The Success Principles ~ Closure

For the past few months I have been working through and sharing my thoughts on Jack Canfield's Success Principles on Mondays. It has been a great process, one that's really helped me hone some of my beliefs (some in synch and some in contrast to Canfield's writing). This week is principle 42: just say no and I have decided that my no is to continuing to the completion of the principles. I'm making this decision for a few reasons.

I've received some beautiful and encouraging emails and comments from people saying that what they enjoyed most about these posts was my perspective. Thank you so much for that. You're inspiring me to grow and consider what I would like to write about and share. And also, there is so much interesting in the world - so much to read, experience, share, try, that I'd like to make space for more, especially since there's 64 principles and that would be 5 more months!

So, if you've enjoyed reading about the concepts, I encourage you to pick up the book. There's lots of interest in it. And I hope that I can share more books, thoughts and explorations. I feel like I'm going through an amazing growth spurt so know there will be so much to share.

Hooray for you! The power of no!

I too look forward to learning about other authors and sources of inspiration from you!

Wow! I had no idea there were that many principles. I have enjoyed all your posts but actually I was wondering how many could possibly be left! Now I know...

Yes what I liked most was/is your perspective in what ever way you want to share it.

Good for you! Sometimes the best thing we can do for ourselves is to say NO to something. (I fell way behind in to catch up!) xoxo
