Book Of The Week: “The Success Principles” By Jack Canfield
This week’s book to read is The Success Principles by Jack Canfield. I read this book about 5 years ago and still refer to it. Have to say the principles are still the same now as they were when originally written.
Many people have heard of Mr. Canfield from his highly popular books – Chicken Soup for the Soul. I’ve read several of them myself and the stories are very inspirational. In The Success Principles, Mr. Canfield lays out different truths or life principles that, if followed, can lead to success, happiness and more. The first principle itself – take 100% responsibility for your life – is a game changer. I read that chapter several times just to let the principle sink in.
It is a thick book – over 500 pages – so it is one that can be read a little at a time. That way you can practice the lessons you need to implement in your life. Or, if you are like me, read it all in a few days, taking notes and marking pages along the way. There is so much information in this book that I actually have it on my iPad and on audio. That way I can read or listen to a little here and there for inspiration.
If you give it a read, let me know. I would love to hear what you think of the lessons presented in The Success Principles.
