Excerpts taken from The Treasury of Quotes by Jim Rohn
One of my absolute favorite mentors, teachers and educators was Jim Rohn. I had the pleasure of knowing his Daughter and working close with her as well as being graced by the positive and motivating words of her late Father, Jim Rohn. Jim was one of my personal heroes a man with no limits, a man with strength and conviction delivered from every word. Every moment he graced us with was with meaning and had great value. To develop, grow and expand into a place where every word that exits the tip of your tongue has depth is a really profound place. This place is where Jim was always.
In Memory of Jim Rohn and his words of wisdom we will be sharing some excerpts taken directly from the Treasury of quotes he left behind. We are reading from this brilliant collection of more than 365 quotes on 60 topics gathered from Jim’s personal journals, seminars and books spanning more than 40 years. If you haven’t heard of Jim Rohn before please take some time to read on as we share his words. Always with meaning and intention this man was incredible. We will begin a series called Vitamins for the mind sharing a different two topics in each entry. The firs two we will be covering are words and vocabulary and Jim’s take on these.
Vitamins for the Mind
by Jim Rohn
The two great words of antiquity are behold and beware. Behold the possibilities and beware the temptations.
Vocabulary enables us to interpret and to express. If you have a limited vocabulary, you will also have a limited vision and a limited future.
Well chosen words mixed with measured emotions is the basis of affecting people.
It’s okay to send flowers, but don’t let the flowers do all the talking. Flowers have a limited vocabulary. About the best flowers can say is that you remembered. But your words tell the rest.
Words do two major things: They provide food for the mind and create light for understanding and awareness.
