Publisher's Summary

The Success Principles by Jack Canfield, co-creator of the phenomenal best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul series, will teach you how to increase your confidence, tackle daily challenges, live with passion and purpose, and realize all your ambitions. This audio spells out the timeless principles used by successful men and women throughout history. And the fundamentals are the same for all people and all professions, even if you're currently unemployed.

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.

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...

Could Replace a Bookshelf of Motivational Books

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 :)

Good but no great revelations

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.

The Success Priniciples

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.

Abridged but great for repetition

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!

Two Thumbs Up from a Successful Business Owner!!!

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.

The Success Principles - Jack Canfield

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.

master of self motivation

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.

Excellent book.
I also recommend The 8th Habit - the 2 books compliment each other.

Very helpful

Jack Canfield is an amazing author and reader... hearing the story read by Canfield adds a sense of credibility and calmness. The organization and ideas in the book are very helpful. He includes short inspirational stories along the way that help reinforce the principles he teaches. I have listened to my download 5 or 6 times in the past 2 month -- it's one you can learn from again and again.

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.

audio versus book

Audio is great as you can listen while doing something else. However the book is more comprehensive. Both are brilliant, if you take action, do the exercises and live the principles.

I've found this audio very inspirational. Some principles I'm familiar with and it served as a good refresh, others definitely would incorporate into my improvement plan.

It would be interesting to see how the principle of paying myself first works out, but I am definitely going to work at it until I get it right!
