4 life lessons Jim Rohn

4 Must Learn Life Lessons from Jim Rohn

I was at work when I received a call from my Daughter. 

Mum, we’ve got no Broadband, can you fix it?

I unleashed my technical skills on them and asked if they had restarted and checked the cables and connection to the router were secure.

So as it turns out we had no broadband during the bank holiday weekend.

I was pissed off that we did not have broadband over the bank holiday weekend but two good out comes came out of this.

First, I found out that I have been paying £61 a month for 11-14mbps broadband on as you can guess normal BT line.

I cannot wait till we get fiber optics.

So the lesson here is that check your bank statements as I could have caputured this a year ago.

I did find other stuff that I have been paying unknowingly.

Second I took this opportunity of having no broadband to listen to CD’s and quality  family time.

My CD collection includes Jim Rohn, Darren Hardy, Jeff Olson, Eric Worre and others.

You are probably shaking your head wondering why I am telling you stories about my broadband being down.

Stop with the rolling of eyes already because I would like to share some takeaways from Jim Rohn.

Plus I wanted to share how I turned a negative situation into a positive one.

Here are the 4 of Jim Rohn’s life lessons I would like to share.

 

Define Your Philosophy

If you have listened to Rim Rohn, then you will know that he is big on Philosophy.

(Sounds better in his voice)

You have to define your Philosophy, think and strengthen your mind.

 If you blame the only things that you have to work with the Houston, we’ve got a problem.

You cannot blame the weather, government, boss, traffic, you get what I mean.

If your philosophy is wrong then you take wrong actions.

Hence you have to change your Philosophy.  And how do you do this is through study.

Ideas take form from information and in order to FIND valuable information you must SEEK and you search by reading and learning.

And when you find a good idea you must capture it, write it down.

Learn from other people’s experiences and read a lot.

Humans cannot live on bread alone.  You need to nourish your mind.

Invest in yourself, books, mentors, coaches’ masterminds etc.

You Need A Good library 

Every house needs a library. In fact he said that all houses over $200,00 dollars have a library.

The two books that he mentions to get you started were:

“Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill

“How to Read a Book” by Mortimer Adler

Okay and just like diet, the mind needs a balanced diet so here are some categories that Jim recommends you should have in your library to get you started.

History – Lessons of History by Will Durrant

Philosophy – The story of philosophy by Will Durrant) basically  don’t just read the easy stuff.

Biographies – The Bible, Ghandi and Hitler, mix them up not only the good people.

Law

Accounting

Economics

Novels

Have a variety of books.

Keep A Journal

Do not trust your memory write everything down. 

That is not the only reason to Journal.

In fact I am reading a book called “how to journal and make sh*t happen” by Kat Loterzo.

It is well worth it and goes into much detail and full of practical exercises

I would recommend you get a copy.

 

Personal Development

Start doing different things in the same circumstances. 

What you have at the moment, you have attracted with what you have become. His words not mine but I see where he is coming from.

Change what is inside.

Don’t wish for it to be easier but wish you were better

Don’t wish for less problems wish for more skills

Don’t wish for less challenge wish for more wisdom

You get paid for bringing value to the market place.

You cannot get rich by demand; you have to become more valuable to the market place.

There are three treasures to leave behind according to Jim Rohn.

  1. Pictures
  2. Journals
  3. Library

It’s much better listening to his voice so go ahead and get some audios/ videos and listen for yourself.
