      Totally agree John. He influenced a lot of people. Truly the business philosopher and a total gentleman. He will be sorely missed.

      RIP Jim Rohn.

      I asked my first millionaire mentor back in 1999 who had
      influenced him the most. His unequivocal answer: Jim Rohn.

      I then got his entire book and audio library and have been
      a student of Jim Rohn ever since.

      Here are some of his quotes that really impacted my life and
      refined my own personal philosophy:

      "Success is a few simple disciplines, practiced every day"

      "Failure is a few errors in judgement, repeated every day"

      "Success is something you attract by the person you become"

      "You can't change destination overnight but you can change
      direction overnight"

      "Make measurable progress in reasonable time"

      "Profits are better than wages"

      "Wages make you a living. Profits make you a fortune"

      "Work harder on yourself than you do on your job"

      "For things to get better, you have to get better"

      "Your personal philosophy is the greatest factor in your
      success"

      "Don't wish it were easier. Wish you were better"

      "Don't neglect the things that are easy to do"

      "Beware of what you become in the pursuit of your goals"

      "If you wish to be happy, study happiness"

      "Life doesn't give you what you want. It gives you what
      you deserve"

      "Don't mistake movement for achievement"

      "Everything is within reach"


      Jim Rohn's wish for his life was that "He made a major
      contribution to the lives of millions." He certainly did
      that for me and millions of others.

      Thank you for impacting my life and Rest in Peace Jim
      Rohn.

    We have truly lost a legend today.

    Here is a link to Jim's tribute site http://tribute.jimrohn.com/ there is a wonderful tribute video at the bottom of that page.

    Here is the email sent out by his company.

    The Passing of a Legend

    With great sadness we share that Jim Rohn, our mentor and friend, left us December 5, 2009 for a better place.

    Over the past 18 months, in his battle with Pulmonary Fibrosis, Jim assured us with a smile that all is good, that he would fight until the last breath, yet he had no fear as to what would be next. Jim's faith was as much a part of his life as his desire to inspire and challenge us all to be the best we could be and to live our dreams.

    Jim's courage in his final months and days were a testament to his message that we should all fight the good fight. He never gave up and never gave in.

    Jim Rohn touched millions of lives over the past 46 years through his seminars, books, articles and CDs. He always stayed long after an event t o shake hands, take pictures and sign autographs. He loved making a difference in people's lives, that was his passion and inspiration. Yet he was also a private man who kept a small, loyal and caring inner circle. He was a tremendous friend to those who knew him.

    Harold Dyke, long time close friend of Jim's for over 55 years said it best, "As Jim is ending one life he is simultaneously being birthed into a new life. One that he has talked about over the years and anticipated with great joy in his last remaining days."

    Kyle Wilson, long time colleague and friend of Jim had this to say about his mentor, "Jim Rohn was a great human being. Jim had the rare ability to take any concept or idea and then frame it in such a way that the rest of us could see it more clearly. His wisdom and insights positively affected everyone he touched on some level and to so many of us it was in an extraordinary way. But even more impressive was Jim Rohn the man. He possessed style and charisma, yet was humble, kind and understated to all who knew him. I find myself every day reflecting, benefiting and passing on the wisdom and ideas that are rooted in Jim's message and wisdom. Jim is irreplaceable on every level. I will miss him beyond words, but am comforted as I know he was, that his message and legacy will live on and positively change millions of lives over the years to come!"

    Someone once said "when you are born you enter the world crying while everyone else is rejoicing and when you die hopefully you have lived such a life that everyone will be crying while you are rejoicing". Jim Rohn lived such a life.

    Jim's family asked us to thank all of you for your concern, prayers and love toward their father and grandfather, which has been so evident during the past 18 months.

    Darren Hardy, dedicated student and Jim Rohn protégé for more than 15 years, said of Jim, "He was the most influential man in my life, second only to my father. Jim cemented my philosophical foundation and nourished my mind with ideas and ambitions never before imagined. He chiseled my character seminar by seminar, tape by tape, book by book, then CD by CD, hour by hour. Jim emboldened my belief, in me and in my most daring dreams. When I fell and was bloodied, he was there with encouraging words to help me get back up. When I didn't think I could go on, Jim convinced me I was stronger than I imagined. When I wanted a shortcut, he reminded me there aren't any. Even when I got too caught up in trying to achieve and succeed, Jim compelled me to leave room to live, to laugh and to love."

    Stuart Johnson, business associate and long-time admirer, said, "I was first introduced to the philosophies and teachings of Jim Rohn almost 25 years ago. And he made an immediate impression on me. I was amazed by how this modest and unassuming man could communicate such an extraordinarily powerful message in simple and straightforward terms. In person, one-on-one, he was as humble and down-to-earth as he was in front of an audience of thousands. I will treasure my personal memories of Jim and know that I will forever benefit from the wisdom of this remarkable man."

    There will be a private funeral held in the coming days. Plans and details are also being arranged for a Public Memorial Service to be held in the Los Angeles area in the coming weeks. Details will be announced upon final confirmation at the Jim Rohn Tribute Site.

    We know Mr. Rohn is looking down on us at this very moment with a smile saying I did it, I gave it my all, I went for it, now it's your turn. Go for it. Make your life a life worth living well!

    View a special tribute to Jim at the Jim Rohn Tribute Site produced earlier this year and debuted at the March 2009 SUCCESS Symposium. You are also encouraged to post your thoughts and remembrances of Jim on the Memorial Wall.

    Jim fondly closed his programs with the following sentiments: "I go with you in all the experience that we've had. But I promise you this as we leave here: I will not leave you behind. I'll take you with me in my thoughts and in my heart."

            OK, well, a lot of his valuable material can obviously be found with a quick search and is accessible for free.

            This particular course (non-aff) is one I find especially valuable, although all courses are subjective and I suspect the vast majority of material from the Rohn camp will have a positive effect on your life and business.

        Tim, I've never seen or heard anything with Jim's name on it that wasn't top-shelf.

        My personal favorites of Jim's work would be his audio collections "The Art of Exceptional Living" and "Take Charge of Your Life: The Winner's Seminar". His books "The Treasury of Quotes" and "Twelve Pillars" are also favorites of mine.

        I will really miss Jim... his teachings and advise have been a major help to me, especially when I've hit rough bumps in the road called life.

        R.I.P. Jim Rohn.

    I worked on stage at a major event with Jim in Singapore a couple of years ago. I remember walking backstage to the speakers room and I introduced myself by saying "Hello Mr Rohn, my name's David Cavanagh". He replied with "Just call me Jim please son".

    We spoke about his life, his teachings, his association with Herbalife (which he called 'erbalife), his relationship with Tony Robbins and more, and this was while he was writing down a stack of notes before he went on stage

    I said "Jim, why are you writing so many notes?" His comment to me was "I've got my presentation to do, and you always need to be well prepared young man".

    He was an amazing man who will be loved and missed by all who knew him, and those who will get to know him through his brilliant work in the near and distant future.

    God Bless You Mr Rohn!

    Sorry to hear of Jim passing away. I have read/listened to so much of his work and he talks more common sense than anyone else I have ever heard. A few years back I bought three copies of a little book containing snippets of Jim's wisdom. I put them away to give to my children when they were 18. I wanted him to inspire them they way he inspired me. It will be another three and a bit years yet before the first one is given out. Jim may no longer be here but he will be with us for a long time to come.
    Thing is I now have four children so I really need to get another copy of that little book!
    I hope Jim's family will be able to take comfort from knowing how valuable his words will continue to be.
