The Secret of Success from Jim Rohn

Jul 11, 2008
Jim Rohn, one of the country's leading experts on success and personal development, stated that the one reason why people don't succeed is NEGLECT.

So his secret of success is to not neglect. Right. Do the opposite. A quick trip to the thesaurus reveals that the antonym, or opposite, of neglect is the care for or to look after. Are there things in your life that you should look after that you have been neglecting?

Jim Rohn succeeded at an early age, 31. While most of his friends struggled, Jim Rohn became a millionaire. He says that he took care of what others neglected. He further says that it was early for him to do.

Jim took care of listening to successful people.

While his friends neglected to set goals, Jim Rohn carefully cultivated his goals.

Jim took care of his mind and attitude by reading good books.

Do we have enough opportunities? Yes. Is there enough money for everybody to get their piece? Yes. Can everyone get an education? Yes. Are there enough jobs? Yes. Is there something out there that you would be good at? Of course.

So why do we fail? Why do we live mediocre lives? Because we neglect.

We neglect to try new things. We neglect to seek mentors. We neglect to ignore the naysayers. We neglect to work. We neglect to set goals. We neglect to keep a positive attitude in the face of adversity.

The problem with neglect is that it affects us, well, negatively. We suffer. Not usually in a physical way, but maybe, if you neglect to exercise and eat right.

Neglect actually affects us on a spiritual and mental level. We lose confidence in ourselves. Our attitudes turn negative. We let down the people we love most. We doubt we can succeed. We doubt our talents. We lose ourselves.

If you want to break the cycle of neglect in your life, you need to get in the habit of action. "Just do it," like the old Nike ads admonished. Study the habits of successful people. Do what they do.

When you do something, anything, you will rid yourself of neglect.
