Jim Rohn quotes page 5

Here is what my teacher taught me: "When you change, everything will change for you.
When you get better, everything will get better for you."
Jim Rohn

You don't have to change the marketplace; you don't have to change the marketing plan;
you don't have to change the economy; you don't have to change countries. You don't
have to change circumstances out there. All you've got to do is look within and see if you
can change yourself for the better and as you change, things will start to change for you.
Jim Rohn

Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.
Jim Rohn

If you make money your love and you pursue affluence to the exclusion of or at the expense
of other values, you have lost, not won.
Jim Rohn

Jim Rohn

Don't just read the easy stuff. You may be entertained by it, but you will never grow from it.
Jim Rohn

no control over your value, but you do.
Jim Rohn

Kids don't lack capacity, only teachers.
Jim Rohn

The most fatal deterrent to confidence is guilt... Lack of confidence comes from two major
things. First - no goals or plan. And second - no daily discipline to achieve. The inaction to
cure or handle small tasks is what starts the guilt process.
Jim Rohn

Time is the most precious commodity we have. Therefore, how we manage it has the most
profound effect on how our lives turn out.
Jim Rohn

If you were to show me your current financial plan, would I get so excited by it that I would
go across the country and lecture on it? If the answer is no, then here's my question: "Why
not?" Why wouldn't you have a superior financial plan that is taking you to the places you
want to go?
Jim Rohn

The least lack of discipline starts to erode our self-esteem.
Jim Rohn

Work harder on yourself than you do on your job. If you work hard on your job you can make
a living, which is fine. If you work harder on yourself you can make a fortune, which is
super-fine.
Jim Rohn

There are three things to leave behind: Your photographs, your library, and your personal
journals. These things are certainly going to be more valuable to future generations than your
furniture.
Jim Rohn

Finding is reserved for the searchers. Not those who hope, not those who wish. But those
who search.
Jim Rohn

Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the
present.
Jim Rohn

All disciplines affect each other. Mistakenly the man says, "This is the only area where I let
down." Not true. Every let down affects the rest. Not to think so is naive.
Jim Rohn

Disgust and resolve are two of the great emotions that lead to change.
Jim Rohn

Don't join an easy crowd; you won't grow. Go where the expectations and the demands to
perform are high.
Jim Rohn

Your personal philosophy is the greatest determining factor in how your life works out.
Jim Rohn

If you make a sale, you make a living. If you make an investment of time and good service in
a customer, you can make a fortune.
Jim Rohn

instead of educate you.
Jim Rohn

Pity the man who inherits a million dollars and who isn't a millionaire. Here's what would be
pitiful: If your income grew and you didn't.
Jim Rohn

Rarely does a good idea interrupt you. But if you search you will find.
Jim Rohn

Opportunity is attracted by talent and ability. You don't present "need" to opportunity. It's like
asking the soil for an advance.
Jim Rohn

I found it easier to get rich than I did to make excuses.
Jim Rohn

Motivation is a mystery. Why does one salesperson see his first prospect at seven in the
morning and another salesperson is just getting out of bed at eleven? I don't know. It's part
of the mysteries of life. Give a lecture to thousand people. One walks out and says, "I'm
going to change my life." Another one walks out with a yawn, muttering to himself: "I've
heard all this before." Why is that? Why wouldn't both be affected the same way? Another
mystery. The millionaire says to a thousand people, "I read this book and it started me on the
road to wealth." Guess how many go out and get the book? Very few. Isn't that incredible?
Why wouldn't everyone get the book? A mystery of life. My suggestion would be to walk
away from the 90% who don't and join the 10% who do.
Jim Rohn

Don't sell out your virtue and your value for something you think you want. Judas got the
money, but he threw it all away and hung himself because he was so unhappy with himself.
Jim Rohn

The ultimate reason for setting goals is to entice you to become the person it takes to
achieve them.
Jim Rohn

You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight.
Jim Rohn

Never begin the day until it is finished on paper.
Jim Rohn

Succeeding in America is easy! That's why everyone wants to come here. People haven't
plotted and schemed for the last 50 years saying, "If I could just get to Poland, everything
would be ok."
Jim Rohn

America is unique because it offers you an economic ladder to climb. And here's what's
exciting: It is the bottom of the ladder that is crowded, not the top.
Jim Rohn
