Jack Canfield Speaks at National Assoc of Realtors about Success Principles

Jack Canfield Speaks at National Association of Realtors National Conference 2011 in Anaheim, CA

Jack Canfield, Bestselling Co-Author of Chicken Soup for the Soul and The Success Principles spoke at NAR about Success

While covering the National Association of Realtors, Commercial Division National Conference in Anaheim, CA I ran into Jack Canfield. Last place I thought I would get an interview with Jack.

Jack was invited to speak to thousands of realtors about success principles and especially about not allowing the economy and current state of the industry, to be an excuse to fail.

Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen cocreated The Chicken Soup for the soul series®. Jack now has over 40 New York Times Bestsellers. An internationally renowned corporate trainer, keynote speaker, and popular radio and TV talk show guest, he lives in Santa Barbara, California.

Jack I know you were running late so I really appreciate the gracious time you gave me.- JW

Jack Canfield at NAR Conference Talks About Success PrinciplesAffectionately known as “America’s #1 Success Coach,” Jack has studied and reported on what makes successful people different. He knows what motivates them, what drives them, and what inspires them. He brings this critical insight to countless audiences internationally—sharing his success strategies in the media, with companies, universities and professional associations.

His proven formula for success reached global acclaim with his most recent National Bestseller, The Success Principles™: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be.

His audio program, Maximum Confidence, has sold more than 350,000 copies through Nightingale-Conant alone. MORE….

In this interview Jack talks about his new book he wrote with William Gladstone, called The Golden Motorcycle Gang……

The Golden Motorcycle Gang
Have you ever asked yourself why you are on planet Earth? And what the ultimate purpose for your life might be? Well, Jack Canfield asked himself this very question and came up with a surprising answer—part of which included a vision revealing that he is part of a “Golden Motorcycle Gang”—a gang whose intent is to have fun, but also to make significant contributions to the well-being of humanity.

During a joyful dinner many years ago in Santa Barbara, California, Jack told his friend William Gladstoneabout the Gang. Upon hearing this account, William had an epiphany that Jack’s story held a powerful underlying truth not only explaining Jack’s true purpose, but William’s as well.

For more than ten years, William encouraged Jack to write a book based on the story of the Gang, so they have now collaborated on this work to show you its relevance to this critical moment in the history of human civilization . . . and also to you, personally. As you read, you will be introduced to some of the extraordinary members of the Golden Motorcycle Gang, including visionary thinkers such as Barbara Marx Hubbard, the originator of the concept of Conscious Evolution.

The mystery and adventure inherent in this book reveals that there is now the opportunity for all of us on planet Earth to make a quantum leap in real time toward choosing the actual course of our evolution. Along the way, we are meant to experience the joy that comes from recognizing who we really are.

Rick Frishman at Author 101 Helping New and Seasoned Authors and Writers Build Huge Success


Bookmark and Share I have been so blessed to be able to have gotten to know Rick. He always answers his own phone and takes the time to listen. I called Rick and asked if he had any media coverage at his Author 101 program in Los Angeles. Now Rick really does not need press as his programs. They are constantly sold out, but Rick, always about gratitude, graciousness and never about lack mindedness, invited me to the event with an all access pass.

I will never forget the day I got to sit down with Rick and his lovely wife for lunch. What a treat, Rick is hilarious and great fun to be around and as you will see from many of the interviews, his authors, agents and vendors really love Rick and Author 101.

Rick takes a moment at the end of the 4 day event to come and talk with me about the event, the programs they had and some new programs coming up. I of course, got some of the greatest interviews ever from authors, agents, vendors and more. Thank You Rick .- JW

One Fun Night with Motivation and Food for the Soul – Featuring Conscious Evolution

Empower 180 – Empowering Women in Business

Les Brown and JW Najarian

One incredible day and night, in September of 2010, I I got a chance to hang out at Empower 180 for the kickoff of their national tour. You can go to www.Empower180.com for more information and to see where they will be next.

What an incredible event that almost no one went to. I am not sure if it was the marketing or if people are just giving up? Actually I visited another event later in the evening at UCLA at Royce Hall and the event was a sell-out so I have to believe it is marketing.

Anyway I really hope they do better going forward as this is an incredible lineup of speakers.

  • Les Brown
  • Christine Comaford
  • Barbara DeAngelis
  • Garret Gunderson
  • Kevin Harrington
  • Chris Howard
  • Lynn Rose
  • Bill Walsh

and so many more..

Chris Howard and JW Najarian

These events are so powerful as they help us find out who we are and where we are going and they help us ask the questions of ourselves that we need to ask and many of the speakers motivate us to new highs and many others give us answers to the big questions. Especially now we need to get together with other like minded business people and entrepreneurs, because we cannot expect different results from doing the same thing over and over.

Many of my colleagues give me a hard time for going to these events, but I not only owe my life to my mentors, but owe my growth to allowing myself to be open to being on the learning line of my life.

Take a chance and change your life. Plug in, read, go to webinars and seminars… grab the great info and don’t buy anything if you don’t want to, but do put yourself out.

Kevin Harrington and JW Najarian

I was really lucky to find out from my good friend Lisa Schneiderman, that another event was going on at Royce Hall, UCLA campus. After getting the chance to say hello to Les Brown, and Garret Gunderson, I got a chance to meet Kevin Harrington who you may know from Shark Tank. This guy has sold over 4 billion dollars worth of products and discovered Billy Mays. This is a guy I am guessing you would like to get the chance to spend a minute or two with. I got to sit down and watch someone pitch him a product and then got my picture with him. Nice guy.

I took off to Royce Hall, but got there late so I missed Deepak, but did get to see many others speak to conscious Evolution. An incredible program.

A Call to Action: Global Thought Leaders Address Global Concerns

Best-selling authors and Evolutionary luminaries, Deepak Chopra, Jack Canfield, Gregg Braden, Michael Bernard Beckwith, Jean Houston, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Debbie Ford and Bruce Lipton join other world-renowned thought leaders to ignite conscious action for a healthier planet and more peaceful human existence. The gulf oil spill, the economic meltdown, combative political views in our 24/7 world…we’re on a collision course of our own making unless we approach the mounting concerns that we face as a global community.

Siedah Garrett who is famous for writing “Man in the Mirror” and then getting to go on stage and sing it with Michael Jackson stopped by to sing a song she wrote for the event and along with the Agape Church choir. She also sang the most moving version of Man in the Middle. Here it is on YouTube. I only got the end. Awwww

The day was full of passion and great information and the night was filled with hope and the dream of a better world going forward.

Thank you Lisa Schneiderman of Schneiderman PR Firm and also my hang buddy Aggie Kobrin of Off Hollywood Media you both ROCK!
