Jim Rohn was one of the most influential thinkers of our time and a leader in the field of personal development. In a recent podcast, Brian shared how Jim’s principles profoundly impacted and improved his approach to business and to life. Here are some of the top takeaways:

Self-education can make you a fortune

Jim was a huge advocate of self-education and would often say that a successful business owner never stops learning. Ironically, in today’s world many people get into enormous debt for a college education they might never use, but they hesitate to enroll in a coaching program that will help them build the kind of long-lasting success they dream of. If you want to thrive in business, you must keep learning. Work harder on yourself than you do on your job, and you’ll go from making a living to making a fortune.

Develop your philosophy

Jim believed that your income is determined by your philosophy, not the economy. To develop your own personal philosophy, you must first reflect on what it is you’re working for – why did you start in business in the first place? Then, it’s absolutely crucial to write goals. As Jim used to say when it came to 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, and there’s no telling what will happen when you act upon them.” Finally, if you want the results, you have to do the work – so get to it!

Be a person of action

Once you’ve developed your personal philosophy, you need to act – and that means perfecting the fundamentals. As Jim said, “Success is neither magical nor mysterious, success is the natural consequences of consistently applying basic fundamentals.” Next, you must become a pro at finance – if you want to be successful, this step simply isn’t optional. Lastly, remember that you reap what you sow. Jim was all about the law of the harvest, saying “Success is not to be pursued, it is to be attracted by the person we become.”
