45 Life Changing Tips From Jim Rohn

45 Life Changing Tips From Jim Rohn

One of the greatest things that has ever happened to me in my life was getting the chance to meet Jim Rohn or E. James Rohn. The first time I had saw him, I didn’t actually get to meet him. At the young age of 16, I saved up enough allowance to attend his seminar at the Brisbane City Town Hall. While listening in that audience, I felt like he was speaking directly to me and ultimately his wisdom changed the course of my life. Even still this day, his words and affirmations still hold true to this day as he continues to be one of the most influential people in my life. Here are 45 of the biggest life changing tips from Jim Rohn.

  1. Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better.
  2. If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree.
  3.  Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
  4. 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.
  5. Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event. You don’t fail overnight. Instead, failure is a few errors in judgement, repeated every day.
  6. Affirmation without discipline is the beginning of delusion.
  7. Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
  8. If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Maturity is the ability to reap without apology and not complain when things don’t go well.
  12. The few who do are the envy of the many who only watch.
  13. The major reason for setting a goal is for what it makes of you to accomplish it.
  14. The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy.
  15. Success is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.
  16. Either you run the day or the day runs you.
  17. Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
  18. Get around people who have something of value to share with you.
  19.  You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight.
  20. Learn how to separate the majors and the minors. A lot of people don’t do well simply because they major in minor things.
  21. Don’t mistake movement for achievement.
  22. Learn how to say no.
  23. Don’t let your mouth overload your back.
  24. Good people are found, not changed.
  25. Your personal philosophy is the greatest determining factor in how your life works out.
  26. To become financially independent, you must turn part of your income into capital; turn capital into enterprise; enterprise into profit; turn a profit into an investment and turn the investment into financial independence.
  27. We can have more than we’ve got because we can become more than we are
  28. Happiness is not an accident. Nor is it something you wish for. Happiness is something you design.
  29. Your family and your love must be cultivated like a garden. Time, effort, and imagination must be summoned constantly to keep any relationship flourishing and growing.
  30. It’s easy to carry the past as a burden instead of a school.
  31. I find it fascinating that most people plan their vacations with better care than they plan their lives.
  32. “Don’t set you goals too low. If you don’t need much, you won’t become much.”
  33. “Don’t join an easy crowd; you won’t grow. Go where the expectations and the demands to perform are high.”
  34. “One of the greatest gifts you can give to anyone is the gift of attention.”
  35. “Economic disaster begins with a philosophy of doing less and wanting more.”
  36. “My father taught me to always do more than you get paid as an investment in your future.”
  37. “Some things you have to do every day. Eating about seven apples on Saturday night instead of one a day just isn’t going to get the job done.”
  38. “If we relax, the bugs and weeds of negativity will move into the garden and take away everything of value.”
  39. “Humility is a virtue; timidity is a disease.”
  40. “Learn how to be happy with what you have while you pursue all that you want.”
  41. “Humans have the remarkable ability to get exactly what they must have. But there is a difference between a must and a want.”
  42. “Make rest a necessity, not an objective.”
  43. “We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment.”
  44. “The worst thing one can do is not to try, to be aware of what one wants and not give in to it, to spend years in silent hurt wondering if something could have materialized – never knowing.”
  45. “Read a book a week for the rest of your life.”
