Announcing the NEW Success Principles: 10th anniversary edition (Plus, some free gifts for you!)

Jack-with-TSP10Ten years ago, I wrote a book that I hoped would change millions of lives around the globe.

That book was The Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be. As you probably know, the book became a New York Times bestseller and is now hailed as a “self-improvement classic.” It’s available in 108 countries and 30 languages – and yes, I’m honored to say that it has indeed changed millions of lives.

To celebrate the book’s 10-year milestone – and ensure that it continues to change the world for the better – I’m delighted to announce that we’re releasing an updated 10th anniversary edition that includes a ton of new stories and new success principles to help you achieve even more success in today’s online world.

Read on to discover what’s new in this updated edition – and why these success principles are more important than ever in 2015.

How Success Has Changed in the Digital Age

Back when I wrote The Success Principles back in 2004, blogs were only just becoming “a thing.” MSN was the biggest brand on the Internet, Yahoo was more popular than Google, and Facebook didn’t exist yet.

Clearly a lot has changed since then!

The Digital Revolution has irrevocably transformed the world we live in. There is such an overwhelming amount of out there – not to mention endless distraction in the form of cute animal videos, meaningless celebrity gossip, time-sucking game apps, and pointless personality quizzes (I don’t care which Harry Potter character I am!) – and if you’re not careful, you can drown in it.

To succeed in today’s connected world, you need to take a more diligent approach to your time management, information management, and life management. You must be able to distinguish between information that’s interesting but ultimately irrelevant – and information that you can act on to create more positive results in your life and business.

That’s why I thought it was essential to add a brand-new section to The Success Principles – with new success principles that teach you how to make today’s technology work for you, so you can find the information and resources that will propel you to a higher level of success and help you create a dedicated community of supporters who will share your message with the world.

Here’s what you’ll discover in this new section:

  • SUCCESS PRINCIPLE 63: Master the Technology You Need

Learn how to eliminate digital distraction from your life – and limit your technology use only to those tools and resources that propel you closer to achieving your ideal life. You’ll get tips on how to maximize your online productivity while protecting yourself against potential security threats.

  • SUCCESS PRINCIPLE 64: Brand Yourself with an Online Persona

Successful people know they have to carefully manage their online persona in order to present a positive image to the world. Discover what your online presence says about you – and how you can master the art of appearing competent, authoritative, and respected in all your online interactions.

  • SUCCESS PRINCIPLE 65: Use Social Media in a Way That Enhances Your Reputation


    Learn how to use social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram to advance your expertise, enhance your own personal brand, and attract followers who will stay engaged – and pass your message onto their friends, colleagues, and family.
  • SUCCESS PRINCIPLE 66: Use the Exponential Power of Crowdfunding


    The Internet is that it makes it easy for creators to find people who will support their vision and give them the funds they need to get their project off the ground. Learn expert strategies on how to generate excitement for your idea and grow a huge customer base for your product – before you create it.
  • SUCCESS PRINCIPLE 67: Connect with People Who Can Expand Your Vision

Success is a team sport – and the more people you have on your team, providing you with the expertise, resources, and support you need to achieve your most ambitious goals, the faster you’ll be able to create your ideal life. Discover how to use the Internet to build your network of supporters and create a success team that will help you achieve your goals faster.

TSP-196x280Why The Success Principles Are More Important than Ever

Thanks to the Internet, it’s easier than ever before to find the information, resources, and support you need to achieve your loftiest goals and create your ideal life. And it’s easier than ever to start your own business and sell to customers all over the globe – or become an entrepreneur and share your passion with the world.

But with the overwhelming amount of information available to us – and the endless number of digital distractions – we have bigger challenges facing us as well.

That’s why The Success Principles matter now more than ever. By following these time-tested principles, you will be able to clearly define your path to success and overcome all the obstacles – digital as well as those in the offline world, including your own head! – that are holding you back from creating the life of your dreams.

Attention Trainers: Could You Be Living AND Teaching The Success Principles?

Jack Canfield liveOne of the most powerful ways to learn anything is to teach it to others.

It forces you to clarify your ideas, confront inconsistencies in your own thinking, and more closely walk your talk. But most importantly, it requires you to read, study and speak the information over and over again. The resulting repetition reinforces your own learning.

