Sad News - Legendary Success Speaker Jim Rohn Has Died

With great sadness we share that Jim Rohn, our mentor and friend, left us December 5, 2009 for a better place.

Over the past 18 months, in his battle with Pulmonary Fibrosis, Jim assured us with a smile that all is good, that he would fight until the last breath, yet he had no fear as to what would be next. Jim’s faith was as much a part of his life as his desire to inspire and challenge us all to be the best we could be and to live our dreams.

Jim’s courage in his final months and days were a testament to his message that we should all fight the good fight. He never gave up and never gave in.

For the rest of the story, see "The Passing of a Legend" on the official Jim Rohn website

Some memorable Jim Rohn quotes...

GENEROSITY - "Somebody says, 'Well, I can't be concerned about other people. About the best I can do is to take care of myself.' Well, then you will always be poor."

SELF-DEVELOPMENT - "We generally change ourselves for one of two reasons: inspiration or desperation."

PASSION - When you know what you want, and you want it bad enough, you will find a way to get it.
INTEGRITY - "For every promise, there is a price to pay."

RESPONSIBILITY - "Walk away from the 97% crowd. Don't use their excuses. Take charge of your own life"

VISION - "Don't set your goals too low. If you don't need much, you won't become much."
And there are hundreds more...
