Jim rohn: BREAK YOUR BAD HABITS (Jim Rohn motivation)

the diseases of attitude never that pleasant to talk about the negative but we got to talk about it because life is part negative these attitude diseases are like weeds that grow in the garden it’s a normal part of life here’s a good phrase to note negative is normal it’s not successful but it’s normal it’s part of life and here’s the next key in my opinion you must learn to handle the negative don’t ignore it handle it now I know some people keep the other way and listen to them and listen to me and then make up your own mind right don’t be a follower your students but I say you got to handle the negative you don’t have to live in it you don’t have to dwell on it but you do have to handle it my opinion I know some people teach just turn your head real quick and say there’s no way there’s no weight there’s no weak they’ll take your guard so you’ve got to handle the negative here’s what part of it is it’s called the great war between good and evil mr. Reynolds and I are working on a new book this year called the great war between good and evil and there is a war on the minute you were born you got involved in the war between good and evil between darkness and light between negative and poverty between evil and good between tyranny and democracy between weeds and human activity I mean the war is on if democracy fleet gets who never sleeps tyranny in the absence of light yes what’s automatic darkness if good does not arouse itself and become active guess what moves in evil it’s a war of mental war a physical war a financial war between enterprise and ease between accomplishment and failure it’s a war that’s why there’s an Old Testament phrase that gives the best advice for human activity when it says six days labor one day rest now I’m sure we’ve taken that to mean don’t work all seven days take one off here’s what it also means or only take one Oh or you’re liable to lose the war now we’ve got it down to five and two and maybe that’s not too dangerous I don’t know if God would have thought of five and two he might have made it five and two I don’t know you can’t think of everything but here’s what it does mean enterprise is better than ease if you rest too long the jungle overtakes the village now here’s the good news about the war between good and evil evil is no match for good but good must be active lead to no match for human activity but if you stand still how far in will they come all the way they’ll grow right up around your shoes but if you get busy how far back can you take them as far as you wish they’re no match but you must be active that’s why the six and one make sure you’re not losing the war by taking off to guess what the average years are after retirement six sit which means don’t retire your chances are too [Music] okay the war between good and evil the weeds you got to make sure you recognize the negative handle it deal with it and then go on let’s make a list of the diseases of attitude that can wreck all your chances to do with one of the words that destroys everything is called neglect neglect and I found this out a week of neglect could cost you a year of repair isn’t worth it so what to be on the lookout for here’s the list if you were making it you’d have the same list I’ve got like we’re not covering anything new tonight this is a reminding session not a teaching session but it doesn’t hurt to go over it again here’s the list attitude diseases number one is indifference the shrug of the shoulders the guy’s not even concerned he’s just drifting this is called the mild approach to life a disease known as mildness the guy says well I can’t see getting all that worked up well to be any kind of winner you got to get work there’s one problem with drift you cannot drift to the top of the mountain and the good Lord said in the closing chapters of the Bible here’s the best way to live one way or the other that’s bad Hazor what’s next back cold is next best the heart not the half-baked middle lukewarm not too hot not too cold what a sad way to live I think what it means is pick a direction and go with everything you’ve got just pick one and go somebody says yeah but what if it’s the wrong direction you’ll find out quicker it won’t take you 25 years to wake up and say oh no I’ve been walk-in the wrong road I told my staff the other day next Vista prosperity is adversity if one doesn’t get you pray for the other we all do better for one of two reasons inspiration or desperation and I don’t wish anything bad on you tonight but if you’re not inspired I hope a wagon comes down your rut whatever it takes to get you to try harder read more set your goals and go for it somebody asked me one time what quality would I pick if I wanted to work with somebody and you know what I picked first number one strong feeling please number one give me somebody that feel strong about most anything I don’t even care just so they believed it even if they disagree with me wonderful just so they disagreed vigorously I’m not saying it’s easy to win those kind of people to your point of view but I’d rather do that than to try to resurrect people from the dead pump them up every month from tomorrow pump them up I pass the good Lord needs a leader for the early Christian remember the early days of the Christian not like today if you were to stand up in the early days and say I’m a Christian cut off your head toss you and your wife in jail let you rot I mean those were ugly day being a Christian back then was not called socially acceptable they didn’t have a hundred and twenty five thousand in the Los Angeles Coliseum to hear Billy Graham on a Sunday afternoon not back in those days back in those days when the Christians got in the Coliseum it was a different story hey I mean the word rusts stay out of the Colosseum especially on Sunday last Sunday was Lions 33 Christians not saying see those were mean tough struggle days for the Christian now when the days are mean and toughen struggling you got to have some kind of leader do you know what the good Lord picked for the leader when the days were mean and ugly Oh from Tarsus that’s we think Saul I’ll tell you what I woulda picked him you woulda 15 anybody would have picked Saul Saul was one of those incredible guys once he got into something look out everybody in the community knew what Saul was in because