The Last Day of My Life

If today was the last day of your life, would you do what you are planning on doing today?

Watch this video of Steve Jobs’s commencement speech at Stanford University:

If today was the last day of my life, these are the words that I would want to leave with you:

Your time is limited. Don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by the dogma of living the results of other people’s thinking.

The only thing that kept me going was loving what I did. You’ve got to find what you love… If you haven’t found what you love doing yet, keep looking and don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you will know it when you find it.

Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. Trust in something. Your gut. Your destiny, your life, your karma or whatever it is because your belief and your faith will give you the confidence to follow your heart even when it leads you off the beaten path. As Robert Frost would say, that that makes all the difference.

Don’t let the noise of other people’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. Eventually all of us are going to pass away so you’ve really got nothing to lose.

I was lucky. I found what I love to do in life.

How about you?

Think About This
If today really was the last day of your life, would you do what you are about to do today?

Hey…

Keep looking, don’t settle for anything less.

    So true.

    Last Monday,I attended the funeral of my best friend. If there’s anyone out there who does not believe in what you say, tell him to go attend a funeral.

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful message. If more people loved what they were doing, we would have a lot fewer angry people in the world.
