Why you should stay hungry & foolish

One of the most poignant and inspiring speeches, this is Steve Jobs at his 2005 Stanford Commencement Address. In this address, the CEO and co-founder of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios tells three stories about his life that span from dropping out of school to getting fired from Apple to overcoming cancer, and the turning points that led to founding Pixar and re-entering Apple in a newfound leadership role.

His speech shows how Steve Jobs confronts adversity, his obvious resilience and ability to encounter the lows and turn them around, his high level of awareness about his life and mind blowing perspective on the course of events, his trust in himself and the world even in the midst of situations that seemed to have “no way out.” This address will truly inspire you to be, do and experience everything that you desire.
