“The Jim Rohn Guides”

This was one of his numerous educational brainchild diamonds in personal development and he explained them as a 5-step process:

Absorb. As you read, soak it all in. Take notes, highlight stuff, and even post what you have discovered on social media. The more you can absorb, the better.

Respond. Jim says, “Success is not just knowledge. Success is response to knowledge.” What can I do after reading this? What steps can I take to apply my knowledge?

Reflect. Take a few minutes at the end of each day to reflect on what you have learned.

Act. Jim says, “Disciplined action is what gives birth to ideas, enterprise and values. Without activity, ideas and dreams have no life.” How can I use these new ideas, right away? You may come away with some new insights.

Share. Tell somebody about it. Whether you tell your spouse, business partner, or your social media audience, retelling that story will lock it into your memory. That is why I’m sharing this with you. As I learn, I want to share my knowledge with everyone I know. Kyle Draper

3 lasting lessons from Jim Rohn who mentored Tony Robbins

1. Do more than you are expected to. One of the best pieces of advice Robbins says he has ever received came from Rohn, who told him that “the secret to life is to find a way to do more for others than anyone else is doing.”

2. Read 30 minutes every day. Rohn taught Robbins that it’s fine to miss a meal “but don’t miss your reading,”

3. Create rituals in order to reach your goals. Rohn also underscored the value of building good habits.


Jim Rohn taught the world skill, knowledge and wisdom through his quotes. Here are a few jewels:

“Do not wish it was easier, wish you were better. Wish not wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Do not wish for less challenges, wish for more wisdom.”

“If you do not 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.”

“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.”

“I used to say, ‘I sure hope things will change.’ Then I learned that the only way things are going to change for me is when I change.”

“One of the best places to start to turn your life around is by doing whatever appears on your mental ‘I should’ list.”

“Human beings have the remarkable ability to turn nothing into something. They can turn weeds into gardens and pennies into fortunes.”

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

Jim Rohn was a legend of skills…and how to use them

“Take time to gather up the past so that you will be able to draw from your experiences and invest them in the future.”

“Learn how to turn frustration into fascination. You will learn more being fascinated by life than you will be being frustrated by it.”

“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.”

“We all have two choices: We can make a living or we can design a life.”

“We must learn to apply all that we know so that we can attract all that we want.”

“Don’t borrow someone else’s plan. Develop your own philosophy and it will lead you to unique places.”

“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. You don’t have charge of the constellations, but you do have charge of whether you read, develop new skills, and take new classes.”

“Success is not so much what we have as it is what we are.”

“Resolve says, ‘I will.’ The man says, ‘I will climb this mountain. They told me it is too high, too far, too steep, too rocky and too difficult. But it’s my mountain. I will climb it. You will soon see me waving from the top or dead on the side from trying.”’
