Lately I have been reading a book titled Personal Branding for Dummies by Susan Chirtton, And today I was reading a chapter about Case Studies in Personal Branding Success; the chapter offered examples of public figures how they have used their talents and passions to become known for something special and to build a distinct personal brand. One among the big public figures discussed was Steve Jobs. If you didn't know Steve Jobs is one of my greatest inspiration, and one of the thing he inspired me is not to let the past define the future.
When I was reading that chapter I came across Steve Jobs's famous speech, that's Stanford Commencement Speech 2005. I have read and listen this speech a lot of time; it's short,smart, inspiring and uplifting. So that's why I have decided to share with you just a short brief of his central theme of the speech; finding a career based on your passion. He said " Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle."
