When it comes to books promising life changing experiences such as The Success Principles by Jack Canfield, I turn into the biggest skeptic of them all. I opened this book with a great deal of skepticism and got it only because a friend of mine whom I admire for his business successes recommended me to read it. Now, after reading the book, I think that if there could be only the single book written to help you achieve your life long goals and create the life of your dreams that will be the one! The principles described in the book are nothing short from the truth. I know that because I have discovered many of them on my own long before I read the book, you might find out that you know some of them too. But the big question is if you actually apply them. This book is created like a learner’s guide; not only it lists 64 useful principles but also contains instructions on how to incorporate them into your daily life.

The Content

The book starts with the short autobiography of Jack Canfield. He is the guy who started working as a lifeguard in community swimming-pool and now a world-renowned speaker on success commanding $25000 per speech and netting millions in yearly earnings. This is the kind of people who fascinate me the most. It is hard enough to dream big when you are at the bottom of economical chain but it takes an immense amount of effort to start on your journey to success. I known it firsthand.

Later Jack than gives you instructions on how to use The Success Principles book. As I mentioned it earlier, this book has been created in the form of a guide for learning and not just an informational source. You are advised to read it once and then consult for the rest of your life until you master all of The Success Principles described in it. He gives clear explanation each principle in easy to understand words no matter what your level of literacy is. There is often an inspiring story inside the chapter that shows particular a principle in action along with plenty of quotes coming from professional athletes, artists, movie stars, inventors, writers, politicians and leaders we all can relate to.
