Goodbye Jim Rohn – You Will Be Missed

  • Sharebar

Jim RohnAmerica’s Foremost Business Philosopher, Jim Rohn, passed away earlier this week after an 18 month battle with Pulmonary Fibrosis.  He has been one of my favorite speakers for many years now, and he has been a source of wisdom, strength, and motivation for me personally.

Jim has reached out for the past 46 years through his seminars, books, audio, videos, and inspirational writings to make a difference in millions of lives.  His friend of over 55 years, Harold Dyck, reminded us that…

As Jim is ending one life he is simultaneously being birthed into a new life.  One that he has talked about over the years and anticipated with great joy in his last remaining days.

In the tribute on his website, there is an anonymous quote that says …

When you are born you enter the world crying while everyone else is rejoicing and when you die hopefully you have lived such a life that everyone will be crying while you are rejoicing.  Jim Rohn lived such a life.

As a Christian, I know the hope for which he rejoiced.  While I am sad that he is no longer with us on this earth, I rejoice with him as he most certainly is hearing the words, “Welcome home.  Well done, thy good and faithful servant.”

It's a nice tribute Brad – and although I'd never heard of Jim before, watching the videos just now shows he was obviously a highly charismatic and respected person who added a lot to the lives of those around him. I like his mentor's phrase “Go to work on yourself harder than you work on your job”. Cheers, Will

Very nice tribute! I can't imagine anyone who accomplished anything in this generation NOT being affected by Jim Rohn.

I featured one of his audio recordings on The Law of Sowing and Reaping last month. That is one of my favorites of his. I will be doing more with him and Zig Ziglar so if you keep reading you will see more of my favorites from them.

Thanks for sharing, I been listening to this type of stuff since I was 12, but somehow I never came across him. Now today I found him here and on Frank Kern site. Sad to here he is gone but his material and words will live on forever.

I think he was one of those men that are very well known in certain circles, but nobody had ever heard of him in others. I've always loved his stuff though, and you're right that his words will live on through his materials.
