This Book Changed my Life
I picked up a ratty, worn down version of this book at a rare garage sale in Malaysia for 2 Ringgit and following some of the principles broke me out of depression and fear of failure, it changed my whole mindset and lifestyle. To this day, three years later, I'm still trying to finish this book.
What makes this book so remarkable is that it is an experience. You really can't just read the whole thing through and think: "hmm, interesting." You have to follow through with the principles because it feels so wrong not to. That's why it's taken me years to get halfway through this book because it progresses as you progress yourself.
It's an incredible journey and a very wise teacher of many lessons.
Best Self Development Book You'll Ever Read
On September 14, 2015, I finished reading The Success Principles by Jack Canfield. The book is empowering and inspirational. I have recommended it to colleagues, friends and family. I would also recommend that you read it. The book is an all encompassing self development book which is riddled with inspirational stories, advice and recommendations to succeed in every endeavor of life. I have read countless books on the topic of success and must say that this one is by far one of the best. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
Thanks Mr. Canfield!
