The Private Family Pain That Inspired Me To Write My Latest Book

my private pain with alcoholism by Jack Canfield

Over the past few years, I've been dealing with a private pain that I want to share with you today.

After growing up with an alcoholic mother, I was saddened when the nightmare of excessive drinking and drug use hit my family again — this time, as my sister and three of my children became part of the 70 million Americans who drink excessively (and often combine alcohol with recreational drug use).

Though we finally resolved their addictions through lifestyle modification and rehab, I turned my mind to ways to help them replace the habit of excessive drinking with a lifestyle that was future-focused, purposeful and compelling — a life that would be more exciting and rewarding than drinking with friends or getting high.

I wondered, Could the success psychology and brain science I'd been teaching for nearly 40 years be the answer?

Then I met a man who had been quietly using the principles from my books to coach excessive drinkers in the habits, mindset and behaviors they needed to cut back or stop drinking — and replace their drinking with a positive and fulfilling new life.

Sobriety coach Dave Andrews has helped more than 1,000 former drinkers replace alcohol with a new way of thinking and reacting to life's opportunities and challenges -- using my own success training concepts.

Because his results were so widespread, he and I decided to coauthor a new book about this 30-day system.

30 Day Sobriety Solution: How to Cut back or quit drinkingThe 30-Day Sobriety Solution helps you (or a loved one) cut back or quit drinking in the privacy of your own home -- without the time commitment (and sometimes negative reinforcement) of group meetings and without the cost and stigma of rehab. (In fact, with rehab costing up to $30,000 a month, this book is a tremendous bargain -- costing you less than $1 a day.)

The 30-Day Sobriety Solution is a uniquely liberating approach to releasing yourself from the bonds of alcohol in your life. And if you're already in recovery, it will support your lifelong goal of staying alcohol-free.

To get your copy, click here and and I'll help you over the next 30 days with a unique digital course I've prepared along with the book to keep you focused on your sobriety goal. It's yours free when you order The 30-Day Sobriety Solution today.

Don't wait to quit drinking or cut back. Order The 30-Day Sobriety Solution today and start creating a more sober and successful 2016 now.

It's All Because of You...

jack-giving-thanks

Here in America, it's Thanksgiving – and this year, I have more to be thankful for than ever before.

And it’s all because of you.

For the past 40 years, I’ve been on an ambitious mission: to make a huge positive impact on the world...

I truly believe we all have the right and the ability to live the life we want, and to be happy doing so. 

But to make such a drastic shift on humanity, I need help.  I cannot do it alone! 

That's why I created a “big hairy audacious goal” that will help me: to have one million individuals become certified “Success Principles” trainers – and partner with me to help people all over the world to dream big, take action, and create happier, more abundant, and purpose-filled lives for themselves. 

This is the legacy I want to leave on the world.  It's the number one thing that drives me.  I know I was put on this planet to help people, and I work every single day to find ways to do that.

This is why I started my Train The Trainer program six years ago, and it’s the reason I launched the new online version of the program this summer – to ensure that anyone, no matter where they live, can become certified to teach the Success Principles to others.

I’m extremely delighted to announce that in just a few short months, we now have more than 800 people enrolled in Train the Trainer Onlinefrom 63 countries! 

It fills me with a profound sense of pride to know that these people have stepped-up to join me in helping others become their best selves and create lives of deep joy and meaning.

Because if there’s one thing the world needs right now, it’s more people shining their light – and empowering others to do the same.

So today I would like to thank my team, who has worked so hard to help me make my audacious dream become a reality.

BUT I ALSO WANT TO THANK YOU!

The support and encouragement I’ve received this year from our Canfield Success Community has been truly overwhelming – and inspiring!

If you’ve invested in any of my products and embodied their teachings in your life, you have helped make this success possible.

If you’ve attended any of my live events or participated in any of my free online training programs, you have helped make this success possible.

If you’ve opened and read any of the emails I’ve sent over the past year, or are one of my 835,000 Facebook followers, you have helped make this success possible.

Because when I sit down to write, it’s the idea of YOU reading my words and being inspired by them to improve your life – and the lives of those around you – that motivates me to keep on doing the work I do.

SO THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart, for continuing to inspire me to empower people through my work.  

You’re the reason I’m excited to get up in the morning – and if I’ve inspired you even a fraction of how much you’ve inspired ME, I will consider my life well lived.

Oh, and if you’re new to my community, or if this is the first time you’ve ever heard about Train the Trainer Online, feel free to check out the program here.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, no matter where you live in the world.

With gratitude, Jack.

We’re on a mission to change the world. Care to join us?

Five years ago, I had a vision.

I dreamed of creating a team of people who could bring my powerful Success Principles to people from all walks of life and in every corner of the globe – so that everyone could have the opportunity to become their best self and live their true purpose. (Just imagine the impact that would have on the world!)

Since then, I’ve trained over 1,200 people to teach my proven success strategies to others. It’s so exciting to see them go back to places where I’ll never visit – and teach people how to create lives of greater joy, abundance, and meaning.

Now my team and I are ready to take this mission to the next level – and we’d love for you to join us!

If you’ve been searching for a way to empower yourself and make a profound positive impact on the world – while transforming your own life in the process – this could be the opportunity you’ve been looking for.

