Canfield and coauthors Mark Hansen and Les Hewitt recommend that we concentrate on our strengths, set goals, and focus on them. Canfield and Hansen created the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, which now has 27 titles and has sold 47.5 million copies. They have added new ingredients to their pot; their mix now includes a weekly television show, electronic games, and even refrigerator magnets. All the while, though, their basic stock has remained the same: inspirational, heartwarming, and homey stories that make people feel good. Now they detail 10 "focusing strategies" they say they used to get their first books published and to build on their success. The authors include new stories and their own personal anecdotes to show the importance of having successful habits, creating balance, maintaining confidence, building excellent relationships, etc. David Rouse --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book has shown me that anybody with a pulse can be successful. Bottom line, if you follow what this book says, you will achieve your goals guaranteed!
While many of the ideas--the danger of busyness, differing leadership styles, and the need for clarity of vision are longstanding concepts, the author brings them together and fleshes them out with fresh, practical and achievable applications.
Bottom line: Kudos for a broad, yet approachable text surveying modern leadership ideals.

Don't get me wrong, you're not going to read this book and have your life miraculously change. I believe the authors say it best in their final words. "All the strategies we have shared with you really work. They can dramatically change your life for the better. But only if you choose to use them".
The book focuses on ten strategies to help you reach your maximum potential in your business, personal and financial life. Some of these strategies may sound simplistic to you at first, but putting deodorant on a fever blister to draw out the moisture sounds simplistic too. The point is, simple can often achieve the results your looking for. There's no sense in over-complicating things.
Each of the ten strategies are outlined in their own chapter and followed by practical "action steps" to coach you along. You will find other exercises as well. I recommend buying this book along with a spiral notebook. You'll need it.
If you're ready to take actionable steps in improving every aspect of your life, this book is definitely for you.
