Jim Rohn: The Mindset And Attitude Of Thinking Wealthy

I am active in a Biblical Theology on Facebook. Most of the people in it are very passionate, opinionated and outliers. Some are doctrinally sound and others far out.

In response to some outlandish replies regarding this Jim Rohn video, one of the finest, grounded and best motivational speakers of the 20th century, very much in line with Zig Ziglar, and who was until his death a Christian, the best I can tell and you may gather from listening yourself.

I wanted to share my reply to this post and others replies about him be ‘new age’ and degrading almost anything and everything that isnt a scripture, which most dont agree on core fundamentals regardless. So here it is:

There are a lot of people in this group would benefit from heading the advice in this quote by Jim Rohn and content in the video…you know, the Bible is divine, holy and awesome and my favorite book that I read most everyday, however its not the only place to learn and find wisdom.

There are many laws that work only when applied and many secular people are using them for gain and many of you just want to argue about the same old stuff, which much of which is important, but only when applied. Like the parable of the talents.

Go out and do something amazing in the world. Its the only place we got right now.

If this post fits, wear it.
If it doesn’t, don’t.

And Kevin, Think and Grow Rich is a fine book. Its not the Gospel but there are a lot of good ideas in there we can use for His glory and our benefit. I personally like Laws of Success better by the same author, Napoleon Hill.

Bottom line;
take the best…leave the rest.

Go out in the world and be awe-some because God is awe-all.

5 C’s of an effective plan

An effective plan needs 5 C’s

  1. CLEAR – It needs to be clear. The objectives, responsibilities, roles and goals need to be clearly identified.
  2. CONCISE – Don’t pontificate too much. Make it simple as possible. Try to get it written to fit on one page. Direct and focused!
  3. COMPELLING – It needs to be exciting and connect to your WHY, your great purpose then you will always be motivated.
  4. CONSISTENT – Repetition and steadiness win the battle. Just let water sit overnight and it can soften a lot of hard stuff because it is consistent. Stead and consistent behaviour creates habit. Make them good ones.
  5. COMMITTED – Any significant endeavor requires unwavering commitment

We ALL are rich

Life is not fair. We ALL have our burdens.

Yet, we ALL are rich and blessed in this beautiful mess we call life. Rich and blessed beyond measure.

Think about this before you complain.

How much is a working eye worth? How about two eyes? If you were blind, how much would you pay for your vision? A hundred thousand? Hundred million? Hundred billion if could beg, borrow or whatever?

How much is your nose and smell worth?

How about taste?

Teeth to chew and smile with?

Ears to hear and listen?

How about your heart to pump a few million times?

And to feel all kinds of exilarating emotions?

What your lungs to breath?

All your other organs?

How about your left and right arms, hands, fingers? And thumbs plus finger nails?

Your legs, feet and toes, both of them too?

And dont forget your brain. Earth’s most complex organism which will never be topped by any computer for all that it does in like 7lbs. How much is that worth?

And your hair, well some of you?

I think that adds up a couple trillion maybe more. And what if you applied all that in uninson? What if God blessed all that. What could you do, create and contrive in value?

Then add the value of your soul that is built for eternity?

What about all the relationships and connecting with the Creator of the Universe for forever?

That is A LOT x MORE.

What treasue in earthen vessels.

That is an infinate value and wealth IF we exercise our senses and soul. If we love God and others with ALL of our heart, soul, mind, and strength that would be amazing and mind blowing.

Ponder that!

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;- Isaiah 5:20-21


Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!

Isaiah 5:20-21

Friends, Satan and his minions have been duping people since the beginning of time. Literally the beginning; remember Eve and the fruit with Adam apparently there doing nothing to stop it?

Its never stopped. If it wasn’t for the Helper, the wheels would have come off long ago.

Thankfully, God is more than able to overcome all these lies, duplicity, arrogant pride and downright evil. When its dark, the light shines even brighter as does God’s glory.

If you look at today’s and yesterday’s current event with the revelation lens of this passage, it explains a lot.

The majority of the founders were well acquainted with God’s Word and saw the world with this perspective. More importantly, they were also men of action. They of course were not perfect but had the desire and will to make it better. They were indeed inspired men of God who promoted liberty, the pursuit of happiness while revering the Creator.

When people lose sight of God, bad things, evil things happen all the more. Thats a fact so what are we going to do about it?
