You can’t connect the dots looking forward you can only connect them looking backwards. 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. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path.
Steve Jobs commencement speech at Stanford has 11.4 million views on Ted.com alone. A solid 7 of those are from me. Each time I watch this video I learn and feel something new. His 3 stories are so powerful and thought encouraging. This is about his first.
So is it destiny, karma, life? It might just be all three. We are but a very tiny part of human existence. What happens to each individual is microscopic to this existence. We don’t need to understand why or what. None of us know what will happen tomorrow.
If you believe that it is destiny or karma or life or something else; the standard is still the same. When you look back; that was the exact path you needed, to get where you are!
There is no other path to the present. You are who you are today because of it.
Use that information an create who you want to be tomorrow.
