I love reading in my spare time, especially books that are about personal development, entrepreneurship, self-improvement and philosophy. Among one of my favorites is “7 Strategies for Wealth and Happiness: Power Ideas from America’s Foremost Business Philosopher” by personal development legend Jim Rohn. Jim’s writings and teachings have definitely had a positive impact on me since his insights and ideals have reached me halfway across the world in Australia!


Jim believes that we don’t have to sacrifice time with family or friends to become successful or to gain professional prestige — we just have to have the right plan that works for each one of us because everyone is different. Published in 1985, this book provides a rough outline of that plan, and encourages you to delve deeply into your goals and aspirations to shape your future for the better. Jim’s plan covers the following topics:

  • Unleashing the power of your inner goals
  • Seeking advanced knowledge, whether it’s financial, personal or professional
  • Learning how to change for the better
  • Controlling your finances
  • Mastering time
  • Surrounding yourself with winners, instead of losers
  • Learning the art of living well

Doesn’t this all sound amazing? These teachings were definitely life-changing for me, and I want them to be life changing for you as well. I’m so excited to share information about this book with you on my blog, and I’m even more excited that Jim’s audiobook is available for free on YouTube here! Although the audiobook is quite long (it’s five hours!) you can easily listen to it while you’re traveling to work or preparing dinner.

Are you still not convinced why you should take the time to listen to this audiobook? See below for a few reviews straight from the listeners themselves…

  • “Amazing. Simply amazing work that changed me from a punk millennial to a top realtor and soon investor. Change your thoughts, change your world.”
  • “He was really powerful! Just his voice motivates me to do, to be and to accomplish great things in life.”
  • “Having these audio sessions on YouTube is truly a service to the people searching for improvement in their lives. Jim Rohn is an amazing speaker with a revolutionary commitment to self improvement. He is a role model, thank you for sharing,”

According to the audiobook, the narrator explains that “the key to a great future is within you, and we have to do is use the right combination of skills and knowledge,” and he’s absolutely right, in fact, the first review is an example of that. The true lesson here is that we all have the potential to create great futures for ourselves — we just have to learn about the proper ways to do so and the proper ways to implement it.

Now, are you ready to create a personalized strategy that will provide you with wealth and happiness? If so, I recommend listening to Jim’s audiobook or picking up a hardcopy of the book today.
