Jim Rohn – Psychology of Wealth Thinking (Jim Rohn Pesonal Development)

here’s the big challenge of life you can
have more than you’ve got because you can become more than you are that’s the challenge and of course the
other side of the coin reads unless you change how you are you always have what
you got i have found in my experience that income does not far exceed personal
development now sometimes income takes a lucky jump but sure enough unless you
grow out where it is it will usually come back where you are life has strange ways if somebody hands
you a million dollars best you become a millionaire quickly so you get to keep
the money otherwise sure enough it will disappear somebody once said if you took all the
money in the world divided up equally among everybody it would soon I’ll be
back in the same pockets incredible success is something you attract not
something you pursue success is looking for a good place to stay so instead of
going after it you work on yourself personal development see the major
question to ask on the job is not what are you getting the major question to
ask on the job is what are you becoming the big question is not what am I
getting paid here the big question is what might be coming
here because true happiness is not contained
in what you get happiness is contained in what you
become so that’s our major subject for tonight personal development of all the
assignments mr chef gave me at age 25 this was probably the most difficult in
fact i’m still working on this one I think it’s an unending challenge to see
what you can become the next subject is called basic laws and it’s good to study
the basics and I call these basics primarily because they come from the
Bible now i’m not a theologian or administer
and that’ll be a parent but Mr shelf taught me that the Bible was a good
textbook for ideas and stories and success equations how to live a better
life i found out that was true he also taught me that the Bible is as practical
as it is spiritual and i found out that’s true if you look at your bank
account in your income and you’re not happy there are several places in the
Bible to check to see what the heck’s wrong so you can make the changes and
we’re going to cover some of those tonight called basics ok the next subject is my favorite
setting goals shelf taught me how to set goals what a
favor that was one morning at breakfast shortly after I met him he said Jim let
me see your current list of goals let’s go over and talk about he said maybe
that’s the best way I can help you get a better direction started and i said i
don’t have a list he said well is it out in the car or
home somewhere i said no sir I don’t have a list anywhere he said well young
man that’s where we got to start he said I can tell you right now if you don’t
have a list of your goals with you he said I can guess your bank balance
within a few hundred dollars which he did and that got my attention I said you
mean my bank balance would change if I had a list of goals he said drastically
that day I became a willing student how to set goals and sure enough learning
how to set goals change my life and I often wondered why no one had ever
taught me how to set goals up until age 25 I went to high school but if they
offered it i missed it i went to college for a year never heard it I work for sears really
and to my knowledge sears never taught it right how to set goals so here I am h25
married my family starting I’ve been to college i’m working and I still don’t
know how to set goals but fortunately when I was 25 I met the man who taught
me how and it revolutionized my whole life
economically socially personally it’s incredible so i want to share with you tonight what
mr. shared with me how to set goals it can be a life changer ok the next subject is the negative part
of the seminar life is part negative so we got to talk about the negative and
this subject is called diseases of attitude diseases of attitude there’s a lot of things that can wreck
your chances to do well we live in a rather dangerous world so you got to be
not only wise you got to be careful now attitude diseases are just as bad as
physical diseases right high blood pressure heart trouble I mean a lot of
things lace your chances to do well so you’ve got to be careful and attitude
diseases are deadly I mean they’ll destroy all the good
things you start okay so we’ll go through those attitude diseases how to
spot them how to look for them what they are and and the cure and i’m a pro on
these because i’ve had them all so i can give you excellent advice on these now
the last subject we’re going to consider tonight is called the day that turned
your life around the day that turns your life around and under the subject we’re going to
talk about the emotions that can change your life human beings are emotional creatures and
emotions are powerful for life change now of course the emotions are so
powerful they can go either way on you emotions can either build or destroy so
you really have to employ emotions properly we call civilization the
intelligent management of human emotions if you can intelligently apply your
emotions in the right direction no telling what can happen could turn your
life around one day would be sufficient so we’ll talk about those okay now
that’s a lot to cover in one evening but we’ll keep out of here and see if we
can’t get it all done I’d like to have you now jot down the
theme of the seminar every single should have a theme I guess we’ve got one it’s
on some of our literature you happen to notice it but if you didn’t for your
notes here it is the theme of the seminar goes like this the major key to your better future is you that’s the theme of our seminar tonight
the major key to your better futures you and I’d like to have the underlying two
words just to give it some added punch underline the word major and the word
you so that it reads the major key to your better future is you now my first
suggestion is transfer this to a card or something where you can put it up where
you can see it every day preferably put it up for you can see it at the
beginning of the day before you got to put the day together this is a good phrase just a glance at
to keep in mind as you’re putting the day together it’s called the silent seminar if you’ll
just let this talk to you during the day I found it to be tremendously helpful
the major key to your better future is you for a big share of my life now I didn’t
have this one quite figured out among a lot of things I didn’t have quite
