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."~Steve Jobs~
This quote is so true, we really do have to trust in ourselves, to know that whatever decision that we make whether career choices, personal, or any any area of our life, will be beneficial for our future. We are going to make mistakes ("learning experiences") along the way, there are going to be challenges ("Surpassing the Pebbles") along the way, and it is normal to change our minds, we are all human beings. The important part is to make choices that we feel comfortable in and not choices that someone else is making for us.Invest the time to find out what makes you happy, write down what you enjoy, and "connect the dots" in your life.
Thank you Steve Jobs for the mark that you made in this world and your contributions!
“I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.” ~Steve Jobs~
