7 Important Lessons I Learned From Jim Rohn’s Book: The Seasons of Life

Published

on

Jim Rohn’s book, The Seasons of Life, is a marvelous book for individuals going through difficulties. The book enlightens readers that seasons often change, therefore, difficult times won’t last forever.

In the book, Jim Rohn reminds us that life happens in seasons, and there is a way to utilize every season effectively.

I read the book, and I loved it because, besides knowing about the seasons of life, I learned various valuable lessons that I would like to share with you.

Here are they: –

  1. Avoid Negative People

Negative people are like poison. They can weaken your faith in your dreams by instilling negative opinions in your mind and reminding you your old fears.

For this reason, avoid negative individuals at all costs. It doesn’t matter if they are your friends, relatives, or business associates. Just avoid them, or they will kill your dreams.

  1. God Did Not Bring Us Here to Live in Poverty

The Power that gave us life did not intend us to fail or dwell in poverty, or mediocrity. This Power blessed us with everything we need for our progress. For instance, it blessed us with an intellectual capacity that has no limitations.

Therefore, never settle for less, always do your best and expect the best.

  1. Your Attitude Determines Who You Are.

Your attitude determines your character because it has a great influence on your faith, self-confidence, and zeal. For this reason, you must have a positive attitude towards everything.

  1. Each Day Gives You A Chance to Create a Better Future

The thoughts, effort, actions, and dreams we have today shape tomorrow, and avoiding to exploit the opportunity this day offers ensures that we delay a better future.

That being so, don’t wait for tomorrow to start, and don’t use today to think about the past. Instead, use today to wisely build a better tomorrow.

  1. You Can Change Your Circumstances

You can alter your circumstances if you alter your thoughts, beliefs, attitude, residence, occupation, and friends.

You can completely change your life if you read self-development books in your free time. Besides this, your circumstances will also change if you invest your abilities in a worthy occupation, and your thoughts in pursuing your life’s purpose.

  1. Think About the Things That Will Happen If You Don’t Work Hard

To make yourself work harder, you must take time and visualize what will happen when you don’t work hard.

Visualize your children or loved ones not enjoying their lives just because you never worked hard. Think about the banks coming after you just because you failed to pay your loans. Just think about all types of bad things that might happen because you never decided to push yourself harder.

      7.Things to do When Facing Hardships

    • Be thankful for your difficulties because they are a form of blessing.
    • Create unique plans for helping the less fortunate.
    • Discover who you are, and what you came here to do.
    • Develop your people’s skills.
    • Learn to master your emotions.
    • Develop the skills that will make your dreams come true.
    • Develop your spiritual values.
    • Read inspiring books.

The Vegetable Man, the Animal Man, and the Natural Man: The Ancient Secret Wisdom of the Kabbalah

The Vegetable Man, the Animal Man, and the Natural Man: The Ancient Secret Wisdom of the Kabbalah

The Kabbalah was a school of thought – in Jewish mysticism – that wanted its members to achieve oneness with the Creator. As well, it encouraged members to discover their full potential and live a fulfilling life. However, it was hidden from the public, and only a few individuals understood its teachings.

For this reason, great authors, for example, Shimon Halevi, have tried to simplify the Kabbalah so that we understand its secret esoteric teachings. In his book, The Way to Kabbalah, Shimon explains the Kabbalah’s teachings in a simple way.

Although the book has several teachings, I loved the teachings about the vegetable man, the animal man, and the natural man, and something forced me to share them with you.

The vegetable man, as Shimon puts it, ‘is any individual that aims at living a secure and regular life with minimal disturbance from outer and inner worlds.’ He dwells at the vegetable level of existence since he is mainly concerned with excreting, reproducing, eating, resting, and breathing. This man chooses the safest path and avoids risky paths because he yearns for security. For this reason, he will die in the city he was born, and he will adhere to his parents’ life plan.