figured out many things used to present me back in those early days I used to
wonder why two people could work for the same company one make twice as much
money now see that used to puzzle me and maybe they were the same age graduated
from the same school live in the same community work for the same company with
the same products in the same services they’ve got the same traffic the same
problems and one makes a thousand a month the other makes 2000 month now
that was my puzzling question why would this long list be the same and the money
prices much i asked what’s the difference between a thousand moments in
2000 month and i don’t mean a thousand month right I could figure that out but
what makes the difference why would one person do twice as well three times as
well speaking economically now I know there’s more than one way to do well I
understand that but in this little narrow area called compensation what’s the difference well back then
with my faulty thinking I’m trying to reason it out i thought well maybe time
make some of the difference right some people do better because they have more
time i used to say Harold got to be able to do well he’s got a lot of time if I
had all of Harold’s time I could do well now that’s got to be done right number
one you can’t get somebody else’s time and I system 1 times he says you know if
I had some extra time I could make some extra money I said then forget it there isn’t any extra time hey when the
clock strikes 12 midnight that about wraps it up right i mean you can look
around the gongs if a little more but it’s over you say the guy what you’re
doing is looking for extra time see they’ll come and take you away right
there isn’t any more time now if you can’t get more time which you can’t what
could you get more of that would make a difference in economic results and
here’s the key word make it a part of your notes we’re going to consider
tonight the word is value and I have a little
phrase for your notes value makes the difference in results value makes the
difference you can’t get more time but you can
create more value now here’s the first lesson of economics
everybody should learn it from the time they’re old enough to understand what a
dollar means how to earn one how to get one how to keep one what to do with it first lesson of economics we primarily
get paid for value that’s less than one bringing value to the marketplace that’s
how you get paid you don’t get paid for the time I know it takes time to bring
value to the marketplace but you get paid for the value not the time now
since that’s true here’s one of the key questions of the evening is it possible
to become twice as valuable at the marketplace and make twice as much money
in the same time could you become three times as valuable make three times as
much money in the same time is that possible the answer is yes if and it’s always a
fright life is known as the big if Harry Truman once said life is iffy how
true and here’s the big if we’re going to consider tonight it’s possible to do
much better at the marketplace if you go to work primarily on yourself and that’s
the theme of our seminar tonight learning to work primarily on yourself people have asked me for the last 24
years how do you develop an above average
income and the answer is become an above average person develop and above every
ten shape some people want to be successful they
don’t even work on their handshake as easy as that would be to start on they
let it slide they don’t understand develop an
above-average smile develop an above-average excitement development
above average interest in other people develop an above average intensity to
win see that will change everything probably one of the most frustrating
experiences in life is looking for an above-average job with above average pay
without becoming an above average person it’s called frustration and mr. chef gave me probably the
greatest clue he gave me when I first met him he said Jim if you want to be
wealthy and happy the rest of your life just learned this lesson well he said
learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job then mr. chef gave me probably one of
the most important clues among so many things he taught me but this was in
those early days mr. shelf is very kind but he was also very abrupt and he had
these interesting questions to ask I’m giving him a little run day run down
one day of how things had worked out for me he said Mr and I’ve got the answer
for you if you will listen carefully and listen carefully I did that day and for
the next five years if somebody’s wealthy and happy you got a list he said Jim I’ve only known you a short
time but he said it’s already my honest opinion that for things to change for
you you’ve got to change that wasn’t quite the answer I was looking for but
that’s the answer he gave me and I pass it along to you on this warm summer
evening in anaheim california 1981 for things to change for you you’ve got to
change otherwise it isn’t going to change before I met mr. show I used to say I
sure hope things will change right that seemed to be my only hope if it
isn’t gonna change I’m in serious trouble and then I discovered it isn’t
gonna change so I’m serious trouble see I can tell you what the eighties are
going to be like you have dropped into the right place i did a seminar one time for standard
oil executives and management in honolulu and we’re having a conference
when they’re on to speak conference table and what I’m said to mr. own you
know some fairly important people halfway around the world what do you think these are gonna be
like I said gentlemen I do know the right people i can tell you so they all
listened very carefully a nice gentleman based on my wide experience I can really
honestly say to you in my opinion in the eighties it’s going to be about like
it’s always been aren’t you glad you came that’s inside I
don’t pass that around just everywhere now of course I said that to make a
point but I also said it because it’s accurate it’s going to be about like it’s always
been it isn’t going to change the tide comes in and then what it goes out for
six and a half thousand years that we know of recorded history and probably
long before that so it is not going to change it gets light and then what it
turns dark six and a half thousand years see it’s not likely to change and we’re not to be startled by that if
the Sun Goes Down the guys what’s happened what’s happened it means he hasn’t been here long i
guess right it always goes down about this time the guy says well I don’t like
