Like a lot of mums, after having my daughters I went through a period of not reading books at all. Actually, that’s incorrect – I read some books but most were parenting manuals, and the rest were things similar to The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Five or six years ago, my love for books was reignited after I joined a book club at my local library. Since then, I’ve bought even more books than vintage clothes – and God knows I really like vintage. The truth remains; I’m a sucker for books.
Last week, on Super Soul Sunday, I watched Oprah interview Jack Canfield co-creator of the Chicken Soup For The Soul books about his success and how he has helped others get from where they are to where they want to be. It was what I needed to hear… so it made sense for me to buy one of his books. Before the end of the interview, I’d ordered The Success Principles.
Why did I order this book? Ashamedly, I have a dream but I’ve always made excuses not to go for it. Plus, I don’t know how to. From what Jack was saying, I figured out he’s the man to help get rid of my fears, excuses and get me to where I want to be.
I’ve not finished the book yet – it’s going to take a few weeks to because I have to think the principles over and complete the many exercises in the book. But I’d still like to recommend The Success Principles to you. The few chapters I have read have changed my thinking about success and dreams. For example, I now know to take 100% responsibility for my life. This is common sense isn’t it, but most of us don’t. This book has made me realise that I’m responsible for the quality of the life I live – not my parents, not my past, not my husband and definitely not my daughters.
I’ve also learned that the energy used to dream a small dream is the same energy we use to dream a big dream, so why dream small? And why do we let dream-stealers talk us out of our visions?
The Success Principles is a must read for all mums, especially if like me you want to know how to get from where you are now to where you want to be. I’m going to stop rambling on about The Success Principle but if you are a mum and you’re want to treat yourself to something today, buy this book. It’s mind changing.
Shop The Success Principles.
