Steve Jobs. The name that doesn’t just echo but blasts through the halls of tech history. Apple. The legacy. The titan of innovation. But hold up, let’s slice through the noise and get real. “This is why Steve Jobs never failed.” Clickbait? No. Fact.

Here’s the untold truth that hustlers and go-getters rarely whisper – pride kills dreams. You heard me. Most people are too proud to ask. They choke on their ego rather than spit out a simple question. But not Jobs. He knew the recipe for unparalleled success: Ask, Attempt, Ascend.

The masses parade with their chests puffed out, thinking, “Asking is beneath me.” They’ve got it all twisted. You know what’s really beneath you? Sitting there with your potential locked up, never seeing the light of day because you were too arrogant to ask.

Steve Jobs was different. The man didn’t just step out of the box; he crushed it beneath his feet. How? By asking. By learning. He wasn’t born knowing how to create an empire. He sought knowledge like a seeker hunts for gold. Every “no” he encountered was just another step towards that ultimate “yes.”

Imagine sitting there, potential bubbling up inside you like a volcano on the verge of eruption, and what do you do? Put a lid on it because you fear a little word like “no”? Jobs understood the stakes. Ask or stay stagnant. He chose to soar.

When Jobs returned to Apple in 1997, the company was on its knees, gasping for air. Did he shy away? No. He asked for help. Reached out to Bill Gates, of all people. Gates invested $150 million into Apple. Without the humility to ask, without the boldness to face potential rejection, Apple’s story would have been relegated to a paragraph in a history book, rather than chapters.

Real talk – if you never ask, it’s a guaranteed rejection. A self-imposed “no” without anyone else having to lift a finger. If you ask, sure, you might get slapped with a “no,” but you also swing the door wide open for the possibility of a “yes.” A chance at a win.

Jobs tossed the coin each time, betting on heads while everyone else feared tails. Every “no” was irrelevant; it only became part of his ascent to the throne of technology.

So, what’s it going to be? Are you going to be the forgotten, the one too proud to reach out? Or are you ready to pull a Jobs? Stumble, ask, learn, and crush it.

Because let’s face it, the Steve Jobs of the world, the icons, the game-changers… they never fail. They pivot, they adjust, but they never fail. The only failure is never trying.

Let’s get out there and disrupt. Let’s innovate. Let’s ask the questions that make others squirm because, in those questions, lies the path to revolution. The invisible thread that pulls us towards success – it’s right there. Grasp it.

In the end, your legacy hinges on the syllables you dare to utter and the questions you dare to ask. So, ask.









Most people are too proud to ask If you don’t ask it will definitely be a no but if you do ask it might still be a no but if you don’t try it won’t ever be a yes