that arrangement we got to talk to somebody besides me write it gets like
that it turns dark in rotation the next season after fall is what winter pray
tell how often does winter follow fall every-year regularly for the last six
and a half thousand we don’t see it is not going to change now some winters are
long and some are short and some hard and some are easy but they always come
right after falls it isn’t gonna change sometimes you can figure it out
sometimes there’s no way to figure it out sometimes it goes well sometimes it gets
in a knot sometimes its sales along sometimes it
gets in Reverse see that’s not going to change the last 6,000 years reads like
this opportunity mixed with difficulty that’s how it reads it isn’t going to
change the man says well if it isn’t going to change how will my life ever
change answer when you change and whether i’m talking to highschool kids
or business executives my message is always the same and it goes like this
the only way it gets better for you is when you get better let me give you the four major lessons
in life to learn here’s four majors going to study the majors in our weekend seminar we teach some
people don’t do well because they major and minor things you’ve got to be on the lookout at the
end of every weekend of every month you got to check make sure you’re not
spending major time on minor things we go through that whole series majors and
minors now let me give you two phrases before
we get to the four majors this will set it up and you’ll see where I’m going to
key phrases for your notes here’s the first word life and business
is like the changing seasons that’s the first phrase life and
business is like the changing seasons one of the best ways to describe life
it’s like the seasons Frank Sinatra seems life is like the seasons now
here’s the second phrase very important you cannot change the seasons but you
can change yourself you can’t change the seasons but you can change yourself and see that’s how life gets better for
you not by chance but by change now here’s the four major lessons in
life to learn I’ve got my first book finished came out
a couple of weeks ago this isn’t it the four major lessons in life to learn here
they are number one learn how to handle the winters that’s less than one they
come right after falls with regularity summer long and some are short and some
hard and some are easy but they keep coming you must learn to handle the nights they
come right after days you must learn to handle difficulty it comes right after
opportunity you must learn to handle recessions they
always follow progressions for the last six thousand see it isn’t going to
change the lesson you must learn is how to handle it and there’s all kinds of
winters right the winter when you can’t figure it out the winter when it all go
smash the winter when it turns belly-up the winter when it won’t work when you
run out of money and you’ve got a broken heart see those are wintertimes there’s all
kinds economic winters social winters personal winters when your heart is
smashed in a thousand pieces and the nights are unusually long your prayer
seem to go no higher than your head it’s wintertime barbra streisand sings it used to be so
natural to talk about forever but used to bees don’t count anymore they just
lay on the floor do we sweep them away you don’t sing meal of stones and you
don’t say you need me and you don’t bring me flowers anymore a song of winter let’s see the
disappointments come those are normal that’s part of life but the question is
how do you handle it how do you handle the coming winters and
the disappointments in the damn time as well you can’t get rid of January by
tearing it off the calendar but here’s what you can do you can get
stronger you can get wiser and you can get better the winters won’t change but you can and
that’s how life changes for you see before i understood what it was winter I
used to wish it was summer I didn’t understand what it was hard I used to
wish it was easy i didn’t know and then mr. show gave me a part of his very
unique philosophy when he said don’t wish it was easier wish you were better
see that triggered my whole life change don’t wish for less problems wish for
more Skills don’t wish for less challenge wish for more wisdom that’s
the key so that’s lesson one learn how to handle
the winters here’s lesson to learn how to take advantage of the spring that’s
the second one spring is called opportunity and spring follows winter what a great place for it you’re going
to put it somewhere that be the place to put it right after winter and pray tell
how often does spring follow enter every year with regularity 6,000 you can
always count on it the opportunity always comes days
followed nights isn’t that terrific opportunity follows difficulty but
here’s what you must learn to do underlying these two words in that key
phrase take advantage underline those two you must learn to take advantage of
the spring see just because spring rolls around is no sign you’re gonna look good
come fall you gotta do something with it in fact you have to get good at one of
two things in life plant in the spring or bacon in the fall or get somebody to
do it for you see those are about the only alternatives now here’s what else
you must do take advantage of the springs quickly because there’s only a
few just a handful of Springs have been handed each of us they don’t come
forever life is fairly brief so you got to read every book you can get your
hands on them what to do with your Springs while they’re here and take
advantage they soon run out the beatles wrote life is so short and for Jonathan and it was extra short
but life is brief Elton John’s things she lived her life like a candle in the
wind its brief so whatever you’re going to do with your life you’ve got to get
at it don’t just let the springs pass pass here’s the third major less than life to
learn learn how to protect your crops all summer you gotta take care of what you start sure enough as soon as you’ve planted
your garden in the spring the busy bugs and the noxious weeds are out to take it
and here’s the next bit of truth they will take it unless you prevent it and
that’s the third major skill to learn you’ve got to learn to prevent the
intruder from taking all the good you start it’s one of the challenges here’s two key phrases on the number
three first one all good will be attacked on this planet maybe not the
next one we get to but on this one all good will be attacked every garden
