7 Traits That Made Steve Jobs Successful

Steve Jobs was a person with prodigious creativity and astonishing ideas about what the future should look like. He was a renowned innovator who reshaped entire industries by his intellectual mind, innovative ideas and unmatchable will-power, that gave consumers not only what they desired, but what they didn’t yet think they desired.

Steve Jobs

There were many traits that led Steve Jobs become the most successful entrepreneur of all time. His personality traits are role model for us in every way to achieve unimaginable success. A few of the traits that all the individuals, entrepreneurs and business owners can opt are:

1. Strong Vision

His vision for Apple was to develop products with simple user interface and elegant design would please greatly to all age groups. He saw how companies such as Microsoft were able to dominate the software market by developing and then licensing their operating system to run on multiple platforms. He was strongly against that approach. He wanted entire control over the user experience which he achieved by reducing his software to run on Apple products and gained full control over user experience in hardware and software.

2. Strong Leadership

The way he stood by his vision inspired his employees and granted great respect from his business partners and competitors. When he formed Apple in 1997 and the company was in financial crisis, he knew exactly how to get rid of almost all but a few of key products and projects that matched his vision. That led the resources and funds for Apple to survive and turned its finances around. Steve Jobs did not invite users into his design studios. He never depended on market research and never crowd-sourced the ideation process. Rather, he invited top designers (incl. Pixar’s John Lasseter and Apple’s Jony Ive) who admired his moderate aesthetics and followed his design’s simplicity. He and his team were dependent on themselves and their intimate feeling to develop products that users did not even think they needed such as the revolutionary iPod or iPhone.

3. Wonderful Thinking

Many entrepreneurs before Steve Jobs were great thinkers. But Steve Jobs was one of the greatest thinker of all time. Steve was a showman. He knew people were doubtful to new ideas. He’d put on a show to uncover and demonstrate his inventions so that you could understand his vision and get excited. He was also a self-admirer in a way that great entrepreneurs are great preachers as well. That is why he was also known for great presentations and public messages.

4. Exceptional Influence

One of the things that Steve Jobs was able to do very well was to create a beyond reality field, both in positive and negative ways for him. It helped to motivate his team to finish projects by desired deadlines (regardless of how impossible they seemed). He did this by addressing people passionately and having them see things from his eyes. He conveyed his vision repeatedly and had others believe in his mission.

5. Survivor of Tough Times

Even though at times he was weak and feeble due to cancer, he still assembled the strength to go to board meetings and even Apple product launches. If anyone saw any videos or pictures of his last days of life, you could have realized how weak and underfed he looked. He believed that our time is limited so we must have the courage to follow our heart and intuition and everything else is secondary.

6. Ready to Embrace Failure

After Steve Jobs built up Apple to be a multi-million dollar company, he was kicked out of his own company by the board over disputes on how he was running the company and his own personal visions. Therefore, after he got kicked out, he ended up starting NeXT—a new startup computer company which developed a next generation operating system (which was eventually used in OSX), and then he soon became the CEO of Pixar, which turned the small animations studio into a global animation behemoth with massive fame.

Eventually Jobs redeemed control of Apple, but his failure of getting kicked out of his own company helped push him to gain more experience at other companies, and make Apple an even great company.

7. Serial Reformer

If we think about Apple as a company, they didn’t necessarily invent things—instead they used existing concepts and products and made them phenomenal. For example, Steve Jobs first had the concept of a visual-based operating system from Xerox, with a system they called the ‘Xerod PARC’. He principally took the same concept and produced the original Mac, with a blend some enhancements and his vision. Steve Jobs even believe that good artists copy, great artists steal so he was never hesitant of stealing great ideas. ———————————————————————————————————————————-
