On 5th December 2009, my mentor passed away.
E James Rohn, known to millions simply as Jim Rohn, was a truly incredible human being. Though we never met, Jim’s words of wisdom helped me turn my life around and for well over 20 years, Jim’s work has been a regular part of my life and my business.
There may have been days where I didn’t read, listen to or watch something of Jim Rohn’s – but not many.
I own just about every word Jim has ever published and I believe I have every recording he ever made too. This was easily the best commercial investment I ever made.
Jim Rohn’s impact on me
One day, around 23 years ago, I discovered Jim Rohn’s work and my life changed instantly. I became a completely different person. So much so, that although I was broke at the age of 21 and living in a slum, I was financially secure for life just 7 years later. That’s the life-changing impact Jim Rohn has had on me.
Jim’s work was the spark that ignited something, which even I did not know I had. He showed me, in plain English, with no bullshit, that I could become whatever I wanted to; that my past did not equal my future. You can find out more about Jim and his work here.
Jim’s words helped me more than ‘just’ commercially. In fact, at the lowest points in my life, when my parents passed away, Jim’s advice helped me remain sane and kept me moving forward.
Perhaps the strongest testimony to the impact of Jim Rohn’s work, is that right now, all over the world, there are millions of people who are feeling his loss just like I am. That’s quite an achievement, for a farm boy from Idaho.
