The spirit of this book is based on an invitation for us all to become members of this 'club' which has as its main aim for as many people across the globe to focus on world peace for one `magical' day next year. Whilst the aim is honorable, this is spoilt by the continual ego trip of the authors and constant endorsements of their friends in the club. Here's the thing....most members of my `Motorcycle Gang' strive to focus on the positive every day and do not feel the need to shout about this from the rooftops.
I loved the Success Principles and was so disappointed in this book!
Jack is so stuck on himself in this book---I don't know if you could find a bigger ego.
I still am not sure what the purpoose of this book was suppose to be?!
I think it was to help mankind---but you can only do this if you have lots and lots of money and can afford to stay in a super expensive hotel for the meetings, according to Jack.
If they cared so much about people and helping mnakind---wouldn't the money be better spent on a worthy cause or helping the poor?
I don't think I will buy another John Canfield book again!
Where is Canfield's 'no' person? I'll bet that Michael Jackson had more realism in his life. For a guy who makes a living bringing the world together, he doesn't seem to be able to get along with the women in his life, considering he's on his third wife.
But my very favorite part of this ode to Jack Canfield's ego, was the story of some New Age giant, who Canfield visited. Apparently this guy had an office that was so 'zen' that there was nothing on his desk but a phone, and nothing but a giant picture of a lion behind the guy. Well, Canfield was so intimidated that he couldn't speak, which is why the guru had such a sparse office, if you ask me. Being so unusual would shock anyone. The new age dude explained to Canfield that his speechlessness was because of the guru's high vibration which opened up so much space, that Canfield couldn't find his voice to fill it. I have to say that I too was stunned into speechlessness--at Canfield's gullibility.
But speaking of gullibility, I bought this book in hardback, at full price at a bookstore. I didn't look first on Amazon where I could have bought it for a buck-fifty used, which would have clued me into what a waste of money this book is. I'll be giving mine to the Goodwill, because even at $1.50, I would feel as though I were ripping someone off.
I couldn't tell if Jack Canfield really remembered being on a Golden Motorcycle before he came to earth, along with his fellow golden riders, set to save the rest of us from ourselves, or if it was just a literary device. All I can say is that, Canfield should stick to gathering other people's stories to continue to grow his wealth. Writing takes a great deal of humility and soul searching, and lots of time in the dark in the dark cave of your shadow, not blazing sunlight of your ego.
I love writers because they do the hard work of mining their own misery for their stories, not giving us all a trip through the Disney Land of their ego.