will be invaded not to think so is naive and here’s the second phrase all values
must be defended political values social values community
values family values marriage values friendship values business values every
garden must be tended all summer third major lesson now here’s number for fourth major
lessons in life to learn learn how to reap in the fall without
complaint learn the Reaper come harvest time without complaint take full responsibility for what
happens to you it’s one of the highest forms of human maturity accepting full
responsibility it’s the day you know you’ve passed from childhood to
adulthood today you accept full responsibility in another note learn to reap in the
fall without apology without apology if you do well and without complaint if you
don’t that’s maturity I used to have that long list of reasons
why i wasn’t doing well to explain you’ve got to explain right otherwise
you’re gonna look bad i used to have this funny list called reasons for not
looking good I used to blame the government I mean you can believe that or not it
was at the top of my list i had a lecture second-to-none the government
that was on the list i used to blame taxes look what you got left after they
take everything and they expect you to do well that was on the list their
prices that was easy right you walk into the supermarket with
twenty dollars come out with a little half bag so I had that on the list i
used to blame the weather i blame the traffic i used to blame my car i blame
the manufacturers I used to blame the company i blamed company policy I used to blame the training program i
blame my negative relatives they were always put me down I blame my cynical neighbors they’re
just selfish looking out for themselves won’t loan you money they were on the
list I used to blame the economy i blame the
community that’s a pretty good list for not doing well isn’t it I thought it was good i’ll never forget
one day mr. shelf is very kind but he was also very blunt and this was no
exception and I’m glad he was blunt there’s a lot of things i have missed if
he hadn’t been booked one day was sort of a curious look on his face he said
Jim just out of curiosity tell me how come you haven’t done well up until now excellent quest I thought well so i won’t look too bad
i’ll go through my list and this list i just gave you i put that on it and he
was very patient he let me go through the whole thing the government the
weather i went through this whole thing when i finished he looked my list over
very carefully he said Mr own big problem with your list you wait on it Brill when I went to work for him a few
months later I learned very quickly to tear up my list reasons for not doing
well and I threw it away and I got me a fresh piece of paper and I put one word
on it me there’s a black heritage spiritual
that says it’s not my mother normal father normal brother Norma’s sister but
it’s me O Lord standing in the need of prayer see I used to blame everything
outside and then let me give you a little philosophy to help turn my life
around for your notes here it is it’s not what happens that determines the quality of the
quantity of your life it’s not what happens and the reason is
because what happens happens to about everybody know different the Sun went
down all of his last night a common event happening and i found out that the
same things can happen to two different people one gets rich in Wednesday’s poor
why is that it’s because it’s not what happens but rather it’s what you do that
changes everything so that’s a key phrase it’s not what
happens it’s what you do what happens is about the same you might put that in
parentheses here same what people do that’s what’s different anything can happen right everything can
happen I’ve heard all the stories I’ve been one of the stories hey we can all tell stories all night
long right happenings anything can happen have you heard of Murphy’s laws anybody
here to murphys laws okay most of you have ever had these laws one of them was
if anything can go wrong it will that’s what Murphy’s laws he was not one
of the great positive speakers of the day but anyway it’s still too though
right anything can go wrong everything can go wrong for sure I falling out of
the sky so many times once to the tune of a couple of million devastating took
me a while to survive that work now wasn’t all that much but it was all
ahead I mean that’s when it’s much right when
it’s all you got if you got three to go you got one left
doing looking at bad but when it all goes has anybody been there when it all went
anybody come on rescue liars hey we’ve all been there right when it
all went course used to be a long time ago right when you ran out of money got
20 you were all through thick now you can whistle right on by zero forehead
they will bury you that’s what they will do let’s see those are the happenings right
everything can happen anything can happen but it’s not the happenings it’s
what you do about it somebody says yeah but you don’t
understand the disappointments I’ve had come on everybody’s had their share
disappointments are not special gifts reserved for the poor everybody has them the difference is
what you do about it’s not the weather i used to blame the weather and i
discovered it rains on the rich so see that won’t help two men wake up one
morning as a rainstorm on what looks out his window sees the rainstorm and he
says wow what a storm with weather like this they can’t expect you to go out and
make sales he’s stays home same morning the other
guy looks out his window sees the same storm says wow what a storm but he says
you know what with rather like this what a great day . make sales most
everybody will probably be wrong especially the sales see that’s the difference in how your
life works out it’s not what happens it’s what you do so here’s one of the key questions of
the evening starting tomorrow what are you going to do that will make
a change in your life direction good question what are you gonna do
starting tomorrow that will make a difference now see if you don’t do
something starting tomorrow that’ll make a difference guess what its gonna be the
same and see that way you can guess what the next five years are gonna be like
look at the last five because the next five are going to be like the last five
unless you major key tomorrow change at all or change a little or change
something or don’t change it’s choice time you can do whatever you
want but it’s nice to know any day you wish you can change your life

