    "Success...has multiple layers of meaning. Success is also an elusive notion, a paradox. After all, it is both a journey and a destination, isn't it? It's the steady, measured progress toward a goal and the achievement of a goal. Success is both an accomplishment and a wisdom that comes to those who understand the potential power of life. It's an awareness of value and the cultivation of worthwhile values through discipline. It's both material and spiritual, practical and mystical. Success is a proce "Success...has multiple layers of meaning. Success is also an elusive notion, a paradox. After all, it is both a journey and a destination, isn't it? It's the steady, measured progress toward a goal and the achievement of a goal. Success is both an accomplishment and a wisdom that comes to those who understand the potential power of life. It's an awareness of value and the cultivation of worthwhile values through discipline. It's both material and spiritual, practical and mystical. Success is a process of turning away from something in order to turn toward something better - from lethargy to exercise, from candy to fruit, from spending to investing. Success is responding to an invitation to change, to grow, to develop, and to become - an invitation to move up to a better place in order to gain a better vantage point. But most of all, success is making your life what you want it to be. Considering all the possibilities, considering all the examples of others whose lives you admire, what do you want from your life? That is the big question! Remember, success is not a set of standards from our culture but rather a collection of personal values clearly defined and ultimately achieved." (Jim Rohn, 7 Strategies for Wealth & Happiness, Page 17) As the title of this book indicates, this book covers 7 Strategies for Wealth & Happiness. They are: Strategy One: UNLEASH THE POWER OF GOALS Strategy Two: SEEK KNOWLEDGE Strategy Three: LEARN HOW TO CHANGE Strategy Four: CONTROL YOUR FINANCES Strategy Five: MASTER TIME Strategy Six: SURROUND YOURSELF WITH WINNERS Strategy Seven: LEARN THE ART OF LIVING WELL Each strategy has great insight from the personal development master himself, so much so, that I had a hard time putting this book down because he makes each one so simple a child could understand and in a down-to-earth way. Some of these strategies I knew, some I didn't, some I did, but then stopped practicing for some time. This was a good refresher and wake up call to get back in the game of life and win and maybe fall, but get back up again, again and again!

He uses the story of his own life to illustrate how important one's attitude and discipline is to becoming successful.

He uses the story of his own life to illustrate how important one's attitude and discipline is to becoming successful. One of his well-known quotes is that "success is no more than the natural consequence of consistently applying the fundamentals of success to life." The most important part of becoming successful is learning to make and accomplish goals. More specifically, well-defined goals for each stage of life are important in order to set them into action. He then goes into how to set goals. First, ask yourself these questions: What do I want to do? What I want to be? What do I want to see? What do I want to have? Where do I want to go? What would I like to share? Use these questions to get started in goal setting and then make sure each goal is concrete. The next point Rohn makes is on time management. Prioritize your goals so you don't end up spending major time on minor priorities. He also explains that one should put all concentration and focus into everything you do. If it's worth doing then you should put all of your attention towards it. He then goes into the importance of seeking knowledge. The first step is personal reflection, followed by seeking help from others, and also from reading and listening to others. Another piece of advice he gives is to work harder on yourself than you do on your job. He then goes into the seasons of life: in winter you have to bear down and deal with all of the bad stuff, and then use all of the bad stuff to grow and prepare for the future; in spring you have to take advantage of the situation, look for opportunities and take advantage of them, don't just enjoy the nice weather; in summer you have to protect your investments and the good things in your life, this means your values and goals as well as your investments, when things are going well you have to deal with attacks; in fall you have to reap what you sowed the rest of the year, that means for better or worse you collect on the work you did all year. He talked about developing yourself physically, spiritually, and intellectually. He talks about the most important tool for doing this, which is discipline. He then goes into finances, which he suggests to improve by following the 70/30 rule. That is, after taxes, you are allowed to spend 70% of your income on expenses, etc., but the last 30% goes to: 10% charity, 10% investment, and 10% savings. He also talks more about time management and describes 4 ways to manage time: the drifter, the workaholic, 9 to 5 person, and the enlightened time management person. The enlightened person schedules time so that there is time for each of the other strategies. Just as much work is completed as does the workaholic because the time spent working is more productive. Time for play and reflection is also scheduled so that there is a time for everything. By carefully scheduling the parts of your life and being productive when it is important to be, tasks don't become overwhelming. He also talks about keeping a journal to keep the ideas of your life in. He suggests keeping a calendar as well. In fact, his two rules are, "don't start the day until you have it finished" and "don't start the week until you have it finished." He then suggests to plan carefully who you associate with in order to make sure the right habits rub off on you. Rohn ends the book describing the most important goal behind all of your goals and that is happiness. Accomplishing all of your goals is only useful if striving for the goals makes you happy, not miserable.