whatever he joined you flip all the switches open if all the dials turn on all the foxes can go like mad he was known as all out Saul I mean he was something else now at first it wasn’t working out well Saul hated Christians which makes a poor leader right I mean that will work Sall got this blog summary about the Christians he got the hate and Christian and he hated him so bad every time somebody would say Christian he’d fly into a rage and I guess he decided one life or one day it was his mission in life to get rid of all the Christians he was fallen he how could do most anything he wanted to so he got in these letters of authority to go around to the various communities and hunt down the Christians they could do whatever you want to with them salt or unpopular anyhow drag him in the street with him stone of torture and kill him you mentioned the name Saul from Tarsus to the early Christians I’ll tell you what they would do they would run hide lock the doors leave town dive underground I’ve been in the catacomb of room where they hid he was me I mean terribly mean but remember the story one day Saul’s making it for Damascus heard about some new Christians flies into a rage takes off for Damascus and the stories that he was angry there’s a lot of sentence in the story that says on his way to Damascus he was breathing out threatenings and slaughter which meant he felt rather strong about the idea right that’s strong that’s strong but on this journey right according to the story as Saul was making his way to Damascus the good Lord looks down out of heaven and says there’s my man Saul he’s got to be something else and according to the story this great light shines out of heaven nock seemed flat right off his horse grinds his face in the dirt and blinds him for three days the good Lord using recruiting tools we can’t use this when your lord right to make a long story short Saul from Tarsus becomes converted to Christianity he becomes Paul the great leader the Apostle and without a doubt the good Lord got him a dandy one he didn’t have to pump up every book in one of his later writings he said the things I once hated I now love the things I once loved I now hate see that strong here’s the key to the good life learn to put everything you’ve got into everything you do whatever you are doing pull it on it will quickly open up into opportunity or quickly disclose to you that you ought to be doing something else the delusion is if I had a better job I’d really pour it on that’s delusion wherever you are pour it on don’t give somebody Papa job for a day’s pay pour it on see that’ll help change your life get rid of this disease here’s the next attitude disease indecision mental paralysis the guy can’t make up his mind and it becomes a disease pretty soon he knows he’s got it the guy says well I know I’m on the fence but he says what if I get off on the wrong side listen after a while it doesn’t matter just get all any side we’ll do a life full of adventure is a life full of many decisions the ones that turn out to be wrong give you better experience to make better decision so don’t see how many decisions you can get out of see how many you can get into that’s where the adventure is so shake off this disease indecision the next one is doubt doubts like a plague and one of the worst is self-doubt there are many but that’s one of the words the guide doubt them cell doctors it’ll last that long for him doubts if he can do that well doubts if he can make that much doubts if he can accomplish all that a chronic excellent self doubter you can imagine what damage that does to your future so here’s the key turn this coin over and become a believer and there’s many things to believe in one of the majors is your cell the understanding of self-worth is the beginning of progress now if those three don’t get you this one will worry that’s a devastating disease worry worry causes health problems social problems personal problems family problems it’s devastating worry long enough it’ll drop you to your knees could reduce you to begging I know how bad this one is I used to have it bad I used to be known as a super worrier not a super warrior no super warrior my family we should have been a warrior I got those years to make up for but I’ll tell you what my advice to you is do what I finally did on worry give it up who needs it I’m not saying it’s easy I’m saying it’s worth it it took me almost one year to kick the worried habit and it was not an easy year it was one of the toughest years I ever spent but I finally got that monkey off my back and I discovered you could live the most incredible life free of worry not pre-challenge not free of difficulty free of worry I learned how to do it and you can here’s the next attitude disease over caution some people never will have much they’re too cautious now you can also be too reckless but you can also be too cautious this is called the timid approach to life and my caution was always the risk risk is to drive me right up the wall I used to say what if this happens it’s called the language of the poor what if this happens and on top of that if this was to happen look at the fix I be and I better not try I could always ace my self out then I’ll tell you what changed my whole life when I finally discovered it’s all risky the minute you were born it’s got risky if you think trying is risky wait till they hand you the bill for not trying if you think investing is risky wait till you get the tab we’re not investing see it’s all risky get married is risky having children is risky going into business is risky investing your money is risky it’s all risky I’ll tell you how risky life is you’re not going to get out alive that’s risky the Englishman says well if that’s the way it’s going to work out let’s give it a go right that’s what it’s for give it a go somebody says yeah but I’m looking for safety and security fine then huddle in a corner we’ll cover you with a sheet bring you three meals a day and we’ll protect you feed you look after you care for you we won’t let anything happen to you and you’ll probably live to be 100 the guy simply I’d live to be 100 but what a way to live right what a way to live safe and secure don’t ask for security ask for adventure better to live 30 years full of adventure than 100 years safe in the corners and see it’s not important how long you