You Changed The World Steve Jobs

While I didn't know Steve Jobs personally, I have used his products that have changed my life.  Yet, that seems so simple to state because the products that he helped foster in his team had a vision that was years ahead of its time. 

Remember when the iPhone came out and everyone was wondering just how much they needed it or how useful it would be to their life.  That was only a few years ago.  Now, if you say the word "iPhone", almost everyone knows what it is and how it impacts the life of the world.  The world of smart phones has evolved because of the Apple iPhone

I am at a loss for words as I mourn with the rest of the world, the passing of Steve Jobs on October 5, 2011.  I know he struggled in the past few years with a disease that was more powerful than him.  According to news reports, Steve Jobs took the time off and did all the things that he could do, but the disease he had claimed him as a victim.

What I do  not understand is why Steve Jobs who has contributed so much to this world, is taken from us while others in this world that only know how to spread their evil hatred to others are allowed to live.  I won't list them by person, but it isn't too hard to figure out who would be on the list.  I will never understand this. 

Apple, the creation of Steve Jobs, has allowed me to sell my music in ways that would never have been possible.  There are many people who would never had their lives touched by the notes of beautiful relaxing music that I created, if it was not for Steve Jobs vision and determination. 

I'm so inspired though by what Steve Jobs has accomplished.  He had a vision and he took action to make it happen.  There were times that it looked like Steve Jobs was down and out but he always managed to come through. 

His passing touches me deeply because he took the difficulties in life that he was given and turned them into life changing moments.  Many of us go through our life hoping and wishing for something to happen.  Steve not only hoped and wished that things happened but he took the action necessary to bring them into reality.

May we all learn from his life and be inspired by all that he accomplished.  May there never be a day that goes by where we sit on our butts and just hope that something happens.  May we be the ones that take action and make the world a better place.
