The Success Principles: How To Get From Where You Are To Where You Want To Be by Jack Canfield

Jack Canfield is probably better known to most as the co-creator of the ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ series of books. I have had this book about 6 years now and must have read it at least half a dozen times and is a favourite holiday read along with Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

The book is all about teaching you confidence and how to tackle daily challenges and to “live life with passion, purpose and to realise your ambitions”.

This is a collection of over 60 timeless principals used by successful men and women throughout history. The strategies can be applied whatever your current situation may be.

My particular favourite section is ‘goal setting’ and how to get really specific about setting goals that you can achieve. Another great section is about visualisation.

Here’s just a few of the principles Jack teaches

  • How to change the outcome of any event, simply by changing your response to it
  • How to access powerful mentors and friends who will open doors for you
  • How to prepare and be instantly ready when opportunity comes knocking
  • How to maximise your success with money, your finances and your future

The book has lots of great principles and suggested ‘to do’s’ plus some really helpful exercises.

At 500 pages it really is a whopper, but worthy to take pride of place on anyone’s bookshelf or maybe the lighter weight kindle version would be more to your taste!
