I love listening to people speak who are doing and have done great things. The ipod changed the world. So did the iphone, etc. I love this speech and I keep what Steve Jobs is saying close to my heart. It's wisdom. It takes risk sometimes to move from the place where you are to the place that you love and want to be. But on the other side of that risk is great reward.
I see so many people that are in the wrong place in regards to their personalities and psychological makeup. Just yesterday we had a waiter that didn't seem so enthusiastic about his job. After talking with him, I discovered that he really didn't like his job and that he wanted to do something else. This just pays the bills. It was obvious that he wasn't happy by his attitude. He was simply in the wrong place to celebrate his natural passions and gifts. Because of this he was going unrewarded for them. I also had to think that although he gets a certain amount of tips because people are nice, I know that he's not getting as much as a enthusiastic happy coworker.
He works twice as hard at what he is doing and gets paid less because he's not in the right career. This is because he is not in the career that truly matches him best.
