Jim Rohns Eleventh Pillar of Success: Accelerated Learning, Part One - You Are a Genius
Hi, Jim Rohn here. This month we focus on accelerating our learning processes. How exciting! First, understand we possess the ability to improve and accelerate our learning curve. And second, this creates the potential of what we can continue to become. Wow! So let's get started. Here is an overview of the month.
1. You are a Genius. In week one, we discuss ways to unlock and tap into the incredible powerful potential you have in your mind. We will also cover the attitudes of successful learners and show how your attitude about learning will determine how far you go in your life and career.
2. Six Stages of Learning. Next week we will talk about how to accelerate your learning and discover what your unique learning strengths and weaknesses are. We will also cover the topic of finding your particular learning style, and how to best tailor your learning to fit your unique needs.
3. Improve Your Memory. In two weeks we will talk about how the mind and memory works and how to train it to remember more. We will also cover basic speed reading techniques and show you the importance of reading and how to develop a basic reading plan.
4. Life-long Learning. In week four we will discuss the importance and benefits of being a lifetime learner. In addition, we will talk briefly about a basic plan for life-long learning and how to keep your mind tuned for success, as well as how to win the battles of thought that take place in our minds.
You Are a Genius - Unlocking the Power of the Mind
This month we focus on the learning that comes through the power of the mind. Take care to feed and stimulate your brain, and you will expand your mind. A healthy brain is central to a healthy mind. Because the two are inextricably connected, I would like to start this month by giving an overview of the astounding complexity of the brain. Many of these facts may be familiar to you, but they are important reminders of this incredible tool God gave us. We again need to see the human brain and mind with wonder, awe and inspiration.
But first, what do we mean by "learning?"
Here are how some dictionaries define it:
--the act, process, or experience of gaining knowledge or skill --knowledge or skill gained through schooling or study --behavioral modification especially through experience or conditioning --to gain knowledge, comprehension, or mastery through experience or study
Keep this in mind as we go through the month. Learning is gaining knowledge through various means.
Now, a little about the brain:
The brain is the equivalent of a human supercomputer. Your brain is more complicated than any computer mankind has ever made. Maximizing your brain's ability is essential to becoming the success you desire to become - because it controls who you are. It is the command center involved in and controlling absolutely everything you do. Your brain determines how you think, feel, and act.
Simply put: When your brain is working at peak performance, it allows you to be your best, because it controls the rest.
Here are some facts about the brain:
It is about 2% of body weight.
Needless to say, most of us have barely scratched the surface when it comes to tapping into those neurons!
There are some basic influences on the brain that shape how it functions and how far it develops. Some of these include genes, health, injury, self-talk, life experiences, stress, and study (or lack of it). Notice I said that these influence the brain, but they do not determine how far you can go or what you can learn, except perhaps in the case of severe injury or mental retardation. In other words, you have the incredible opportunity to go as far as you desire!
So with such a tremendous tool at our disposal, what keeps so many from experiencing the possibilities that this tool can bring? There are some simple barriers that many people face that can have the potential to wreak havoc on our learning if we allow them to.
Barriers to Finding Your Genius
Lack of belief.
Lack of knowledge.
Lack of desire.
Lack of hard work.
So how do we overcome or break through these "barriers?" The key to breaking through these barriers is to do the opposite.
Let's look at how to knock down those barriers:
Change your beliefs.
Get the right knowledge.
Become passionate about learning.
Discipline yourself through the hard work of study.
Learning is possible, no matter what your age. You are never too young or too old. Your mind was created to learn and has a huge capacity to do so. This week, make a commitment to unlock the potential of your mind!
Next, Chris is going to talk to you about the attitudes of successful learners.
Until next week, let's do something remarkable!

What is Success Really?
Every single one of us is trying to reach success. (Whatever that is!)
Marching To A New Beat
For our family, the Fall is filled with Friday Night Lights, as our oldest child is a member of her high school marching band. While we certainly enjoy the football team's successes on the field, the process and progress of the marching band really captures our attention. From two-a-day practices in the August heat, to entering the stadium in line to the drummers' beat at each game, to practicing for the always-sold-out Patriotic Game?everything the band director does is designed to build his team into a synchronized unit performing at its highest possible talent level.

10 Universal Principles of Success
Success is not something that only a chosen few can achieve. Everyone can be successful in every area of his or her life. You just need to know how to do things in such a way as to make sure you succeed every time. Success comes as a result of forming certain habits, and continuing in them. Consistency is key. To succeed, you need to be a certain type of person. Don't be discouraged if you are not yet that type of person. With practice, anyone can become a successful person. The successful person thinks in a certain way, talks in a certain way, and acts in a certain way. The list below briefly outlines 10 of those ways (and a bonus tip!). Anyone who consistently applies these principles to any area of their life *will* experience success in that area.

Dont Let Conflict Keep You from Success
Anytime you are making ground and moving toward success, there will inevitably be the opportunity for conflict. That is just a fact of life. You put two people or more in a group and there is potential for conflict - and conflict, improperly handled, can destroy your ability to continue on and achieve your goals.

What Does YOUR Success Look Like?
What does success look like to you? Our culture often defines success as money, fame, power ? something between a Pepsi ad and a car commercial. But success is more than financial rewards, the "right" car, or the "right" job. The news is full of stories of "successful" people sabotaging themselves with poor choices. Obviously fame and money were not enough to make them feel successful in their hearts. For success to matter it needs to be on your own terms.

Super Achievers Have: Talent, Skill, Patience, and Lady Luck!
As a golfer and coach, I've been thrilled to watch the U.S. Open golf championship this week. I love the game, and have been privileged to coach some great players, so this tournament holds a special attraction for me. As many of you know, this is one of the few world championships that is literally open to all comers. If you can play golf, you can enter. Entering, however, does not guarantee victory!