Announcing the NEW Success Principles: 10th anniversary edition (Plus, some free gifts for you!)

Jack-with-TSP10Ten years ago, I wrote a book that I hoped would change millions of lives around the globe.

That book was The Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be. As you probably know, the book became a New York Times bestseller and is now hailed as a “self-improvement classic.” It’s available in 108 countries and 30 languages – and yes, I’m honored to say that it has indeed changed millions of lives.

To celebrate the book’s 10-year milestone – and ensure that it continues to change the world for the better – I’m delighted to announce that we’re releasing an updated 10th anniversary edition that includes a ton of new stories and new success principles to help you achieve even more success in today’s online world.

Read on to discover what’s new in this updated edition – and why these success principles are more important than ever in 2015.

How Success Has Changed in the Digital Age

Back when I wrote The Success Principles back in 2004, blogs were only just becoming “a thing.” MSN was the biggest brand on the Internet, Yahoo was more popular than Google, and Facebook didn’t exist yet.

Clearly a lot has changed since then!

The Digital Revolution has irrevocably transformed the world we live in. There is such an overwhelming amount of out there – not to mention endless distraction in the form of cute animal videos, meaningless celebrity gossip, time-sucking game apps, and pointless personality quizzes (I don’t care which Harry Potter character I am!) – and if you’re not careful, you can drown in it.

To succeed in today’s connected world, you need to take a more diligent approach to your time management, information management, and life management. You must be able to distinguish between information that’s interesting but ultimately irrelevant – and information that you can act on to create more positive results in your life and business.

That’s why I thought it was essential to add a brand-new section to The Success Principles – with new success principles that teach you how to make today’s technology work for you, so you can find the information and resources that will propel you to a higher level of success and help you create a dedicated community of supporters who will share your message with the world.

Here’s what you’ll discover in this new section:

  • SUCCESS PRINCIPLE 63: Master the Technology You Need

Learn how to eliminate digital distraction from your life – and limit your technology use only to those tools and resources that propel you closer to achieving your ideal life. You’ll get tips on how to maximize your online productivity while protecting yourself against potential security threats.

  • SUCCESS PRINCIPLE 64: Brand Yourself with an Online Persona

Successful people know they have to carefully manage their online persona in order to present a positive image to the world. Discover what your online presence says about you – and how you can master the art of appearing competent, authoritative, and respected in all your online interactions.

  • SUCCESS PRINCIPLE 65: Use Social Media in a Way That Enhances Your Reputation

     

    Learn how to use social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram to advance your expertise, enhance your own personal brand, and attract followers who will stay engaged – and pass your message onto their friends, colleagues, and family.
  • SUCCESS PRINCIPLE 66: Use the Exponential Power of Crowdfunding

     

    The Internet is that it makes it easy for creators to find people who will support their vision and give them the funds they need to get their project off the ground. Learn expert strategies on how to generate excitement for your idea and grow a huge customer base for your product – before you create it.
  • SUCCESS PRINCIPLE 67: Connect with People Who Can Expand Your Vision

Success is a team sport – and the more people you have on your team, providing you with the expertise, resources, and support you need to achieve your most ambitious goals, the faster you’ll be able to create your ideal life. Discover how to use the Internet to build your network of supporters and create a success team that will help you achieve your goals faster.

TSP-196x280Why The Success Principles Are More Important than Ever

Thanks to the Internet, it’s easier than ever before to find the information, resources, and support you need to achieve your loftiest goals and create your ideal life. And it’s easier than ever to start your own business and sell to customers all over the globe – or become an entrepreneur and share your passion with the world.

But with the overwhelming amount of information available to us – and the endless number of digital distractions – we have bigger challenges facing us as well.

That’s why The Success Principles matter now more than ever. By following these time-tested principles, you will be able to clearly define your path to success and overcome all the obstacles – digital as well as those in the offline world, including your own head! – that are holding you back from creating the life of your dreams.

Attention Trainers: Could You Be Living AND Teaching The Success Principles?

Jack Canfield liveOne of the most powerful ways to learn anything is to teach it to others.

It forces you to clarify your ideas, confront inconsistencies in your own thinking, and more closely walk your talk. But most importantly, it requires you to read, study and speak the information over and over again. The resulting repetition reinforces your own learning.

When I launched my Train-the-Trainer program five years ago, my goal was to develop the next generation of human-potential trainers. Today, my goal is to eventually foster over one million people worldwide in teaching The Success Principles to others.

Could you be one of the 100 “insiders” I’ll work with next year to help achieve this goal?

Think about whom you might teach these principles to. Could you teach seminars locally? Can you offer a class at the local high school or community college? Could you lead a workgroup at the office to incorporate these principles on the job or in your department?

Or could you boost your existing career as a professional trainer?

If you can envision yourself as a dynamic and powerful presenter, training others in my proven success principles, click here to apply for my 2015 Train-the-Trainer Certification Program!

You don't have to be a master of implementing these principles to lead a group, since I’ll help you become a master trainer as part of this immersive professional program.

Imagine the workgroups, clubs, sales teams, women’s groups, entrepreneurs, or companies where people could be working together to support each other in actively living these principles. The results would be miraculous. And YOU can be the person that makes that happen.
