Spotlight On: Jack Canfield, Author & Leader

I’d like to give a big shout out to a great  public figure: Jack Canfield, a well-known Santa Barbarian, author, and inspiration to millions.
Jack went WAY out of his comfort zones and built a business which continues to inspire millions. Jack told me and other members of YPO a few years back that he got hundreds of rejections in the beginning. That some days he felt like he was the only person who believed in himself. Thank goodness he kept going in spite of discomfort and rejection.    
KUDOS to Jack for becoming one of the best-selling authors of all time, and most of all for the beautiful messages he constantly share through his work, his books and his programs. We can all learn from the tenacity and willingness to believe in himself from Jack and others who inspire with their deeds and their words. Your community might be on line or blended as with most of us.
Now is the time to get out of your comfort zone and give back in ways greater and more effectively than ever before. YOU will be the big-time winner here.
You will grow your skills and your network.

Better Skills + Stronger Network =   Greater Net worth

Like Jack says repeatedly in his good books "Key to Living," "Life Lessons," or the "Chicken Soup" series:

"Don't worry about failures; worry about the chances you miss when you don't even try."

"Most everything you want it out there waiting for you to ask. Everything you want it just outside your comfort zone."

“There are essentially two things that will make you wise -- the books you read and the people you meet.”