On the other hand, the animal man is an evolved being. He has strong willpower and loves shaking the world with amazing discoveries. Just like an animal that wants something, the animal man will ignore pain so that he achieves his objectives. Moreover, he possesses high levels of perseverance and determination, and as Shimon writes, ‘he has an objective beyond comfort and pleasure.’  This man creates empires and uses his dreams to change the world.

Both the animal and vegetable man have big dreams. The main difference between them is that the animal man fights for his dreams, while the vegetable man chooses security over going through the risky and competitive path of dream chasing.

The natural man possesses the powers of the animal and the vegetable man. He is a powerful being, for he has power over both living and non-living things. Shimon refers to him as ‘The Spearhead of organic life.’ This man knows that he creates his own reality, and understands that the Spirit of God dwelleth in him.

Human beings are destined to be natural men. We were created to rule the earth and gain dominion over everything. Also, we were put here to develop our spiritual, physical, and mental powers to their full potential so that we become gods on this planet.

However, most people act like vegetable men. Although they want to develop into animal and natural men, they are afraid of the narrow path that leads to these states of being. They thus prefer a normal and less risky life. Eventually, they die wishing they worked on evolving into the animal and natural man because they realize that a normal life is a boring and an unfulfilling life.

PEACE BE WITH YOU

The Secret History of the Illuminati

The Secret History of the Illuminati

‘It should be understood that the doctrines and philosophies expounded by the Illuminati predate it by millennia. These traditions and beliefs can be traced back through the Freemasons, Rosicrucians, Knights Templars, Mystery Schools of Greece and Egypt, to ancient Sumer and their accounts of the possibly extraterrestrial Annunaki (Jim Marr; Illuminati: The Secret Society That Hijacked the World).’

Recently, I posted a book review of Jim Marr’s book: Illuminati; The Secret Society that Hijacked the World. Today, I’ll share with you Jim Marr’s amazing thoughts on the history of the Illuminati.

According to Jim Marr, the Illuminati stole its secret knowledge from ancient secret societies. These secret societies stole this secret knowledge from an advanced ancient civilization known as Sumer, which received the knowledge from extraterrestrial beings known as The Annunaki.

These secret societies were not evil associations. They all believed in God, and they claimed to understand the hidden mysteries of the world. Besides, they referred to themselves as ‘The Chosen Ones’ since they believed they were the keepers of hidden spiritual knowledge. However, they hated the church because they believed they didn’t need anyone to interpret the word of God for them.

These secret societies led to the founding of the Illuminati in 1776 by Adam Weishaupt, a student of ancient knowledge, and an admirer of ancient secret societies. Weishaupt formed the Illuminati because he wanted to use it to promote justice and equality.

He then focused on recruiting the youth: particularly professionals and individuals from wealthy families.

Later, the Illuminati attracted the interest of high-level society members – such as scientists, authors, bankers, politicians, and philosophers- who then changed its goals and used it to establish control over the masses. The Illuminati was then banned in 1785, and Adam Weishaupt was forced into exile. However, despite being banned, the Illuminati continued existing under different forms and names.

Today, it controls the world’s political, economic, religious, and social affairs. Some whistleblowers claim that the Illuminati is engineering diseases and creating wars to reduce the world’s population. On top of that, several conspiracy theorists believe the Illuminati is currently conducting moon landings and secret space flights.

Anyway, some people believe famous musicians, politicians, writers, and investors are the primary members of The Illuminati, while others claim that the main members are extraterrestrials who also rule other planets.

It’s difficult to know who exactly the Illuminati is, and its specific aims. However, what we surely know is that A RULING CLASS that controls the masses exists, for as Albert Einstein wrote, ‘the ruling class at present, has the schools and press, usually the Church as well, under its thumb. This enables it to organize and sway the emotions of the masses, and make its tool of them (Jim Marr, The Secret Society That Hijacked the World).’

Peace Be With You
