How to change the world

A scene from the Movie Jobs

I came across an extremely inspirational scene that was present in the movie Jobs. Before you read this article i want you first to go through the following scene quickly. Just make sure you pay attention to every word said.

Now lets analyze the most important part of the video:

"When you grow up you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and you're life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. That's a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it… Once you learn that, you'll never be the same again"

How to change the world

Steve jobs summarized what happens to everyone of us when we start growing up. As children we usually have big dreams and no limits but as we grow up people start imposing limits on us. As the years pass we slowly start to believe that we are stuck, that the world is the way it is and that nothing can be done to change it.

After some time those beliefs become core negative beliefs and as a result so many people never believe they have any potential to do anything useful. Steve pointed one extremely important fact which is that almost everything we get told are lies.

Every product that you use today was created by people who are no smarter than you and if you want a solid proof then just read about the success stories of famous and successful people. They were no aliens, they didn't have extraordinary brains and they were normal humans just like you.

Do you know the real difference between you and those people?
They believed that they have control over their lives. They believed in their dreams and believed that they can change the world.

Once someone develops a belief that something is possible his mind and all of his senses work together to help him achieve that thing. (see also How believing that something is possible can help you achieve it and my book How i did it)

Its all about the beliefs

If you don't believe you can make it then why bother trying?
This is exactly how your mind works. If your mind thinks something can't be done then it will never motivate you. Motivation is an emotion triggered by the mind when it believes that an important task can be done. If your mind believed that this task is impossible then it will never motivate you.

Instead you will experience indifference, lack of enthusiasm or even depression. Whether you will make it in life or not depends on taking the first step which is believing that everything is possible.

Whenever you feel hopeless Just remember Steve's words: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you

Whether we like it or not we get exposed to a tremendous amount of negativity in our lives. If we didn't balance this negativity with an equivalent amount of positivity we will certainly become pessimistic, sad and eventually depressed.
