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.


Learn how YOU can become “one in a million” and join us on our quest to change the world…


Everyone has the capacity to be a teacher.

It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do – whether you’re a corporate office worker, business owner, freelancer, stay-at-home parent, mechanic, or whatever – by mastering the Success Principles and learning how to teach them to others, you can radically change people’s lives for the better (including your own).

Here’s your chance to shine your light – and make the world a brighter place. Won’t you join us?



An Inside Look at my Private Retreats – New Video!

My team recently put together a video which gives an “inside look” into the world of my private retreats!

Often times, words cannot describe the full experience of  attending one my retreats . It’s so much more than what you learned, who you met, and what you got out of it. It’s how you FELT while you were there… how you were never the same again.

So, with my annual luxury retreat coming up in Italy this summer, I wanted to share a highlight video from our last luxury retreat in California. It’s the closest I can get to sharing the feeling with you of what it’s like to be with me at one of my private retreats.

In this video, you’ll see parts of the curriculum of the retreat, including:

  • Mastermind Sessions
  • Guided Meditation
  • One-on-One Strategy Sessions with me personally
  • ….And some fun activity time which we always include

The greatest joy in my life is to work directly with people one-on-one or in small groups and witness their transformations firsthand. We have been doing these private retreats since 2010 and each one is more powerful than the last. 

I would be honored to work with you at this year’s upcoming retreat in Tuscany, Italy!
For more information or to apply click here.

OR, call my Program Director, Alice Refauvelet, at 805-881-5181 and she can answer any questions you may have about the program.

I hope to meet you in Italy soon!

VIDEO #3: How to speak to the 5 dimensions of a person’s being

Welcome to the third video in my series about the power of Transformational Training!

Here’s the first two in case you missed them:

  1. What Does It Mean to be a Transformational Trainer (19 minutes)
  2. What Makes Transformational Training So Powerful? (12 minutes)

In today’s 17-minute video, you’ll learn more about teaching to the 5 dimensions of a person. This makes it possible for your students or audience to experience the power of your teaching in all aspects of their minds, bodies, and spirits, so the message hits home more deeply and it’s easier for them to incorporate it into their mindsets and lives.

These are incredibly valuable skills that can be used in any teaching situation – in front of a class, on-stage, coaching personal clients, training staff, consulting for large organizations – even parenting your teenagers and young children!

If you’d like to learn more about how to get your message across on a deeper and more fundamental level, check out the video:  

NOTE: These are the exact training methods I teach students in my world-renowned Train the Trainer program.

VIDEO #2: The difference between Transformational Trainers and Talking Heads

In my last blog post, I shared a short video taken from an hour-long interview I did last year on the topic of Transformational Training – and what it means to teaching people experientially from the inside out.

Here’s the next video in the series… It’s called “What Makes Transformational Training So Powerful” and will help you understand why this kind of experiential teaching methodology is so much more powerful than other teaching, training, or speaking styles.

(Hint: it’s because it involves having a system that actually moves people from point A to point B.)

The video is only 12 minutes long but well worth your time. If you’re a speaker, teacher, trainer, coach or consultant who’s interested in knowing how to create profound and lasting change in people, I encourage you to check it out!

NOTE: This is the same methodology I teach to my students in my Train the Trainer Certification Program. If you’d like to learn how to become a Transformational Trainer – and take your own speaking, teaching, or training career to the next level – I’m accepting a new group of students who want to become Certified to teach my Success Principles and join the ranks of the next generation of Human Potential Trainers.

VIDEO #1: How to inspire people on a profoundly deep level by teaching powerful “a-ha!” moments

This one’s for all of you speakers, trainers, teachers, coaches, and consultants out there…

Last year I sat down with my friend Steve Harrison for a special Live Stream event on the topic of Transformational Training, which is the cornerstone of my own personal teaching philosophy. It’s a powerful experiential methodology that I have developed over the course of my 40-year teaching, speaking, and training career, and it’s what I teach to students in my Train the Trainer program.

The reason this methodology is so effective is because it makes it possible for your students or audience to EXPERIENCE the full impact of your teaching – mind, body and soul.

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be releasing a series of short videos from this event that will teach you more about Transformational Training – and what makes it so much more powerful than other teaching or speaking styles.

 Here’s the first one – a  19-minute video called, “What Does It Mean to Be a Transformational Trainer?

If you’d like to become a world-class speaker or trainer – and create profound lasting positive change in your students or audience – I encourage you to check it out!

By watching this video, you will learn…

  • The kinds of profound shifts Transformational Trainers are able to create in their students or audience
  • The difference between external motivation and internal inspiration (and the time when I thought Deepak Chopra was going to diss me on national TV!)
  • How to teach “a-ha!” experiences that will inspire people to take ACTION and change their lives for the better
  • The difference between simply telling people what to do and helping them EXPERIENCE the truth of your teaching in their minds, bodies, and spirits
  • How one of my students – a kindergarten teacher – totally transformed her life and launched the first TEDX event in India – and who is now the top Transformational Trainer coach in her country!
  • How another one of my successful Train the Trainer graduates is using my Canfield training methodology to transform the lives of young people across all of Mexico
  • … and more!

