The farmer bases his life on the changing seasons, which determine the right time for sowing, reaping, and harvesting. In The Seasons of Life, Jim Rohn takes examples from the world of agriculture, in order to explain that we are in control of what happens to us. Life follows the seasons: if we plant the seeds of success in spring, we will reap the benefits in winter. So, just as the seasons change, the difficult times in life shall also pass. Rohn, said to have been one of the greatest motivators ever known, also explains how we can learn from the past to make better decisions for the future.

Jim Rohn was an American entrepreneur, author, and motivational speaker. He started out as a warehouse worker, then became a businessman, and made his first million at the age of just 31. Following his achievements, in 1960, he was invited by the Rotary Club to give a speech on his personal rise to success. The event was so popular that he was soon asked to speak on more and more occasions. From that moment on, Rohn turned his attention to the world of personal development and growth and, for over 40 years, he helped millions of people around the world achieve wealth, happiness, and the life they had always wanted.
