I recently discovered a blog called CREATING CONNECTIONS by William Vanderbloemen. He had an interesting thought on Steve Jobs.

What if Steve Jobs Had Been Normal?
October 7, 2011

What if Steve Jobs had been normal?

What if he had settled into a regular job? What if he hadn’t asked the questions he kept asking to make computers and technology better?

What if he had believed the constant message that the world gives to “settle down,” “not rock the boat,” and “be content with the status quo?”

We would all have computers that are as exciting as pleated khakis. We might even still be on flip phones.

I’m glad he didn’t settle. I’m glad he believed in a bigger future and stepped into a bigger destiny.


What if there are other Steve Jobs out there that are settling? What if there are bigger futures that aren’t being lived? Bigger destinies that aren’t being realized?

What if that’s you?

Dream a bigger dream for your life.

God already has.

And He’s waiting for you to step into it.

You are the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God’s instruments to do his work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you—from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted. (1 Peter 2:9-10, The Message)
