12 quotes from the masters to kickstart your week

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’d know that each Monday morning I share some inspirational quotes.

They’ve become very popular with thousands of readers each week.

So here are 12 great vitamins for the mind from two great masters: Jim Rohn and Brian Tracy…

  1. “I remember saying to my mentor, ‘If I had more money, I would have a better plan.’ He quickly responded, ‘I would suggest that if you had a better plan, you would hJim Rohn_2015ave more money.’ You see, it’s not the amount that counts; it’s the plan that counts.” – Jim Rohn
  2. “At least 80% of millionaires are self-made. That is, they started with nothing but ambition and energy, the same way most of us start.” – Brian Tracy
  3. “The philosophy of the rich versus the poor is this: The rich invest their money and spend what is left; the poor spend their money and invest what’s left.” – Jim Rohn
  4.  “Many people think you have to be very intelligent to be successful in life. Exhaustive research shows that many self-made millionaires have only average intelligence.” – Brian Tracy
  5.  “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.” – Jim Rohn
  6.  “All lasting wealth comes from enriching others in some way.” – Brian Tracy
  7.  “The common characteristic of self-made millionaires is that they continually work harder and smarter than the average person.” – Brian Tracy
  8. “Shortly after I met my mentor he asked me, ‘Mr. Rohn, how much money have you saved and invested over the last six years?’ And I said, ‘None.’ He then asked, ‘Who sold you on that plan?'” – Jim Rohn33836502_l
  9. “Those who start with too little money are more likely to succeed than those who start with too much. Energy and imagination are the springboards to wealth creation.” – Brian Tracy
  10. “The key factor that will determine your financial future is not the economy; the key factor is your philosophy.” – Jim Rohn
  11. “Economists say the inability to delay gratification is a primary predictor of economic failure in life.” – Brian Tracy
  12. “If you were to show me your current financial plan, would I get so excited by it that I would go across the country and lecture on it? If the answer is no, then here’s my question: ‘Why not?’ Why wouldn’t you have a superior financial plan that is taking you to the places you want to go?” – Jim Rohn
