10 Inspirational Quotes From Jim Rohn

The late Jim Rohn was a gifted storyteller with dynamic delivery and thought-provoking substance.

His philosophy was an important influence on me as I was growing my wealth and business so today I’d like to start the week with a collection of his quotes:

1. “To become financially independent you must turn part of your income into capital; turn capital into enterprise, turn enterprise into profit; turn profit into investment; and turn investment into financial independence.”


3.  “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.”

4.  “There is no better opportunity to receive more than to be thankful for what you already have. Thanksgiving opens up the windows of opportunity for ideas to flow your way.”

5. “Goals. There’s no telling what you can do when you get inspired by them. There’s no telling what you can do when you believe in them. There’s no telling what will happen when you act upon them.”


7. “Don’t sell out your virtue and your value for something you think you want. Judas got the money, but he threw it all away and hung himself because he was so unhappy with himself.” 

8. “Values were meant to be costly. If it doesn’t cost much, we probably wouldn’t appreciate the value.”

9. “If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree.”

10. “Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.”

And your bonus for this week:

    This is great Michael – thanks for sharing. I am a huge JR fan, I consider him my mentor. Jim reminds me everyday that life doesn’t get better by chance, but by choice. Thank you Jim and Michael.

    I like the one about “No one pays you for the working time but for the value you create”.
    I wish all students and future employees and employers strived with such attitude than the whole world would be so much better off.
    Or the one, “you cannot change the circumstances but you can change YOURSELF!”.

    If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they may have planned for you? Not much.” – One of my favourite Jim Rohn quotes
