The 5 Major Pieces to the Life Puzzle

“Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals.”  ~Jim Rohn

Herein lies the answer to why so many people find success to be so elusive!  Most people see success as a great mystery to be solved, and until they find the magic key, the door will not open.  Well if that’s been your thinking, the great news is, THERE IS NO MAGIC KEY!

So if you’ve been standing behind the door, waiting for someone to hand you the key, well now is your chance to step in to a new way of living!  And if you’re someone who has been trying key after key, struggling to find the right one, the same goes for you.  The door is unlocked and the good life is right there on the other side for your taking!  Yes, right now!

The only “key” you need to improve your circumstances in life is to master the time-tested principles that have been passed down from generation to generation demonstrating a long line of human achievement.   While furthering your education is definitely one of the basics, I see so many people trying to master more and more while focusing less and less.

I see two huge problems with this type of activity.  First, I see so many people taking course after course but NOT IMPLEMENTING what they learn!  And then they wonder why success is evading them!  Hmmm….

Second, I see many well-intentioned people plugging away at all the right steps, but completely missing the mark because they are missing some of these basic fundamentals I’m talking about.  After all, you can’t build a skyscraper without an incredibly strong foundation, right?!

So what are these foundational elements that when mastered, will have the greatest impact on your quality of your life?

To answer this, I’m going to dive in to a must-read book by Jim Rohn, The Five Major Pieces to the Life Puzzle.   I absolutely love this book!  It is one of those books where you just can’t stop underlining because everything is so powerful!  I love the way Jim talks about these 5 fundamentals each being a piece to a puzzle, and if any one piece either doesn’t fit or is missing, the complete picture never reveals itself.

In today’s post, I will focus on the first fundamental, which serves as the main anchor which will hold everything in place.  This is your Personal Philosophy.  Your personal philosophy comes from “what we know and from the process of how we came to know all that we currently know.”

This is where it all begins….and unfortunately for some, where it all ends.  Your personal philosophy is about making choices based on the beliefs and values you have formed over the years, and those beliefs and values in term determine whether you will experience inevitable success or unavoidable failure.  So yes, this is HUGE!

Jim likens personal philosophy to the set of a sail.  We all know that the winds of circumstance blow each of us along our journey in life.  The reason we all end up in different places is because we are all the captains of our own ship, and therefore it is up to us to determine the set of our sail.

“In the final analysis, it is not what happens that determines the quality of our lives, it is what we choose to do when we have struggled to set the sail and then discover, after all our efforts, that the wind has changed direction.

When the winds change, we must change.  We must struggle to our feet once more and reset the sail in the manner that will steer us toward the destination of our deliberate choosing.”

It has often been said that one of the best ways to learn to do something right is to do something wrong.  If in the past, you have blamed others, manipulated the truth or drifted off in ignorance when failure has come knocking on your door, then you also likely have found yourself repeating those errors time and again.  The essential thing to do from this point forward is to “make the memories of past events our servants, lest the repetition of those events makes us their slave.”  It is only by fully accepting the reality of our failures that the lessons can guide us to higher levels of success and fulfillment.

There are untold opportunities for learning all around us.  Here are just a few thoughts and quotes from the book on ways to refine your personal philosophy and journey toward the good life:

1.  Learn from other people’s experience with failure.  There are 2 very important categories of study here:  those examples you want to follow, and those you want to avoid.   Similar experiences that produce vastly different results.  This learning is gold!

2. Learn from other people’s success. Study the habits, the disciplines, the language and the dress of those who you admire for the success they have achieved.  A great source for this is simply reading quotes books.

3.  Capitalize on the power of positive influence. “The key is to find unique human beings whose personalities and achievements stimulate, fascinate and inspire us, and then strive to assimilate their best qualities.  Great projects are always built from a pattern or blueprint.  In this lifetime there is no greater project than the deliberate development of our own lives.”

