Steve Jobs on the Opinions of Others

Welcome to Make Daily! This email contains an idea, reflection, and a simple action you can take to improve your life today.


Idea 💡

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”

— Steve Jobs

Reflection 🤔

"Judgement from others comes from a place of insecurity. They're just threatened by your courage to try when they won't." (Share)

Let me guess — you're avoiding trying something cool in your life because you're afraid of how someone will judge you.

When I say this, who comes to mind? A friend? Family member? Strangers on the internet?

I always find it helpful to remember that judgement from others comes from a place of insecurity. They're just threatened by your courage to try when they won't.

Action ✅

How would life feel if you no longer cared what this person thought of you? What does letting go of this fear look like?

Stand up for yourself today. It's your journey and no one should control that except you.

Creator Fact 👤

Speaking of perceptions, Steve Jobs was arguably the most important entrepreneur of all time... and his high school GPA was 2.65. Do you think his peers or teachers could see what was ahead for him? Remember this next time you're feeling inadequate or like you don't belong.
