Everyone needs a mentor. Throughout our lives, mentors come and go, slipping in an out, playing large or small parts. They are our parents, our coaches, that one teacher that took the time to care. They are the inspirational speaker who’s books and seminars speak to our hearts and change our lives.
During my teens, I went through a stormy period of troubled behavior and wayward self- absorbed, self-pitied behaviors. It has been said that you could see me coming or going by the size of the chip on my shoulder. Then I came across the writings of a laid back simple man named Jim Rohn. Jim’s unassuming gentle approach to how to live a good life broke through to a troubled young girl and started to turn her around on the road to recovery.
I began to open my eyes to more great thinkers, including one of Jim’s favorite’s- the bible-and have enjoyed a long journey now of decades of listening, reading and sharing words from many of the great motivators of our time. But for me, Jim Rohn was the first. Several years ago, it was my great honor to watch Jim speak in person and it was one of the greatest blessings of my life.
Jim’s legacy is a powerful reminder of what it takes to live a great life..
He reminds us that our words do matter. Our words have the power and the magic to change lives. Let’s be careful with them. Shall we?
On how to live a good life from the Master Himself.
