Gems from Jim Rohn

  1. Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become.
  2. Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event.
  3. You don'tfail overnight. Instead, failure is a few errors injudgment, repeated every day.
  4. Don't take the casual approach to life. Casualness leads to casualties.
  5. Success is the study of the obvious. Everyone shouldtake Obvious I and Obvious II in school.
  6. It's too bad failures don't give seminars. Wouldn'tthat be valuable?
  7. If you meet a guy who has messed up his life for forty years, you've just got to say,"John, if I bring my journal and promise to take goodnotes, would you spend a day with me?"
  8. Success is not so much what we have as it is what we are.Success is 20% skills and 80% strategy.
  9. You might know how to read, but more importantly, what's your plan to read?
  10. Average people look for ways of getting away with it;successful people look for ways of getting on with it.
  11. You cannot take the mild approach to the weeds in your mental garden. You have got to hate weeds enough to kill them.
  12. Weeds are not something you handle; weeds are something you devastate.
  13. Humility is a virtue; timidity is a disease.
  14. Effective communication is 20% what you know and 80%how you feel about what you know.
  15. What is powerful is when what you say is just the tip of the iceberg of what you know.
  16. If you spend five minutes complaining, you have just wasted five minutes. If you continue complaining, itwon't be long before they haul you out to a financialdesert and there let you choke on the dust of your own regret.
  17. Do preserve yourself and others while evolving continuously...
