Steve jobs’ Last Words

I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.

However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.

At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.

In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of god of death drawing closer…

Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth…

Should be something that is more important:
Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger days

Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.

God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth.

The wealth I have won in my life I cannot bring with me. What I can bring is only the memories precipitated by love.

That’s the true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on.

Love can travel a thousand miles. Life has no limit. Go where you want to go. Reach the height you want to reach. It is all in your heart and in your hands.

What is the most expensive bed in the world? Sick bed…
You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you.

Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – Life.

When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading – Book of Healthy Life.

Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.

Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends.
Treat yourself well. Cherish others.

Then make these decisions:

–Release scarcity + adopt generosity as your main way of thinking.

–Forgive the unforgiven, as you are carrying them on your back.

–Understand that every person who has shown up in your life arrived to help you become the person you now are. Appreciate and love them.

–Trust that suffering grows strength and your trials can serve your growth vastly. The best of us who have graced this earth leveraged their pain into greater humility, bravery and love.

–Commit to doing the projects that terrify you + shifting from accepting good work from yourself to demanding legendary production from yourself.

–Never miss an opportunity to serve or encourage another human.

–Refuse to cling to stagnation. Complacency destroys potentially awesome lives. So as you rise to new levels of success and joy, keep optimizing.

–Aggressively notice the miracles in every so-called average day–they are there for those awake enough to witness them.

–Smile at strangers, do kind things for zero return + be polite (it’s so uncool to be rude).

–Make a stop doing list so you delete the misuses of your oh so precious time.

–Less news more books. Period.

–Be a person of depth, wisdom, understanding, ingenuity, audacity, decency and love. At the end, even the finest of us will have wished we’d loved more. So do it now. Please.

–Remember that we get what we settle for, so set audacious goals that evoke the fiery brilliance that resides within you.

–Write hand written thank you notes to your mentors and those who have helped you. In a world of digital, it shows how much you care.

I believe in your talents + gifts + dreams.

Stay strong. Stay true. Be great,
