You Are Here: Success Stories

“Dear Mr. Canfield:

I just wanted to write and thank you for the opportunity to participate in your coaching program. I am just now finishing my 12th week of coaching. I read your book “The Success Principles” and it really resonated with me. It was absolutely exactly what I needed to hear at the time. I was so impressed with the book that I downloaded the audio program as well and listened to it over and over. I went online at one point to look at your website and noticed that you offered coaching in the Success Principles and took the opportunity to join the coaching program.

I can honestly say that the coaching program has helped me really learn and utilize the principles in your book. There is a huge difference between reading the principles and actually implementing and living the principles! I have found the coaching program to be excellent in helping me really practice the principles in my own life.

All of the modules in the coaching were very valuable for me but there were a few that really helped propel me further down the road to success. The process of deciding on a breakthrough goal, developing the individual goals and the steps to achieve those goals has been a great learning experience for me. I spent over 60 hours if not more working through this process! Having a coach walk me through the process has been invaluable. I can honestly say that just reading about breakthrough goals and actually taking the time to formulate and create a plan around the goal are two very different things. I am so glad that I took the time to detail it out. Now that I have a course of action toward meeting my goal I feel so much more confident moving forward.

Another module that had a profound effect on me was the module where you objectively look at the results you are getting in each area of your life and honestly evaluate the beliefs you hold relating to the results you are getting. Wow – what an eye opener for me! I knew I wasn’t happy with the results I was getting but I didn’t realize that the vast majority of the beliefs I was holding were negative and focused on what I didn’t want. That one distinction has been life changing! I have completely changed my focus from lack and disparity to abundance, focusing on what I want and looking for the opportunity in each situation. It has really made a huge difference in how I approach both business and life in general. If the only benefit I received from coaching was this one insight it would have been worth the investment alone.

My coach has been excellent! He has been able to provide me with objective feedback that has been extremely valuable to me. It has been so helpful to have a coach to identify areas and patterns that I was unaware of or didn’t want to admit to. Some of the patterns that my coach has identified for me have been my need to “release my brakes” and go full force, to take action rather than planning, planning, planning, to move forward with certainty and faith, to commit 100% to my goals instead of saying I will give it a try and see what happens, to take consistent action instead of start and stop action, and to balance my work and personal life. I am grateful for my coach’s great direction and insight.

Overall, I am very happy with my coaching experience. I have had the opportunity to change my mindset and focus for the positive which will benefit me greatly now and in the future. I have learned a great process of taking any huge goal and breaking it down into manageable pieces which is invaluable. As a result of my coaching I am feeling more confident, focused on abundance and feeling more grateful for the opportunities in my life that have brought me to where I am right now. I feel confident in moving forward with my business as well as personal goals with certainty and faith.

Where do I go from here? Well, I will continue to utilize the principles of course. I have decided to move my business in a different area targeting a different market. I will be attending my first trade show in May so I am excited about that. I have identified that I will benefit from further education in sales and marketing so I have enrolled in a program that will teach me both. I have a clearly defined breakthrough goal and I am confidently moving forward toward achieving it!

Thanks again for taking the time to share your success principles and valuable insights!”
