Jim Rohn was a farm boy from Idaho who went on to become one of the
world’s most influential motivational speakers. He usually began his seminars
by explaining that he was born on a farm in Idaho, and that he quit college
after having completed just one year. Yet he went on to become a
multimillionaire. Here are 7 Strategies for wealth & happiness :
1. Unleash the Power of Goals
It’s important to have well-defined goals and to have enough reasons to
want to achieve them. Set long-range and short-term goals, including
detailed description of what you want and the reason why you want to
achieve them. The goals need to be set high enough to excite your
imagination and motivate you to take action.
2. Seek Knowledge
You can spend some time at the end of the day and at the end of major
periods such as a week, month or year, to reflect upon the happenings in
your life and study the positives and negatives, so that you can learn from
them and be better. You can also learn from other people’s successes and
3. Learn How to Change
Jim shares that your life will change only when you change, and that better is
not something you wish; it’s something you become. You have to eliminate
self-imposed limitations such as procrastination, blame and excuses, that are
stopping your personal development. Be disciplined, change your habits, and
keep nudging yourself in the right direction.
4. Control Your Finances
Learn to live on 70% of your after-tax income, and allocate the remaining 30%
on charity and giving back to the community (10%), on creating wealth with
investment in products, property or stocks (10%), and on savings (10%). You
need to have a financial statement to keep score of your financial life.
5. Master Time
Start to regain control of your time by learning to say no, and by never mixing
work and play. Find out when you are most productive and analyze your habits.
You can plan your life with a journal for good ideas, a project book for keeping
tabs on your projects, a calendar for keeping track of all your information and
things to do, and a game plan for planning your day before you start.
6. Surround Yourself with Winners
Separate yourself from those who are destructive to your well-being, and
spend more time with the right people. Look for people who spend time
reflecting on the meaning of life and who accomplish great things through
discipline and perseverance. Seek out those whom you admire and who
share your life’s priorities.
7. Learn the Art of Living Well
Be happy with what you have while pursuing what you want.
The good life is an attitude and comes from a lifestyle that is
fully developed and provides a constant sense of joy.
Knowledge fueled by emotion equals action. Action is the
last part of the formula. It’s the ingredient that ensures
results. Only action can cause reaction. Further, only
positive action can cause positive reaction.
