Animal Lover

Being an avid animal lover and activist for animal rights makes me incredibly aware of the number of animals that are dumped and end up in shelters or worse still put to sleep.... Breaks my heart.. Sadly Jack refers to getting rid of animals in his book and this did not go down very well with me and made it difficult to listen to the topic... No I did not enjoy

AHMAZING‼️

This is one if those books you will want to listen to every single month‼️ 😊🙏♥️

Some good principles, not great behaviour examples

I did not like and cound not finish the book for a few reasons:
1. Too blunt straightforward thinking, sometimes arrogant, advertises cruelty on animals (throw away your dog). Poor examples of why people often have problems
2. Clearly written by American who has no visa resrictions and even not considering it in his speach. Such as, if you are not super rich and want to live in anither country you have to be limited to certain recognised prifessions

initially worried

I was initially worried this book was outdated, but it's actually full of current information, even though it's written many many years ago.

Nope

Stopped listening after the whole 'you didn't leave after the first time he hit you, so now you're still being hit' in the section about how you "choose" your situation. Really?? Victim blaming in domestic violence??
This book is outdated and unhelpful. Getting a refund.

It's written, read and presented with very high vibes, even the interlude songs are high vibes. Very positive, reasoned, thoughtful, effective strategies. Has changed my life in 3 days, watching his YouTube channel too. also logical, easy to break down and do the strategies. Thanks to Mr Canfield for this help.

Love love it! Imagine most must book in self development in one 📚

Right so you are into self development and you might have read some other books before. But you are now looking for that extra to cement it all or you might not even have thought that.
This book is a homage to all previous books I have read and might read and is an amazing complied thought form by a gentle generous and well articulate well informed man, Jack Canfield. Thank you.
It’s a book with self helping tools that guide you to how to take control over your life - yes like so many other books - but this is a mix of différents schools and thoughts . Some people like X and some Y. Why does some talk to us and others not. They are very often equally equipped to teach us the meaning of life. I just happen to really like Jacks way of sharing and thinking about it all. I feel that I have a bit of Tony Robbins , mixed up with the Secret - adding in Some Abraham Hicks - real woo, and some Pranic healing - Indian energy healing - all in one - said so all can get it. Not mainstream so it’s dull but not to out there weird so it puts one off. For me it makes total sense . I love Tony Robbins and I am a firm believer of NLP and I also love the teachings of Master Choa Kok Sui, as well as so many other great men and women thinkers out there. For me - Jack has his own unique way of sharing his message and teaching and it’s very approachable and I just love it. I recommend this book to all who wants to go a bit further on the self development path! Good look ! To the moon!

Wants you to buy his bloody book to get "all" the principles

You buy this and are immediately short changed. Apparently, only "most" of his so-called success principles are on this audio. To get all of them you have to also buy his book! Carp. I'm going to return this half cocked audio.