4.  Become a good observer. Be alert.  Pay attention to what is going on in your industry, your government, your community, your neighborhood.  Keep an eye out for new opportunities, tools and techniques as they emerge.  Be awake!

5. Become a good listener. “One of the greatest attributes of leadership is effective communication, and learning what to say comes only when we have learned how to listen. The art of listening is an opportunity to add to our knowledge and to increase our value.  The process of speaking, on the other hand, is the act of putting on display all – or the little – that we have learned.  We must first master the art of listening before our spoken words will have any great value to others.”

6.  Read all the books. “Reading is essential for those who seek to rise above the ordinary…..if we fail to set aside the time, if we fail to pick up the book, if we fail to exercise the discipline, then ignorance will quickly move in to fill the void.”  The habit of reading personal growth and success books is what allows us to re-set our sails based on their experience, thus expediting our path to success and happiness.

7. Keep a personal journal. A journal has two remarkable benefits.  It allows us to capture a moment for future review, and also, the very act of writing allows us to think more objectively about our actions.  Writing slows down the flow of information, allows us to really ponder and analyze the experience, and in turn, we communicate more effectively.

In essence, developing a sound philosophy prepares us for making sound decisions and choices.  We now have a solid foundation to support the vision, and are well on our way to living the good life!   Success is really much simpler than most think.  Just like failure results from small errors in judgment repeated every day, success results from small disciplines practiced every day.

So if success is so easy to achieve, why don’t more of us do it?  The answer is simple.  Because what is easy to do is also easy not to do!   It is always a choice.

“We must each make our own conscious decision to reach out for the good life through the refinement of our thoughts and the careful examination of the potential consequences of our accumulated errors.  We must not allow ourselves to think that the errors don’t matter. They do. We must not allow ourselves to assume that a lack of discipline in one small area of our lives will not make a difference.  They will. And we must not allow ourselves to believe that we can have all that we want to have and become all that we wish to be without making any changes in the way we think about life.  We must.

Stay tuned for next week’s post where I’ll move on to a discussion on Attitude.  But in the meantime, pay close attention to what I have shared here.  The remaining pieces of the puzzle of life will be of little value if we have not resolved to develop a sound personal philosophy and become the master of our own ship!

  1. Aloha Beth,

    Thank you so much for writing this beautiful post on Jim Rohn’s “The Five Major Pieces to the Life Puzzle”! As you know, Jim was and still is one of our long time mentors and we miss him dearly. His words speak so much truth and his philosophy is the reason so many of us have such a solid foundation today!

    I am so glad you will be doing a series on his book. He is truly the master of Personal Development. Thank you for honoring him!

    Your articles are always so inspirational Beth! Thank you for all you do to make this world a better place.

    Much love & gratitude,

  2. Beth,
    I love these points. I have learned so much about myself from journaling. AND being open to change is so important– even if it’s scary. Isn’t the definition of insanity doing (or thinking) the same things over and over and expecting different results…
    Thank you for some great reminders. I am going to practice being an observer for the rest of the day.

  3. Hi Beth,
    This is the first time I am here! Jim Rohn said some wonderful, meaningful things about life. There are only 2 choices – either you do or you don’t. I know it’s taken me a long time to discover that I create my life. Waiting for the external to do it can lead to some – that’s not what I wanted – experiences. It’s always best to create your own opportunities and move forward. Thank you – very insightful.

  4. Beth,
    Wonderful post about some very fundamental yet powerful keys to your personal perspective. As you say, change it up when circumstances change, be open to that change. You may have all the steps, but if you do not understand how to incorporate them into who you are, they are all for naught.

    Trust in yourself, but be open to the messages of others. You never know when you may learn that little something that fits into your puzzle.

    As I started to read your post something so simple and yet profound popped into my head that I just had to share. Maybe it’s the Wisconsin roots we share. Every year on the first day of training camp Vince Lombardi would always start by saying the same thing…”Gentlemen, this is a football”.

  10. Beth, great post! Thanks so much. It was just what I needed this morning. I really like point number 3: Capitalize on the power of positive influence.

