Jim Rohn – The Challenge to Succeed – Defining your Skills – CD3
Learning Lessons from the Audio CD (as interpreted & understood by me)
You should associate with Miracle Workers – The workers when given a problem, their answer is “No Problem”
Do what you can, Do the Best you can!
Do more than what you get paid for!
Labor versus Rest – First labor hard and then rest.
If you rest too long the weeds take over the garden.
Success is a refined study of Obvious.
Develop the skills – Skills make labor more valuable. If you labor you make a living. If you skilfully labor you make a Fortune.
FOURTH MAJOR PIECE TO LIFE’S PUZZLE – RESULTS
Look at the results to see if your philosophy, your activity is working or not
Make measurable progress in reasonable time – What is reasonable time to measure the progress – End of day; End of Week; End of Month; End of Quarter; Annually.
The numbers tell the whole story.
Questions asked by Earl Shoaff (Jim Rohn’s Mentor)
- How much money you have saved and invested in last six years?
- In last 90 days how many books have you read?
- In last six months how many classes have you taken to improve yourself?
All of us need to ask similar questions to see where we are in life.
Success is a numbers game – Take charge of your own life – If you will change, everything will change for you.
Put together an “AT LEAST” list- i.e. at Least I need to do this…..
FIFTH MAJOR PIECE TO LIFE’S PUZZLE – LIFESTYLE
This is the ultimate challenge of Life.
Take your results and FASHION your good life.
Two things told by Earl Shoaff to Jim Rohn
If you wish to be wealthy – Study Wealth
If you wish to be happy – Study Happiness
Happiness is not by accident, happiness is by purpose! Happiness is an Art, not an amount, not an account, it is a study.
Happiness must be woven with care. It is a learned art. Learn to weave, do not leave it to chance or accident. Weave your happiness with care.
ON PERSONAL DEVLEOPMENT
We get paid to bring value to the marketplace. It takes time to get the value but we do not get paid for the time but the value we provide. If we become valuable it is possible to make twice, thrice or ten times the money in same amount of time.
There is plenty of room on the top, it is bottom that is crowded.
Main thing is make yourself more VALUABLE!
WORK HARDER ON YOURSELF THAN YOU DO ON YOUR JOB
If you work hard on your job you will make a living, if you work hard on yourself you will make a fortune.
Remember – God’s arm is not Short – He can reach all the way and he can reach everybody.
DON’T SETTLE FOR LESS THAN YOU CAN BE!
Strive for perfection.
ON SETTING GOALS
- Decide what you want – make a list
- Write it down
- Keep the old lists – To see how you have grown
- When you get something on your list – check it off
- It is your list – Put what you want on it!
