Thoughts from Jim Rohn
Some of my favorite sayings from Jim Rohn.
Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you canoot get more time.
Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event. You don’t fail overnight. Instead, failure is a few errors in judgement, repeated every day.
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.
Don’t just read the easy stuff. You may be entertained by it, but you will never grow from it.
Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.
It is not what happens to you that makes the difference of how your life works out; what happens to you happens to all of us, it’s how you respond to what happens to you that determines the major outcome of your life.
The greatest source of unhappiness comes from inside. Conversely, that’s also where the greatest (and only) source of happiness comes from.
A good objective of leadership is to help those who are doing poorly to do well and to help those who are doing well to do even better.
Better understated than overstated. Let people be surprised that it was more than you promised and easier than you said.
Character isn’t something you were born with and can’t change, like your fingerprints. It’s something you weren’t born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better.
Effective communication is 20% what you know and 80% how you feel about what you know.
Either you run the day or the day runs you.
For every disciplined effort there is a multiple reward.
Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
Ideas can be life-changing. Sometimes all you need to open the door is just one more good idea.
