Twenty-plus years later, while experiencing major loss and change in my life, I found myself reflecting back over what I had experienced in the past, evaluating what I was experiencing in the present and comparing it to what I wanted to be experiencing in the years to come. At that point, I had done alot of self-help and personal growth work and was looking for something solid to work with. No more theory ... I was looking for motivation along with a practical, common sensical way to turn my dreams into reality and discover my life purpose and turn it into my life mission and my life work.
Ironically, at that time I had lunch with a friend who had been talking about a book she was reading. It was summer and I was planning lots of time to read, but I joked about being at the age of needing glasses in order to enjoy reading again. She suggested audiobooks as a way to cover me until my eye exam as well as a great way to multi-task. The teens I work with are always sporting iPods and MP3 players. I asked them if an audiobook could be put on an MP3 player. They joked about the real purpose ... music, of course ... but assured me they would help me download and sync my books after they helped me select my MP3 player .
I signed on to audible.com. Ironically, the feature book for that day was was Jack's book The Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be. I bought it on audio, had a teen help me download it onto an MP3 player and spent a wonderful week in NH kayaking on calm water while listening to material that now guides my life and supports me in helping others.
After I "read" the book and I completed his 30 day Success Principles audio course, Using the Law of Attraction I manifested the opportunity to spend a most amazing 7 days training with Jack at his Breakthrough to Success workshop.
As a result, my life, my perspective, the way I look at possibilities, opportunities, success, love and joy will never be the same. This work is truly transformational!
The Success Principles can serve as a foundation to help teens, adults, individuals and groups explore how our habits serve or don't serve us. They help us examine our personal, home, school and professional environments and support systems to see what's working and what's not working to create the results we want. It's helps us implement action plans and take inspired action that supports make lasting changes that create desired results and a life beyond what we ever thought possible.
