Here's To The Ones Who See Things Differently

As I reflect on the death of Steve Jobs, someone who revolutionized the world of technology, I can't help but relate his "Think Different" campaign to the vision of World Pulse. He opened the campaign with the following words.

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the rebels, the troublemakers, the ones who see things differently. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”

Here's to my fellow women who are changing the world!

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the rebels, the troublemakers, the ones who see things differently. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”

Each one of us is a rebel but society forces us to shut down, to keep quiet, to stay in a reserved space. I am a rebel too maybe it is time to take ownership of my rebellion.

Thank you for this message. Women need to be rebels because nobody will fight for us.

They can call us what they will but we can not let them silence us. For our voice is thunderous if we all cry out together.

Yes Kimmy, together is the

Yes Kimmy, together is the word.
We need to stand firm and to believe in what we say and what we do.
Silence is a word we have deleted, a word we don't understand any more. Let's all speak up for what we believe in and for those women who cannot do it.

Thanks Kimmy

Thanks for your shearing what Steve Jobs said. I have few friends who see think differently.For me I could not compare to them because I am not confident to do something different. I not strong enough to challenge, I alway feel confuse what I am going to be, what I am good at.I am not satisfy what I am doing right now mostly related to my job. currently,I could not find someone that I feel good to work with. I used to wish that, I want to work with one who inspire me , help me to improve. Now I am being seek for. and I hope I will find one.

The best!

Let Your Light Shine Kunthea

Be positive and shine positive energy. When we are positive, we attract others who are positive and that can inspire us. Sometimes we have to work to build our strength a little at a time. Don't give up, you will find someone who inspires you.

Dear Kunthea

I have no doubt that you have got all it takes to become the change you so much desire. I sense too that others around you need someone to inspire them. You are that inspiration and that someone they can feel good to work with. Go girl!

Thoughtfully,

Change the world

May Steve Job soul rest in perfect. Who are we to goerge if a man or woman is cracy. Every one has come to this world for a purpose. To achieve that purpose you must remain focus believe in yourself and follow your thought to the latter. Steve came , he worked and he conguered.

Amen

Wonderful thoughts, I agree with you, persistence and determination one step at a time.

Thanks for sharing Kimmy.

Thanks for sharing Kimmy. Everyday the world proves that the people who think differently are the people who leave an impact on this world. Steve Jobs was one of the "crazy" people, and so was MLK, Mahatma Ghandhi, Mother Theresa, Michael Jackson, and others who made this world a better place.

Thinking differently

Non-conformists face daily challenges as people frown on those who choose to be different. Thinking differently allows us to bring creative solutions to problems. Thanks for sharing that thinking differently those not necessarily mean doing things negatively.

All the best,

Yep Kimmy!

Steve Jobs must have believed in the difference everyone can make, as his statement bore no stint of discrimination.I imagine that the women who had the privilege of working with him could attest to this. The phrase "Here's to the crazy ones" is all inclusive! To achieve a different result, one must me different, think differently and do things differently. In life, there is no end to learning. Thanks for sharing Kimmy.
