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
