1. Steve Jobs' Stanford Commencement Speech
The most inspirational quotes from Steve Jobs' Stanford Commencement Speech:
“ You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
“ 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. ”
2. (From A Movie) Rocky's Solid Speech About Life
Even if it is a fictional character, Silverster Stalone's speech as Rocky is very inspiring and full of truth, here is the most inspirational truth from the movie:
“ You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. ”
3. Jim Carrey's MUM Commencement Speech
The most inspirational truths from Jim Carrey's MUM Commencement Speech:
“ So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect, so we never dare to ask the universe for it. I’m saying, I’m the proof that you can ask the universe for it.”
“ As far as I can tell, it's just about letting the universe know what you want and working toward it while letting go of how it might come to pass.”
“ Your job is not to figure out how it’s going to happen for you, but to open the door in your head and when the doors open in real life, just walk through it. Don’t worry if you miss your cue. There will always be another door opening. They keep opening.”
