IBP#010: Jack Canfield on The Success Principles [Podcast]

This is one of the preliminary episodes of the newly re-launched Indie Business Podcast. To stream or download more recent episodes of the podcast at this blog, click here or you can download it on iTunes. Thank you for visiting!

I have been podcasting since before podcasting was a word. I hosted my first online radio show on September 21, 2005, but until recently, all the technological pieces have not played well together. Finally, technology has caught up with me and I can easily share my podcast with you here at the blog and on iTunes, so you never have to miss a show. In addition to new shows as they are produced, I publish previously recorded episodes like this one.


Today, I'm excited to share my February 13, 2006 interview with New York Times best selling author, Jack Canfield, who offers timeless success principles to empower you to improve your life and your business. Jack is the author of several books, including The Success Principles, and on this episode, we isolate some of the principles that apply to your life as an entrepreneur.

Episode 10 Show Notes

  1. What is success, and how do you achieve it? This was the first question I asked Jack, and his answer puts that ball squarely in your court. Enjoy Jack's take on success and how you can approach and achieve it on your own terms.
  2. The two success principles that always *always* work. Jack shares how to program your unconscious mind to achieve what you have set your sights on. I know that sounds all “woo woo,” but Jack describes it far better than I do, and gives a good example. These principles are achievable for everyone.
  3. How the three things you have *complete* control over can change your life. If you think there's little you can do to control the outcomes in your life, think again. Control of just these three things will empower you to change as many things as you'd like to change — for he better.
  4. The habit creates the reality. Jack shares specific things you can do on a consistent and habitual basis to improve your life so you have what it takes to manage and grow your business over the long haul.

Plus so much more, including ideas for setting prices for your speaking services, how to think out of the box when it comes to selling your products, and the “five-by-five” matrix to help you find and serve your perfect target customers.
