Honoring Jim Rohn

Posted by Jan Knutson on December 9, 2009

We have sadly seen the passing of a great leader in personal development, Jim Rohn.

As Tony Robbins’ first mentor, he was an inspirational philosopher whose insights has helped many to grasp the ideals that enable them to see more clearly their vision, have more heart in their motivation, and lighten their mental load by living and learning from the moment.

This is an article by Jim Rohn, which illustrates some of his message:

“One of the major reasons why we fail to find happiness or to a create unique lifestyle is because we have not yet mastered the art of being.

While we are home our thoughts are still absorbed with solving the challenges we face at the office. And when we are at the office we find ourselves worrying about problems at home.

We go through the day without really listening to what others are saying to us. We may be hearing the words, but we aren’t absorbing the message.

As we go through the day we find ourselves focusing on past experiences or future possibilities. We are so involved in yesterday and tomorrow that we never even notice that today is slipping by.

We go through the day rather than getting something from the day. We are everywhere at any given moment in time except living in that moment in time.

Lifestyle is learning to be wherever you are. It is developing a unique focus on the current moment, and drawing from it all of the substance and wealth of experience and emotions that it has to offer. Lifestyle is taking time to watch a sunset. Lifestyle is listening to silence. Lifestyle is capturing each moment so that it becomes a new part of what we are and of what we are in the process of becoming. Lifestyle is not something we do; it is something we experience. And until we learn to be there, we will never master the art of living well. ”

We have at least the written word and video as well to keep Jim alive and in our hearts and minds. Enjoy this video and find more where this came from!

Remember to take the best and leave the rest, learn by listening and live every day to the fullest!
