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."

CHAPTER 1

Inspired Action Gets It Done

by Jack Canfield


I have had an enormous amount of success in my life, and I owe it all to two things. The first is that I have learned how to access my intuition and tune in to my inner guidance (which comes from both my own subconscious mind and from God); I have learned how to meditate, use guided visualization, and read the kinesthetic signals from my body (what some people call learning to trust your gut). The second is that I have learned to quickly act on my inner guidance—the sooner the better!


The Power of Asking for Inner Guidance

Asking for inner guidance through meditation has provided me with some very powerful ideas, ones that have accelerated the rate and magnified the size of my personal and professional success. When we needed a title for the book of inspirational and motivational stories that Mark Victor Hansen and I had compiled, I agreed to meditate an hour a day in search of the perfect title. I simply asked God to give me a title, then I sat in silence waiting for it. Nothing emerged the first two days, but on the third day, a green chalk board, like the ones used in schools, suddenly emerged. Then a hand appeared and wrote the words "Chicken Soup" on the board. I contemplated that for a moment, then I asked what I assumed was God's hand: "What does chicken soup have to do with this book?"

I heard, "Your grandmother used to give you chicken soup when you were sick as a kid."

I replied, "But this book isn't about sick people."

The voice responded, "People's spirits are sick."

This was in 1992 during the recession that accompanied the first Gulf War, and many people were indeed living in fear, hopelessness, and resignation.

I played with the title "Chicken Soup for the Spirit," which didn't sound quite right, and then it morphed into "Chicken Soup for the Soul" ... and I immediately got goose bumps—what Mark likes to call God bumps. They almost always seem to accompany an idea that is deeply aligned with what is for my highest good.

I immediately got up from meditation and told my wife, who got goose bumps. Then I called Mark, who got goose bumps, and our agent, who also got goose bumps. By the end of the day the full title had emerged—Chicken Soup for the Soul: 101 Stories to Open the Heart and Rekindle the Spirit. It seemed we were definitely onto something.


Inspiration Must Be Followed by Action

Sometimes inspirations occur without our even seeming to ask for them. Other times, we have to ask for them, then create the quiet space within which to receive them. They can occur while lying in bed in a semiconscious dream state, while taking a shower, or while walking along a beach or through the woods. But however and whenever they come, they need to be acted on as soon as possible. I have come to believe that when they come, they come in a certain window of time that is ideally suited for the action to begin at that moment.

So Mark, our agent, and I headed off to New York City to sell our book. Unfortunately, during the three days we were in New York City, no one at the fifteen publishing houses we visited got goose bumps. Everyone told us that nobody bought collections of short stories and that our title was stupid. Our agent became so discouraged that he gave us the book back and said he could not sell it.


Action Must Be Consistent and Persistent

That is when we had to choose between believing in our dream and trusting our inner guidance or believing the naysayers in the publishing industry and trusting their judgments. Well, one of the secrets of success that I have learned is to never give up on the dreams that come from deep in your heart. In fact, by this time, our dream had become more of a divine obsession. We couldn't let it go. So we took more action. Over the next five months, we were rejected by 144 publishers. Eventually, we went to the American Booksellers Association Convention and walked the floor of the exhibit area for three days asking hundreds of publishers, "Will you publish our book?" It was not until late in the third day that Health Communications, Inc., a little publisher in Deerfield Beach, Florida, decided to seriously look at our book. A month later they decided to publish it.


The Rule of Five

When the book finally came out in July 1993, it was not an overnight success. It wasn't until a year later that it hit its first bestsellers list. But it was during that year that Mark and I came up with what we dubbed the Rule of Five. We agreed to take five action steps every single day, except on holidays and vacations, to promote and sell our book. One day, we called five radio stations and asked them to interview us about the book. On another, we sent out five free review copies to book reviewers and influential people. One of those people was the producer of the hit television show Touched by an Angel. She was so taken by the book that she required all of her writers, directors, cameramen, and other crew members to read the book. She said that the feelings generated and evoked by our stories were the same ones she wanted to create in their TV episodes. That story made it into Variety and later onto the Associated Press wire and generated thousands of book sales. We also bought the book 1001 Ways to Market Your Book, by John Kremer, and wrote each way on a Post-it note and stuck them all on a long wall in our office. We did five of those suggestions every day. Eventually, Chicken Soup for the Soul reached number one on the New York Times list and stayed there for almost three years, selling ten million copies along the way.

