“Whatever you want to do, if you want to be great at it, you have to love it and be able to make sacrifices for it.”
– Maya Angelou

“What is a fear of living? It’s being pre-eminently afraid of dying. It is not doing what you came here to do, out of timidity and spinelessness. The antidote is to take full responsibility for yourself – for the time you take up and the space you occupy. If you don’t know what you’re here to do, then just do some good.”
– Maya Angelou

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”

“We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.”

– Maya Angelou

“Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.”
– Maya Angelou

“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”
– Maya Angelou

“During bad circumstances, which is the human inheritance, you must decide not to be reduced. You have your humanity, and you must not allow anything to reduce that. We are obliged to know we are global citizens. Disasters remind us we are world citizens, whether we like it or not.”
– Maya Angelou

“We allow our ignorance to prevail upon us and make us think we can survive alone, alone in patches, alone in groups, alone in races, even alone in genders.”
– Maya Angelou

“Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told: ‘I’m with you kid. Let’s go.’”
– Maya Angelou

“All men are prepared to accomplish the incredible if their ideals are threatened.”
– Maya Angelou

“Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with deeper meaning.”
– Maya Angelou

“There’s a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure the truth.”
– Maya Angelou

“You are the sum total of everything you’ve ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot – it’s all there. Everything influences each of us, and because of that I try to make sure that my experiences are positive.”

Steve Jobs Team Building Quotes

Steve Jobs was an American entrepreneur, marketer and inventor. He was the co-founder, chairman and CEO of Apple Inc. Jobs is widely recognized as a pioneer of the personal computer revolution and for his career in the computer and consumer electronics fields.  Steve Jobs also co-founded Pixar Animation Studios and became a member of the board of directors of The Walt Disney Company in 2006. He left Apple in 1985 and founded NeXT, a computer platform development company specializing in the higher-education and business markets. When Jobs returned to Apple as an interim CEO, he brought Apple from near bankruptcy to profitability by 1998. As CEO, he oversaw the development of the iMac, iTunes, iPod, iPhone, iPad, Apple Retail Stores, iTunes Store and the App Store. By 2011, Apple bounced back to become the world’s most valuable publicly traded company.

On October 5, 2011, Steve Jobs died of respiratory arrest. He had received a number of honors and public recognition. He has been referred to as “legendary” and “visionary”, and seen by many as the “Father of the Digital Revolution”.

Here are some inspirational quotes by Steve Jobs which you can use to motivate your team:

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.”
– Steve Jobs

“That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”
– Steve Jobs

“Everyone here has the sense that right now is one of those moments when we are influencing the future.”
– Steve Jobs

“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

“Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.”
– Steve Jobs

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”
– Steve Jobs

“Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
– Steve Jobs

“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.”
– Steve Jobs

“For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”
– Steve Jobs

“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful, that’s what matters to me.”
– Steve Jobs

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.”
– Steve Jobs

“Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.”
– Steve Jobs

“This is what customers pay us for – to sweat all these details so it’s easy and pleasant for them to use our computers. We’re supposed to be really good at this. That doesn’t mean we don’t listen to customers, but it’s hard for them to tell you what they want when they’ve never seen anything remotely like it.”
– Steve Jobs

“My favorite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.”
– Steve Jobs

“We’ve demonstrated a strong track record of being very disciplined with the use of our cash. We don’t let it burn a hole in our pocket, we don’t allow it to motivate us to do stupid acquisitions. And so I think that we’d like to continue to keep our powder dry, because we do feel that there are one or more strategic opportunities in the future.”
– Steve Jobs

“Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith.”
– Steve Jobs

“The system is that there is no system. That doesn’t mean we don’t have process. Apple is a very disciplined company, and we have great processes. But that’s not what it’s about. Process makes you more efficient.”
– Steve Jobs

“You can’t just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they’ll want something new.”
– Steve Jobs

“Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you have a faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.”

– Steve Jobs

“Things don’t have to change the world to be important.”
– Steve Jobs

“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.”
– Steve Jobs
