This book is from Jim Rohn, the mentor of Tony Robbins, Les Brown and many others. I would call him the original. I love the clarity of his words and his style of writing. His stories are easy to get into and hard to get out and put the book aside. Sadly Jim died in 2009. After reading his book, I would love to ask him so many questions. It is a bit American, but his ideas can work anywhere in the world. He stirs things up in a positive way like nobody else I know can. It is a good book to read and has a prominent space on my shelf.
From the book:
Jim was one of the most powerful and memorable listening experiences ever because he could take timeless, ageless principles and present them in such a simple way.
Tony Robbins, who first met Jim Rohn when he was 19-years old, said Jim, “had a positive impact on me at a time in my life when I was first forming the philosophies that guide me today.”
That positive impact continues today with this special edition of Jim’s My Philosophy for Successful Living. It’s Jim at his best and includes teaching like:
* The American Economic Ladder and Girl Scout Cookies
* The Philosophy of Performance and Productivity
* Measuring Success in Your Financial House
* Six Steps for Leading an Extraordinary Life
* And lots more!
“I truly believe Jim Rohn is an extraordinary human being whose philosophy can enhance the quality of life for anyone.”
