My Thought after Reading Steve Jobs’ Commencement Address
Steve Jobs was invited by Stanford University to make a commencement address to the graduates, Mr. Steve Jobs (Apple’s founder & President) delivered an inspiring speech in front of the graduates. How can a dropout of college student can create such marvelous achievement? His personal stories tell us the answer.
In this speech, he told us about three personal stories. Each story is true about his actual experience. I was very impressed by his sincerity to share his experience with the young graduate. His courage led him to disregard a sheet of academic certificate. He bravely chased what he was really interested and he made his interests radiate with the splendid glamour in his future life.
Upon facing the sorrow and distress, he still bravely confronted with his cancer. He always keeps the positive attitude toward his life upon encountering any kind of challenge. Even if he had many success, he still held the humble attitude “The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again.”
In his speech, he stressed “Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.” And finally he wished the graduate “Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.”. Regardless the ordeals in the process, he makes his dream come true eventually.
His inspiring speech can give me the encouragement to seek my own dream no matter what the troubles will be faced in the future. Let your courage fly with your dream.