Stop for a moment and ask yourself, "What are the five action steps that I need to take every day—no matter what—to achieve my number one goal?" If your top goal is to lose fifty pounds, it might be: 1) do some form of aerobic exercise for forty-five minutes; 2) drink ten glasses of water a day; 3) lift weights for fifteen minutes; 4) meditate for fifteen minutes; and 5) read something or listen to a CD about motivation or weight loss for fifteen minutes. Other options are do not eat dessert, do not eat sugar, cut out all fast-burning carbohydrates, take a walk after dinner, and get eight hours of sleep. In this case, you would do the same five things, or a combination from a list of ten things, every single day.

The Rule of Five can also be applied to your professional goals. One example is the Keller-Williams's 5-10-15-5 formula. They swear that anyone who uses this formula will have success in real estate sales. Have five in-person meetings with potential property listers or potential buyers. Have ten telephone conversations. Send out fifteen thank-you cards to the people you met with. Then go view five properties that are for sale so that you are very familiar with the inventory available. Everyone I know in real estate sales who follows this formula has indeed been very successful.


Not All Actions Produce Instant or Perfect Results

Not everything you try is going to work. Remember the Law of Probabilities, which states that the more things you try, the more likely one of them will work; the more books you read, the more likely one of them will change your life; the more people you meet, the more likely one of them will have the answer or be the relationship you are looking for.


Solicit and Respond to Feedback

To keep moving forward toward your dreams and goals, pay attention to the feedback you receive and adjust accordingly. Positive feedback consists of good health, many good friends, lots of sales, plenty of money, fun, joy, and happiness. Negative feedback consists of ill health, physical pain, few friends, few sales, no job, debt, constant anger, and depression. All these negatives tell you that you are not thinking the right thoughts, visualizing the right images, or taking the right actions. Pay attention. Don't go into denial. Face up to what isn't working.

The fastest way to accelerate your success is to ask for feedback from as many people as possible, thank them for it, and act on as much of it as makes sense. Here is a very powerful question for soliciting useful feedback that I learned from Strategic Coach Dan Sullivan.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate the quality of (our product, my service, the installation, me as a parent, me as a spouse, me as an employee, etc.) this past week/month?


Anything less than a 10, gets this follow-up question: What would it take to make it a 10?

It is in the answer to this last question that all the valuable information lies. Have the courage to ask this question of everyone you interact with on a regular basis. No matter how painful or discomforting their answer is, say, "Thank you for caring enough to share that with me." Don't argue with them. Just take in the feedback, see if it fits, and experiment with trying on some new behaviors.


Perseverance

Finally, never give up. Make corrections based on feedback so that you are constantly improving and getting better, but don't give up. If we had stopped trying to sell the first Chicken Soup for the Soul book after one hundred rejections, I would not be sitting here writing this today. If we had stopped trying to promote, market, and sell the book after six months of no major results, I would not be a multimillionaire who has traveled to more than forty countries speaking and training people on the principles contained in that book and my other books.

It has taken more than fifteen years to build a brand that has generated more than a billion dollars in retail sales and has created more than twenty licensed products, including Chicken Soup for the Pet Lovers Soul dog and cat foods. So also be patient.

If you follow your heart, believe in your dreams, trust your inner guidance, take action, solicit and respond to feedback, and persevere no matter what, you will eventually find yourself living a life far greater than you ever could have imagined.

CHAPTER 2

The Secret to Living a Passionate Life

By Janet Bray Attwood and Chris Attwood


Most people know that passion is common to all successful people. The power of the Passion Test lies in the fact that now, for the first time, discovering your passions is not hit or miss. Passion is no longer something available to only the lucky few.

