the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes,
the ones who see things differently,
they are not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo,
you can quote them, disagree with them, glorify them or vilify them,
but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things,
they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as crazy, we see genius,
because the people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."
Jobs, who died on October 5, 2011, at the age of 56, was someone who saw things differently in the sphere of technology. His invention of the Apple II, and the revolutionization of the Macintosh gave way to the introduction of many new products that the whole world will not stop being obsessed about. This is because he focused on making the computer an extension of the person no matter what it would cost.
Just so you may know, that quote in my introductory passage not only makes me motivated but also makes me emotional for some unknown reasons. Maybe its because I just feel so because he has passed away, you know how people feel when they remember their loved ones that died, hm? And maybe, it could be that those words actually strikes a part of me that wants to excel, beyond the limitations imposed by society, governments, family and even self.
But what he meant was those who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world.
The world is really a big place, really big. I just kinda wonder how possible it is to change the world, not to consider when it is to be done by one person, one person! It's almost impossible, right? But Jobs insists that the crazy people, at least 'crazy' enough to think that they can change the world, actually do.
Jobs chose to prove geography wrong that the 7.8 billion people spanning over the 149 million square kilometres landmass can be affected by a single person(man or woman), either singly, collectively or cumulatively. But are you crazy enough to believe that?
The world is already full of people who are afraid to do new things and the change we all need comes only from those who are willing to cause a change, by thinking differently and doing things differently from the world out there.
Steve Jobs, though gone will continue to remain a motivation through this quote to millions of lives including you and me. Whenever I go through this quote, my heart liquidates, the vapourises through my eyes. But then, he added "I will put a dent in the universe...", and not only did he do that, he also left a mark in my yearning heart. I hope you get motivated to step out after now.
I can't get over the emotions when I read the line "...because the people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world are the ones who do".
