As many of you may know I am a big fan of Jim Rohn. He passed away in December of 2009. He was recognized as an American entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker.
Are you standing before kings?
Over the years I have gone to seminars and listened to hundreds of motivational speakers. I have always come away with something of value that I could apply in my personal or business life. However, Jim Rohn was in a league all by himself. He was truly one of a kind. Why? He made things really simple and easy to apply.
I had the opportunity to meet him twice. I will never forget one thing Jim Rohn said, “The books that you don’t read can’t help you.” That really rocked my world. Up until that point in my life I had read very few books. Why? I didn’t like to read. Well, everything changed that day and it was the beginning my life-long commitment for personal development.
In my favorite book it reads, “Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before unknown men.”
