I have been privileged enough to be in attendance at some of the major seminars of the world 鈥檚 best motivational speakers. Among those the legendary Jim Rohn (one of the founding fathers of self improvement) spoke at a particular event where Jim made reference to how much a quality empty book cost him. Jim Rohn then asked how much would you pay for an empty book and the answer to the question was $26.00. He was an avid collector of inspirational and motivational quotes. However every inspiring quote had to be worth at least $26.00 to be worthy of an entry into one of his empty books. For over 40 years Jim collected many thousands of 鈥榯 houghts of the day, 鈥?which were inspired quotes. He was one of the greatest legends in personal development and truly an icon. Apart from the various quotes he discovered from other people he also wrote many of his own special gems. Numerous empty books were filled with the priceless inspirational sayings and in time he practically filled his own library. Jim Rohn was probably the greatest collector of motivational quotes the world has ever known. His collection of empty books with all those inspiring messages must be worth an absolute fortune now. You would be proud and feel rich in mind and thought just by walking by that wonderful collection of inspirational words. It is always reassuring to hear some positive motivational words being spoken. Likewise it 鈥檚 great to read the words of somebody who has written something with obvious passion and deep feeling. There are times when we are down or having a bad day and then we read some inspirational words that encourage us to go on and have a better day. We were inspired by the words that built a bridge for us to cross over. Personally I love inspirational quotes and I like to write many of my own. I 鈥檝 e certainly written hundreds of 鈥榮 pecial quotes 鈥?over the last few years. I known from positive feedback that I have received, that people have often been inspired. The words have helped make someone 鈥檚 day better. It 鈥檚 a good feeling to know that you are potentially affecting peoples mental health in a constructive way. Self Improvement is a great leveller in our lives so ensure to gain great benefit from what it can do for you. There are so many excellent aspects. Start the self awareness journey and it will lead you on a better path. Have a superb day Martin Jeszke Ps/ Some recent quotes of mine: 1.
