The Most Amazing American Innovator Steve Jobs
That type of genius is so rare and just like some of the other things that we've experienced in the prime time of our lives, I'd say witnessing Steve Jobs and his accomplishments with technology is up there. What an innovator! Its amazing how his passing has also become inspirational....at least for me.
I've prayed for several years now, asking God to show me what I'm meant to do. I hated where I worked. It was such a negatively manipulated place, where their intimidation of me was directly related to how I was treated by them. I stayed because I knew one of the owners and listened to others opinions. If I would've listened to myself, I wouldn't have been there for 4 years. I think staying in that dreadful environment taught me not to shrink my personality nor dim my light because of another's intimidation of it -- in my case, it was the other boss's daughter, who was the only other black female engineer. She copied my style and my personable ways...so in some cases I was an innovator for her. :-)
The next place I work at, I will be myself and keep my big personality, along with my creativity.
I will never shrink down again. My light will shine at all times.
Oh and instead of raising the next great politician, president or athlete......I hope to raise the next Steve Jobs. But boy he left one tough act to follow!
Rest In Peace Steve Jobs
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."
We have the same birthday! Yes!!! I finally have a cool celeb that shares my bday!
