In his famous commencement speech, Steve Jobs said:
"You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something--your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life."
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
By connecting the dots he means this:
The current life and the future may not be easily comparable. It is not easy for one to look at the present circumstances and dictate what will become of their life. They have to believe in something, maybe God, that the future will somehow work for them, then keep on moving. When the future has come, they can look back and fully comprehend what was happening then.
