Today I want to share with you a few key concepts,
three key concepts actually, that Jim Rohn had a major impact on my life by implanting
these ideas, the power of these ideas, the power of an idea, these ideas into my mind. The first one was simple and you might have
heard it over the course of your career, but I tell you I heard it from Jim Rohn. And that was simply this, He said to me, first
on audio, then in seminar and then eventually in person, the same thing “Eric for things
to change, you have to change. For things to get better Eric, you have to
get better. It’s not other things that need to change,
it’s you that needs to change.” This exploration of personal responsibility
and personal growth changed my whole life. Every time I started hoping for other things
to change, I started saying nope, I need to change. Nope I need to get better. When things go tough I said, “Eric, you have
to get better.” And that really changed, when I was able to
take control of my life through that philosophy, for things to change you have to change, for
things to get better you have to get better. And guess what it worked for prospects too. All I had to tell prospects is, guess what
I learned, for things to change I have to change. For things to get better I have to get better. And the prospects would go, “You know what,
youre right. Fine, I am ready to get going, let’s make
it happen. For things to change I have to change too.” Right? So that was concept number one. For things to change, you have to change. For things to get better, you have to get
better. Concept number two is, success isn’t something
you pursue, success is something you attract, by the person that you become. Wow, this changed everything for me, when
I went, “Wait a minute, you mean I need to become more attractive in business, and then
people will attract to me. And then I don’t have to chase and pursue
to try to get success.” Wow that changed everything. If I started working on becoming better again,
getting stronger, getting better. Learn to attract success and that’s what I
found out has been so true over the course of my career, if I work on becoming more attractive
in business, everything will start to take care of itself. I don’t have to chase and be so desperate
all the time. So that was concept number two, becoming more
attractive, learning how to attract success verses pursue success. And concept number three is, and this was
so great for me, because I struggled in formal education. He said, “Formal education Eric will make
you a living, you will get a check, from a formal education, you’ll get a paycheck. Self education will make you a fortune. So formal education, everybody goes through,
you kind of have to go through that. But what are you going to do after formal
education is done? Self education will make you a fortune. And I went, “Wow, Ok.” He was the one that had me start, cause back
then if I read any book, within about two pages, I was ready to go to sleep. I was just exhausted. But he said Eric just start by reading ten
pages a day. Find a book that interests you and read ten
pages a day. You can get through a 300 page book in a month,
if you start to do that, and develop the discipline. Because I started just listening to audio
programs, I did not have any discipline to read. And he made me become a reader. He said readers, are leaders. Self education what are you doing to improve
your skills all the time. Are you taking charge? And one of the things I am most proud of is
how much I have educated myself since I left formal education. How much I have educated myself, how much
I have read, how many seminars I have gone to, how many skills I have worked on and developed,
how many coaches I have had and mentors I have had in my life, in order to get better. Self education will make you a fortune, formal
education will make you a living. You will get a paycheck. Self education you get to be financially free. I have read probably two books a week on average
for the last 20 plus years, so that’s a lot of books, a lot of books. Why? Because Jim Rohn taught me, that self education
will make you a fortune. And if you stop growing you start dying. So I want to continue in that growth pattern. So those are three key concepts that Jim Rohn
taught me that helped me and that helped my network marketing career. For things to change I had to change, for
things to get better I had to get better. To attract, success is something you attract
it’s not something you pursue. And self education will make you a fortune,
formal education will just make you a living. Those three things helped me so much, I hope
they will help you. I hope you got value from this and ladies
