December 5th, 2009 · 3 Comments

It is a sad day.  Jim Rohn, one of the foremost motivational speakers died today Dec 5, 2009.  Almost every well know speaker in the success field today will admit to being influenced by Jim.  One of todays best know speakers, Tony Robbins, reportedly got his start in the motivational field working for Mr. Rohn.

Jim Rohn Quotes

Here are a couple of my favorite quotes from him. Jim, was a big proponent of reading for personal growth.

“Poor people have big screen TVs. Rich people have big libraries.”

“Don’t just read the easy stuff. You may be entertained by it, but you will never grow from it.”

“Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals.”

“Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better; Don’t wish for less problems wish for more skills”

“If you work hard on your job you can make a living.  If you work hard on yourself you can make a fortune”

If you are not familiar with him I suggest you get some of his materials and learn for yourself why he was so influential in the self development field. Here is a tribute from the Jim Rohn Website.

RIP Jim Rohn.
