Jim Rohn: A Tribute to the Master of Self-Development


Share

Jim Rohn is a name I had not heard of prior to reading The Compound Effect by Success Magazines’s founder, Darren Hardy. He mentions Rohn over and over throughout the book and makes it very clear that the influence he had on his life was profound. In the last month or so, I’ve been reading a lot of quotes by Jim Rohn and reading about his life. Today would have been his 85th birthday, so on this day, I thought it would be fitting to share with you some of the most inspiring and profound quotes from the great, Jim Rohn.

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


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


 

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.

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

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.

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

Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day.


Success is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.


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

 


Either you run the day, or the day runs you.
