With the death of Steve Jobs, we reflect back on his life. Here was a man who dropped out of school, caused a lot of trouble in his youth, and then found his way back doing something that he loved. He and his friend founded Apple in his parents garage. The success of Apple came to fruition because he followed his heart and passion.
That is a good lesson to learn. Don’t let anybody tell you that “you can’t do it”. Even the most simple idea can turn into your lifes dream. I actually took that advice and that was when I decided to start DF Consultants. I was nervous at first, but I knew that my heart was in the right place. I wanted to help people in an industry where I had experience. I felt that I could make a difference, and hopefully change the dynamics of the construction industry for the new home buyer.
We have so many examples of people becoming successful just because they stuck to their convictions and followed their dreams. Success however; doesn’t always mean becoming rich and famous. More importantly it means that you have made a positive difference.
Steve Jobs made a difference by offering us technology that educated, entertained and made communication just a little bit easier and a lot more fun. I am hoping that I will be able to say, that my dream helped to make peoples lives just a little bit easier.
