The Success Principles by Jack Canfield is essentially a collection of ideas to help the reader to achieve their professional and personal goals. Jack Canfield imparts as many as 65 principles for success to help people from any field with high dreams.
This is one of the books that has really alternated the way I use to think about Goals, Life and Success. Canfield (co-creator of the phenomenal Chicken Soup for the Soul series) outlines the principles that he has lived and taught over the last 3+ decades. Although I may not have achieved every one of Big Goals yet, I am 2 years into my journey of self-development and the ideas highlighted in the book have certainly helped me along the way.
The Success Principles gives the reader the means required to enhance confidence, deal with daily life, overcome difficulties and achieve their ambitions and goals in life. This book is a lot more than a simple collection of positive ideas thrown together, it consists of 65 workable principles that have been used by successful people from all walks of life.
The thing that I loved is that the basics are the same no matter what you do at the moment. Your goal could be to be the top seller in your office, make a million dollars, become a surgeon or get A’s in all of your exams – the strategies that you will follow are the same.
Once you have read about these fundamentals of success, your way of seeing things will definitely change in a positive way. After that it’s time to build a ‘Success Team’ and get the most out of all of your relationships. Finally, as is the way with achieving what I call ‘Circular Success’ you will learn how to develop a positive psychological scheme around money and the day-to-day habits that will allow you to create the life that you want for yourself.
The Book contains fabulous stories of Business Leaders, Elite sports people, celebrities and regular members of society. The Success Principles will allow you to take a ‘leap of faith’ and start transforming yourself immediately.
The Main Things that you will learn from this Book are:
- How to Change any event, by changing how you respond
- How to change your perception of the past so you are ready for your positive future
- How to find amazing Role Models
- How to be ready when ‘opportunity knocks’
- How to realize that some ‘good’ things may not be for you so you can embrace the ‘great’ things
- How to be courageous enough to ask for what you want
- Why you should surround yourself with Positive People
I would highly recommend The Success Principles for someone looking for a boost on their personal development journey or even someone just getting started. Don’t just read the book, live the principles and your life will change.
