Become an Inverse Paranoid

What? What is an Inverse Paranoid? ... I know I initially thought the same but what Jack Canfield is talking about here (and what I just love) is 'looking for the lemonade in lemons'.

This is the topic for Chapter 6 of Jack Canfield's book:

This quote from Stan Dale sums up the chapter beautifully: 'I've always been the opposite of a paranoid. I operate as if everyone is part of a plot to enhance my well-being." The ultimate in attitude, mind over matter, mindset - whatever label you want to call it - it is the power of positive thinking. There are a variety of lovely stories to illustrate this point in this chapter which I encourage you to take the time to read. Again one of the shorter (faster read) chapters - so no excuses.

Here is the author explaining one of these stories himself:

Believe in Yourself

This is an attitude that you commit to daily. Specifically you need to believe you are capable, you have what it takes to fulfill your dreams, goals and aspirations. This is a choice. Your choice.

How liberating and daunting is that at the same time? This is YOUR responsibility. But what I say is - YOU'VE GOT THIS!

What this means is... are you committed to doing the study, practice, work to get to where you want to be? How important are your goals to you? What does it mean to you to achieve them?

Again a 'no hiding' topic for this Chapter 5 of Jack Canfield's book,  The Success Principles(TM) - 10th Anniversary Edition: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be

Why these daily posts for each chapter of The Success Principles?  5 days ago it started as me simply sharing I was going to re-read this book for myself. I had no intention of writing a post for each chapter and I hadn't made the decision to read a chapter every day - after all their are 60+ chapters. But after the first day, I got thinking and thought why not? Often people say to me face-to-face that they enjoy following, reading and sharing the positive affirmations and posts I share so I thought why keep this process to myself.

I encourage you that if you've read this far to comment either here or on my posts on Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter to share your journey of this book and/or topics. Let's do this together. So... Let's Go!

Believe it's Possible - You Get What You Expect

Some chapters of The Success Principles(TM) - 10th Anniversary Edition: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be by Jack Canfield are longer than others and take more time. this Chapter 4 is a nice shorty.

Chapter 3 was definitely longer to read and longer to action. With this chapter 4, it may take a short time to read but is it potentially a lifetime to implement? Depending on your mindset really. This absolutely is where it is mind over matter - You Get What You Expect. Goodness that can be as confronting as chapter 1 - to take 100% responsibility.

Therefore, although you know where you want to be in all aspects of your life as you uncovered and documented in chapter 3 but do you expect those results?

Yes this is some stare at yourself in the mirror time and be honest with yourself. Confronting yourself now will save you many years of self-sabotage and/or procrastination.

What you say to yourself is your decision but begin with 'I've got this'

I Want - Decide What You Want

This is the key to all your success - to commit to what you want. I recommend visualising and dreaming as big as you can - you can always chunk down into manageable goals over a timeline. But find some time (at least 30 mins) and answer I want to the following areas of your life:

  • Finances
  • Ideal Job or Career or Business
  • Recreation Time
  • Health and Well being
  • Relationships
  • Personal growth and development and
  • Contribution to Community

Take 100% Responsibility for Your Life

Chapter 1 of Jack Canfield's book The Success Principle is all about taking 100% responsibility. A great chapter. However, not for the faint hearted, depending on 'where you're at' in life, this maybe a confronting read.

Back from a break - re-reading Jack Canfield's The Success Principles

If we did all the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves


Thomas A. Edison 

Hello again!

Yes I'm back, and goodness it's almost the end of March. So where have I been?

Still where I've always been however just taking some time out for myself and my son to regroup and reassess what I was doing in life and business.

But I have missed you all and sharing my experiences in both life and business. Thus a much needed blog post.

Back in 2009 I was researching new books and new knowledge of how to better myself and my life. One of the many sources of great information was a well known book 'The Success Principles' by Jack Canfield. During my annual New Year home and office de-clutter, I rediscovered this book. Since January I have been reading random chapters from the book as I read the complete book from start to finish back when I first bought the book almost 8 years ago. However now I have decided to re-read it cover to cover.

So here is an invitation for you, why not join me on this journey of rediscovery for myself and either the same for you or a first time experience of reading the book.

Let me know if you're in by commenting or contact me.

The first step is... you will need a copy of the book:

Now make a regular time you will commit to reading a chapter of this book - daily? weekly?

Do share your commitment with us:

And Let's Go!
