We are all familiar with Anthony Robbins who is a common household name where the subjects of Success and Motivation are concerned. Anthony Robbins started his career, promoting seminars for his mentor and well-known public figure, Jim Rohn. According to Anthony, Jim Rohn taught him thathappiness and success in life are not the result of what we have, but rather of how we live and what we do with the things we have makes the biggest difference in the quality of life”.

Read on to learn a thing or two about the master of Motivational Speaking.

Jim was born and raised on a small farm in Idaho and grew up as an only child. Once graduated from school he went on to college, completing a year before he dropped out to join the work force. Jim struggled financially as he worked for $57 a week at the age of 25 as a stock clerk for Sears and saw no way out of his financial difficulties.

Jim was invited to attend a lecture being given by Entrepreneur, John Earl Shoaff. John spoke of business, wealth, accomplishments, charisma and life philosophy’s which inspired Jim, giving him a new sense of hope and drive that he could do more with his life. John was VP of sales at a Nutritional company; Abunda Vita.

They say that when you want something that bad, you surround yourself with people you inspire to be like, mimic their ways and learn as much as you can from them and how they got to where they are today. This is exactly what Jim Rohn did when he made a decision to leave his clerk position with Sears to join Abunda Vita where Jim began his process of personal development that culminated in his becoming a millionaire by the age of 31.

Jim was invited to share his story with others at his local rotary club which he kindly accepted, naming his talk “Idaho Farm Boy Makes It To Beverly Hills”. So many people enjoyed his story that he was then asked to speak at various luncheons and other local events. This soon lead to his first public seminar at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 1963 which was the beginning of Jim Rohn presenting Seminars all over the country telling his story and teaching others the personal development philosophy he believed led to his accomplishments.

Jim Rohn presented seminars for more than 40 years and has been credited for his influence by other well-known motivational speakers and authors such as; Tony Robbins, Mark Victor Hansen, Jack Canfield and Brian Tracy.

One of Jim’s 17 published books was named ‘Five Major Pieces to the Life’ and was built around what he considered to be the five key components of success:

–          Philosophy – how you think

–          Attitude – How you feel

–          Action – What you do

–          Results – Measure often to see if you are making progress

–          Lifestyle – the kind of life you can make for yourself out of the first four pieces

How Your Friends Determine Whether You Succeed or Not

Can anyone do without having friends? We all have our friends, we share ideas with them, talk together, have fun, and fight. Yes, that’s the baseline of friendship. But, do you know that aside from you, your friends can determine whether you achieve success or not?

There are two things in friendship which are the ability to ”love” and the ability to “influence”. This means you are loved and you are influenced. How do your friends affect your success in life? How are they one of the biggest deciding factors of your success? Let’s find out.

What type of friends do you keep? 

First, what type of friends do you keep? Who do you call your best friend? There are two different kinds of friends, good friends, and bad ones. A lot of people have lost their pathway to success and some have also found their road to success all because of the friends they keep, the people they mingle with. 

Who is your best friend? Answer carefully. Having a best friend means you find each other compatible and understanding. Analyze who your best friend is. If your best friend has not motivated you to do something positive, if who you call your bestie has never given you positive advice, lastly if your best friend has never informed and advised you on your shortcomings, then you don’t have a best friend.

This quote tells us “birds of the same feather flock together”. Countless people have changed from their good nature into a bad one all because of friends. One thing to note is, “negative people move with negative aura”. If your best friend is filled with negativity inside-out then you will surely be affected by his/her negative aura.

They influence your success with positivity or negativity 

The friends you keep can either influence you with positivity or negativity because your friends have the power to change your kind of person completely. 

This is how your friends influence you:

  1. They influence you indirectly with what they do
  2. They influence you directly by teaching and giving you advice 

Yes, that is how they influence you. For instance, you watch a movie and you like the way the actor walks. The question is if you truly like the way the actor walks, won’t you try to imitate the actor? Of course, you will.

Just the way you imitate the actor is the same way your friends can influence you with their character. However, the funny part is, they don’t have to teach you to do things like them. You just find yourself imitating and copying them gradually.

An important question to ask is, are you imitating a good friend or a bad one? If you imitate a good friend then you will be good, but if you imitate a bad person, you will surely become a bad person.

Everyone wants to succeed, a good friend will always teach, enlighten, and motivate you for success. A bad friend will only motivate you to do evil things (smoking, drinking, fight, envy,).

And you should know that things like that are a great enemy of success and even of God. So, if you have these bad elements in your life, how will you achieve success? There is no way!

And also, they can teach and advise you directly. But, what do your friends teach you? When you ask them for advice do they inspire you positively or teach you the bad stuff.? A lot of people have regretted lifelong decisions just by listening to the advice of friends. 

The company you keep has the power to influence and change you. Never forget that a positive influence will teach, motivate, and brush you up for success. While a negative influence will inspire you to become a bad person, change your good nature, and leave you with regrets in the end.
