How Do You Stay Hungry?
Stay hungry, stay foolish.
- Steve Jobs
You might have heard this quote over and over as it was said by Steve Jobs when he gave the speech at Stanford University.
Hungry in this sense doesn’t mean hungry for food, but hungry for knowledge, for success, and for excitement and passion in life.
Every now and then our life starts to go stale . When routines become old news, you start to feel complacent. When comfort zone becomes too comfortable, you feel stagnant. So how do we keep ourselves thirsty and hungry for more out of life?
I’ve come to believe that it’s important to surround yourself with whom you aspire to become. Energy is contagious, positive or negative, passionate or bored/complacent.
If you surround yourself with people who are complacent with life, then you lose your hunger. If you surround yourself with driven , passionate, energetic people, then that drives your hunger up, inspires you, and motivates you.
So I’d say - Pick who you hang around with wisely. The energy from people around you has a serious effect on how you feel about life and the world.
