In this video Jim Rohn talks about changing your life through personal development. A lot of people finds it easier to blame others for the defects and struggles in their life than taking responsibility to change their lives. if you want to achieve financial freedom or freedom of any sort the first and foremost thing to do is to give up that habit of blaming others and take charge of your life.
In this video, Jim Rohn said one of the lessons he learned from his mentor that helped was when he told him “it’s not what happens that determine the major part of our future because what happened, happens to us all. The key is what you do about what happened to you”.
If you can not change the circumstances, then change what you have been doing before now. If you have a poor health, you can not just give up and carry on living and eating as before and expect a change. somebody said this is the definition of insanity. To have an improved and better health you have to do something different from what you have always done. I think this is very powerful.
A lot of people gets stuck at what happened to them and therefore, fails to make the transition from what happened, to where they wish to be. I agree that transition can be very challenging task sometimes.
Another lesson Jim Rohn taught is that, “what you have at the moment, you have attracted by the person you have become. To change this, you have to change what is inside you and not the external factors. if you want more, you have to become more. dont wish it was easier, wish you were better.
Another lesson Jim Rohn taught is that “you get paid for bringing value to the marketplace”. Is it therefore, possible to become 3 times valuable now and get paid 3 times more than what you are earning presently?. Off course, it’s possible. Become more valuable by working on yourself than on your Job. If you work hard on your job, you will earn a living but if you work on yourself, you will earn a fortune. You don’t have to change anything or anyone around you. You only have to change your personality, your attitude, philosophy to life, your communication skills, your language and everything around you will change.
SO! Start today to take steps to change your life by becoming more valuable through engaging in your own personal development.