live what’s important is how you live here’s the next attitude disease we’re almost through with this monthly list in fact we’re almost through hang on the next one is pessimism pessimism the deadly disease of always looking on the bad side the problem side the difficult side checking all the reasons why can’t be done the poor pessimist leads an ugly life he doesn’t try to figure out what’s right he tries to figure out what’s wrong he doesn’t look for virtue he looks for fault and when he finds him he’s delighted how this is the poor guy looks through the window doesn’t see the sunset he sees the specks on the wind and this is the poor guy right who rushes up take such leave of his senses this guy rushes up and he says I’ve got 5 good reasons why it won’t work he’s so dumb he doesn’t know all he needs one you’ve got five to the pessimist the glass is always half-empty to the optimist the glass is half-full why would the same measure affect people two different ways answer it all depends on how you look at it our lives are mostly affected by the way we think things are not the way they are the way we think they are affects us knows there’s a subject we don’t have time to get into tonight called better thinking habit one of the major things Shope taught me when I met him he said poor thinking habits keeps most people poor and not poor working habits most people work hard but they don’t think hard and show taught me that the mind is like a factory our mental Factory and whatever you think about all day long pours ingredients into this mental Factory and that’s what builds the economic social financial fabric of your life he quoted me a Bible phrase that says as you think so you become how awesome when he talked about poor thinking habit he had me I used to start today reading the morning newspaper I mean you can leave that or not I’d get a cup of coffee and read the paper I’d load up on Wars and riots and murders and stabbings and killings and bank robberies and muggings and car wrecks and tragedies I’d even read the back pages I seem to like that stuff for some weird reason I’d let up on all that and then I start today you can imagine the kind of days that you have you walk around on your financial needs they call you economic pee-wee the guy says I want to be a great leader wonderful the first thing we do is following to his house when we get there we walk in and check his library number one somebody says well why check his library the reason is because what a man reads pours massive ingredients into his mental factory and the fabric of his life is built from those ingredients you would not believe what some people have got in their house to read you would not believe one of the best tests of words I know for a lot of it is trash can you imagine dumping a barrel of trash into this mental factory every day and coming out with a rich dynamic positive life it can’t be done you might as well try making a cake with submit [Music] the kids back in Danbury Connecticut high school they’re asking me questions one day I’m talking to the kids kids got good questions these days one of them said to me mr. Owen how do you build the good life I said it’s simple it’s not easy but it’s simple here’s how you build anything select the right ingredient keep out the wrong ingredients and it starts with thought everything starts with thought so you must be Y and careful what you think about because that starts everything you got to be Y and careful I asked the kids what would happen if somebody dropped sugar in my coffee they said we should be okay I said what if somebody dropped strychnine in my coffee they said well you’d be dead I said correct lesson 1 life is both sugar and strychnine you got to be careful I said what is my worst enemy drops in the sugar they said would you be ok I said what if my best friend even by accident drops in the strychnine they said well you’d be dead I said correct lesson 2 watch your call you got to be careful see it doesn’t matter who hands you the bad stuff it doesn’t matter where you get the bad stuff it’ll still do its damage on your bank account wherever you get it mr. shelf gave me one of the greatest phrases when I first met him when he said Jim every day stand guard at the door of your mind how important stand guard at the door of your mind and you decide what goes into your mental factory don’t let anybody just dump anything they want to in your mental factory because you’ve got to live with the result okay here’s the last disease and we’re through with this list fact we’re almost through hang on the last subject is very brief the last disease but this one is deadly engage in this one indulge in it even slightly and you might as well forget the future because it’s going to forget you complaining crying crying griping a Bible word called murmuring see that will ace your future spend five minutes complaining and you have wasted five and you may have begun what’s known as economic cancer of the bone surely they will soon haul you off into a financial desert and there let you choke on the dust of your own regret I hope I said that well so you won’t forget it’s a deadly disease if you don’t think it’s bad ask the children of Israel of Old Testament thing typical of us all their story just happened to get in the book story says children of Israel were slaves God performed a series of dazzling miracles and got them out and now they’re heading for the promised land remember the story heading for the Promised Land tragedy of the story they never got big reason from day one they started to complain they griped about the water they Greist about the weather they find and cried and griped about the food they griped about the leadership they find and cried because it was too far too cold too hot too difficult too miserable I mean they widened complained and cried for years finally God said I’ve had it took canceled or something like that the story says they died in the desert members got to the promo which i think means two things indulging this long enough to get your future tail and I guess it also means even God Himself can only take so much okay just be on the lookout of the things that can destroy all the good you start the war is on and this evening tomorrow mentally personally socially economically you got to make sure you’re winning the war and this is part of it [Music] you
