This is the last of the mini-series of my collection of the late Jim Rohn’s wisdom that has significantly impacted on my business life.
I’d like to start with one of his most important personal philosophies – it is the set of the sails that determines our destiny as the same wind blows on us all. He talked about the wind of disaster, the political wind, the social wind, etc. It is not what happened that determines our future, he said. We need to be able to correct errors of mis-judgement and set sails for a different outcome.
This message is EMPOWERING as he stated that the next two years can be drastically different from the last two if you wish to!
With this personal philopsophy as foundation, anyone can change their circumstances!
KNOWLEDGE is POWER
Jim’s philosophy is that if you don’t know that, you will remain in the same situation year after year. Nothing seems to be posssible!
Profits are Better than Wages
This is another empowering knowledge that Jim learned. Using the power of leverage in network marketing, Jim managed to built his network marketing empire the right way.
He built his business part time whilst he was having a full time job. His philosophy that profits are better than wages resulted in his using his time wisely. He was working full time for a living; part time on his fortune!
The Magic of Part Time
By focusing clearly according to the Law of Sowing and Reaping, Jim quickly was earning as much money working part time in network marketing as he was earning full time in his job.
He later achieved his second goal when he was earning twice the money in his part-time network markeing business as he was working full time in his job.
The magic of starting part time is that Jim created his very own incredible invitation! When other people noticed that he had two new cars, one for his wife and one for him, he had a story to tell.
By the time the part time income doubled his full time one, the story was even more powerful:
“I found a way, through a unique opportunity, and am now earning twice as much the money as I am working full time. Did you want o hear about it?”
The ‘Electrifying Story”
By having fast results, Jim was able to invite others to take alook at what he was doing by telling this ‘electrifying story’ of his that he used until he changed to become a full time network marketer.
He joked about having to reluctantly give up his story!
The Logic Behind this Part Time Trick
Jim explained that a thousand dollars extra income would make a difference to people’s lives. It was the change in lifstyle that had the powerful impact on others. While earning an extra thousand dollars may not capture other people’s attention, earning a thousand dollars working part-time has a much bigger impact.

(“Enough is enough”)
