Steve Jobs, the affluent CEO of Apple Inc. and Pixar Animation Studios and Fortune Magazine‘s Most Powerful Businessman of 2007 did not graduate from college, was fired from a company that he himself established, and had been so close to death after being diagnosed to have a terminal pancreatic cancer.
These harsh experiences however, did not make him lose sight of what truly matters in life, but instead taught him valuable lessons which transformed him forever . In a keynote speech he gave to the graduates of Stanford University in their Commencement Exercises way back in 2005, Steven Paul Jobs shared the story of his life. In this commencement address which contained three inspirational stories , he gave the students of Stanford University and literally the whole world, a fresh new perspective on life.
