On February 6th, friends and personal development legends gathered in Anaheim, Calif. to celebrate the life and legacy of Jim Rohn, renowned leader and foremost business philosopher, who passed away in December 2009. The event was attended by more than 1,300 people whose lives have been impacted by the wisdom of Jim Rohn.
Hosted by Darren Hardy, publisher of SUCCESS magazine and author of Design Your Best Year Ever, SUCCESS magazine and Jim Rohn International, the evening commemorated the life and lessons of a master motivator, father, friend, colleague, teacher and mentor. Invited speakers and guests, imparting their thoughts and insights on Rohn's most powerful success principles and personal influence, included Stuart Johnson, owner and CEO of Jim Rohn International, SUCCESS Media and VideoPlus, and internationally recognized speakers Les Brown, author of Live Your Dreams, Anthony Robbins, author of Awaken the Giant Within, Brian Tracy and Dr. Denis Waitley, author of Seeds of Greatness.
"I have a strong commitment to the next generation of personal achievers – and to Jim – in keeping his teachings and philosophies alive," said Stuart Johnson. "I was humbled and honored to provide the platform for those whose lives he impacted to be able to gather and celebrate his legacy. I know that I, personally, will forever benefit from the wisdom of this remarkable man."
Jim Rohn focused on the fundamentals of human behavior that most affect personal and business performance, reaching over 5 million people around the world through seminars, books, articles and CDs. Rohn set the standard to which those who seek to teach and inspire others are compared.
"Nothing like this has ever been done before in the personal development industry," said Brian Tracy, internationally recognized speaker and author of Psychology of Achievement. "Continuing to spread Jim's teachings is the best way to honor a life dedicated to mentoring others."
