Jack Canfield’s Success Principles
I’ve learned about the success principles from Jack Canfield. In his book “The Success Principles”, Jack Canfield presents the sixty-four principleswhich, if learned and practiced, can help everyone to realize their goals. The principles that he teaches are timeless. He did not invent them, butcollected them from many successful people. He has learned and practiced them himself, and has presented them in his excellent book. He was ableto present the great knowledge in a clear and easy to understand way.I’ve chosen and briefly described the ten principles from Canfield’s book which I think are most important. 1) Take100% Responsibility for Your LifeThe first principle states that there is only one person who is 100% responsible for my life-it is me.This is the first principle of success. If we want to be successful in life, we first have to take total responsibility for our lives. We’re responsible for allour successes and failures, health, relationships, financial situation, our feelings and everything else.It is me who has created the life I am living now so I must take full responsibility for it. If I don’t take full responsibility, I can’t achieve things which areimportant to me and I can’t re-make my life.To really take 100% responsibility for our lives, we must stop blaming others for our problems and failures. We have created our current situations byour thoughts and activities so there is no reason to blame anybody. We can blame only ourselves, but that is also useless because the past is thepast; we can’t change it. But now we can create our future. We have always had the power to do it, but for different reasons we haven’t. Now we cando things differently and get the results we want. This is because of the rule: E+R=0(Event +Response=Outcome). The rule says that every outcomewe experience in life (good or bad) is the result of how we responded to the previous events in our lives.We can see that in the same situations people react differently. Some are successful, some are not. We can see that, by responding in a differentway, we can get different results. That is why blaming events for our failures are pointless. We must change our responses to the events and then wecan get the results we want. We don’t have control over a lot of the events in our lives, but we have control over our responses. We can change ourthinking, our behavior, and our communication. We can also change our old habits into the new, better ones.Jack Canfield states that “Everything you experience in life – both internally and externally – is the result of how you have responded to a previousevent”. Everything I experience today is the result of the choices I have made in the past. I have control over three things in my life: my thoughts, myvisualizations and my actions. So to change my life I need to change my thoughts, my visualizations and my actions to positive ones. If I keep mynegative responses from the past I will keep getting the same negative results, so now is the time to stop complaining and blaming others for my badresults and take full responsibility for my life.This principle is the prerequisite to a successful life. It is the basic principle. I personally started with this principle because without this principle Iwouldn’t be able to implement the other principles. 2) Principle Believe it’s PossibleAccording to this principle, we are able to achieve whatever our minds can conceive and believe. Jack Canfield explains why our brains work this wayand gives some examples but the important conclusion for us is that we must replace all our negative expectations with positive ones, and then ourminds will start working to accomplish the outcome we want.People often do not reach their goals, not because they lack required skills, but because they don’t believe they can reach them. 3) Believe In Yourself This principle is connected with the previous one. I am able to achieve whatever my mind can conceive and believe, so I must believe in myself. If Iwant to create the great and successful life I desire, I must believe that I can make it happen. I have to believe that I have all the abilities, skills andinner resources to do it.I need to choose to believe that I can achieve whatever I set my mind on. If I think that something is impossible to achieve, I will not do everythingnecessary to achieve it. If I believe that it is possible for me to achieve something, I will do everything necessary to achieve it.To be successful I need to give up “I can’t”. My brain is able to solve any problems I give it and reach any goals I have, but my negative words andthoughts have a negative and limiting influence on my mind, so I give up all my negative thoughts and words.Jack Canfield gives some examples which prove that belief in you is more important than knowledge, training or schooling. Quite a few verysuccessful people dropped out of college. 4) Release the BrakesAccording to this principle, most people drive through life with their psychological brakes on. The brakes are negative images about themselves,inaccurate beliefs about reality, guilt and self-doubt.These brakes cancel out people’s good intentions, no matter how hard they try.Successful people release the brakes