Through a simple yet powerful process, anyone can discover the things that matter most to them in their lives.

But the question then remains, is that enough to be successful?

The answer is no.

What distinguishes those who have enjoyed enduring success in their fields from everyone else is that they have learned to make their passions the basis of every significant decision in their lives. As we say in our book The Passion Test: "Whenever you are faced with a choice, a decision, or an opportunity, choose in favor of your passions."

This is what we call the "secret that guarantees a passionate life."

Like most fundamental truths, it's easy to say but more challenging to put into practice. Why? Because when you are faced with important decisions, rarely will you know what the outcome will be, and often it will appear that choosing in favor of your passions could lead to disaster.

Because of this, there is one crucial quality that anyone who wants to live a happy, joyful, fulfilling, and successful life has to develop: trust.

Trust grows as you come to realize that it's not an accident that you love the things you do. Those things, those passions, exist because they are what will lead you to fulfill your purpose for being alive. When your life is connected to those passions, it feels meaningful, and when your life has meaning, it is fulfilling.

Ultimately, living a joy-filled life means coming to trust that life is beneficent. That means every experience, every person, every situation in your life is there to help you open up to the fullest possible experience of yourself and your life.

Choosing in favor of your passions is the key to success in life, but is it scary? You bet! Especially when everyone around you is saying that you can't do it, it won't work, you're being crazy, etc. And take our word for it, you're not alone. All successful people have those naysayers in their lives.

Janet chose in favor of her passion to become a transformational leader when she made the decision to leave her position as director of marketing at Books Are Fun, the third largest book buyer in the U.S., to partner with Mark Victor Hansen and Robert Allen. She left a comfortable, six-figure income with benefits to step into a role with no guaranteed income and no idea whether she could do what was needed.

Did that take courage? Absolutely.

How did it turn out?

Ten years later, Janet is a New York Times bestselling author, she travels around the world sharing her passion and her love, and she runs her own multimillion-dollar business.

But what if she had stayed at Books Are Fun?

Over the past ten years, the company was sold to Reader's Digest, which then went through some hard times, and the new company dwindled dramatically in size. If Janet had stayed there, the odds are she would have ended up being laid off just like most of the other employees that she had worked with.

You can't know how things will turn out when you choose in favor of your passions. That's why it takes courage to make those choices. But as you begin to make them, you will start to discover how the miraculous becomes a regular part of your own life.

When Chris married a beautiful German woman in 2006, his new wife told him, "It's really important to me that we spend at least four to six months a year in Europe."

Now, if Chris hadn't been clear about his passions, this could have been an impossible choice. He could either go with his wife to Europe and risk losing all of his income-producing activities in the U.S., or he could stay in the U.S. and risk losing his wife.

What kind of choice is that?

But Chris takes the Passion Test regularly and was completely clear about his top five passions. While his business activities were on that list, spending time with his new wife was the priority. So, when his wife told him this, his immediate response was: "Of course we'll do that."

In the first year of their marriage, Chris and Doe spent a month in the Canary Islands, two months in Switzerland, and several months in Germany. They had a fabulous time.

Did Chris give up his love for his business activities? No. But he rearranged his schedule to spend time with his family in the mornings, then work in the afternoon and evening when he could connect with people in the U.S.

Interestingly, during that year, the business did better than it ever had, and since then, the business has continued to grow, in spite of the fact that Chris will spend almost nine months in Europe this year.

Could he have known this would be the outcome ahead of time? No.

And you won't know your outcomes, either. When it's time to choose in favor of your passions, you are going to be forced to trust that things will work out okay.

Our suggestion is to take baby steps every day in the direction of the things you love.

    A Great Gift! I love the combination of quality and diversity

    A Great Gift! I love the combination of quality and diversity in this book. The chapters are short and complete, which makes it easy to dip into the book randomly. Every chapter is so well written, direct, and useful, that I find myself exploring ideas that I might not have explored otherwise because I expect to get the best of new thinking based on the quality of other chapters. Each chapter is it's own unique gift.
