Jack Canfield doesn’t just write about inspiration: he is one himself. From the thousands of Chicken Soup for the Soul stories tugging at our heartstrings to the motivational seminars urging us to be the best we can be, Canfield has paved a road to success that is both feasible and specific to each of our individual needs.
Chicken Soup for the Soul by Jack Canfield
Along with his writing partner Mark Victor Hansen, Jack Canfield made a name for himself with the insanely popular series in the nineties. That success continued on into the millennium, but the feel-good stories were a good way to make a name for himself.
They were successful from the start, but why? It’s not like he was writing about celebrities or CEOs or world leaders or any other really important people. But maybe therein lies the story of their success; not with the extraordinary personages we view only from the glossy magazine covers, but the everyday men and women; ordinary on the outside with the inner strength of David facing Goliath.
Jack Canfield took his healing home remedies to the next level by personalizing the inspiration. He targeted specific groups and – whether it was by age or profession or circumstance – the result is always a collection that restores our faith in the human race and leaves us on the brink of tears.
