The only book on success you'll ever have to read is The Success Principles by Jack Canfield. It's the ultimate book about success and it pretty covers success from all angles and has everything you need to know about success within its pages. In the book however, Jack Canfield teaches that becoming successful is a life-long journey and requires a life-time commitment to studying success. So even though The Success Principles is the only book on success you'll ever need to read, you should further your education on success by reading as many books as you can about success.
One idea I really liked from either Jack Canfield or Brian Tracy is the fact that you should spend about an hour a day reading about success or watching videos about success or listening to audio books about success. It's all about flooding both your conscious and subconscious mind with ideas about how to become more successful in all areas of your life. You have to take responsibility for the type of information you are feeding your mind. That leads me to my next point:
Just like you have to be careful about the foods you put into your body to make sure you stay healthy, you have to be very careful about what kind of ideas you put into your mind through the books you read, the movies you watch etc... for good mental health and physical health and dare I say spiritual health too? That all depends on whether you are a spiritual person or not.
I highly recommend you read The Success Principles by Jack Canfield. That book really really inspired me to make changes in my own life and it got me through some really rough times. When you're reading this book, it really feels like Jack Canfield is by your side teaching you about success and guiding your way.
There are so many great books about success out there but how do you figure out which books you should read and which books you shouldn't read. What we're really after as human beings or rather what we should be after is success in all areas of our life. Many of us end up obsessing over 1 type of success and neglect the rest. To really become the best person you can be, you need to be tackling success from all angles. From your physical health, to your financial health, etc... etc... I personally focus on helping people reach their physical health and fitness goals through a product I promote. I promote it because I really believe in it.

One of the most important points in my opinion that Jack Canfield makes in his book The Success Principles(which has sold millions and millions of copies over the years) is that if you want success in an area of your life, you're going to need a game plan. For example, if one of your goals is success in general, the book The Success Principles will be your game plan. Another example: if you want physical health and fitness success, the product I promote in my signature box can be your game plan. Once you have a game plan, what you need to do is TAKE ACTION on that game plan. That's another one of the success principles Jack Canfield talks about in his book.
I've talked about how "Success leaves clues"(Tony Robbins) in books written by people who have reached success in specific areas. I've also talked about how essential it is to take action and lots of it if you want to be successful. I want to touch on some more of the success principles Jack Canfield talks about in his book.
One thing he talks about is goal setting. Any success book worth reading will at least mention goal setting because it's a crucial element to any plan for success. In another chapter, he also talks about how it's important to take your big overwhelming dreams and break them down into much smaller more manageable steps. This will make your life a lot easier.
One of the best tips I got out of his book is that you need to take 5 steps big or small every single day that will take you closer to your most important goals. This becomes a lot easier when you have broken down your big goals into smaller more manageable steps. Ever day, as long as you keep taking action, you will get closer and closer to your end goals.
Another important suggestion I got from the book is that you need to surround yourself with winners if you want to be successful. Ditch your loser friends and surround yourself with successful people. It sounds harsh but it's just reality. You are the 5 people you spend the most time with.
Another important thing I've learned about success over the years can be summed up by a quote from Albert Einstein: "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting another result". How does this apply to success? Well, for example, if what you're doing has not worked for you yet... you're not doing the right things. Let's use health and fitness or weight loss as an example. If you have been trying one approach to health/fitness/weight loss for a while now hoping it will work out for you but you're still not seeing results. It's time to move on and do something different. Don't stick to something that's not working for you. Try something new!
The book really covers success from many different angles. One thing he talks about is how you should invest in yourself by buying books/audiobooks/DVDs that will get you closer to your goals.
In the Success Principles, he also talks about Money quite a bit and financial success. Some of the money principles he covers include changing your beliefs when it comes to money. Make more money before you spend more money and ways you can do that and much more.
Thanks for reading.
