Jim Rohn(September 17, 1930 – December 5, 2009) was one of the most influential motivational speakers of our time. He also authored many books on self-development, including The Philosophy for Successful Living and Twelve Pillars to name a few.
Here are Jim Rohn’s top ten most inspirational quotes:
You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.
Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.
Either you run the day or the day runs you.
The bigger the ‘why’, the easier the ‘how’.
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
Only by giving are you able to receive more than you already have.
Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.
If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.
Never wish life were easier, wish that you were better.
Thank you Jim Rohn!