    I remember saying to Mr. Shoaff, “If I had more money I’d be happy.” But he replied,“The key to happiness is not more. Happiness is an art to be studied and practiced.More money will only make you more of what you already are. More will only send you more quickly to your destination. So if you’re inclined to be unhappy, you’ll be luxuriously miserable with more money. If you’re inclined to be nasty, wealth will make you a terror.And if you’re inclined to drink a little too much, more money will I remember saying to Mr. Shoaff, “If I had more money I’d be happy.” But he replied,“The key to happiness is not more. Happiness is an art to be studied and practiced.More money will only make you more of what you already are. More will only send you more quickly to your destination. So if you’re inclined to be unhappy, you’ll be luxuriously miserable with more money. If you’re inclined to be nasty, wealth will make you a terror.And if you’re inclined to drink a little too much, more money will only enable you to waste yourself in booze. “On the other hand, if you master the art of lifestyle and happiness, more money will help you to amplify your happiness and inner wealth.” I chose to begin my review with this particular part of the book, because it simply wraps up why this book is so great.If you're searching for a book that merely tells you how to get rich, then this isn't the right book for you. This book simply tells us how to change ourselves so we can be wealthy from the inside and outside. It opens our eyes to the fact that nothing will be better unless YOU become better,for that change comes from the inside not from the outside. Mr. Rohn affirmed that "happiness is the joy that comes to those who painstakingly design their lives & live them with artistry" and that "success is the steady, measured progress toward a goal and the achievement of a goal". To be happy and successful (which is the dream of most of us as I imagine) you will need to learn the art of discipline. Discipline is the bridge between thought and accomplishment. You may not be able to do all you find out but be sure to find out all you can do. I consider this book as one of the best "Paradigm-shifting" books that you may ever come to read. The bottom line is and I quote: "To have more that you've got, become more than what you're. The most important thing is what you're become not what you're getting."

    One of the Best books I have read so far! The author takes us through his emotional 'Rags to Riches' Journey from earning a $57 weekly paycheck to having a 7 figure net worth. He deeply respects and gives the credit for his wealth and happiness to his mentor, Earl Shoaff. All the golden lessons he learnt while working for his leader have been printed in this book in a very digestible and stimulating format. I give 5/5 stars! One of the Best books I have read so far!

There was a few really good quotes, and like all books, I jotted those down. The one that really stood out was : "It's easy to remain mediocre. All you need to do is spend major time on minor things with minor people. That sentence is really powerful and I'm very thankful that I am able to surround myself with very smart and caring people. Jim also list several questions that you should ask yourself : 1) Why should you try? The best answer is "Why not?". What else are you going to do with your life? Why not see how far you can go? What not see how much you can earn, or read, or share? Why not see what you can become or how much you can grow? 2) Why not you? Some people have done the most incredible things with a limited background. Some people do so well that they get to see it all? Why not you? 3) Why not now? Why postpone a better future when so much that is wondrous awaits your command? Overall, I gave this book a 3 as "I like it", but would recommend that you check it out at a public library or pick it up from a used book section. There are some gems in here that are worth a couple of hours of reading it.

    I have heard Jim Rohn speak on audios many times but wanted to read his words as well. I really like his stories of his youth and mentor Mr. Shoaff. A wonderful book even with dated parts. The basic ideas still apply today. He left a wonderful legacy.

I read The 12 Pillars Of Success and thought it was really great, but this one was better, way better! It was like they just plugged a cord into his brain, and downloaded his essence. It was written just as he talks, his weird mannerisms and all. I even heard his funny Idahoan accent in my head as I read the book......... I don't really know if that's what they really call people from Idaho, so if anyone from Idaho reads this review I'm sorry, and comment on what people from Idaho are really called. Anywho, this book is just pure gold. Actually it's worth more than it's weight in gold! Now a lil warning, this book was written in the 80's. But other than mentioning home phones and how having a computer in your home will be so awesome the information in this book is evergreen! 💯 This book is so amazing I can't say enough about this book, or the great Jim Rohn (RIP). It's a book I will definitely go over again and again! Best $4.79 I ever spent (thriftbooks is the shit). And I highly recommend this book to anyone who is on a personal development journey like myself!

