    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.

Humble people can have great talent, yet they’re extremely self-aware of their talents, and keep everything in perspective.

When you’re humble, the results speak for themselves. When you’re humble, you’re not afraid to ask for help, praise others, and even accept compliments. If you’re truly humble, people will notice and gravitate towards you.

Below are 33 quotes to remind you of the incredible power of humility:

    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.
