Quotes by Jim Rohn on Financial Independence
- “I remember saying to my mentor, “If I had more money, I would have a better plan.” He quickly responded, “I would suggest that if you had a better plan, you would have more money.” You see, it’s not the amount that counts; it’s the plan that counts.”
- “It is better to be a lender than a spender.”
- “To become financially independent you must turn part of your income into capital; turn capital into enterprise; turn enterprise into profit; turn profit into investment; and turn investment into financial independence.”
- “Financial independence is the ability to live from the income of your own personal resources.”
- “If you were to show me your current financial plan, would I get so excited by it that I would go across the country and lecture on it? If the answer is no, then here’s my question: “Why not”? Why wouldn’t you have a superior financial plan that is taking you to the places you want to go?”
- “Shortly after I met my mentor he asked me, “Mr. Rohn, how much money have you saved and invested over the last six years?” And I said, “None.” He then asked, “Who sold you on that plan?”"
- “The philosophy of the rich versus the poor is this: The rich invest their money and spend what is left; the poor spend their money and invest what is left.”
- “I used to say, “Things cost too much.” Then my teacher straightened me out on that by saying, “The problem isn’t that things cost too much. The problem is that you can’t afford it.” That’s when I finally understood that the problem wasn’t “it” – the problem was “me”.”
- “The Bible says that it is hard for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven. It doesn’t say that it is impossible!”
