Steve Jobs is a man I have admired for a long time as a source of inspiration and motivation for myself in life and in business.

I first found and watched this video on YouTube last year when I was having a few difficulties with getting my new business started and I was seeking some motivation to keep going.

It achieved the desired effect for me and I kept going with renewed vigour.

As we start the new year of 2013 and consider what lies before us this year, I decided to watch it again and I share it with you now.

If you’ve never listened to this inspirational and motivational speech by Steve Jobs, then you’re in for a treat!

The video below shows Steve Jobs delivering his commencement address to the students of Stanford University in 2005 as they began their degree courses.

He tells 3 stories about his life and what he has learned, which moved me to tears the first time I watched this.

I won’t spoil it for you by trying to tell you what Steve Jobs’ stories are about – I won’t do them justice in any case – so just go ahead and watch the video now…

I got several motivational and inspirational quotes from Steve Jobs listening to this – my favourites are…

Love what you do.  If you’ve not found it yet, keep looking and don’t settle.

Your time is limited so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.

What did you get from watching this video?  Leave me a comment at the bottom of this page and tell me your thoughts.
