Jim Rohn's Secret of Success

Jul 14, 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 was a millionaire by the age of 31. He attributes his success to his ability to look after or care for the success characteristics others neglected.

While his friends neglected to listen to successful people, Jim Rohn looked after this asked of his life.

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

Jim Rohn read good books to improve his intellect and his attitude. His friends neglected to pick up the right kinds of books, or any books at all.

There are enough opportunities, money, education, and jobs for everyone. There's no shortage. Don't blame you lack of success of some external factor. You know the old saying, "The buck stops here." If you're not achieving the kind of success that you want in your like, take ownership of it.

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

We neglect to live our lives. We neglect to surround ourselves with people who will help us succeed. We neglect to set meaningful goals and then to strive to achieve them. We neglect to work on our attitudes. We neglect...

Neglect will tear you down. Every time you neglect something in your life, you open your soul to decay. Eventually, you won't recognize the person you've become.

Neglect affects our spirit. We lose faith in ourselves. Our self-esteem plummets. Our attitudes become decidedly negative. People around us are affected as well. We often let these people down. We lose confidence in our abilities. In our ability to succeed.

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.

Acting will remove neglect from your life. Period. So start doing something. Now.
