“Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune”

"Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune” is a saying that has been printed on many images. The saying is from American entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker Jim Rohn (1930-2009).

The Calgary (Alberta) Herald reported on Rohn’s advice on September 10, 1993:

“Formal education will make you a living, Rohn said, but self-education will make you a fortune.”


Wikipedia: Jim Rohn
Emanuel James Rohn (September 17, 1930 – December 5, 2009) professionally known as Jim Rohn, was an American entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker.

10 September 1993, Calgary (Alberta) Herald, “Low-key entrepreneur sells simple formula: Motivational speaker urges listeners to set goals that will trigger change, growth” by Melanie Collison, pg. C6, col. 2:
Rohn explained the need to invest wisdom, shaped by productive attitudes, into work.

* Life change begins with education. Learn from your own experience and other peoples, from the negative as well as the positive, he said.

Listen well and pay attention. Read books. Formal education will make you a living, Rohn said, but self-education will make you a fortune. Invest in yourself. Refine your philosophy carefully. Fill journals with ideas and goals.
