As with any success story, bizarre moments are imperative in shaping the story's outcome. For Steve Jobs, this moment came in 1985 when he was fired from Apple. In his commencement speech at Stanford in 2005, Jobs recognized his firing as being "the best thing that had ever happened to him" as it freed him to enter one of the most creative periods of his life.
If it had not been for Apple's bizarre decision to fire Jobs, it's possible that we'd live in a world today without Pixar's Toy Story, the Mac, the iPod, the iPhone and all of the other amazing feats that Jobs accomplished during his lifetime.
Since it's relocation from Quebec in 1995, the Colorado Avalanche have also experienced a great deal of success.
