You Have a Green Light

One of my favorite sayings is, “Love is action, love is a verb, not a noun.” This means loving others, loving yourself, loving your work, family and interests. If you view love as a passive or a noun, not much will happen or change in your life.

With the passing of Steve Jobs, much has been written about his positive and negative traits, but there is no controversy about his brilliance and pursuit of perfection.

Steve Jobs learned early that when you don’t like how things are in your life or world, change them, either through action or sheer force of will. Some basic beliefs recently printed published in his new book about his philosophy includes the tenants listed below. As you review them, imagine your own life and current circumstances and see how you measure up. It may be time to adopt some of these principles to have a better life in 2012. Look for new ways to create a more fulfilling life. So, Steve Jobs believed in the following:

  • Make your own reality
  • Control everything you can
  • Own your mistakes
  • Don’t wait
  • Know yourself
  • Don’t hold back
  • Surround yourself with brilliance
  • Build a support team
  • Be yourself
  • Be persuasive
  • Show others the way
  • Trust your instincts
  • Take risks
  • Follow great with great
  • Make tough decisions
  • Find balance
  • Live for today
  • Share your wisdom

Many things are possible, if you can let go of fear.
