attitude, an act, an idea, a discovery.
Jim Rohn

Welcome all experiences. You never know which one is gonna turn everything on.
Jim Rohn

door for wealth and happiness.
Jim Rohn

Ants never quit. If they're going somewhere and you stop them or block their path, they'll
look for another way. Up, down, all around. How long will they keep looking? Till they find
another way. See, that's good philosophy.
Jim Rohn

You'll go for it until you understand it. Never give up until...
Jim Rohn

Let others argue over small things, but not you.

Let others leave their futures in other people's hands, but not you. 
Jim Rohn

Ignorance is not bliss. Ignorance is poverty. Ignorance is devastation. Ignorance is tragedy.

Jim Rohn

Without a sense of urgency, desire loses its value.
Jim Rohn

The only thing worse than not reading a book in the last ninety days is not reading a book in
the last ninety days and think that it does not matter.
Jim Rohn

Resolve says, "I will." The man says, "I will climb this mountain. They told me it is too high,
too steep, too rocky, and too difficult. But it's my mountain. I will climb it. You will soon see
me waving from the top or dead on the side from trying."
Jim Rohn

The best place to solve a problem is on paper.
Jim Rohn

Sharing makes you bigger than you are. The more you pour out, the more life will be able to
pour in.
Jim Rohn

People often ask me how I became successful in that six-year period of time while many of
the people I knew did not. The answer is simple: The things I found to be easy to do, they
found to be easy not to do. I found it easy to set the goals that could change my life. They
found it easy not to do. I found it easy to read the books that could affect my thinking and
my ideas. They found that easy not to do. I found it easy to attend the classes and the
seminars, and to get around other successful people. They said it probably wouldn't matter.
If I had to sum it up, I would say what I found to be easy to do, they found to be easy not
to do. Six years later, I'm a millionaire and they are still blaming the economy, the
government, and company policies, yet they neglected to do the basic, easy things.
Jim Rohn

There are two ways to gather wisdom. One way is to learn from your own life. The second is
to study the lives of others.
Jim Rohn

An ancient script asks, "Would you let a man rule the city who cannot even rule his own
spirit?" Sometimes we do.

Make rest a necessity, not an objective. Only rest long enough to gather strength.
Jim Rohn

One of the best places to start to turn your life around is by doing whatever appears on your
mental "I should" list.
Jim Rohn

It is not what happens that determines the major part of your future. What happens,
happens to us all. It is what you do about what happens that counts.
Jim Rohn

Life was not designed to give us what we need - life was designed to give us what we deserve.
Jim Rohn

Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of
consistently applying basic fundamentals.
Jim Rohn

Very few of us are authorities on the truth. About the closest that any of us can get is what
we hope is the truth or what we think is the truth. That's why the best approach to truth is
probably to say, "It seems to me..." There is nothing wrong with affirmations, provided what
you are affirming is the truth. If you are broke, for example, the best thing to affirm is, "I'm
broke!" If the truth isn't enough, then you must become stronger at presenting it. Sincerity
is not a test of truth. We must not make this mistake: He must be right, he's so sincere. It is
possible to be sincerely wrong. We can only judge truth by truth and sincerity by sincerity.
Find someone who is willing to share the truth with you.
Jim Rohn

Humility is a virtue; timidity is a disease.
Jim Rohn

Knowledge fueled by emotion equals action.
Jim Rohn

Books are easy to find and easy to buy. A paperback these days only costs six or seven
dollars. You can borrow that from your kids!
Jim Rohn

The word "tip" stands for "to ensure promptness." So when should you give it? Upfront, of
course. Sophisticated people don't take chances on poor service, they ensure good service.
Jim Rohn

Friends are those wonderful people who know all about you and still like you.
Jim Rohn