    Whenever I looked up quotes or motivational words, the name Jim Rohn always appeared. He seemed to have so many good things to say that I decided to check this book out from the library. It was an easy read, and I was able to finish it in one day, and gather pages of notes and wisdom from it. It was a good book, needless to say. I have had it on hold at the library for a while, and the tattered appearance it arrived in also let me know that it's high in demand.

I have had it on hold at the library for a while, and the tattered appearance it arrived in also let me know that it's high in demand. What I got from it was common sense reiterated, and messages of goal setting, discipline, and staying in control of your circumstances were consistent. Nothing groundbreaking or particularly innovative (and it was written in 1985, with a revision in 1996)...so despite the references to preserving your video tapes for your children, it was really still quite relevant and powerful. I've decided to share my notes with my girlfriends, because I believe that in the pages of this book anyone can find an answer, or at least encouragement to any rut they are in. Be it financial, career-based, social, or personal, there are enough tips, suggestions, and motivational "quotes" to have anyone walk away from this book feeling fulfilled. ~Stacey Marie Robinson

    The book has Smooth style and its easy to read. These strategies are not unknown but sometimes you need to hear it few times before you put it to practice. At the end Jim Rohn asks four questions: ▪ Why should you try all this? ▪ Why not? ▪ Why not you? ▪ Why not now? This kind of wrapped it up... So this is my assessment of the book 7 Strategies for Wealth & Happiness by Jim Rohn according to my 8 criteria: 1. Related to practice - 5 stars 2. It prevails important - 5 stars 3. I agree with the read - 5 The book has Smooth style and its easy to read. These strategies are not unknown but sometimes you need to hear it few times before you put it to practice.

In conclusion, remember this: The good life is not an amount; it’s an attitude, an act, an idea, a discovery, a search. The good life comes from a lifestyle that is fully developed, regardless of the size of your bank account; a lifestyle that provides you with a constant sense of joy in living; a lifestyle that fuels your desire to become a person of deep value and achievement. After all, what is wealth without character, industry without art, quantity without quality, enterprise without satisfaction, and possessions without joy? You can become a person of culture who adds to the whole culture. You can be that person of unusual substance who possesses the style and individuality of which our children and their children can become the beneficiaries. • "Formal education can make you a living, self education can make you a fortune" - Jim Rohn • Rohn's mentor Mr. Shoaff: "if you wish to be successful, study success.

    This book would have been very well received at the time of release (1985) but when I finished reading it today I only felt, I have read much better books. But still as Robin Sharma had once said: "Some books are meant to be tasted, some books are meant to be chewed and, finally, some books are meant to be swallowed whole". I will say this book is one I was happy enough to just taste. Still glad to learn a few new things though. A quick read.

    “Wealth and happiness don’t materialize out of nowhere – obtaining them requires careful discipline and planning.

    A great read for those looking for inspiration and how-to's on living well. The ideas shared in this book truly stand the test of time, although some of the stories and tips need to be updated to reflect current times. There's an analogy of balancing your checkbook on your portable computer being like driving to your next-door neighbor's house. Not a reason to not read or gain anything from, it, just be prepared for many of the examples being outdated by 20 years.

If you aren't abundant in your personal wellbeing and development, it won't transfer over to your financial wellbeing and development.

    It's a great book, some really good advices in there. The reason I give it 4 stars is because the material is a bit outdated and lots of the ideas in it had been used in other books. I also did not agree on the tax ideas described by the author. Still this book is written in different times from this days tax abuse and corrupted politicians. Maybe back then things were different. This written in the pre internet era, so understandably no time management apps or online communication advices are sh It's a great book, some really good advices in there.

    One of the better, if not the best, success books I've read. While small and approachable, Mr. Rohn does a great job breaking down the seven values and principles he believes are the foundation for true and lasting success in all of life's realms. This is not a "get rich quick" scheme, but rather an expose on integrity and character in regards to having the proper mindset on success. Read with an open mind and an open notebook. This is one book that will truly benefit anyone who reads it and app One of the better, if not the best, success books I've read.
