One of the greatest orators of our time was Jim Rohn. One of the things I noticed while listening to Jim Rohn leadership audios is how personal growth is an integral component in everyone’s journey to success; not just in business, but in life. In business it is more than integral, it is mission critical. Without personal growth you can never truly become the person you need to be for you to arrive at success. That’s not to say you can make money, heck no, you can make all kinds of money without growing as a person. But if you want true wealth or “walk away income”, you will need to learn to build others in their journeys and for that you must grow.
The Jim Rohn leadership philosophies are rooted in the concept, “Learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job”. That’s a huge statement. When was the last time you read a book that taught you about yourself? When was the last time you took a course? If you can’t remember or the answer is never then YOU MESSED UP! That’s right I said it, you messed up. The negative people of the World (whom I suggest you avoid) will tell you that this idea of self growth or improvement is just “drinking the Kool-Aid”. I for one am here to tell you DRINK THE KOOL-AID all day long if it is going to make you happier, more successful and more willing to do more with your life. Watch this short video to understand more of what I mean.
My favorite Kool-Aid flavor is whatever flavor is being served from the jug marked Jim Rohn leadership on the side of the jug. Or any flavor being served up by any number of incredible authors/mentors who are teaching me to think more clearly and more positively about my life and business.
The magic word is “until”! What the heck am I talking about now? Well…..I will read more book UNTIL my skill set changes, I will keep finding ways to make it work UNTIL success happens. The power of one little word can change the course of your life forever. I will do __________ UNTIL _______ happens. Fill in the blanks. Whatever you want to accomplish can be done and will be done if you keep at it UNTIL it happens. This may require learning a new skill, reading a few books or finding a mentor to keep you on the right track. I have learned so much basic information from any of the Jim Rohn leadership audios/videos I have invested my time in to. It’s not just about business or money….it’s about you.
To Your Unlimited Success,
