Farewell Jim Rohn

Filed under: Business,Florida News |

Sad news has reached us today that American entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker Jim Rohn passed away. Over the past 18 months Jim battled with Pulmonary Fibrosis but he never gave up or gave in.

Born to an Idaho farming family, Jim Rohn began his early adulthood without acclaim, leaving college after his first year, starting a family, and trying to get by as best he could as a salaried worker. By age 25 (according to his accounts), he was in a personal rut familiar to many middle-class families who were in debt, unable to see a way that would lead to his personal ambitions.

Around this time, he was introduced to John Earl Shoaff, an entrepreneur who impressed Rohn with his wealth, business accomplishments, charisma and life philosophy. Rohn joined Shoaff’s direct sales organization, and began a process of personal development that culminated in his becoming a millionaire by age 31. Unfortunately, Shoaff, who had challenged Rohn to reach for this goal, died one year before Rohn achieved it.

In the years that followed, Rohn discovered a demand from people outside his industry to hear his rags to riches stories, and the personal development philosophy that he felt had led to his accomplishments.

He has addressed over 6,000 audiences and 4 million people worldwide over a period of more than 40 years.. He was the recipient of the 1985 National Speakers Association CPAE Award. He was also the author of 17 different books, audio and video programs but will best be remembered for the way he put things across. Here are a few of my favorites:

“Rich People Have Big Libraries…Poor People Have Big TV’s”

“Character isn’t something you were born with and can’t change, like your fingerprints. It’s something you weren’t born with and must take responsibility for forming.”

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

“You don’t get paid for the hour. You get paid for the value you bring to the hour. “

“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.”

Jim Rohn’s “Five Major Pieces To the Life Puzzle”

* Philosophy – how you think
* Attitude – how you feel
* Action – what you do
* Results – measure often to see if you are making progress
* Lifestyle – the kind of life you can make for yourself out of the first four pieces

Goodbye Jim…we’re going to miss you.
