Words of Wisdom from Jim Rohn

“Learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job.  I’ve worked hard on my personal development, and I must admit that this has been the most challenging assignment of all. This business of personal development lasts a lifetime.  But here’s the great axiom of life:  To have more than you’ve got, become more than you are.  Unless you change how you are, you’ll always have what you’ve got.”  – Jim Rohn (Lessons on Life).

I believe this to be completely true!  If there’s anything you need to change in your life… your health, your career, your relationships – YOU are the change.  Most people play the blame game.  They blame the situation, the boss, the spouse, or circumstances for why they can’t have what they want.  The change you are searching for will always come from within you.  YOU FIRST… and the rest will follow.

You are the author of your own life

Most people think of a “book” when they hear the word “author”.  But I have come to believe that we are all authors, we are all writing the stories of our own lives on a daily basis.  What we create, what we decide, what we choose to do with our time are all the elements that create the stories we live.  Just as writers focus on the structure of a paragraph, we as life authors need to focus on the structure of what we want to create for ourselves on a daily basis.   What is so incredibly wonderful, is that we can redesign, reshape, or recreate our experience at any moment we choose to.  We can change the words we use, we can change the actions we take, we can change the direction of our story… because we have the pen to do so. 

When we start to take responsibility for our lives, we begin to take control of how our life unfolds.  I have found that most people who are unhappy in their lives, blame someone else, their life circumstance, or simply that life has been unfair to them.   Yes, there are times and circumstances that are out of our control, but as we’ve heard so many times before, it’s not what happens to us that makes the difference, it’s what we do with it and how we deal with it. 

It’s never to late to write a new chapter in your life, no matter your age or your situation.  What are your dreams?  Take a piece of paper and write out the story you want for your life…. you just might be suprised at what changes begin to take place.  You just might find yourself on the BESTSELLER list of life!

Nick Vujicic – True Inspiration!

Nick is one of the most inspiring people I’ve ever come across.  His attitude, standard, and approach to life is a true example of the human spirit and living life without limits!  He chooses possibility over what would seem to be an impossible challenge.   What is so both beautiful and inspiring is that he doesn’t allow  his external circumstance to have any bearing on his internal experience.  What a gift.  What an example.  What a beautiful life.
