“Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.”
– Jim Rohn: American entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker
Jim Rohn grew up as a farm boy in Idaho. As a young adult, he became a stock clerk at Sears. It was then that he met his mentor, Earl Shoaff, and his life was drastically changed forever. Rohn started out making a fortune in the direct sales industry, but his gift for personal development took him to ‘stardom’. Many of the people we look up to as personal development gurus were influenced by him.
What a great story! I love stories like that. They inspire me becasue they make me ask…What is my story?
What is YOUR story?
I did not grow up poor on a farm. or work as a stock clerk. I actually had a decent middle class living, went to college and am a trained dentist. But is that where I want my story to end?
Jim Rohn is absolutely right in the quote above – Formal education will train you in some chosen career and will make you a nice living. And if you are passionate about it, then even better for you. But your true success, fulfillment AND fortune come from SELF-EDUCATION. Personal Development!
And this is also what you can truly pass on to others and leave behind as a lasting legacy.
It is the personal development that creates the greater story.
And that is why I love the Empower Network. Because our primary focus, is your personal development. And through this…you can make your own fortune.
There really isn’t a better way to go about it or a better company to partner with.
