Steve Jobs was a genius who helped usher in the digital age, and to us, he could do nothing wrong. However, in his behind the scenes life, Steve Jobs has been portrayed as a tyrant by historians in book and movie form. A man with a grandiose ego who put his own needs first and sometimes belittling everyone else around him.
That’s why the below fake deathbed later from Steve Jobs that has circled the internet has become so fascinating to me, and I wanted to share it here. And that’s because something inside me wants it to be real. I’m sure I’m not the only one that thinks this way.
It’s like this fake letter is the redemption story that many of us truly wanted. And that Jobs’ ultimate triumph was the admission of the mistakes that he made.
Yes, this note discusses the choice between wealth and family, but deep down, it’s about owning up to the choices you’ve made in life and taking responsibility for them. Many people walk around blaming other people for their problems, and their relationships suffer.
If you take anything from this letter, it’s to take responsibility for your actions and to mend the relationships that have become strained because of it. And you should do so while you still have time.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.
The Fake Steve Jobs Deathbed Letter
I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.
However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.
At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.
In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of god of death drawing closer …
Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth …
Should be something that is more important:
Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger days
Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.
God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth.
The wealth I have won in my life I cannot bring with me. What I can bring is only the memories precipitated by love.
That’s the true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on.
Love can travel a thousand miles. Life has no limit. Go where you want to go. Reach the height you want to reach. It is all in your heart and in your hands.
What is the most expensive bed in the world?
Sick bed …
You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you.
Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost — Life.
When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading — Book of Healthy Life.
Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.
Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends.
Treat yourself well. Cherish others.
