life changing

An incredible eye opener. My only sadness is that I wasn't introduced to this book sooner in my life, although ironically it means so much more. If you truely want a better life in an easy step by step process as well as the answers to why things haven't worked out well for you until now, then I urge you to read/listen to this incredible and inspiring book!

Recorded seminars

I think the point comes across well but listening to too many taped seminars in the most annoying voice, made me cringe at times!

What everyone needs to hear!

I really enjoyed this audiobook - it's not too long, and quite easy to digest, but contains a lot of really valuable information on how to improve your life.

It has helped to get me out of a rut, and given a real enthusiasm for my life again. I now have clear goals for the future, and am enjoying working towards them and excited about achieving them.

Highly recommend!

Lacking Depth.

I was expecting more based on the reviews but there is almost no major insight or depth to any of the advice given.

If this is your first book on self improvement it will give a good overview of how to approach the subject and what areas to focus on. Unfortunately it doesn't give any depth on the subjects making it more of a checklist of where to start looking.

Jim Rohn's delivery of the content also frustrated me. It may just be his accent but the phrasing and emphasis in the delivery just annoyed me, probably just personal taste though.

Not worth the time

This book contains nothing unique and is padded with banal anecdotes and bible quotes. The only thing of value was the constant talk on goal setting but this concept is far from original. If you're familiar with almost any other self-improvement books then the chances are Mr Rohn has nothing to offer you.

BRILLIANT!!!

I love Jim Rogn’s stuff anyway but this really encapsulates everything he teaches in one nice package.

If you have to listen to one thing in your life, this would be it.

I’ve read so many success books but Jim covers pretty much everything high level but to the point in this audio. Jim’s personality is so funny and makes it easy to listen to. The music is dated but who cares when the content is awesome!

I now know why there are so many 5 star reviews!

For me, the most memorable quote from the book: "Do not major in minor things." Another good one: "All leaders are readers." Rohn's driving philosophy is to learn to be a student of your life. Study your life. Study happiness. Study wealth. Study health. Also, the greatest treasures you can leave behind are your library, your journals, and your photos.

You never know what can trigger a life changing moment. A verse in a song. A quote from a movie. A conversation with a friend or colleague. This book has many, many anecdotal triggers. You will want to read it/hear it again, and again.

Good but not his best

The Ultimate Jim Rohn Library also offered by Audible is more comprehensive and encompasses most of this book. I would only buy this book if you own all the others and just love / have to have them all.

Another exceptional book from Mr. Rohn

I am always sad when I see the end of a really good book ending, and even though this one isn't a storybook, it is no different. I became absolutely addicted to personal growth about 2 years ago when I came upon Tony Robbins' books. I moved through those and then worked my way through the material of Jack Canfield, Bob Proctor and Earl Nightingale. Like these other amazing speakers, Jim Rohn has an incredible way of communicating the disciplines we must adapt in order to grow and become everything we desire. My children are 3 and 5, but as soon as they can comprehend this material, it will be part of their daily lessons. We already teach them much of it through the chores they are assigned and the examples my husband and I live by, but whether they like it or not, they will be surrounded by these teachings; not to pass this along to them would be one of the biggest disservices I could imagine.

loved this book!!!

Jim Rohn has been my mentor ever since I started personal development. Even if he is not with us, he was immortalized with his words and positive attitude on sharing what he learned. This short audio is a good way to write everything down that you need to change in your life! My piece to you is make your own luck, there is no such thing as good or bad luck, you make your own luck! And never Quit!

Fantastic

Inspiring book. I'd always heard of Jim Rohn and now I know why he's so highly regarded. The message of 'the art of exceptional living' is simple. I'm looking forward to implementing the practice in my life. If you're looking for ways to turn your life around this is it.
