Until I started in digital marketing I wasn’t familiar with Jim Rohn’s work, in the last 18 months or so I’ve heard many successful digital entrepreneurs recommend Jim Rohn book and videos as well as see them share his many inspiring quotes, but I’m a little embarrassed to admit, I never did check him out, not until a few days ago when I was preparing for this article.
Now, NOW (I’m a slow learner sometimes) I completely get what all the Jim Rohn buzz I about. The guy’s not only rather enchanting to watch and listen, but he gives absolutely golden advice. As he speaks, I find myself thinking, ‘that makes perfect sense, how did I not figure that out for myself already?’
This video clip plus a few others I’ve seen come from a much longer (approx 4.30 mins) video recording of a Personal Development given in the 1990’s after the launch of his book The Five Major Pieces to the Life Puzzle, one of many books written by one of the most inspiring Personal Developers of modern times. The full length video covers the 5 pieces and is well worth listening to, this is life-changing information.
Jim Rohn was broke and in debt at 25 years old. When a friend invited him to a lecture by John Earl Shoaff his life began on a new path. He then went to work for John Earl Shoaff and continued to be mentored by him. It was when he was invited to speak at his Rotary Club, from there he continued to be asked to speak and carved out a career in personal development.
There are so many pearls of wisdom in this short clip that it’s difficult to say one thing jumped out at me. The message is, we must stop blaming the outside world, the economy, the taxes, the weather, the neighbors etc for where we are in our lives.
Our entire world, like his, can change fairly immediately once we spend time working on changing ourselves. Read books, learn new things, develop new habits, take care of the physical and mental. Rohn challenges us to begin change by doing something different for 60 days! Well if you weren’t following us for the 90 days of inspiration, now’s a great time to start.
Below are a list of some of his most inspirational lines from this video…
You won’t regret watching this and I highly recommend the full talk.
KEY QUOTES: (Quote transcription credit http://whichphoenixareyou.blogspot.com/)

“It`s not what happens that determines the major part of your future. What happens it happens to us all. The key is what you do about it.

Explanation about your value in marketplace — important

“All you have to do to earn more money in the same time is simply, become more valuable”
“That’s kinda pitiful way to live. Start and not grow? Start and not change? Start and not become more valuable? The whole scenario of life is to start and become more valuable.”
“You can`t get rich by demand”

“Learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job”
“If you work hard on your job, you make a living. If you work hard on yourself, you can make a fortune.”
“You just go to work on the right thing. Not get things out here to change. Don`t try to change the seed, don`t change the soil, don`t change the sunshine, don`t change the rain, don`t change the mixes of seasons. Let the miracle of everything that is available work for you and start working on the inside. Work on your philosophy, work on your attitude, work on your personality, work on your language, work on the gift of communication, work on all your abilities, and if you`ll start making those personal changes, everything will change for you.”