Video: Unleash the Power of Goal Setting (Part 6 of 6)



Hi, it’s Jack Canfield here with another Success Principles tip for creating the life you want… and today’s principle is…

Unleash the Power of Goal Setting

You know, experts on the science of success know the brain is a goal-seeking organism. Whatever goal you give to your subconscious mind, the brain will actually start looking for information, for resources, and for opportunities and other ways to achieve the “want” you have identified. While this may sound like an impossibility given your current situation or circumstances, we’ve seen countless individuals “suddenly” get what they want — often from a source or opportunity that already existed in their life or sphere of influence, but that they had never instructed their brain to find it before.

Now to effectively engage the powers of your subconscious mind, a goal has to be specific and measurable. How much, by when. When there isn’t any criteria for measurement, it is simply something you want… we call it a wish, a preference, or a just good idea, but it does not register in the mind as a goal.

So you’ve got to decide what is it that you want…and then be specific. For example, “I want to lose weight” is vague. But it might become… “I will weigh 135 pounds by August 1st at 5 PM.” Or “I will increase my income to $80,000 year by December 31st at midnight.” Or I will live in a 35,000 square foot home, as big as the one Bill Gates has, by December 31st at midnight.” Now, notice in these examples, they all stated how much, by when. A specific amount that you can measure by a specific time that can be measured.

Now an easy place to start when you’re setting goals is to simply look at one area in your life that you would like to be different. It might be where there is something that is negative or disturbing that you’d like to eliminate, or it might be where there’s something missing that you’d like to create. Something you’d like more of…more money, more love, more time.

Now once you’ve decided what you want you can either do something about it…or not. It is your choice and you have responsibility for your choices.

But bear in mind that you have to be willing to change your behavior and do something different if you want to create a different outcome. You have to be willing to take whatever risks are necessary to get what you want.

Now, if you’ve already taken some initial steps in the right direction towards some of your goals,  now’s the time to decide what next steps do you need to take to keep moving you toward your chosen goal.

You see, it’s very liberating when you finally realize that you have the power to make your life whatever you want it to be. It’s a wonderful feeling knowing that your success does not really depend on anyone else.

So if you’re looking for one thing to do different today than you did yesterday, make it this: Commit to taking 100% responsibility for every aspect of your life. Then choose what it is you want. Decide what actions you’re going to need to take to create it and then take those actions one step at a time.

There are a lot of things you can learn to do to accelerate your success.  But the basics that will move you from where you are to where you want to be are simply this: Decide what you want, take control of your thoughts, visualize what you want, make a plan and then take action. Actualize your plan.

Start with these simple steps and I promise you that you’ll start seeing the results you want.

Video: Become an Inverse Paranoid (Part 5 of 6)



Hi, it’s Jack Canfield here with another Success Principles tip for creating the life that you want… and this principle is…

Become an Inverse Paranoid

My earliest mentor, W. Clement Stone, was once described as an “inverse paranoid.” Now what does that mean? It means, that instead of believing the world was plotting to do him harm, he actually chose to believe the world was always plotting to do him good. So, instead of seeing every difficult or challenging event as negative, he saw it for what it could be – something that was meant to enrich him, empower him or advance his causes.

Imagine how much easier it would be to succeed in life if you were constantly expecting the world to support you and bring you opportunity. Now successful people do just that – they look for the opportunity in everything, no matter how negative or challenging it might seem.

So, if you take the approach that everyone and everything that shows up in your life is there for a reason – and that the universe is moving you toward your ultimate destiny for learning, for growth, and for achievement, you will begin to see very event – no matter how difficult or challenging – as an opportunity for enrichment and advancement in your life.

So make a small sign or poster with the words “What’s the opportunity that this is?” and then place it on your desk or above your computer, or on your bathroom mirror, so you will constantly be reminded to look for the good in every event.

You might also want to start each day by repeating the phrase. “I believe the world is plotting to do me good today. I can’t wait to see what it is.”

And then look for the opportunities and miracles to unfold…because they will!

Video: Believe in Yourself (Part 4 of 6)



Hi, it’s Jack Canfield here with another Success Principles tip for creating the life you want… and this one is…

Believe in Yourself

If you are going to be successful in creating the life of your dreams, you have to believe that you are capable of making it happen. You have to believe that you have the right stuff, and you are able to pull it off.

Whether you call it self-esteem, self-confidence or self-assurance, it is a deep-seated belief that you have what it takes—the abilities, the inner resources, the talents and the skills to create your desired results.

Now, believing in yourself is simply an attitude. Believing in yourself is a choice.
You have to choose to believe that you can do anything you set your mind to — anything at all — because, in fact, you can.

It might help you to know that the latest brain research now indicates, with enough positive self-talk and positive visualization, combined with proper training, coaching, and practice, anyone can learn to do almost anything.

Now, I have interviewed thousands of successful people, and almost every one of them told me, “I was not the most gifted or talented person in my field, but I chose to believe that anything was possible. And because of that I studied, I practiced, and I worked harder than the others, and that’s how I got to where I am.”

If Ruben Gonzales, a 20-year old living in Texas, hot Texas, can take up the luge, which is a winter sport, and become an Olympic athlete…If Bill Gates who was a college drop-out, can become a billionaire…and Stephen J. Cannal a dyslexic student who failed three grades in school, can become a bestselling author and television producer…then you, too, can accomplish anything if you will simply believe it is possible.

So, make the decision right now to believe that you create all of your experiences, because you do! Let’s start creating the ones you want by believing you can.
Sounds a little strange, but accepting this level of responsibility is uniquely and inevitably empowering. It means you can do, change, and become anything at all.
