“Success” – Book Review

I just finished reading Success: The Five Major Pieces to the Life Puzzle by Jim Rohn.

I was surprised how similar the book was to my own philosophy.

Reading this book made me realize that I am definitely on the right path.

I believe that synchronicities are rarely coincidental.

The last few books I have read all left me with similar impressions.

Deep within ourselves, we know what our true callings are. Sometimes we may only have a vague idea of the direction we want to go in, and it is our duty to follow up on these urges. Disregard naysayers… disregard “failure”… disregard all attempts to box you in. Your future is determined by the accumulation of all your small choices. It is easy to fail… but it is also easy to win.

You must treat every small decision with the same care and precision as your major life choices. Your level of discipline ripples throughout your entire life. The erosion of one foundational pillar will cause the others to erode as well. We are defined by our habits. Your everyday decisions are the sculptors of your future.

Failure to maintain discipline causes us to doubt ourselves and lose self-esteem. When you stay true to your principles, you feel proud and confident. Giving in to temptations that you know are bad for your long term development will fill you with self-loathing. Never lose sight that you are the artist of your own lifestyle. The care that you put into your every move will be returned to you in the form of well-being.

You have to give to get.

If you seek the formula to success, you will find it… The real question is whether you will use it or not. How bad do you want to create the future that you have envisioned? Investing in your dreams/plans will present you with opportunities…


This book was extremely eye-opening for me because it confirmed many of the philosophical thoughts that I have accumulated over the past months. It is with great enthusiasm that I look forward to the future. I will put in my work while savoring the process. If I cannot enjoy my life now, I will never be able to. I wish everyone nothing but health, success, and happiness.

If you would like to find out more, check out Success: The Five Major Pieces to the Life Puzzle by Jim Rohn.

    Just wanted to say that your blog is a total inspiration, and has inspired me to construct one myself. Your perceptions and insights (both brutal and amusing) have altered the way I perceive my day to day existence.

    Thank you!

    “If I cannot be happy now, I will never be happy.” Very true. Keep on writing, man.

    One quote for you successful niggas out there:
    “Successful people make their decisions quickly and change their minds slowly. Failures make their decisions slowly and change their minds quickly.”
