A Day with Jack Canfield (Who wants Chicken Soup?)

Posted on: October 4, 2006

Hah! I never thought I could actually see the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” guy in person, lest snatch him for like ten minutes for an ambush interview and have a picture taken with him…

Thanks to my boss [on such rare occassions] I get to attend Jack Canfield’s “Personal Excellence & Organizational Success” seminar this morning. Not that I’m a seminar or a conference sucker… in fact there were only two occassions when I attended such that I didn’t snooze while at it… this one and Jim Clark’s Breakthrough Sessions Seminar, which I attended last July. That guy was also really funny, you’d literally roll down your seats from too much laughing… a very good speaker.

Anyway, Mr. Canfield was super — his talk was sooo motivating and I did actually enjoyed listening to it. I feel like I learned a lot and mushy as it may sound… I feel renewed (naks!) My goal: to collect all the books he authored… hehe… I wish… his book’s pretty expensive but I think they’re all worth the investment.

So it was funny, it was like an adrenaline rush… the 5 or 10 minute ambush interview actually turned into a good conversation, not scripted (take note). All in all, it’s a nice (kind’a surreal) experience…

These are some of the quotes (mantras) Mr. Canfield mentioned during the seminar which really stuck to my head: (Sorry, can’t remember who exactly said them…)

Habits are only enough to get you what you’re getting.

If it’s meant to be, it’s up to me.

You can’t hire people to do your push-ups for you.

Clarity is power.

When they say no, say NEXT!

What you put out is what you gonna get.

Small dreams attract small people; big dreams attract big ones.

Winners are those who make a habit of doing things that losers are uncomfortable doing.

Oh what the heck… go for it anyway!

Ask… Ask… Ask… Ask… Ask… Ask… Ask…

And my most favorite?

Some will, Some won’t, So what, Someone’s waiting!
