As you’ll notice from reading this blog, or if you’ve been following me on Twitter, I read many different kinds of books. This includes self-help books. Some I won’t review, because they didn’t add much to my development. Some I think are worth it. This is the case of “The Success Principles”.
Jack Canfield is the bestselling author of the series of books “Chicken Soup for the Soul”. He made a huge amount of money, and he did it (so he says) using the principles outlined in this book. Most of them make real sense too.
- How to take responsibility for your life
- Set goals and manage time
- Invest in developing knowledge and core skills
- Face up to what isn’t working and stay motivated
- Focus on your unique abilities
- Transcend other people’s limiting opinions
I have taken away several very interesting tips from the above, as well as others. Towards the end of the book. Canfield mentions “the Secret” and gets a little bit spiritual. This shouldn’t put you off, if you’re not the spiritual kind. The advice the book shares is mostly practical, and you should be able to use several of the principles described.
