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."

SOBRE LAS RELACIONES

l amor es una fruta de todas las temporadas, y está al alcance de todas las manos.
— Madre Teresa

Stephen Levine
'Párate derecha, con los hombros hacia atrás, levanta el mentón, mira hacia el frente, sonríe', me dije. No, era una ta-rea imposible. Me puse los anteojos y volví a mi habitual postura desgarbada. Me arrepentí de inmediato de esa decisión mientras me deslizaba discretamente en mi pupi-tre. Sus ojos ni siquiera se movieron para mirarme mientras yo entraba. Tampoco tenía mucho caso que, como últi-mo recurso, aclarara mi garganta para que él notara mi llegada.

Conforme sacaba mi carpeta claramente rotulada 'Historia', lo miré de reojo con discreción mientras él se senta-ba en el pupitre junto al mío. Ahí estaba justo como lo había soñado la noche anterior: perfecto. Todo en él estaba bien: su sonrisa, la forma en que un mechón de cabello caía sobre sus ojos y, ah, sus ojos. Él debe de haber sentido que lo observaba porque, de repente, volteó y me miró. Yo, rápidamente bajé la mirada y la dirigí a mi carpeta fingiendo estar muy interesada en buscar un apunte. Ni siquiera me atreví a ver de reojo para saber si aún me observaba. En lugar de eso, desvié la vista hacia la ventana. La luz del sol me hizo entrecerrar los ojos.

Es irónico, pero pasaré el verano en la escuela. Yo no reprobé esta materia, como lo hicieron todos los demás es-tudiantes que están aquí. Lo que pasa es que tengo un increíble anhelo de aprender y quiero sacar el mejor provecho posible de mi paso por la preparatoria. Para decirlo más claramente, soy una nerd. Una cerebrito. Un ratón de biblioteca.

Con el rabillo del ojo pude ver que su mano estaba a punto de tocarme el hombro. Cada músculo de mi cuerpo se tensó. Fue un toque tan suave que casi no pude sentir sus dedos. Volteé hacia él con los ojos fijos en el mosaico del piso. No pude atreverme a mirarlo a los ojos. En ese instante, simplemente no me sentí merecedora de tal cosa.

—La tarea de ayer, ¿la terminaste? —me preguntó él.
'¡Por supuesto que la terminé! Terminé todas las tareas de ayer. ¿Qué no sabes quién soy? Soy la persona más inteli-gente de toda la escuela. Todas las noches de todos los días paso innumerables horas frente a la pantalla de mi compu-tadora. El vigor que hay en mí me impulsa todavía con más fuerza. Algún día seré un ser tan inadaptado que desearé ir a las fiestas con mi laptop. No, aún no he llegado a esos ex-tremos. Por ahora, me complace saber que aún hay algo que no sé: lo que estás pensando en este instante.'

Aclaré mi garganta y dije:
—Sí, terminé la tarea.
—Yo me atoré un poco con la pregunta trece. ¿Sabes cuál es la respuesta? —dijo, mientras ponía el lápiz sobre su oreja con un suave movimiento.
—Yo —le respondí.
—¿Qué? ¿Tú eres la respuesta? —me preguntó confundido.
—No, no.

Pude sentir que mis mejillas se encendían. '¡Diablos! Si soy tan inteligente, ¿cómo es posible que cometiera tal error? He practicado miles de veces lo que debía decirle.' Supuesta-mente la conversación debería desembocar en una invitación para salir. Él se reiría por mi ingenio y pensaría que no existe nadie más interesante que yo.

Respiré hondo y dije:
—El grupo de expertos que trabajaba con Franklin Roosevelt.
Me dio las gracias mientras tomaba el lápiz que estaba en su oreja. Lo observé cuando él anotaba con descuido la respuesta y luego cambiaba la mirada del cuaderno hacia la rubia detrás de él; intentó impresionarla haciendo uso de su sentido del humor. Ella apenas si sonrió. Yo hubiera reído estrepitosamente. Pero entonces recordé que el comentario humorístico no era para mí. Estudié los movimientos del cuerpo de ella mientras se inclinaba hacia él, jugueteando con un mechón de cabello entre sus dedos. Un milímetro más y sus narices se habrían tocado. Con toda intención, empujé mi lápiz para que cayera del pupitre.
Distraído, desplazó su atención de los ojos de la rubia hacia el piso. Se inclinó y recogió el lápiz que estaba medio roído. Se enderezó y su nariz quedó más cerca de la mía de lo que había estado de la de ella. Mi mano rozó la su-ya al momento de tomar mi lápiz. Mis brazos se erizaron y mi corazón aceleró su ritmo. Él nunca me había demostra-do tanto interés.

Como si ese momento hubiera sido sólo parte de su imaginación, sin decir palabra, regresó con su reina de belleza. Desilusionada, me incliné hacia adelante y me apoyé en la mano, mirando aterrada cómo ella sacaba su crema labial. Con mucha exageración humectó sus labios y los oprimió con firmeza. Los hermosos ojos de él no podían dejar de mirarla. Yo deseaba gritar y sacudirlo para hacerlo despertar. ¡Esa mujer es una farsa! Detrás de su exterior de reina de belleza sólo existe un espacio vacío y desperdiciado.

'Algún día nos salvaremos el uno al otro, juré en silencio. En una forma poco convencional, somos muy se-mejantes. Ambos tenemos una extrema necesidad de ser rescatados de un mundo de fantasía. Esto, por sí solo, cons-tituye una base para construir una relación.'

Esta noche podría ir a Wal-Mart y comprar un tinte para el cabello y crema labial. O, tal vez, buscar en el centro co-mercial hasta que encuentre la blusa que ella usaba. Debería aprovechar el clima veraniego y broncearme la piel. En lugar de eso, terminaré haciendo la tarea.

No, hoy voy a practicar: practicaré pararme derecha, con los hombros hacia atrás, levantar el mentón y sonreír. Así, mañana, tal vez, él me pregunte la respuesta número doce... y mi nombre.
