I had intended to share some coaching ideas the next time I wrote, but I found something so incredibly powerful that I wanted to share it right away. I was browsing through the bookstore last week when I noticed Jack Canfield (Chicken Soup for the Soul) had a new paperback in release called "The Success Principles" I've never read "Chicken Soup for the Soul", somehow the title never really grabbed me. It sounded a little too 'touchy-feely' for me. But I became interested in Mr. Canfield after seeing him in the "The Secret" DVD. Okay, I guess I'll have to admit that now I'm getting a little more in tune with my 'touchy-feely' side! I was intrigued by the title of this book and decided to see where this whole thing was headed. You know the old proverb that says, "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear"? I guess I must be ready!
Canfield's writing style and ability to relate the material has me looking forward to every opportunity to see down with this incredible book. This is powerful stuff, and if you're not ready for it you may blow it off as I did with "Chicken Soup". The very first chapter of the book is entitled "Take 100% Responsibility for Your Life". I wasn't quite sure at first if I was ready for that much responsibility! A section of that first chapter states, "You either create or allow everything that happens to you." This is all in the first few pages! Canfield mixes sections like this with quotes and philosophies from many of the speakers and great thinkers he's come across to present a great case for thinking big, having a plan, and taking action. Pick up this book today and get started on the plan that will take you to your wildest dreams!
