Review of Lessons on Life by Jim Rohn

I just received as a gift Lessons on Life – How to Live a Successful Life by Jim Rohn. This book is a collection of quotes from one of the world’s best mentors Jim Rohn showing his depth of perception of what we need to do to make a difference in our world. There is also a DVD included with the book.

Pros of the book

I find Lessons on Life is an excellent short book (128 pages) that can help remind me and you the essentials of what we need to do without us having to revise a whole book on Jim Rohn’s teachings.

There is simply not enough time in eachday to pick up a favorite book and read it every day but when I flip through this book I am reminded of what I need to do daily to keep my life on track.

Check out some of Jim Rohn’s quotes from the book and then get yourself a copy. The quotes are quick powerful reminders to help us keep crystal clear on what works.

“Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the fundamentals”

Here for example, the beauty is in the simplicity as Jim knew that most people will never consistently apply fundamentals that is why they don’t succeed.

There are 13 sections in total. For example, One on Living Well, One on Success and here is a quote from the section on Happiness:

“Happiness is not an accident. Nor is it something you wish for. Happiness is something you design.”

Here is one from the section on the influence of others:

“Keep the weeds of negative influence from your life. “Farm” the seeds of constructive influence.”


“Don’t join the easy crowd, you won’t grow.”

On Living Well:

“Be happy with what you have while pursuing what you want.”

On Life Being Worthwhile:

“Let others lead small lives, but not you.

Let others argue over small things but not you.

Let others cry over small hurts but not you.

Let others leave their futures in someone else’s hands, but not you.”

 Cons of the book

Some people say its 128 pages is too short but maybe they forgot it included a DVD.

Inject more of Jim Rohn’s great ideas into your mind with this book and DVD.
