Changing your life for the better is easier than you think.
on June 4, 2002
You can read all the books you want on motivation, goal setting, wealth building, etc., but unless the words sink in, unless you fully understand their meaning and are motivated to act on them, they will be valueless. That's one reason why it is important to read many different authors. Though they may say the same things, the words of one will resonate within you, while the other's are soon forgotten.
That is how it is with Jim Rohn for me. My first encounter with his material was through his tape "The Art of Exceptional Living." A powerful tape, it literally opened my eyes to some startlingly simple concepts that have the power to transform your life. And they have. I use his words when talking about sharing with my children. Not only do they instantly have a better understanding of what it means to share, but they act on it immediately! His words have now changed their lives too.
His tape affected me so much that I had to find more of his work, which led me to this book. I was not disappointed. Though there is some overlap between this book and his tape, it is well worth going over the material again. His ideas and suggestions, so powerful yet so simple, are helping to propel me to achieve all that I want.
This is an excellent book, well worth the money. Clearly written, easy to read, with examples and exercises to help drive home his points. Sure, Jim Rohn may not have the same affect on you that he did on me. But you won't go wrong reading this book.
