I’ve read countless chunks of self help and inspirational articles and tried countless chunks of activities in hopes of being at least a little happy and a little more fulfilled than before. But normally, I end up giving up halfway and even unsubscribing to their email list. This is the first time I read an actual book in the topic.
Partial Review (will be updated as I read by)
I started reading through the book and decided to jot down notes hoping to have a quick summary I can refer to since the book is pretty big. Around page 15 was when I tweeted “Reading Jack Canfield’s The Success Principles and I really think it’s worth the 1.5 inch by 10.5 inch book it is.”
I normally have high expectations on anything, but this book is able to balance out my expectations by giving me information that I never expected would actually help me determine what I want to do, clarify my visions, set my goals, manage them, and direct me to what I need to achieve them.
Normally, whenever I read a book, I simply just read the book in hopes to getting closer to the ending as fast as I can. But this time, The Success Principles makes me read, absorb and assess myself. Sure, it has some redundant and wordy parts, but I see it as aiming to emphasize some points.
I love how he gives real life examples of success stories that aim to prove that each of the principle he mentions has a weigh on its result. Each point he mentions supports your own personal plans and makes you think and answer the question he asks for each one.
