Jim Rohn

It isn't what the book costs; it's what it will cost if you don't read it.
Jim Rohn

One of my good friends always says, "Things don't just happen; things happen just."

Sales people should take lessons from their kids. What does the word "no" mean to a child?
Almost nothing.
Jim Rohn

There are no new fundamentals. You've got to be a little suspicious of someone who says,
"I've got a new fundamental." That's like someone inviting you to tour a factory where they
are manufacturing antiques.
Jim Rohn

Life responds to deserve and not to need. It doesn't say, "If you need, you will reap." It says,
If you plant, you will reap." The guy says, "I really need to reap." Then you really need to
plant.
Jim Rohn

The best way to get to the bottom of things is not to jump to conclusions but to ask
questions.

All the successful people with whom I have had contact are good readers. They read, read,
read. It's their curiosity that drives them to read. They simply have to know. They constantly
seek new ways to become better.
Jim Rohn

Here is the formula for failure: a few errors in judgement repeated every day. Why would we
repeat an error in judgement another day? Here is why: disaster doesn't usually fall on you at
the end of that first day.
Jim Rohn

Good people are found, not changed. Recently, I read a headline that said, "We don't teach

Jim Rohn

It's so easy to make a mistake in language if you aren't careful. What if you meant to say,
"What's troubling you?" and what you actually said was, "What's wrong with you?"
Jim Rohn

Capital in your business isn't what matters. It's not the money that buys you a future; it's
your skills that buy you a future. Money and no skills - and I'm telling you you're still poor.
Money and no ambition - where are you? Money and no courage - you're broke. A little bit of
money and a whole lot of courage - it's all we need. I'm looking for people, when I'm
recruiting back in those days, and the money didn't matter. What mattered to me was
somebody's willingness, somebody's ingenuity, somebody's willingness to try. Right? If they
had a dollar to invest, that was plenty for me. A dollar and some ambition - and I can show
you how to get rich and it will be one of the classic stories of the company. I go to recruit
somebody; they say, "I don't have any money." I've been looking for you for six months! Let
me show you how to do it without any money! Because here's the rules of capitalism; jot this
down: You can either buy and sell, or if you're in certain circumstances, you can sell and
buy. If you've got ambition. Now, if you haven't got ambition we can't cure that and money
won't cure lack of ambition. But if you've got a dollar and some ambition I'll show you how to
get rich. And even if you don't have a dollar I'll show you how to get rich because you can
sell and buy. Somebody says, "As soon as the product arrives I'll sell it." Then you don't
understand it. You don't understand the magic of fortune if you say, "I have to wait till it
gets here to sell it." And you probably don't understand the value of your own story. Once I
understood that I knew I was gonna be wealthy. That's why right in the beginning I started
giving big tips - I knew I was gonna be wealthy.
Jim Rohn

Kids are curious. Kids are watching ants while adults are stepping on them.
Jim Rohn

I used to say, "Things cost too much." Then my teacher straightened me out on that by
saying, "The problem isn't that things cost too much. The problem is that you can't afford
it." That's when I finally understood that the problem wasn't "it" - the problem was "me."
Jim Rohn
