Here i am listing out some of his precious words which transforming the way of millions of his followers towards success.
1.ON RICHNESS AND DAILY IMPROVEMENT;
Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me.Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful,that’s what matters to me.
2.ON EFFORTS TOWARDS WORK;
The greatest thing is when you do put your heart and soul into something over an extended period of time, and it is worth it.
3.ON LIVING LIFE IN THE BEST WAY;
Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice.
4.ON MOST PRECIOUS TIME;
My favorite things in life don’t cost any money.It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.
Great things in business are never done by one person, they’re done by a team of people.
6.ON CUSTOMERS NEEDS;
You can’t just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them.By the time you get it built, they’ll want something new.
I was worth about over a million dollars when i was 23 and over ten millions dollars when i was 24, and over a hundred million dollars when i was 25 and, it wasn’t that important- because i never did it for the money.
8.ON TECHNOLOGY AND FAITH IN PEOPLE;
Technology is nothing.What’s more important is that you have faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart,and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.
9.ON GETTING FIRED FROM HIS OWN COMPANY BEFORE COMEBACK;
Getting fired from apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me.The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again.It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.
10.ON INNOVATION AND MISTAKES;
Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes.It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.
11.ON DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LEADER AND FOLLOWER;
Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.
12.ON QUALITY AND CUSTOMER SATISFACTION;
Quality is much better than quantity.One home run is much better than two doubles.
Be a yardstick of quality.Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected
13.ON GROWTH AND DIVERSIFICATION;
I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next.
14.ON CONTINUOUS LEARNING AND IMPROVEMENT;
When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: ‘If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.’ It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘no’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something
I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.
16.ON FOCUS AND SIMPLICITY;
That’s been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex; you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.
