Give to yourself the gift of patience, the virtue of
reason, the value of knowledge, and the
influence of faith in your own ability to dream
about and achieve worthy rewards.

   

Be sensitive to the plight of others.  You have to know about the tragedies as well as the triumphs, the failures as well as the success.

      
Every life form seems to strive to its maximum except human beings.  How tall will a tree grow? As tall as it possibly can. Human beings, on the other hand, have been given the dignity of choice. You can choose to be all or you can choose to be less. Why not stretch up to the full measure of the challenge and see what all you can do?
  
  
Let others lead small lives, but not you.  Let others argue over small things, but not you.  Let others cry over small hurts, but not you.  Let others leave their future in someone else's hands, but not you.
  
Everything you need for your better future and success has already been written.  And guess what?  It's all available.  All you have to do is go to the library.  But would you believe that only three percent of the people in America have a library card?  Wow, they must be expensive!  No, they're free.  And there's probably a library in every neighborhood.  Only three percent!
   

Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day; while failure is simply a few errors in judgment, repeated every day. It is the accumulative weight of our disciplines and our judgments that leads us to either fortune or failure.
  
  
There is no better opportunity to receive more than to be thankful for what you already have. Thanksgiving opens the windows of opportunity for ideas to flow your way.

     

The best advice I ever came across on the subject of concentration is: Wherever you are, be there.

Learning is the beginning of wealth.  Learning is the beginning of health.
Learning is the beginning of spirituality.  Searching and learning
is where the miracle process all begins.

   

One of the greatest gifts you can give to anyone is the gift of attention.

   

Fascination is one step beyond interest. Interested people want to know
if it works. Fascinated people want to learn how it works.

   
    
I remember saying to my mentor, "If I had more money, I would
have a better plan." He quickly responded, "I would suggest that
if you had a better plan, you would have more money." You see,
it's not the amount that counts; it's the plan that counts.
   

The big challenge is to become all that you have the possibility of becoming.
You cannot believe what it does to the human spirit to maximize your
human potential and stretch yourself to the limit.

    
Jim Rohn has been internationally honored as one of the most influential thinkers of our time.  His profound business philosophy, visionary insight, and motivaitional messages have made him a popular speaker, writer, and counselor.  Over the past 37 years, he has addressed over 5,000 audiences and 3 million people worldwide.  He is the recipient of the 1985 National Speakers Association CPAE Award and is the author of 17 different books, audio and video programs.

Referred to by many as the greatest motivational speaker of all time, Jim Rohn always approaches the subjects of personal and business success by asking four questions:  Why?  Why not?  Why not you? and Why not now?  He then goes on to answer those and related questions, revealing practical, perceptive secrets for success and productivity.  His special style, laced with witticisms and anecdotes, captivates listeners, igniting their enthusiasm and "can-do" spirit.

Among his most thought-provoking topics are: sales and entrepreneurial skills, leadership, sales and marketing, success and personal development.  Jim Rohn is the best-selling author of numerous powerful audio and video training programs such as The Art of Exceptional Living, The Power of Ambition, and Developing an Unshakable Character.  His dynamic Weekend Seminars give motivation and encouragement to thousands each year.  Jim passed away in 2011.