    You know the old cliche “You are what you eat.” Similarly, “You are who you associate with.”

    If you want to be positive, successful, and happy then you have to associate with those type of people. Take care…

    Well glad I could provide just what you needed this morning, Gabe! And if you’ve read my blog much, you definitely know that the cliche “you are what you eat” is not a cliche in my world…it’s a fact! ;) And same with who we associate with. I’m sure you’ve heard it said that if you take the incomes (or anything really ~ passion/ positivity/ energy, etc.) of the 5 people you hang around most, well, you’ll see a very close reflection of yourself! So choose wisely!

    I agree that their is no magic key and I think thats one of the reasons that people don’t implement what they learn on courses. They think the ‘magic key’ wasn’t in that one so I better do another one.

  16. Hi Beth
    this kind of post is right up my alley… I love anything to do with personal development and growth and although we may have heard different teachers say similar things many times, i reckon we can never have it drummed into us too often.

    I’ve never really listened much to Jim Rohn as Tony Robbins has been more my mentor, but I definitely owe him great respect as Tony’s NO 1 mentor.. so I guess I’ve learned from him by default!

    Great to read your thoughts!

  17. Such a well written and very concise post. Never can go wrong with Jim Rohn. Your resetting on your sails is very on point. I like to use the verb “tack”. To go to point B from A is seldom a straight line. So we Tack to a place not in line with our goal but moving forward nevertheless. Getting to that point we Tack back to another point and still be moving forward. Eventually we get there and reap the success while looking back and seeing the journey of many places that helped us get there. Great great post Beth.

    Great to stop by and read another amazing post. I totally agree that most people have a lot of head knowledge but they do not take action. I believe that you have to be able to take it from your head to your heart and wrap it around your WHY for doing things in order to take and sustain action in making it happen. We all have it in us. Time to get it out! Our life is waiting for us to show up.

    Make it a great day!

  28. I read a lot of books in my life, many of them were suppose to change my life. But all these books about becoming successful were just overwhelming. They cut off my self-esteem and made me take step back instead of improving. All the points you made in your post are useful but personally I believe you are born a winner or loser and there is not much you can do to improve even if you try hard. I’m the best example of that. I tried hard all my life without any spectacular success. I’m quite intelligent, hard-working. I worked on my attitude, character and so forth and I’m still a failure in my opinion (and the opinion of many others).

    bethallen Reply:

    Hey Tom ~ Thank you for sharing yourself so authentically here. I am sorry to hear the journey has been, what you call, a failure. I’d be interested to know if you’ve ever worked with a coach? Because I respectfully disagree. While I agree we are born with certain traits and qualities that make each of us good at different things and some of us experience great ease where others struggle, etc., I do not believe anything about it to be cut and dry. There are countless stories, both that I have witnessed in my own life, and that we all have witnessed in heroic/ unimaginable/ inspiring stories around the world.

    I am an example of someone who has had to put in A LOT of often hard and impossible seeming work to get to where I am today. And I continue to work. I could not do it alone ~ yes books, courses, daily meditation and affirmation all play a significant role, but they would not play the role they do in my life if it were not for the intense work I’ve done with coaches, mentors and even therapists. The life puzzle is complex and the pieces are never fit together quite the same for any given person. It takes an unwavering commitment and strength that feels super-human at times to put it together. And even then, the pieces seem to change shape and you have to dig down deep once again to find the new piece.

    Anyhow, I could go on and on, but I just want you to know that life is a miracle and we are all capable of WAY more than any of us even know. I hope you continue on the path, as it sounds like you’ve put a lot of your heart into it. There’s always another direction to turn, and people that can assist you in getting where you’re trying to go…..

    Jim Spa Reply:

    I think I have to disagree with you Tom. I think a lot of what makes someone successful or not successful is their environment, and more in particular the people in individuals who you associate with. I think if you associate with hard-working successful people you’ll have a tendency to also be hard-working and ultimately successful.
