If you are not willing to risk the usual, you will have to settle for the ordinary. – Jim Rohn
I think there comes a point in everyone’s life that we realize that if we are to take hold of a better future, we must first let go of our comfortable past – what we know, where our safe spot is an 100% in our comfort zone.
Buying or selling a home can feel a lot like that, because our homes are one of the most personal things we will ever own. Very often it is a representation of who we are (for sellers) or will be (for buyers, especially after you put you own personal touches to the property). The vast majority of homeowners will own more than one home, and the typically starter home, should you want to benefit from the equity and not lose money on your investment, is about a 3 – 5 year investment. Whether buying or selling, there comes a time where you must risk what we know, if we want to move on to greener pastures.
Jim Rohn’s quote, not unlike his other quotes, pushes us to think about our life, our decisions and ultimately our life goals.
For more than 40 years, Jim Rohn honed his craft like a skilled artist—helping people the world over sculpt life strategies that expanded their imagination of what is possible. Those who had the privilege of hearing him speak can attest to the elegance and common sense of his material. It is no coincidence, then, that he is still widely regarded as one of the most influential thinkers of our time, and thought of by many as a national treasure. He authored countless books and audio and video programs, and helped motivate and shape an entire generation of personal-development trainers and hundreds of executives from America’s top corporations.
Born to an Idaho farming family in the mid-1900s, Jim was ingrained with a work ethic that served him well throughout his life. At 25, he met his mentor Earl Shoaff. And over the next six years he made his first fortune, yet didn’t get into speaking until he moved to Beverly Hills, Calif., when a friend at the Rotary Club asked him to tell his success story, which Rohn titled “Idaho Farm Boy Makes It to Beverly Hills.” His speech went over so well that he received more invitations to share it, and better yet, they started paying him for it. In the beginning, he spoke in front of college and high-school classes and at service clubs, before moving on to seminars in 1963, which launched him into the personal-development business. From then on, he became a trailblazer in the self-help/personal-development industry, impacting the lives of millions through his life-changing material.
