Jim Rohn Quotes: Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going. You cannot change your destination overnight. You can change your direction.
For Success is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well. It won’t happen overnight but it will happen if that is what you want.
That is exactly what Jim Rohn wanted, who went from doing ordinary things as a Farm Boy to extraordinarily well as one of the world’s greatest Motivators.
That’s right, Jim started out as an ordinary every day Farm Boy and went to greater heights in life.
You know What?
So can you, because you are worth it don’t you think?
Now although Jim did go to college it was only short lived. Jim Rohn only stayed less than 2 years. He felt he could do better dealing with work in real life than just sitting and hiding his head behind a book.
In his early 20’s he started working as a clerk, got married and like many others behind on the bills and down on their luck.
Jim wanted more out of his life but not sure how to go about it.
It wasn’t later that a friend of his mentioned that he worked for someone who was not only rich but an extremely wise person.
This man was presenting his philosophy on life and also spoke in a way others could relate to easily.
Jim Rohn sat down and listened to this man as he spoke. Jim couldn’t believe what he was hearing.
He found a new light in the world he lived in that he didn’t even know existed.
It was a world of opportunity, filled with secrets of wealth, prosperity, and happiness.
As he was listening to this speaker he realised that this is the same world he exists in.
It enables you to truly be anything you wanted to be and you could have anything you wanted to have!
As he was listening, an idea flashed before his eyes.
He knew he had to be associated with this person if he was to make something of himself and continue to learn more about these secrets of wealth and happiness.
After the speech, he went to this man and introduced himself.
That night his life changed for the better.
Not only was he inspired, but he also landed a job working for the same man he just went to see.
His name was John Earl Shoaff. and was known as “The Millionaire Maker”(More on John Earl Shoaff later).
So much so that John Shoaff became his personal mentor where Jim went from being a sales rep for My Shoaff’s companies to later becoming vice president of the organisation.
As a result over the next 6 years, Jim began making a fortune.
In the early 1960s, he began speaking at a local Rotary Club when asked to share his success story.
