A Special Tribute from Jim Rohn's Grandson

Sunday, December 5, 2010, marked one year since the passing of Jim Rohn. In February of this year, Jim’s grandson, Emmy-nominated film composer Nathanael Pangrazio, introduced a beautiful piece of music dedicated to the memory of his grandfather at the Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Jim Rohn Event held in Anaheim, California. In honor of Jim, Nathanael has graciously allowed us to share the composition with you.

This work for chorus, strings and organ is dedicated to my grandfather, Jim Rohn, to commemorate, on the anniversary of his passing, the memory of a great man.  I hope that it adequately expresses my appreciation for all the things he gave to me, and to the world. In this work, I wished to explore the complex and tumultuous emotions that come with the loss of a loved one. When we miss them, there is powerful sorrow. When we remember them, there is joy. And when we contemplate that they are no longer in this dimension, there is mystery and wonder. My thanks to the team at Jim Rohn International for making it possible for me to share this work with Jim's many fans.Nathanael Pangrazio

Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Jim Rohn

Jim Rohn, our mentor and friend, passed away December 5, 2009, and was laid to rest Saturday, December 12, 2009, at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California.

Jim touched millions of lives over the past 46 years through his seminars, books, articles and CDs. His life’s passion and inspiration was making a difference in people’s lives.

The Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Jim Rohn event was held in Anaheim, California, on Saturday, February 6, 2010. Family, long-time friends and many special guest speakers, including Anthony Robbins, Les Brown, Brian Tracy, Chris Widener, Denis Waitley and Darren Hardy, paid tribute to Jim by sharing their thoughts and insights on some of his most powerful success principles. The event was attended by more than 1,300 people whose lives have been impacted by the wisdom of Jim Rohn.

He loved making a difference in people’s lives, that was his passion and inspiration. Yet he was also a private man who kept a small, loyal and caring inner circle. He was a tremendous friend to those who knew him.

Harold Dyke, long time close friend of Jim’s for over 55 years said it best, “As Jim is ending one life he is simultaneously being birthed into a new life. One that he has talked about over the years and anticipated with great joy in his last remaining days.”

Someone once said “when you are born you enter the world crying while everyone else is rejoicing and when you die hopefully you have lived such a life that everyone will be crying while you are rejoicing”. Jim Rohn lived such a life.

We know Mr. Rohn is looking down on us at this very moment with a smile saying I did it, I gave it my all, I went for it, now it’s your turn. Go for it. Make your life a life worth living well!

View a special tribute to Jim below produced earlier this year and debuted at the March 2009 SUCCESS Symposium. You are also encouraged to post your thoughts and remembrances of Jim on the Memorial Wall below.

Jim fondly closed his programs with the following sentiments: “I go with you in all the experience that we’ve had. But I promise you this as we leave here:
I will not leave you behind. I’ll take you with me in my thoughts and in my heart.”

I loved Mr. Rohn and met him briefly at some of his seminars. He had the gift to spellbind an audience and I thought he was the absolute best. I loved 'ZIG' too but rated Jim a little higher. I still listen to his CD's on a regular basis, so motivational !!

Jim Rohn, nos ha cambiado el chip mental, que la sociedad nos ha colocado condicionándonos, para vivir con el miedo. El nos ha enseñado a creer en nosotros mismos, en nuestras capacidades,y en vivir una vida de propósito. Sus enseñanzas nos inspiran y motivan a perseverar en el logro de nuestros propósitos.

Antonio Fernández Palma

Since i knew Jim Rohn through his touching CDs and seminars, my life has dramatically changed to the better. I am no longer the same person. His wisdom weighed on me, to the extent that i listen to his talks on my mobile and computer every day. I like this great man and his philosophy. God bless him.

Jim Rohn has been such an inspiration to me over the years and I've learned so much from him. He set the bar very high, and his values and standards were impeccable. Fortunately, he left behind an amazing legacy of books and recordings so that we can continue to learn and benefit from his works. You are very much missed Jim Rohn - RIP.

I got to know about Jim Rohn some months ago when i was reading a motivation book, and the writers where inspired by him. So i decided to search out for the Great Man and i was surprise that i had not know this man early than before i am 29yrs. But all the same from the little tapes i have listening about him has help me in shape my way of life. I really like his usual saying Philosophy. He really served since he used to say you have to be at the service of others and not expense of others. Thanks Jim Rohn where ever you are residing know and condolence to the family.


Several weeks ago I was kind of down on myself because of my current career and financial situation. Then I started listening to Jim over and over again. He is my mentor. He is alive in me. To the point that I am starting to talk like him. I'm setting my sail now. One day, I'm going to share my success with Jim.

Aric Watson

Mr. Rohn was my favorite author on personal development of all time. He advised me on philosophy and to make myself better. The network of mentors I reached after Jim Rohn's audio's and newletters has lead me to great experts. The spirit lives on, and I believe those ideas have had a major impact on my decisions.

I first heard Mr. Rohn through one of his audio programs back in 2004. I loved his direct simple no nonsense all made sense. When I was at the lowest point of my life his teachings helped me to bounce back. Although I never met Mr. Rohn I consider him a mentor and teacher. The 5 major pieces are the cornerstone of how I live my life. My condolences to his family....however I know that his family is proud of the impact he had on the world. Thank You.

I am privileged to have *met* Jim Rohn through his books and CDs because of my network marketing journey. I am so pleased to witness his legacy lives on. He is truly an amazing leader who can touch people from all walks of life. It does not matter who you are, what you do, what your past is, what you believe you know or not know. The single most important lesson that I have learned from Jim is to work harder on SELF. My life has been blessed through *meeting* him. Viola Tam (from Sydney)

I was fortunate on more than one occasion to sit in a room alone with Jim & one other person and talk with you, it completely changed my life & the way I live from the first time I heard you speak to then see you live in different parts of the world.. I hate to think where my life could have gone if it weren't for your philosophies, wisdom and the living example you set for me daily to fashion my life with great care.. Gabriel Lara

Gabriel Lara

I saw Mr Rohn many years ago in Brisbane Australia. Two things became precious - "It's easy to do, it's also easy not to" and "you have the power to have a good day, all day, every day, unless YOU give it to someone else". The second one lived on our fridge when the kids were growing up and had an enormous positive impact. with thanks
