Stay Hungry and Stay Foolish

A Teen Leadership and Mentoring Blog


Dan Blanchard award-winning author, speaker and educator

Steve Jobs once said to stay hungry and stay foolish. I think he was really on to something here!

You see, teenagers have this natural gift being naive. The world is still fresh and anything can still be accomplished in their eyes. Teens are hungry to get out there and to take over the world. They are a bit foolish and don’t quite yet know the challenges that lay ahead of them. And that my friend is awesome!

But unfortunately, something happens to these same teens as they grow into adults. Sadly, they become more and more aware of the challenges, which by now are becoming problems in their eyes, as they think about trying something new.

The result is that they usually don’t try anything new. New challenges are just too much of a hassle. The kid in us dies… Don’t let this happen to you! As Steve Jobs said, “Stay hungry and stay foolish.” And as the most interesting man in the world says, “Stay thirsty my friend.”

Now, please share how you plan to use the success secret of Stay Hungry and Stay Foolish.


Thanks for your time,
