The Ultimate Jim Rohn Library by Jim Rohn - Notes

Deepak Shukla’s Notes on The Ultimate Jim Rohn Library by Jim Rohn:

Hey guys,

I finished reading this book on the 10th January 2021.

Here’s a synopsis of the book I grabbed from Amazon:

“So, what is it about Jim Rohn that has made him so tremendously effective in teaching others how to become so massively successful?

The answer is he has a unique way of helping you discover that you are so much more capable and powerful than you have ever imagined. Jim’s own rise from rags to riches has been well documented and his list of students reads like a Who’s Who of top achievers. Those who learn from him can become virtually unstoppable. Jim Rohn recognized that it takes longer for some people to flip on the “success switch” every person has inside them.”

And here are my actual notes I took whilst I was listening to this on Audible:

  • Make all you can out of all you have
  • Become all you can become
  • If you care at all you’ll get some result if you care enough you’ll get exceptional results
  • Share what you’ve got
