Jim Rohn quotes make you think about how you think.
One of my favorite quotes by Jim Rohn is "Don’t wish it were easier; wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems; wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenges; wish for more wisdom."
How many times have we wished for circumstances to be easier or that we had less problems. Instead we should have wished to be better and for more skills.
This makes a lot of sense. This is how we grow.
Another of my favorite Jim Rohn quotes is "It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go."
Here Jim is telling us that it is our thoughts (the set of the sails), not what happens to us in life (direction of the wind) that determines which way we will go.
Jim Rohn has a very unique way of explaining success secrets in an easy to understand way.

"The few who do are the envy of the many who only watch."
"You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of."
"Better understated than overstated. Let people be surprised that it was more than you promised and easier than you said."
"Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event. You don’t fail overnight. Instead, failure is a few errors in judgement, repeated every day."
"We generally change ourselves for one of two reasons: inspiration or desperation."
"Character isn’t something you were born with and can’t change, like your fingerprints. It’s something you weren’t born with and must take responsibility for forming."
