    Hi Joel,

    This is my favorite…
    “Don’t wish it was easier wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenge wish for more wisdom” – Jim Rohn”

    Because we’ve all be faced with situations were the choice is to defeat or be defeated.

    I read your last piece on Jim Rohn and looked at some of his books but felt slightly overwhelmed. If you had to chose one book, what would your recommendation be?

    I wrote about 5 life-changing Jim Rohn quotes in my blog recently. 3 are here. The other 2 which I think should really be here are,

    “Your level of success will seldom exceed your level of personal development.”

    “The ultimate reason for setting goals is to entice you to become the person it takes to achieve them.”

    I like this one from your list. “We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret.”

    Thanks for sharing, great quotes. Jim Rohn has one of the best ones out there.
