Mentorship: Quotes By Jim Rohn
Make sure you don’t go to the ocean with a teaspoon. At least take a bucket so the kids won’t laugh at you. If, you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Nothing.
Either you run your day or the day runs you.
If you are not willing to risk doing the unusual you will settle for ordinary. Happiness is not something you postpone for the future. It’s something you design for the present. A formal education will make you a living, self education will make you a fortune. It is how the sail is set, not the direction of the wind that determines which way you will go. The vision takes you places – however your mind has to be fixed. If you don’t like how things are, change it. You are not a tree.
Discipline bridge the gap between goals and accomplishments.
Effective communication is 20% what you know, and 80% how you feel about what you know. The major value in life is not what you get it’s who you become. We must all endure one of two things; pain of discipline or pain of disappointment. Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else’s hands, but not you.
You must take personal responsibility over the circumstances, the seasons, the wind, change depends on you. Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day. For every disciplined effort there are multiple rewards.
Time is more valuable than money.
You can get more money, but you cannot get more time. Whatever good things we build end up building us. The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy. You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight. Learning is the beginning of wealth. Learning is the beginning of health. Learning is the beginning of spiritually. Searching and learning is where the miracle process all begins.
Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better.
The more you know the less you need to say. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals. Take advantage of every opportunity to practice your communication skills so that when important occasions arise you will have the gift, the style, the sharpness, the clarity and the emotions to affect other people.
Without a sense of urgency, desire loses it value.
Whoever renders service to many puts himself in line for greatness, great wealth, great returns, great satisfaction, great reputation, and great joy.
Affirmation without discipline is the beginning of delusion.
The major reason for setting a goal is for what it makes of you to accomplish it. What it makes of you will always be the far greater value than what you get. You don’t fail overnight. Instead, failure is a few errors in judgement, repeated every day. It doesn’t matter which side of the fence you get off on sometimes. What matters most is getting off. You cannot make progress without making decisions.
Maturity is the ability to reap without apology and not to complain when things don’t go well.
The difficulties you meet will resolve themselves as you advance. Proceed and light will dawn, and shine with increasing clearness on your path. If, someone is going down the wrong road, he doesn’t need motivation to speed him up. What he needs is education to turn him around.
Work harder on yourself than you do on your job.
If you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you. If, you go to work on your plan, your plan will go to work on you. The worst thing one can do is not to try, to spend years in silent hurt wondering if something could have materialized – never knowing.
Words do two major things. They provide food for the mind and create light for understanding and awareness. Labour gives birth to ideas. Pressure gives birth to new plans. Make measurable progress in reasonable time.
Some people plant in the spring and leave in the summer. If you’ve signed up for a season, see it through. You don’t have to stay forever, but at least stay until you see it through.
Don’t bring your needs to the marketplace, bring your skills. If you don’t feel well, tell your doctor but not the marketplace. If you need money, go to the bank, but not the marketplace. Success is doing the ordinary things extraordinary well.
Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.
