Below are Steve Jobs greatest quotes on how to dream, follow your heart, change your thinking, and achieve the impossible. Steve Jobs was a spiritual business man. He knew how far a man can go to accomplish anything in life be it in business or in love. Steve was given up for adoption when he was a child because his mother wanted him to get an education. Ironically, Steve became one of the most successful and richest men in the world after dropping out of Reed College, not an ivy league college. However, it is not to say that a college education is not important, it is critical for most people to have one to get ahead in today’s world. The point is that intelligence and the determination to succeed are not acquired through education, they reside within man and Steve was well aware of it since he was very young. Steve knew instinctively that we are a lot more than our mind and body. Steve relied on his intuition and other people with the knowledge he did not have to achieve what most would consider to be impossible.
Steve Jobs never settled in business or in love. He sought his passions and took great risks and chances until he found what he was looking for. As we all know he succeed beyond average comprehension and was very much in love with his wife. Steve Jobs showed the world that doing work we love and finding the right partner in life is possible as long as we follow our heart and never settle until we find what we’re meant to do and who we’re meant to be with in life.
In spite of Steve’s success in business and love, his life was not perfect. Steve was a workaholic, he lived and breathed what he did for a living. There is price to pay for everything in life and Steve paid for his mega business success with his health. Steve had an obsession with perfection and quality. He demanded the very best from everything he touched. All of that pressure eventually takes a toll on our health and ultimately our mortality. However, we will never know the ways of creation or the universe, we will never know what is truly right or wrong from the universe perspective. But what we do know is that there is a consequence to everything in life and it is up to us to think differently, choose wisely, and put our health and well-being before all things so that we are able to enjoy what we do and who we love. Perfection is impossible for the human existence because man must think and choose at all times.
Every time I think of Steve Jobs I get emotional. I can’t help but to be grateful for all of the wisdom he shared with the world and for the remarkable way in which he defined a new and better way for human beings to come closer together and communicate. Steve Jobs passion was to give people back to themselves, to bring them closer together no matter where they lived, and to help them use their inner artist no matter who they were. He wanted every human being to have nothing but the very best from him. He was a very strong and tough man, but he also had a heart of gold.

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. ― Steve Jobs
Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. ― Steve Jobs

Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains. ― Steve Jobs
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. ― Steve Jobs
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. ― Steve Jobs
Steve On Following Our Passion, Finding Work We Love And The Love Of Our Lives
You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lover.
