Returning for the second part of our interview, our expert guest is Jack Canfield, known as America’s #1 success coach and co-author of more than 200 books, including “The Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be,” “The Success Principles Workbook,” and the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series, which includes more than 40 New York Times best-sellers.
If you don’t know what your breakthrough goal is, how do you cut through the noise and define that? Jack believes that everyone is born with a purpose — something that brings them immense amounts of joy to do. Whatever that purpose is, you then have to find a way to monetize it. Find out what people need that you can deliver that makes people come alive. If you don’t know right away, hold on to the question and meditate on it. The answer will come to you, but you have to get out of fear and lean into creativity.
In Jack’s latest book is “The Success Principles Workbook,” but he actually doesn’t want people to *read* this book — he wants you to *do* the book. The book does have enough information on why to do the things he’s asking you to do, but the bulk is about how to take action. There are exercises, worksheets, and interactive questions to help you get clear about what steps to take.
The sequencing of events in the book is also critically important: Take 100% responsibility for your life, getting clear about your life purpose, getting clear about the vision that will fulfill that purpose, turning that vision into specific goals, getting clear about the beliefs you will have to hold, using visualization and affirmations,
Jack Canfield wants to leave a legacy of making the world realize that everyone can be as successful as they want. His goal is to have a million people teaching the Success Principles in school, chuches, businesses, and more.
The Biggest Helping: Today’s Most Important Takeaway
“I want people to know that you have everything in you that you need to achieve anything that you want. You may have to learn something you’ve never learned before, you may have to partner up with people you’ve never met before, you may have to get some certifications that you don’t have, but you are never given a dream without being given the capacity, the ability, the mindset, the skills, the talents. You may have to develop the skills but the talents are in you. So if you have a dream, know that you have the capacity to make that dream come true. I would just add to that that there is a science of success. We talk about neuroscience, we talk about physical science, there is a science of success. And if you study that science and you do things in the right way, in the right order, at the right time, you can achieve anything that you want.”
