A friend introduced me to Rohn's work through forwarding his newsletter and so I looked on Amazon for some of his work and ordered 3 books. I've read all 3 I ordered, other two were Five Major Pieces to the Life Puzzle and Seasons of Life and I enjoyed 7 Strategies the most of the three.
I also have 2 of his CDs and much of his work is repetitive or reiterated but as he says repetition is the mother of skill. The 7 concepts are easy: Goals, Seek Knowledge, Learn How To Change, Control Your Finances, Master Time, Be Around Winners, and Learn the Art of Living Well. What sets his book apart is his delivery and the way he paints the picture in your mind.
A few of my favorite quotes from the book are, "I can't remember what he said, but I still remember thinking I would give anyting to be like him." and "It is impossible to manage your time effectively without well-defined goals." "Are your current friends helping you grow in the direction of your goals?" "Don't start your day until you've finished it on paper."
His style is like a conversation with the reader. Very easy to read and inspirational without many overt references to religion.
RIP Jim Rohn, I'm sorry I didn't get to see a seminar in person.
Today I finished reading Seven Strategies For Wealth And Happiness and
Found it excellent.
All of the things that Mr Rohn talks about: the power of goals, having a financial plan,
Surrounding yourself with the right people; are very important.
The downside of this book is that it is for the mature individual. If you had handed
Me this book twenty years ago, I would have read it and said I love the writing, but
Would have done not much with this knowledge now stored in my subconscious.
Now, I simply do act on good data.
On occasion it seems a little dated and though I personally am happy to read the references and stories surrounding Jesus, it's possible that some may not.
I went over my notes before writing this review, and overall I wouldn't say that there are deep, detailed strategies here, but for me I like his writing style and that he encourages people to both realise their potential and also give back to the community.
There however are a few paradoxes in this book and the 'get rich' genre. Jim Rohn is one of many self-development writers who suggest spending more time with the 'right people' (some other writers are more blunt and say ditch your negative friends) and yet he promotes a culture of being charitable, where you should already be giving away one third of your after-tax income. I'm not sure how many people do that these days. It's interesting that on the one hand, some self-development writers are saying that you should stop spending money like getting your daily coffee (which adds up to quite a bit per year), while others say to be the guy (or gal) who gives more generous tips and so on.
Some points in the book will be 'very American' for some readers. For example, Jim Rohn writes that sophisticated people insure good service by giving a tip up front. He suggests you tell a waiter: "Here's five dollars. Would you take good care of me and my friend?" As an Australian who's travelled across Europe, I doubt that this is the best way to deal with people on either continent, but I think Americans are culturally quite different when it comes to tipping.
Key principles he mentions in the book: the importance of discipline, the idea of being self-educated, cost v. value, and the importance of planning.
Quotes to leave you with:
"Income rarely exceeds personal development."
"The good life is not an amount, it's an attitude, an act, an idea, a discovery, a search. The good life comes from a lifestyle that is fully developed, regardless of the size of your bank account; a lifestyle that provides you with a constant sense of joy in living; a lifestyle that fuels your desire to become a person a deep value and achievement."
Finally, if you would like to read a better book in this genre, I thoroughly recommend the classic by Napoleon Hill, "Think and Grow Rich", which will probably rarely be surpassed.
