When I was about 14 years old my Dad had purchased an extra ticket to an event that was being put on by Brian Tracy and Jim Rohn.
I had never heard of these guys before but I have always loved to learn so I came with him.
The event was chalk full of business strategies, success philosophy and a few bits of humor. I actually really enjoyed it…at least until there was a bit of conflict.
When Jim Rohn got to the section about saving and investing he mentioned that you need to save at least ten percent. There came some chatter and some hands went up.
Out of a crowd of 700 people or so Jim started calling on some of these hands. One of the guys said, “well I keep all my money in my business”, Jim refuted that idea quickly. Another said “what if you can’t afford to save ten percent…”
After this question Jim paused, scanned the room, and then looked right at me.
My stomach dropped and my palms instantly got clammy. (Can you see the panic in my eyes below, ha ha)
Watch this short video to see what Jim said after that:
Hope you enjoy it and I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
Remember — It’s Your Time…
