They are strong minded and determined to make a difference in the world. Edison is one of these inventors, which is why he was so successful. He had a strong heart and didn’t let his failures get the best of him.
He made sure that he was going to do what was necessary for the people he worked for in a genuine and honest way because he knew that there were certain aspects he wanted to have to be a well-known businessman. His name was well-known because people had all the respect he deserved working as hard as he did, but still never felt he needed boast or become all about himself. He remained humble and always looked towards attaining the goals of perfecting his craft as a very faithful, true person and businessman. Franklin says, “Make no expense but to do good to others or yourself; i. e., waste nothing” (Appelbaum & Smith, 1996, p.64). This is one of his virtues which is, “Frugality” and this is something I feel that businessmen today do take into consideration but seems to lack the quality at which Franklin uses it in his life.
The “ideal” idol gained their power by being remarkably intelligent and liable. Machiavelli is the perfect example of this. Machiavelli gained his power from being a political leader for people to seek themselves in. This justifies people’s needs for power, and therefore, they envied Machiavelli because of his political power. Machiavelli influences the modern political science we still use today, and continue to pathe his paths.
Our Founding Fathers were merely men, but they utilized their strengths and conquered their weaknesses to propel themselves into godlike statuses that molded each and every one of them into prominent historical figures. Katori Hall explained this perfectly when she said “We expect our leaders to be godlike. But I feel that when people try to sanctify leadership it puts it out of the realm of regular people. And that’s where the greatest leaders come from – from the people.” Our Founding Fathers harnessed their personal strengths and weaknesses, but this alone wasn’t enough to help them to succeed. They exploited the assistance of anonymous individuals to aid them in acquiring these statuses and their success.
Steve visits another company named Xerox and decides it is the future of computing, he then spends one million dollars on a commercial that contributes to the increased exposure of the Macintosh. He is then fired by the CEO he recently hired and then decided to start a computer company called NeXT. Jobs starts Pixar and makes Toy Story then sells NeXT to Apple and then reclaims his position as the CEO of Apple, he is now more empowered and confident than ever.

Jobs revolutionized the technological industry in a way that not only shaped modern technology, but impacted the daily lives of consumers. Throughout his speech, Jobs appeals to ethos, logos, and pathos to persuade his audience to pursue personal passions and do what they love. Throughout this speech, Jobs tells three stories of his life experiences which motivated him to become the technological leader he is remembered as today.
