From learning these basics, you can then tackle the important inner work needed to transform yourself. After this inner work, you can turn to building a "success team" and the important ways of transforming your relationships for lasting success. Finally, because success always includes a financial dimension, you can learn to develop a positive money consciousness along with the habits that will ensure that you have enough to live the lifestyle you want, while keeping the importance of tithing and service central to your financial practice.
Filled with memorable and inspiring stories of CEOs, world-class athletes, celebrities, and everyday people, The Success Principles will give you the courage and the heart to start living the principles of success today.

"Canfield's energy and enthusiasm bounce off the page; many will flock to this inspiring (and very rich) teacher. And those starting off in business or in need of a refresher course may consider this title required reading". (Publishers Weekly)
"Compelling. Canfield does an excellent job of...first, indicating what kind of thinking people need to do to understand how they would like their lives to play out, and second, imparting the courage to take action....Original and refreshing." (Booklist)
Jack Canfield seems to have collected all the success principles ever taught and put them all in one book. He provides useful examples to illustrate each principle. The book has a website that provides additional support material. This is a good audiobook to listen to but I give it a lower rating as many of the principles were left out in this abridged version. In order to get the full benefit, you will have to purchase the book.
The Success Principles notes
1) Use mind mapping to break down your goals
2) Add the phase or something better when stating what you want.
3) Take pictures of things you want to obtain. Example: Lexus LS and dream house etc..... Look at them everyday.
4) Act as if you already have what you want it sends strong signals to the subconscious.
5) The law of attraction - like attracts like things!
6) Nothing happens until you TAKE ACTION - you can think all you want - Take action!!!
7) Ready: Fire: Aim: - doing this in this order gets you into action. After you fire and see where the bullet landed - then read adjust your aim and fire again.
DO IT NOW!!!
8) Three keys to success:
Being at the right place at the right time.
Knowing you are there!
9) Failure is part of the learning process. Make mistakes - listen to the feedback - then correct.
Hope this helps. Thanks Ralph
I believe that if you use half of the information in this book you will be so successful. I have listened to this book three times in one week.., each time I get something amazing from it. I have been applying the principles to my life and have seen changes in only 1 week. I am looking forward to seeing how this will play out. The book is well articulated and very easy to listen to. It is inspiring. I will read (listen ) to other audio books written by Jack Canfield. I look forward to learning from him...
Being a motivational book junkie for the past 20 years or so years, it is nice to run into a book that doesn't repeat the same message over and over and over again--"Groundhog Day" style.
Mr. Canfield covers old ground in new ways--and introduces some powerful success strategies. There are plenty of real world examples showing how these techniques have worked for Mr. Canfield and others. The book has the same upbeat, inspirational, unabashedly warm style of the "Chicken Soup for the _______ Soul" books.
I hope that if you decide to download this book, applying the principles will help you to realize your yet undreamed dreams.
On second thought, I hope you realize your yet undreamed dreams, even if you don't download this book :)
As a great fan of Jack Canfield I had high expectations for this program and was not disappointed. The program covers all of the basic goal setting techniques, visualisation, affirmations etc.
I must admit I was expecting more and for anyone who has heard Jack's other books or seen his seminars then there is little new here, the same applies for anyone who has listened to Tony Robbins.
The same anecdotes (Sly Stallone, Sleepless in Seattle etc) do get a little tiring once you've heard them for the 6th or 7th time but they are still good stories.
Overall a good book and well worth a listen if you are relatively new to the genre old hands may find that the information acts as a good reminder to the basics.
One comment on the delivery, there are occasions when it feels like Jack is going through the motions rather than the emotions and it comes across a little dry and over worn in places. Not up to his usual energised self.
This audio book kind of made me angry. It is abriged and he immediatly tells you that most of the principles are covered, but if you want them all, you should purchase his book. If I'd known that I would have bought the book, it's even less expensive on Amazon.
This audio version is abridged BUT the advantage of repeated listening is well worth the price to buy the audio version (even in addition to the book) for constant refreshing. The principles are wonderful and the way Jack shares them allows for the reader to easily apply them into action as soon as the reader is able and willing. This is great information for achieving high-schoolers and college students who are deciding what they want to do with their life and what they have to start doing. Thanks Jack!
I am a successful independent business owner and I just have to say that I became successful by doing exactly what "The Success Principles" says to do. I happen to come across this book in the library and picked it up. It sucked it me. If I was to write a book, it would be this one. I am serious when I say that "The Success Principles" is truely a book that will put any person on the path of being successful. I have practiced the "principles" long before this book was ever written and I they made me successful.
Jack Canfield really a Maestro ...
I've been reading Zig Ziglar, Napoleon Hill, David Schwartz, John Maxwell and others author of self-development, but I have to admitt that Canfield "Success Principles" is one level above. He described success principles right to the point with good real illustration. The principles are comprehensive and his narration are 'alive'. I will highly reccommend this book to all my friends, especially those who are the beginner in 'self-development' area.
I love these guys like Canfield who put out all this great stuff like it is their own while they "steal" everything they use from others. Dale Carnegie was writing this in 1936 and his organization is still teaching it. Give Canfield credit, tho, for changing the words around and using a few different and contemporary stories to give the advice emphasis and don't let this diminish the message as it is a good one for each generation that comes along. It was good 70 years ago and remains just as powerful today. Good book!
"Very good book"
Very good book. Shows how person can change its life and that anyone can acomplish anything if he really wants to. If You listen to this book and live by most of its rules nothing will be impossible to You!
This is an absolute must for anyone wanting to change their life - and their life horizons. Jack Canfield shares his principles for success in an easy to listen format, packed with examples of how others have used these principles to dramatically change their own lives. If you don't like where your life is at, listen to this and change where you're going - anyone can change at any time!
"A good read to uplift your motivation"
I really liked this book and have ordered another one by the same author. He reads at a good pace, has a comfortable sounding voice and is a good motivator. The book is easy to understand and to put into practice. If you want to make changes in your life then this book is a good place to start.
Enjoyed this book immensely, it was thought provoking & useful in starting off on the path towards getting out from the ordinary into the extra-ordinary. Recommended reading.
"Lots of great principles in there"
Some powerful stuff. I'm going to listen to it again and make some notes. Then get cracking, changing my life!

Really helpful and with good examples.
It is easygoing and very easy to listen.
