Commentary On The 10 Core Commitments


 “Income doesn’t far exceed Personal Development.”

Jim Rohn


10  Core Commitments to Success:

Success is found on a daily basis first.

Completing each practical assignment successfully is the most obvious step toward success.

Being an author, an entrepreneur and a millionaire who had started from scratch,
 Rohn was determined to assist people around him achieve in life that which they wished. …
 Jim Rohn won the CPAE award in 1985 from the National Speakers Association.
He wrote more than 25 books as well as audio and video programs…

Rohn spent much of his live advocating for the power of self-discipline, and he delivered his seminars for more than 40 years. He died in 2009 with a net worth of more than $500 million dollars.

I want to share Jim’s Rohn’s basic philosophy with you through each of these 10 Core Commitments

in the hope they will help you understand the principles that created them.  These 10 Core Commitments have

been a driving force in many of the topmost and successful MLM companies in the United States. The

10 Core Commitments were created by Jeff Olsen but inspired by Jim Rohn. I thought you might like to

see some of the inspiration behind these commitments that personally changed my life and

have helped create hundreds (if not thousands) of six figure earners. Please take the time to

listen to the video by Jim Rohn as it is business / life changing! 


The foundation of the 10 Core Commitments is discipline to a daily,
weekly, monthly and yearly plan.

"...drifting aimlessly through life only leads to bitterness and disappointment.”
And then he added: “Discipline is the foundation on which all success is built.
Lack of discipline inevitably leads to failure." Jim Rohn
"Help others see themselves better than they are." Jim Rohn. 

In order to do that, take the steps to first better yourself
and make a commitment to become better.




( Daily is in blue,

Weekly is in Green

and Monthly/Yearly is in Red )

1)  Finish the Getting Started Video and implementing it. Get back with your sponsor about it. Ask your sponsor to send it to you. 

Start from wherever you are and with whatever you've got.” 
“ Without constant activity, the threats of life will soon
overwhelm the values.”

“ If you don't like how things are, change it! ...Jim Rohn

2)  Take time each day to read or listen to personal development and encourage your inward strategy. You are your biggest asset, so treat yourself this way. Spend 10 mins to 30 mins a day. 

“It isn't what the book costs; it's what it will cost you if you don't read it."
“Hear or read something challenging, something inspirational,
at least 30 minutes a day, every day. You can get along without some meals,
but you can’t get along without some ideas, examples, and inspiration.” Jim Rohn

3)  Learn each of the 12 Pillars, SOGR and Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion. Implement them. See them here.

The Twelve Pillars, by Jim Rohn, is one of the most important books ever
written in personal development. It is one of my top ten favorite books
that has had a significant impact on my life! Study each one of the twelve
pillars, memorize them…then live them! I promise you that your life will
never be the same!

Preface To The Twelve Pillars by Chris Widener
I believe that there are core principles of success and universal and
timeless truths
that men and women of every generation can apply to
their lives that will help
them succeed in every area of their life.

4) Advertise your business every day, preferably 30 mins to 1 hour a day (but at least 10 mins a day).

The foundation of the 10 Core Commitments is discipline to a daily,
weekly, monthly and yearly plan.

"If you do something often enough, a ratio starts to appear." Jim Rohn.

5)  Connect with your sponsor, coach and team at least once each week.

 “You're the average of the five people spend the most time with,”
a quote attributed most often to motivational speaker Jim Rohn.
"But it’s common for entrepreneurs to underestimate the importance of the company they keep.
Bottom line: The people around you matter." Kai Sato
There's also the “show me your friends and I'll show you your future” and
There is a saying that goes: “Your net worth is correlated to your network”

6)  Find and connect with your “workout partner” each day.

Jim Rohn used to say, “If you don't design your own life plan, chances are
you'll fall into someone else's.
... Finding a workout buddy with similar goals can help with that."

7)   Attend a team webinar once a month.

What a seminar did for Jim Rohn: 
"Rohn began his career as stock clerk for Sears,
but after attending a lecture given by entrepreneur John Earl Shoaff,
he decided to follow a different path. He asked Shoaff to be his
mentor and followed every bit of advice he
could glean from him. Rohn became a direct marketing distributor.
Within just six years, Rohn earned his first fortune,...

8)  Learn and implement the 5 Critical Skills in some way each day. Either be working through the “Training Points”, “The Challenge” or Coaching/Mentoring. 

“Don't wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don't wish for less problems,
wish for more skills." Jim Rohn
Service to many leads to greatness." Jim Rohn quoted "the master teacher (Jesus)". 

9)  Go through the Effective Communication Workbook a little each day. Go here

“There is immense power when a group of people with similar interests gets
together to work toward the same goals.”

"Everything magic is challenging." Jim Rohn
"Let's go do it. Not 'You go do it'. It's 'let us go do it!"...
"The power of people working together."

10)  Be here a year from now. 

"Here is a good question to ask yourself: Where are you going? 
Ten years from now you will surely arrive." Jim Rohn
"Discover the four "seasons" of opportunity and make them work for you. Jim Rohn

You can go do that everyday…changing someone’s life…”
