I have to open this post with a bit of an explanation. When I was in my early twenties and beginning my career as a real estate agent, I could not get enough of the personal development movement, all of these talented speakers spoke directly to my timid heart; they taught me how to shape my perspective, the power of my own mind, how to cultivate self-confidence and in the cut-throat world of  sales, how to grow some b*lls. Here is one of my absolute favourites:

What Jim Rohn Believes:

  •  You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.
  • The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
  • Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.
  • 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.
  • Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day.
  • Learn how to be happy with what you have while you pursue all that you want.
  • Miss a meal if you have to, but don’t miss a book.
  • Excuses are the nails used to build a house of failure.

Jim Rohn was the first person that said, “if you invest in your job you will make a living but if you invest in yourself, you will make a fortune.” My mind was blown and then completely changed. My fortune has manifested in many different ways throughout my life, but because of this man’s work I never wake up feeling anything less than abundant and blessed. And my hope is that you do too.