  1. If you study all our culture, they are built on employment. Employment destroys your gift and talents, it stops you even from thinking about it. We have been damaged greatly by our educational systems because they have actually been conditioning us to believe that we are only here to find a job pay some bills and die. I promise you you'll never find your
    gift in education so make a note of this, a gift can never be learned it can only be refined. NOW WAKE UP PEOPLE!

  2. Everyone that's listening to this that's enriching and growing their mind. You ARE going to be leveling up. Keep it up, never quit, never give up. Believe in yourself and keep moving forward! ?

  3. I'm 39 next month. I could wish I'd heard this 20 years ago, but that misses the point. Time for my changes.

  4. I always knew I’d be a boss and have finally grown and matured at 25. I will be a millionaire in ten years . And take a picture of this comment . 2/2/19

  5. My 18 year old cousin bought a 90 thousand dollars house.
    I ask her if she could afford it.
    She replied. how do you spend on alcohol weed Videogames restaurants clothes i dont need hanging out with friends,,,,,

    so thas how i ended up here ??

  6. Fucking clown audience laughing ? and laughing ? you must be a small timer if this is news for you. This is old shit as homo sapiens sapiens

  7. This is bullshit, he clearly hasn't read the Bible. It is chock full of incest, rape and murder along with ridiculous pseudo science.

