Have a Magnificent Day!

Success Is Everything by Jim Rohn

I came across this information from Jim Rohn, who was a very inspirational teacher.
He taught seminars and personal development in the early days and pioneered the industry.

I agree that we should strive to be the best we can be and actualize our full, creative potential so this definition of success is insightful and valuable.

Enjoy,

Jim Rohn, Teacher & Philosopher

Someone  once said to me that success isn’t everything and I think I know what they  really meant.
I believe they really meant that money isn’t everything, and I  certainly agree with that.
But I do believe that success IS everything.

First, you need to succeed to survive.  We must take the seasons and learn how to use them with the seed, the soil and the rain of opportunity to learn how to sustain ourselves and our family.  But  then second is to then succeed to flourish in every part of your life.

Good  question to ask mature people: “If you could do better, should you?”  And I think almost everybody would answer the question in the affirmative.  If  you could improve your health, shouldn’t you do that?  If you can learn more,  shouldn’t you do that?  If you could earn more and share more, shouldn’t you do  that?  If you can improve your relationships and spirituality, shouldn’t you do  that?

I think that is what success is really all about.  It is not just a  destination that is set for everybody to try and go for. It is like Zig  Ziglar said, “improving in every area of your life to see if you can’t  say with satisfaction at the end of the day, week, month and year, ‘I have made  excellent progress this year, for myself, for my family, for my business, my  career and my health.'”  I think that kind of success everybody recognizes  is legitimate and something we should all strive for.

Interesting  phrase in the Bible that says strive for perfection—not that we can ever reach  it.  But it is in the striving, to be a little bit better today than yesterday,  in our speech, our language, our health, everything we can possibility think  of.

So  yes, in my opinion, Success Is Everything!

—Jim Rohn
