Alright now that the formalities are through, let`s start tackling issues. I have been an advocate for the continuous improvement for some time now. I study people, read books, listen to audio and video; the list is endless. Having said that, one of the most valuable lessons I have learned is to consider the source. This means consider the individual who is giving you the advice, before you either apply it or get personally offended by it. An example: don`t take advice on relationships from someone who is in an unhealthy one. I personally do not take financial or career advice from someone who is not earning the income that I want to earn. Those are a few clear cut examples, and here is my reasoning. 1) If they don`t have what you want or are not where you want to be, do they really know how to get there? 2) Jealousy. Whether people are aware or not, some simply will sabotage your dreams and goals because they don`t have the guts to do what you are doing! 3) You are the only person that can tell you what you can and cannot do. The trouble with businesses and corporations is that they are set up so that you need someone else`s permission in order to go for a promotion and advance your career. Even is that is the case, percieveirence will always prevail. Get excited stay focus and Make an impact!
I recently found out that Jim Rohn, Business philosopher and Motivational Speaker died on December 5 2009. He had an 18 month battle with Pulmonary Fibrosis. Mr. Rohn was 79, he did what he loved for 46 years. It may seem odd that I am paying tribute to a man I never met. However the fact of the matter is, even though I never met Jim Rohn I knew him quite well; or should he knew me. I listen to his wisdom and lessons daily, and I am a member of his website.
I remember stumbling on to some of his work, when I was looking for a way to make changes. “When the student is ready the teacher shall appear.” Most who know me, know that my passion and life’s purpose is to become a motivational speaker as well. I am currently writing a book containing my insights on how to improve life in all area’s. I can only wish that I become half the man Jim Rohn was and is, he wisdom will live forever.
Jim Rohn (September 17, 1930 – December 5, 2009) an American entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker.
