Why Jim Rohn's Biography?

When I started in 2000 as a fresh Independent Herbalife (nutritional) Distributor (just like Jim Rohn has been a nutritional distributor), I met him during a Herbalife meeting, where he was invited as a guest speaker. Most of all, I was TOUCHED (in positive way) by his "rich" quotes, feeling like He was talking just to me personally, as he knew me personally, as he knew "what" precisely and exactly I need in my life. After this first lessons of Jim Rohn, I met him almost every year once or twice, listening and learning between thousands in his audiences.

(Jim Rohn)

Favorite Quote that affected me most of all:

"FEAR is Your Biggest Enemy"

Jim Rohn's Favorite Approach

Jim Rohn always approached the subjects of personal and business success by asking four questions to the people in the audiences:

Why? - Why not? - Why not you? - Why not now?

Then he answered those and related questions, revealing practical, perceptive secrets for success and productivity. His special style, laced with witticisms and anecdotes, captivates listeners, igniting their enthusiasm and "can-do" spirit.

So just at the time, and just in time, when I was asking myself "if I can be a successful Herbalife Distributor?" or even "if a can become a fortunate entrepreneur?", Jim Rohn was answering during his meetings all my questions with the positive assurance:

"Yes You Can".

Among his most thought-provoking topics were: sales and entrepreneurial skills, leadership, sales and marketing, success and personal development. And the last topic, "personal development", was MY biggest problem in life. So I started reading ALL his books, I attended as much as possible all his meetings, and I listened to all his audio programs. Also I discovered other great thinkers and writers. And really: my life started changing. I knew, my "fear" to start as an "entrepreneur", was "counteractioning myself" to become successful. Thanks to his powerful lectures, I conquered this "fear".

Jim Rohn is the best-selling author of numerous powerful audio and video training programs such as The Art of Exceptional Living, The Power of Ambition, and Cultivating an Unshakable Character, and many other written publications. His dynamic Weekend Seminars gave motivation and encouragement to thousands each year. When Jim Rohn passed away in December 2009, he left a legacy of training and motivation that will continue to inspire generations.
