This is a clip from the founder of Apple, Steve Jobs, 20 years ago.
He decided not to live the life that was handed to him, but to carve his own path. He realized that “Everything around you that you call life, was made up by people no smarter than you.” You can influence, shape and change.
Steve went on to change the computer, music, and phone industry, while capturing the imagination of millions around the world.
What would it look like if the same genius that helped spread smartphones across the planet, was applied to spreading hope, justice, and peace?
In the words of Mary Oliver – what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?
Maybe one day you’ll work for World Vision, maybe you’ll start your own social enterprise, or maybe you’ll find yourself living on the other side of the planet caring for orphans.
What’s for certain is, if you fully embrace the fact that your life is yours to shape, you will never be the same, and neither will our world.Read other posts from The Voice.
