Episode 38  introduces a new series!! Personal Development Greats. I am so excited to bring you this new series. It’s an idea I have been thinking about and working on for awhile. There are so many fantastic personal development teachers out there, but it’s hard to really know all of them and the best things they can bring to your life. This series will be spread out over the next several months so that I can touch on other topics in between. We are starting this series off with my all time favorite personal development mentor- Jim Rohn.

So the goal of this episode is to help you to get to know Jim Rohn and some of the amazing things he has done for the world of personal development. What he has done for me and what he can do for you.

Now there are two very specific reasons that I picked Jim to the first person in this series. First to me he embodies what personal development is. Myself and many others equate the words personal development with him. Second by far he has had the biggest influence on my life as it relates to personal development.

“Learn how to be happy with what you have, while you pursue all that you want.”

-Jim Rohn

We will talk about :

  • A brief look into Jim’s life
  • How I got to know him
  • Some of the programs of his that I have used
  • Some fundamental things Jim has taught me that you can benefit from also

Jim Rohn is considered by many to be a national treasure and for good reason. I hope that after listening to this episode you will find some great reasons to pick up one of his books or listen to one of his talks and find out for yourself how amazing he really is. His style of delivery is exceptional and will draw you in. You will be excited to see what you can make of your life after listening to just one of his teachings.

Please make sure to subscribe in Apple Podcasts or the player of your choice if you haven’t already so you never miss out on the fun. Have you read one of Jim’s books or listened to one of his talks? If so share your thoughts about it below. Have another favorite personal development great? Share that with us below also. Together we will be the changes and differences we want to see in the world.  If you think someone else could benefit from learning about personal development, feel free to share this with them. I look forward to connecting with you next week!

Don’t forget to check out this week’s episode of Kickass Every Day TV where I will be sharing with you Jim’s four main thoughts on personal development.
