Trapped by Dogma

Part of a brilliant speech by Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple & Pixar at the commencement address at Stanford University. Personal and an incredible message.

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.
Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other
people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out
your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow
your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want
to become. Everything else is secondary."

Personal Opinion: I think in Kuwait we are extremely trapped by dogma. Rules and regulations put into our place by our ancestors for various reasons. Some deserve the respect we give them, some are just outdated ideas that need to be rejected and removed from our society. This dogma will not be changed until people such as YOU and I refuse to be trapped by it, and instead stand up to our beliefs that actually make sense. Therefore, please next time you feel yourself trapped, break through the barriers and make a change. Every person and every step counts.
