A Philosophy For Successful Living

Be Optimistic…

I have been reading My Philosophy for Successful Living by Jim Rohn, it is a compact book so easy to read with just six Chapters.  Jim Rohn was one of Darren Hardy’s Mentors (Success Magazine).  I thought it relevant to post this blog as its Hogmanay today and hopefully most of us will have written down our goals for 2013.

OPTIMISMHere are some points in the book that I found most inspiring:

  • One good idea can transform your whole future
  • You need to be receptive to hear about change
  • We should all engage in the sharing of ideas
  • Formal education gets you a job, but self-education is what makes you rich
  • Find a mentor
  • You are your own product
  • Do what is necessary to improve yourself and your capabilities.  You learn to do more and be more
  • Success is something you attract by being an attractive person
  • Find a way to serve many people.  This leads to great wealth, great power and great influence
  • China has over 235 millionaires and the new billionaires are coming from India
  • Make certain you have more than one skill

The six steps Jim Rohn talks about at the end of the book are:

  1. Be productive
  2. Value relationships
  3. Respect your origins
  4. Spiritual health
  5. Build an inner circle
  6. Plant seeds

I have taken time off in between Christmas and New Year, it is probably the only time of the year that I make an effort to do this.  In this time I have been doing a lot of reading and planning / thinking about 2013 and what it holds for me and the business.  I plan to make the most of every opportunity that presents itself to me, work exceptionally hard and focus on my goals and dreams.  What about you?
