Jim Rohn

One of our favourite sources of inspiration is the late and much-missed Jim Rohn.  Here are some of our favourite quotes from Jim.

  • “You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.”
  • “Asking is the beginning of receiving. Make sure you don’t go to the ocean with a teaspoon. At least take a bucket so the kids won’t laugh at you.”
  • “Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.”
  • “Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better.”
  • “Failure is simply a few errors in judgment, repeated every day.”
  • “Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day. “
  • “To solve any problem, here are three questions to ask yourself: First, what could I do? Second, what could I read? And third, who could I ask?”
  • “The book you don’t read won’t help.”
  • “Give whatever you are doing and whoever you are with the gift of your attention.”
  • “The major reason for setting a goal is for what it makes of you to accomplish it. What it makes of you will always be the far greater value than what you get.”
  • “Either you run the day or the day runs you.”
  • “Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become.”
  • “Time is more value than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.”
  • “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.”
  • “The few who do are the envy of the many who only watch.”
  • “You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight.”
  • “Work harder on yourself than you do on your job.”
  • “When you know what you want, and want it bad enough, you will find a way to get it.”

And finally,

  • “The major value in life is not what you get. The major value in life is what you become.”
