Why Hope Isn’t Enough for Success

Got a good idea? It’s not enough to hope for it, says Jim Rohn. You’ve got to go out and search for a way to make it reality.

“Ideas are not reserved for those that hope; they’re not reserved for those that wish; they’re not reserved for those that complain,” Rohn says. “Good ideas are reserved for those that search.”

What’s the first step in your search?

Remember that nothing is impossible—just ask Jim Rohn.

The Story behind the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Over the summer, people from more than 100 countries poured buckets of ice water over their heads in an effort to bring attention to ALS, a neurological disorder characterized by nerve degeneration, paralysis, and eventually death. In this video, Nancy Frates tells the story of her 29-year-old son, Pete, the man behind the movement that has raised $125 million to support the search for a cure.

As a deeply positive person, Pete chose to see his ALS diagnosis as an opportunity instead of an obstacle. 

“[Pete] said, ‘There will be no wallowing, people,’ ” his mother says. “He goes, ‘We’re not looking back; we’re looking forward. What an amazing opportunity we have to change the world.’ ”

Why Nothing Is Impossible

When Orville and Wilbur Wright decided that man could fly, most of their peers wrote the idea off as impossible. It was by enlisting the help of a few that they were able to achieve their goal. After all, "extraordinary things are possible" with the help of others, says the late Jim Rohn.

“If two or three agree on a common purpose, nothing is impossible,” Rohn says.

What impossible goal are you working toward? Now get out there and find a few like-minded souls to help you achieve it.
