There are very few people who positively impact your life when you have never met that person.

Jim Rohn is one of those people that have impacted my life and even changed my life philosophy through his writings and recorded seminars.

Although Jim passed away in 2009, his quotes and timeless wisdom are just as true today as they were many years ago.

Here are 5 Jim Rohn quotes that impacted me and caused me to change behaviors to become a successful person.

For things to change, you have to change Jim Rohn

We all seem to want everyone else to change, but we don’t think we need to change. Change starts with You. Be the change that you want to see in the world, and then sit back and see how your world changes for the best.

It’s easy to sit back and wish and hope for things to change without ever making an effort. That’s not reality. Be an agent for the change you want to see in the world.

Don’t let your learning lead to knowledge. Let your learning lead to action.” Jim Rohn

All leaders are readers. But it does you no good to read and accumulate all that knowledge and let it marinate in your head.

Knowledge without action is useless. Always put into action some key learning principles that you have learned from reading a book.

I know people and have been guilty of this myself, I will read a book, take notes, highlight important passages, but never put those learnings into action.

We will never grow and improve if we don’t take action on the ideas we are exposed to.

When you know what you want, and you want it bad enough, you will find a way to get it.” Jim Rohn

This is one of my favorite quotes. We all complain that we don’t have enough time or just can’t fit exercise or journaling into our busy schedule.

You can’t fit it into your schedule because it’s not that important to you. We all make time in our schedule for our MVP’s, Most Valuable Priorities.
