Jim Rohn was an American businessman, a self-made millionaire before he turned 31, author, motivational speaker and even Anthony Robbins's mentor. The author of dozens of books, Rohn was also a big believer in the power of self-discipline to achieve one's ambitions at home and in business.

One of the greatest rags-to-riches stories is that of Jim Rohn. Jim spent his entire adult life giving back to humanity by teaching and lecturing about how to gain success in selling. He tried to teach people that they could be whatever they chose to be. Jim was an only child who grew up on a little farm in southwest Idaho, U.S.A., to become what many consider to be America's foremost business philosopher.

Some great quotes from Jim Rohn:

1. “Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenges, wish for more wisdom.”

2. “How sad to see a father with money and no joy. The man studied economics, but never studied happiness.”

3. “Days are expensive. When you spend a day you have one less day to spend. So make sure you spend each one wisely.”

4. “Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.”

5. “Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event. You don’t fail overnight. Instead, failure is a few errors in judgment, repeated every day.”

6. “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.”

7. “The worst thing one can do is not to try, to be aware of what one wants and not give in to it, to spend years in silent hurt wondering if something could have materialized - never knowing.”

8. “Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” 

9. “You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.” 

10. “Learn how to be happy with what you have while you pursue all that you want.”

11. “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”

12. “Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live.” 

13. “The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy.” 

14. “Asking is the beginning of receiving. I ask for all kinds of things. Make sure you don't go to the ocean with a teaspoon. At least take a bucket so the kids won't laugh at you.” 

15. “Get around people who have something of value to share with you. Their impact will continue to have a significant effect on your life long after they have departed.” 

16. “Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.”

17. “Make rest a necessity, not an objective. Only rest long enough to gather strength.”

18. “Effective communication is 20% what you know and 80% how you feel about what you know.”

19. “No one else 'makes us angry.' We make ourselves angry when we surrender control of our attitude.”

20. “You must either modify your dreams or magnify your skills.”