When I launched my Train-the-Trainer program five years ago, my goal was to develop the next generation of human-potential trainers. Today, my goal is to eventually foster over one million people worldwide in teaching The Success Principles to others.

Could you be one of the 100 “insiders” I’ll work with next year to help achieve this goal?

Think about whom you might teach these principles to. Could you teach seminars locally? Can you offer a class at the local high school or community college? Could you lead a workgroup at the office to incorporate these principles on the job or in your department?

Or could you boost your existing career as a professional trainer?

If you can envision yourself as a dynamic and powerful presenter, training others in my proven success principles, click here to apply for my 2015 Train-the-Trainer Certification Program!

You don’t have to be a master of implementing these principles to lead a group, since I’ll help you become a master trainer as part of this immersive professional program.

Imagine the workgroups, clubs, sales teams, women’s groups, entrepreneurs, or companies where people could be working together to support each other in actively living these principles. The results would be miraculous. And YOU can be the person that makes that happen.

Exciting news – a Dragon will be joining us at my private retreat in Italy this July!  That’s right, I said “Dragon.”  I’m talking about Sean Gallagher, one of Ireland’s top entrepreneurs and finalist for the Ernst Young Entrepreneur of the Year award.

Here he is:

Sean is best known as co-founder and former CEO of Ireland’s largest home technology company, Smarthomes.  He was also a popular investor on Dragons’ Den – an International version of the U.S. television show, Shark Tank – and is known as a champion for start-ups and emerging entrepreneurs.


Over the last 20 years, Sean has successfully trained and mentored hundreds of start-ups and emerging entrepreneurs.   And now he’s going to share his brilliant business mind with the 26 participants who attend my private luxury retreat in Italy this July!

I’ve asked Sean to come on board as a facilitator because many of the registered participants have said they want to focus on growing their business during the four-day retreat.  I know that Sean will give them invaluable support that will launch them toward achieving their most ambitious goals.


There are only 4 spots left at the retreat – and I suspect with this announcement those spots are going to fill very quickly.

“How to be a More Effective Trainer, Speaker or Coach”

The following is a 70-minute audio recording from a recent “Ask Jack Canfield” call you won’t want to miss.  I received hundreds of questions about how to be more effective speaker, trainer and coach – and answered as many as humanly possible on the call.

Whether you’re “officially” a speaker, trainer, coach or consultant … or you’re just getting started, I encourage you to listen to the recording. But it’s really for anyone for parents, leaders, service professionals, and any  manager in a corporate or non-profit setting.

I want to share what I’ve learned over the years because I know the incredible power that coaches, speakers, trainers and consultants have in helping other achieve their full potential – and the more effective you are, the more people you’ll be able to help. To download the audio file and listen from your ipod or other device, right click here.


Here are the 10 questions I answered during the call: 

  • I’ve just made the decision to become a life coach. I have a book in progress and also plan a speaking career. What one key thing should I be doing that will help me be successful in all three related endeavors? 
  • What is the best source of training for someone that wants to be a public speaker but has never done it before (and is scared stiff but wants to overcome the fear) – 
  • What are the key strategies a beginner could employ to be effective in his training sessions?
  • How do I learn how to deliver a clear flowing message with impact so I can truly change people’s lives? How do I learn how to engage an audience and keep their attention to maximize mine and their time? I study everyday and I really enjoy it, however up to this point I could not stand up and deliver a full flowing message that made sense.
  • What tips do you have for someone who is standing in front of a room full of people and suddenly their mind just goes “blank” …. Has this ever happened to you ? and if so , what do you do ?
  • How do I best secure more speaking engagements? What’s the best way to market myself as a speaker?
  • Do you have an exercise that can make people ‘feel’ the power of believing in themselves and their abilities and how that can empower them to reach their full potential and realize their dreams? ‘Saying’ it is one thing, ‘proving’ it or ‘making people ”feel” it’ is another.
  • How do I avoid overwhelming an audience with too much information?
  • What is the single most important actionable thing to do in a speech to move people to take action?
  • Jack, you often quote a lot of interesting research studies in your workshops. How do you stay on top of all the latest research? Are there specific journals that you check weekly, or is there some other way you find out about these studies?
