I have a special tutorial for you today… and it’s not directly related to real estate investing or private money but is directly related to your success in business and in life.

Have you heard of Jim Rohn before?

If not, I’m pleased to introduce a man who has made a profound impact on my life (both personally and professionally), a man referred to as America’s Foremost Business Philosopher – Mr. Jim Rohn.

Unfortunately I never met him in person. I always wanted to go to one of his seminars but waited too long as Mr. Rohn passed away December 5th, 2009.

But, his legacy lives on through his books, videos, CDs, and all of his educational training programs.

Below is a video that I found on YouTube where he covers some incredible insights he learned from his mentor, Earl Shoaff.

The video is 7 min long… make sure to listen close from the 3 min mark through the end.

Enjoy these simple yet powerful lessons…

NOTE: original video was taken down from YouTube due to copyright issues… so I found another to take it’s place… well actual 3 others πŸ™‚

This is a series called “How to Have Your Best Year Ever”… great stuff too!

I would love to hear what’s on your mind… leave your thoughts, comments, and questions below.

P.S. – If you enjoyed, check out Jim’s book, “The Five Major Pieces of the Life Puzzle”. It’s an all-time favorite of mine.

    Patrick how do I change my philosophy so I can make a fortune?

  2. Jeffry says:

    Excellent! I have a CD of Jim Rohn speaking in front of an large group. This is the first time I have been able to put a face with a voice. He speaks simply and you say to yourself, that makes perfect sense, now how do I incorporate into my life.

  3. Thanks for sharing, its always great to be reminded of the great lessons that Jim shared with us. I feel grateful to have heard him several times in person as well multiple times on his tapes.

  4. yvonne says:

    Thank you for emailing me this video. I haven’t heard of this gentlemen, but i will definitely search for one of his books the next time I’m in town. I’m just sorry to hear that he has past away.

  5. Michael says:

    The clip was mesmerizing, I wished if it were a little bit longer! I will check out his book for sure. Thanks, Patrick!

  6. Anne says:

    Inspirational…Thanks for sharing.

  7. Hey Ray… it all starts with your thoughts, your mindset. Watch the video again, write down the lessons learned (the exact words he used), and post them on your wall where you’ll see them daily. Take whatever advice he gave you to heart, and take action.

    Jeffrey… I totally agree. He speaks simply and it all makes perfect sense. The hallmark of a wise man. Incorporate this into your life by taking the suggestions I gave Ray above.

    Coach Larry… you’re welcome. I would be grateful too if I had seen him a few times. I bet it was quite he experience.

    Yvonne… glad to hear you’re going to get one of his books. Every sentence is like a seminar. Amazing!

    Michael… check YouTube as well. There are a bunch of videos of him over there teaching different little lessons. And get that book…. you’ll LOVE it!

    Anne… you’re welcome πŸ™‚

  10. michael pollard says:

    This is a blessing. Thank You.

  11. Joe… yep, does make you feel richer just listening. Gotta love some Jim Rohn!

    Lissette… to me, it’s always time to start setting new goals. I look at goal setting as a progressive process. Myself and my girlfriend are going to sit down next week and do some 2011 goal setting together. And we’re gonna kick off the process by watching The Secret on DVD. It’s good stuff.

    Michael… you’re welcome. Great to hear.

  12. Patrick…Talk about perfect timing!

    I just enrolled in his 1 Year Success Plan and in my first week of the program but I can tell you, the tools he has provided for success are there and it’s simply up to me to adhere and implement them to see results.
    I love this quote:
    “success is something you attract by the person you become.”
    β€œThe Five Major Pieces of the Life Puzzle” is on my to read list.
    Thanks for sharing this Patrick!

  13. Toni McCann says:

    Thank you Patrick, I had the pleaure of attending Jim Rohn seminar
    over 25 years ago and was mesmerized taking copious notes.

    How good to know he is on Youtube and one can enjoy him in his
    books. I commend your same fine philosophy in recommending the
    best books and mentors.

  14. Lorna Lewis says:

    I know of Jim Rohn, we use him a lot in Herballife. Very inspirational and thought provoking.
    His statements cause one to think and makes one feel compelled to take action. Awesome. Thank you for the reminder.

  15. marc finnie says:

    Hey Patrick, Marc here. Thanks for the inspiration. If there was a way for the whole world to see this , it would be remarkable. Maybe one day. Everything we need to know has been written and done before us. We just have to stand on the books we read, I truly agree. There is no secret to success, it takes hard work, persistence and learning from your failures. Thank you Patrick for taking the time out to share,

    Lorna… his statements definitely make you think. Every sentence is a seminar in and of itself.

    Marc… you’re welcome. I agree with you… if we could get this out to the entire world, what a difference it could make. I love it… “We just have to stand on the books we read.”
