This video is a must watch. You see, sometimes in life we have no idea why we are put in situations or why we learn what we learn. We sometimes go through a painful situation and don’t realize that that very painful situation has taught us a lesson we will never forget. It’s amazing that by us connecting the dots we realize that it wasn’t by accident. We may not be able to see it at the very moment we are experiencing the pain but as Steve Jobs said “You connect the dots looking backwards”.
When you think of Steve Jobs, you may have thought of this very successful rich man but when you heard him speak, you realized that he was human just like everyone of us. Even his biological mom decided to give him up so that he would have college graduate parents yet life has a funny way of working itself out by giving him parents that did not graduate from college and high school. The lawyer parents his mom thought he was going to have decided they wanted a girl last minute. How all of this would have changed everything.
Connecting the Dots – sometimes we don’t realize how things will come together. You connect the dots looking backwards. Trust the process.
Love and Loss – Loving what you do and losing it. Starting over is okay. Rejection sometimes teaches you what you cannot learn if you are always successful. Even if you are successful, failure or rejection can make you even better than you were before. You just can’t quit.
Death – living as if everyday is your last and questioning if you are happy or doing what you love will keep you focused.
