Steve Jobs presents the importance of defining these principles in his commencement speech (2005). He summarizes failures and difficulties, and the lessons he learned. And in Jobs’ case, for instance, the value of the love towards his job and profession encouraged him to stay in even after being fired from his own company, and it also gave the power for not being afraid of “being a beginner again” and starting a new company. That means enjoying and loving your career will surely help you to be persistent, flexible and stay optimistic, as a result, you will discover and develop yourself and your creative abilities. This life value, love, also led him to take every chance and enjoy each minute, as he determined for himself to love what he was doing uncondi-tionally and until the end.
The purpose of The Outliers is to inspire his readers to think of an individual more critically: “”They had to look beyond an individual. They had to understand the culture he or she was a part of, and who their friends and families were, and what town their families came from. They to appreciate the idea that the values of the world we inhabit and the people we surround ourselves with have a profound effect on who we are” (11). Gladwell aims to influence the reader to consider a more practical idea of success. He directly addresses his audience several times throughout these two chapters.
The Steve Jobs commencement speech was a speech that was given by the former Apple Inc. CEO to Stanford University during the 114th commencement on 12th June 2005. The speech Steve Jobs gave Stanford University is a very effective speech, because of his use of rhetorical devices. Jobs especially use his background and childhood to play upon his rhetorical approach. In Steve Jobs, he tells several stories about love, detection, death, loss. The main part of the Speech is how Steve Jobs encourages the students to pursue their dreams, and do what makes them happy, even if it all doesn’t go after the plan.
Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. Former Apple CEO and Computer Pioneer Steve Jobs’s “You’ve Got To Find What You Love” stated these words as an ending thought for Stanford University’s class of 2005 at their commencement speech in said the year. His primary goal was to inspire students with various lessons he learned throughout his life so that they may graduate just a little more enlightened as they were before. Jobs does this through the use of anecdotes that portray the literary techniques of logos, counterargument, and allegory to tell the students to not let limitations get the best of you, get back up when you or knocked down and to live life to the fullest.
Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell teaches you the understanding of success. Malcolm Gladwell in the book Outliers uses logos, pathos, and ethos to get his argument across. Outliers was written for the purpose to show the audience that success isn’t all on how hard you work, raw talent, intelligence or personality traits. Success comes from your culture, who your parents are, when you were born and the opportunities you have been given. The argument by logic, emotion and character are all put into Outliers to convince the readers that success is what you make of it.
Obama urges equal opportunity when he states, “you’ll hear the determination in the voice of a young field organizer who’s working his way through college and wants to make sure every child has that same opportunity (pg 2).” Obama emphasizes that background will not define one’s future. He feels strongly about creating opportunities for the younger generation. As one can see, Obama’s acceptance speech was not just about his gratitude for being re-elected, but also his plans to move this nation
Steve jobs, the man of billions. Steve shows us at the graduation speech in stanford, that you make something out of nothing by putting dedication into the thing that you love, and inspires us to follow our dream.

In his second story he tells us that when you find what you love to do, it’s hard not to do it. Steve told the graduates that remembering you’ll be dead soon helped him make big choices.
Spencer 's writing helped me to see that my motive for wanting to gain knowledge was wrong. Like many college students I 'm motivated by the success I can obtain. I push myself hard in school because I believe that after graduation I will get an amazing job and prosper in life. I wanna be wealthy, and I let that goal motivate me to do well in school. I 'm placing a higher power on the concept of success and money, rather then allow God to be my all, my motivator.
“Time for me is now double-edged: everyday brings me further from the low of my last relapse but closer to the next recurrence- and, eventually, death. Perhaps later than I think, but certainly sooner than I desire” (Kalanithi 196). Kalanithi saw the inextricably of death and how it correlates with living life to the fullest. He believes that everything happens for a reason. In the novel Kalanithi uses the words itinerant visitor which symbolises his cancer and how it is travelling in his body from place to place and spreading without he having any say on the matter.
Once he found something he was good at, he became obsessed with winning, becoming something, and showing everyone that he wasn’t just some poor German kid. He wanted to prove to the bullies that he is better than them and he wanted to make them regret bullying him as a kid, he wanted to prove it to his mom that he could go to college and he would be okay, he wanted to show everyone that even though he is small he could still win, and to himself to never give up. When he set his mind, he never gave up and for that, I admire
