Jack Canfield
“Each day is an adventure in discovering the meaning of life. It is each little thing that you do that day - whether it be spending time with your friends, running in a cross-country meet or just simply staring at the crashing ocean- that holds the key to discovering the meaning of life. I would rather be out enjoying these things than pondering them. We may never really discover the meaning of life, but the knowledge we gain in our quest to discover it is truly more valuable. ”
Jack Canfield, Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul II
“You don't have to get it perfect, you just have to get it going. Babies don't walk the first time they try, but eventually they get it right”

“Her essay about the wedding ring was short. Kerr wrote: "Things are just things - they have no power to hurt or to heal. Only people can do that. And we can all choose whether to be hurt or healed by the people who love us."
That was all.

Jack Canfield, Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul II
“There is no right reaction. There is only your reaction.”
Jack Canfield, Chicken Soup for the Soul
“Decide what you want. Believe you can have it. Believe you deserve it and believe it’s possible
for you. And then close your eyes and every day for several minutes, and visualize having what
you already want, feeling the feelings of already having it. Come out of that and focus on what
you’re grateful for already, and really enjoy it. Then go into your day and release it to the
Universe and trust that the Universe will figure out how to manifest it. “Jack Canfield”
Jack Canfield
“As you take a few minutes each day to quiet your mind, you will discover a nice benefit: your everyday, "ordinary" life will begin to seem far more extraordinary. Little things that
previously went unnoticed will begin to please you. You'll be more easily satisfied, and happier all around. Rather than focusing on what's wrong with your life, you'll find yourself thinking about and more fully enjoying what's right with your life. The world won't change, but your perception of it will. You'll start to notice the
little acts of kindness and caring from other people rather than the negativity and anger.”
Jack Canfield
“You only have control over three things in your life-the thoughts you think, the images you visualise, & the actions you take.”

“Sometimes you dance with a partner, and sometimes you dance alone. But the important thing is to keep dancing.”
Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Kimberly Kirberger, Chicken Soup for the Single's Soul
“Our job is not to figure out the 'how'. The 'how' will show up out of the commitment and believe in the 'what”
Jack Canfield
“If you get clear on the what, the how will be taken care of.”

Jack Canfield, How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be: The 25 Principles of Success
“The Rules For Being Human 1. You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period of this time around. 2. You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called Life. Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or think them irrelevant and stupid. 3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial and error: Experimentation. The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately “works.” 4. A lesson is repeated until learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can then go on to the next lesson. 5. Learning lessons does not end. There is no part of life that does not contain its lessons. If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned. 6. “There” is no better than “here.” When your “there” has become a “here,” you will simply obtain another “there” that will again look better than “here.” 7. Others are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects something you love or hate about yourself. 8. What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours. 9. Your answers lie inside you. The answers to Life’s questions lie inside you. All you need to do is look, listen and trust. 10. You will forget all this. Chérie Carter-Scott”
Jack Canfield, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Stories to Open the Heart and Rekindle the Spirit
“You don’t want to get to the top of the ladder only to find out you had it leaning up against the wrong wall.”
Jack Canfield, Chicken Soup for the Soul
“Avoid Toxic People Until you reach the point in your self-development where you no longer allow people to affect you with their negativity, you need to avoid toxic people at all costs. You’re better off spending time alone than spending time with people who will hold you back with their victim mentality and their mediocre standards. Make a conscious effort to surround yourself with positive, nourishing, and uplifting people—people who believe in you, encourage you to go after your dreams, and applaud your victories. Surround yourself with possibility thinkers, idealists,”
Jack Canfield, The Success Principles: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be
“You must take responsibility for removing I can't from your vocabulary.”
