Celebrating Jim Rohn

Personal-development legend Jim Rohn (born 9/17/30) authored an impressive number of books, audio and video programs and helped shape an entire generation of personal-development trainers including Tony Robbins (who worked for Rohn in the late '70s). Others who credit Rohn for his influence on their careers include Jack Canfield, Brian Tracy, T. Harv Eker and Chris Widener.

Here are some quotes to motivate you and inspire you to work on your personal development:

Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better.

Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.

If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree.

If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.

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

It doesn’t matter which side of the fence you get off on sometimes. What matters most is getting off. You cannot make progress without making decisions.

If someone is going down the wrong road, he doesn’t need motivation to speed him up. What he needs is education to turn him around.

We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment.

Don’t mistake movement for achievement.

It’s easy to get faked out by being busy. The question is: Busy doing what?

The few who do are the envy of the many who only watch.

It’s easy to carry the past as a burden instead of a school. It’s easy to let it overwhelm you instead of educate you.

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

If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.

Either you run the day or the day runs you.

You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.

You must either modify your dreams or magnify your skills.

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Jim Rohn shared his success philosophies and principles for over 46 years,
