The Splendor of a King

Words of Wisdom - Vitamins for the Mind by Jim Rohn

Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
We must learn to apply all that we know so that we can attract all that we want.
Learning is the beginning of wealth. Learning is the beginning of health. Learning is the beginning of spirituality. Searching and learning is where the miracle process all begins.
If someone is going down the wrong road, he doesn’t need motivation to speed him up. What he needs is education to turn him around.
Don’t see the mind for more than it is, but don’t misread it for all that it can be.
Sharpen your interest in two major subjects: life and people. You will only gather information from a source if you are interested in it.
Education must precede motivation.
While you are in school, make sure you get the information. What you think about it, that’s up to you. What you are going to do with it that will soon be up to you. But while you are there, make sure you get it. In fact, my advice is, don’t leave school without it!
Never begrudge the money you spend on your own education.
If you step up the self-education curve, you will come up with more answers than you can use.
