follow ...

Steve Jobs's first story is about connecting the dots
he said : " you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life".

It's so true ...
the words bring back the memory of my life ...
When i was still in primary school, my dad refused to accompany me to enter the Bank which was "scary" for me to enter by myself.. i hate him so much at that time, ...never support his child, wicked, and many negative thoughts about him.
 One other night, i insist to watch "Friday The13th". And my mom said : No, you cant watch that  movie coz you'll be very annoying , wanted to sleep in my room every night and dont want to be alone in the bath room. I said : ok, i wont do that. And i can't sleep that night because i saw the monster everytime i close my eyes.

now, 20 years later. i can connect the dots ...
I wont be a brave woman who independent with my own career if my dad not forced me to enter the bank by myself. And i might still scared with ghosts or horror movie just like some of my friends if my mom not do what she did to me.

Jobs's second story is about love and loss.
Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle.

I am .. :)

Jobs's third story is about death.
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering 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 not to follow your heart.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

I wrote something similar with his idea of death on my board at home.
" If there's no tomorrow, have you proud of what you've done today ? "

but i never living it , just like the way he did. After 10 minutes reading his article, It's like he remind me to keep focus. If you mean it , believe it!
Thank you Steve! :)

Have a nice day guys!
