    I Also Recommend:

    This is a "How To" for getting real focus. Are you ready?

    Jack Canfield has matured tremendously in his life's applications for success exhibited by his classic Success Principles. "The Power of Focus" is a hard core how to book with exercises, direction, and examples for all points presented.

    Personally, I found I have matured passed the level of training provided in this book. Having said that, for someone just starting out on their journey to focus or refocus their lives, this is an excellent blueprint to accomplish that goal.

    I recommend you read this book with an attitude open to learning new concepts, use a quality highlighter, and have a notepad on the side. The organization of the material is well placed and flows smoothly making the utilization of the book easy to apply.

    I found, as is with Jack et.al. writings, there is very little theory and generous concrete and proven techniques based on their personal experiences. I do like this about his books. I don't know about you, but I look for what works in reality, not what people believe should work. My goal in life is to reduce my trial and error, learning from other people's experiences.

    Focus on Your Strengths

    I have been thoroughly impressed by this book. It covers goal setting and achievement from a somewhat different perspective. For instance, the authors criticize the American Educational System efforts to make everyone marginally competent in everything. As they point out, the great achievers in sports and in business identify what they are great at then focus, focus, focus on honing those skills. Achievers let someone else handle their weak areas. These three authors liberally sprinkle insights like this throughout the book. Another key concept is the power of an afternoon nap to recharge your batteries mid-day thereby allowing you to return to work refreshed and alert. Finally, to keep a sense of humor, they include some great cartoons.

    Jack Canfield walks his talk

    The author has used these principles to create outstanding success. This book is well worth reading if you want to be successful. Another book that I absolutely recommend is Optimal Thinking because it shows you how to be your best and make the most of every situation

    So much wisdom for so little money...

    This book gives a profound description of how to go if you want to pursue success, or happiness in your life. It is giving a lot of practical, and timeless information about different stages in the reach for your goals, and is written with a lot of step-by-step guides. This was the first book I read twice in a row. I like the step-by-step procedures that are described, and the referrals to other books in this field that made an impact on my life. It is impossible to try to make an overview in here, and that would probably hurt the book... but if you are looking for direction in your life, if you want to hit your targets, your degree of certainty will raise exponentially, after reading this master piece...
