Biography

While Jack Canfield himself may not necessarily be a household name, it's very likely that you have heard of his famed Chicken Soup for the Soul series and nearly as likely that you have at least one of them sitting on your very own bookshelf! Having got his start as an inspirational speaker, Canfield's own story is nothing less than inspirational.

Jack Canfield had been traveling around delivering key note speeches and organizing workshops to help audiences build their self-esteem and maximize their potential when he had an in-flight brainstorm that changed his life. While flying home from a gig, Canfield realized that the very same advice he had been delivering during his in-person addresses could potentially form the basis of a book. Canfield used inspirational stories he'd gleaned over the years as the basis of his speeches, and he thought it would be a terrific idea to gather together 101 inspirational stories and anthologize them in a single volume. Upon returning home, Canfield approached friend and author Mark Victor Hansen about his concept. Hansen agreed it was a great idea, and the two men set about finding a publisher. Believe it or not, the mega-selling series was not an easy sell to publishers. "We were rejected by 123 publishers all told," Canfield told Shareguide.com. "The first time we went to New York, we visited with about a dozen publishers in a two day period with our agent, and nobody wanted it. They all said it was a stupid title, that nobody bought collections of short stories, that there was no edge -- no sex, no violence. Why would anyone read it?"

Canfield wisely practiced what he preached -- and persisted. Ultimately, he and Hansen sold the first Chicken Soup for the Soul book to a small press based in Deerfield Beach, Florida, called Health Communications. The rest, as they say, is history. There are currently 80 million copies of the Chicken Soup books in print, with subjects as varied as Chicken Soup For the Horse Lover's Soul and Chicken Soup For the Prisoner's Soul. Canfield and Hansen ranked as the top-selling authors of 1997 and are multiple New York Times bestsellers. Most important of all, the inspirational stories they have gathered in their many volumes have improved the lives of countless readers.

This year, expect to see Canfield's name gracing the covers of such titles as Chicken Soup For the Scrapbooker's Soul, Chicken Soup For the Mother and Son Soul, and Chicken Soup For the African American Woman's Soul. He and Hansen have also launched the all-new "Healthy Living" series and 8 titles in that series have already been released this year. There is also the fascinating You've GOT to Read This Book!, in which Canfield compiles personal accounts by 55 people each discussing a book that has changed his or her life. The most compelling of these may be the story of young entrepreneur Farrah Gray, who read Deepak Chopra's The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success at the age of 11 and made his first million dollars at the age of 14!

With no sign of slowing down, Canfield continues to be an inspiration to millions, who fortunately refused to give up when it seemed as though he would never even get his first book published. "Mark and I are big believers in perseverance," he said. "If you have a vision and a life purpose, and you believe in it, then you do not let external events tell you what is so. You follow your internal guidance and follow your bliss, as Joseph Campbell used to say."

Good To Know

Canfield is the founder of two California based self-esteem programs, "Self-Esteem Seminars" in Santa Barbara and "The Foundation For Self Esteem" in Culver City.

Writing the first Chicken Soup book was a lot more daunting than Canfield expected. After the first three years of research, he and Mark Victor Hansen had only compiled 68 stories -- 33 tales shy of their goal of 101 stories.

Along with co-writing dozens of full-length books, Canfield also publishes a free biweekly newsletter called Success Strategies.

Some fun and fascinating outtakes from our interview with Canfield:

"My inspiration for writing comes from my passion for teaching others how to live more effective lives. I started out as a history teacher in an all-black inner city high school in Chicago, graduated to a teacher trainer, then psychotherapist, then trainer of therapists, then large group transformational trainer and then a writer and keynote speaker. All along the way, my desire was to make a difference, to help people live more fulfilling lives. That is what I still do today. Most people don't know this but I was not a good writer in college. I got a C in composition. Nobody would have ever believed I would grow up to be a bestselling author."

"I play guitar, and I am learning to play the piano. I love movies and some TV shows. My favorites are Six Feet Under, Grey's Anatomy, House and Lost. I love to play Scrabble, poker and backgammon with my in-laws, nieces and nephews. We really get into it. I love to travel. I have been to 25 countries and try to add two or three new ones every year."

    To: nobody likes me (original)

    Lots of people have told me tjat they dont like me. You shouldnt believe them. So what you have been rejectedvby girls at least u had the guts to. Look im no expert but i think they say no because they think they arent pretty enough or smart or skinny or athletic or maybe some of the things ur interested in. I have been with the same guy for 10 months and we dont act like it. He is a complete dork but ee somehow work for each other. Im into the same stuff hes into and he makes me laugh and i do the sme. Tell ppl how talented u r and hang out w ppl who woulf carevabout u if u stepped up. Dont hang around ppl who tell u they are worthless or dorky or that nobody likes u. This giy thar i have known since first grade told me that no one likes me. I ignored him. You should do the same. In Gods eyes u are perfect in the way that he created u. He made ur talents and physucal appearances. Everyone loves u u just dont see it. Im helping u understand bcuz ive been in lots of similsr situations n i dont like to hear ppl put themselves down. Take my advice just plz dont hurt urself......

    To: Ariel

    I know the feeling. But sometimes boys just do that. Thats what they do. I know that it sucks...but sometimes you just gotta deal with it.
    And maybe that guy likes you.....but just doesn't wanna make a fool outta himself. Boys are confusing.....whether there dating or not.....like sometimes when there in a relationship they will flirt with you......and your like" Wait arent you dating someone?
    Well sorry to tell you but.....I dont think they care whether there dating or not.

    To everybody hating on the midgets

    I get u guys think that 11 and under is to young to date. I agree with u but you dont need to yell at everyone who claims their 11 they have as much right to comment as u do. Better then lying like people do on social medias right? 11 is when u go through puberty and lets face it everyone has crushes tha young and its new experience for them. Almost all elementary school/middle even high school relationships dont last that long. So i say let kids be kids. However it is my opinion and I am not asking u to agree with me. Just stating it. Btw this book is very fun. There are some good stories.
