Jack Canfield -
Chicken Soup for the Soul,
The Success Principles...


Jack Canfield teaches how to use the Law of Attraction to achieve success. He's an internationally renowned corporate trainer and success coach. He's probably best known as the founder and co-creator of The New York Times #1 best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul book series, which became a phenomenon long before The Secret swept the world.



And I’m so glad that I finally got a chance to talk to him in person! I attended an awesome seminar where Jack was speaking about combining the Law of Attraction and The Success Principles.

How Come the Chicken Soup for the Soul Series Became So Popular?


As part of Jack's pleasant presentation style, he uses inspirational, motivational and uplifting stories to help his audiences discover and experience those key concepts and approaches. I guess his charming way just appeals to people. And, his degree in psychological education may play a role, of course...


However, he realized that after each session, audiences everywhere encouraged him to put his stories into a single book. In 1990, while on an airplane on his way home, he felt that it was time. He shared his idea with author Mark Victor Hansen, who liked the idea. So began the Chicken Soup for the Soul phenomenon. 


Jack quotes about the book series:


"I worked from 10 p.m. until 1 a.m. every night for a year to write the first Chicken Soup for the Soul book."


"The Chicken Soup for the Soul books are the result of over 20 years of teaching seminars and giving speeches. The first book contains all of the stories that I used in my seminars to illustrate the points that I wanted to make."



No, It Wasn't Easy for Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen at first.


Besides, the work proved even more challenging than either of them had expected. After three long years, these two men had compiled just 68 stories, a far cry from the 101 they thought was the magic number for a successful book...!


Not to mention how many publishers rejected them before they finally found the one who wanted to publish their book. But along the way, they were persistent.


They never gave up, not even after 144 rejections...!


How about you, would you have kept on trying and persisting after so many rejections? Nevertheless, their successful partnership has spawned many other titles that have made them enormously famous. 


Before Jack became a leading authority in the area of personal growth, he was a high school and university teacher and a psychotherapist, so he has a good formal education with some university degrees.


Today, Jack Canfield, born in 1944, speaks and shares his success strategies with individuals and companies all over the world.


His events and training programs are based on his famous book The Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be (co-authored with Janet Switzer).


In this wonderful book he shares 64 principles that he and other people have utilized to achieve great levels of success. 


Countless other success coaches speak very highly of him, saying that The Success Principles includes all the key elements of a successful life. And, I absolutely agree. This book is a very useful reading and/or hearing experience for everyone, regardless of your current situation. Just choose your favorite format: A printed copy, an e-book, or an audiobook.


The first principle of The Success Principles is that you have to take 100% responsibility of your life. No blaming others of anything you experience...!
