This Is How Crazy You Really Need To Be, Steve Jobs Once Said

Steven Paul Jobs, founder of Apple Inc.
"Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels,
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."
Steve Jobs

The founder of Apple Inc, someone who was known for his dogmatic resilience in changing the world of mobile computing is someone I really loved so much.
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.

The quote in the introduction not only makes me motivated but also makes me emotional for some unknown reasons. He recounted the crazy, misfits, troublemakers and all such things everyone would consider inappropriate but his point here remains one of the strongest motivation.

He also said that "you can choose to glorify them or vilify them" but you cannot ignore them. He is not referring to people who make a difference as the worst criminals. He is not talking about people who are different from the rest of the world around them by being dubious or deceitful. He doesn't mean you should be the black sheep to change the world.
But what he meant, 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. It's almost impossible but Jobs insists that those who are "crazy" enough to think that they can change the world actually do.

The world is not looking for sane people who will never see it beyond some sets of protocols of life till death. The world does not want people who are too full of understanding that the world is too large to be changed.
Jobs chose to prove geography wrong that the 7.8 billion people spanning over the 149 million square kilometres, can be affected by a single person, either singly or cumulatively. But only a crazy person would choose 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.

Have you ever being praised for not being different? Be happy about that but you also need to be worried. Have you ever been mocked and rejected for being a misfit, not because you are notorious for all evil acts, but that you are stubborn to pursue what you truly believe in? Never give up. This is the kind of crazy people that will change the world.

Steve Jobs, though gone will continue to remain a motivation through this quote to millions of lives including you and I. He also said "I will put a dent in the universe" and he actually did that.
And 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 actually do".
