The Art of Exceptional Living - Jim Rohn
By Josh Kaufman
If you’re interested in the Personal MBA, chances are you won’t be satisfied with living an ordinary life – you want to become extraordinary. In the The Art of Exceptional Living, Jim Rohn discusses the critical importance of establishing a personal philosophy and daily habits to create the life you want.
At the age of 25, Rohn found himself drowning in debt and obligations, with seemingly little opportunity to improve his situation. With the help of a mentor, Rohn realized that the real source of his problems wasn’t his environment – it was how he chose to think about the world and his present circumstances.
Six years later, Rohn had eliminated his debt and increased his net worth to $1 million. In The Art of Exceptional Living, he discusses how he was able to make such a dramatic transformation, and how a few simple habits can put you on the path to success, however you define it.
Chief among the habits Rohn recommends is building a comprehensive personal library that covers a wide array of topics: sales, history, philosophy, accounting, finance, and law. If you’re interested in quickly building your own library, you’re in luck: the Personal MBA is the best place to start.