  8. we should write down what our goals, write down what we2 don't nee ,avoid going to the malls to not to be tempted to buy things we don't need, don't buy yet another cellphone, if still working don't have vices,and don't come to casino's casino is for crazy rich asian,European american citizen who don't know how spend money.

  9. The only thing that has changed from the time of this recording, is that we know the earth is not only 6,000 years old. Other than that, the message is timeless.

  10. i LIKEd this after hearing the first 4 words! now i'll continue listening, knowing i'll want to LIKE it again after it ends!

  11. p.s. and no he did not quote a negro spiritual! lol! LOVED IT!!! love this dude! SO HAPPY i discovered him LITERALLY just hours ago. feel very ignorant about that. but i'll get over that feeling the more i listen to him…. usually don't care for listening to "motivational speakers". Lipton is probably the only one on my fav list thus far (because of what he said about reprogramming the subconscious, which answered question i was wrangling with . . .) NOW i'm adding this dude to my list! THANKS FOR UPLOADING!!! i feel so less ignorant having discovered him!!!! & sooooo much more empowered!!!!!


    1. Learn how to Handle the Winters (social and economic) The Winters wont change but you can..
    2. Learn how to take advantage of the Spring (opportunity) do something with it. They soon run out.
    3. Learn how to protect your crops all Summer (they will take it unless you prevent it) all good will be attacked. All values must be defended.
    4. Learn how to reap in the fall without complaint (take full responsibility for what happens to you) without apology its maturity. No reason to explain stop blaming. Tear up your list of reasons of failure.

    It's NOT what happens that determines the quantity or quality of life. But rather it's what you do that changes Everything! ??‍♂️?‍♂️?‍♂️ LETZ GO!!!!

  13. You come with nothing and leave with nothing. Success is knowing what you don't want. Rich is not the answer when their no intellect, talent, or culture.

  14. ?My favorite quote of Jim:
    "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.

  15. Came here because i realised no matter how much i make without the wealth mindset i will always be back to 0. Reprogramming my whole mindset in regards to WEALTH as we speak all 2019.

  16. Jim Rohn hard died but the voice I hear so similar to Jim Kwik?
    Great lessons, it's never too late to take action NOW

  17. But there are people who are incredibly gifted talented and skilled and although they aren't financially destitute (they're usually financially above average) they aren't rich either, so how do you describe the distribution of skill when it doesn't always correlate to the distribution of wealth? Because beyond the necessity of money for getting food, skill capabilitiy capacity talent ability, whatever you want to call it, is all I'm interested in.

  18. This audio seminar digresses eveywhere. He went from almost breaking down some non theological practical uses from lessons in the bible to almost going over how to increase your bank account from writing a list of your goals then almost letting you in how to cure the disease of a bad attitude. This guy is everyhere and no where at the same time.Weak shit.

  19. Remember that Jim Rohn taught Tony Robbins. jim Rohn is the best teacher. I listen to his seminars the man knows what his talking about. For the first time in my life I wrote my goals down. I have a journal for my long term goals and short term goals.

  20. This changed my life. Thank you everyone involved YouTube, Jim Rohn, and habits of the wealthy. I listened to this every morning for 1 year. And now I am debt free. On my way towards my first million. Thank you.

  21. Amazing, jim rohn one of my favorite motivational speakers of all time, I have a few of his books, full of wisdom, thanks for the video

  22. Who here misses playing Sonic The Hedgehog, Mario Kart, Killer Instinct or Mortal Kombat not to mention Street Fighter?

  23. I am from Namibia, i use to trade currencies (forex). but i changed now to trading stocks. basically i need this king of inspiration to make the right choices in life. Thank you for such Valuable information.

  24. Money if distribute to everyone the illumanti would not get it all back i promise you .internet will end the shit show

  25. Thank you very much Jim Rohn. Rest in peace! Great motivational speech and great man. Thank you for sharing this.

  26. Jack n Jill
    Went up the hill
    Jack chased a wad of dollar ?
    Jack fell down
    He Broke his crown ?
    But Jill she kept watching after
    She observed
    And listened to Robert
    So she got much smarter

    Jill hiked up
    She Didn’t give up
    Bought the stocks
    When the markets crashed
    Built a house ?
    When properties were priced like ?
    And then charged many dollar ?
    To teach Jack and fam
