The man who brought a revolution in the communication industry and showed the people innovative and trendy ways to commune as well as entertain themselves had a great vision for the technology and seemingly appeared to be a complicated man in all his interviews who was well familiar with himself as well his ideas. He followed the simple belief to follow his heart without having to worry about any risk in life as according to him the biggest danger of life, that is, death of a person is something that is certain.

These two men redefined the definition of failure for all those who fear getting fired from their jobs.

  1. Those are some very powerful and influential people you listed there. It’s important to learn as much as possible from people like this because they can teach us some valuable lessons. I personally admire what Steve Jobs did. He had quite the imagination, but then also had the drive to make that imagination a reality.

  2. I am trying to build my own business, my little blog, and not a business empire but one of the same things that keep people from starting any kind of a business is fear. People (me) are afraid to take chances – not because they are worried about losing money but because they are afraid of failure and being seen as a failure.

    Many of the greatest business leaders have many failures under their belts and my blog and its tiny readership may not succeed but I am tired of living my life being afraid of things and I will succeed or fall on my butt but I am NOT afraid of failing.
