About SUCCESS Talks
Each new day brings new challenges and struggles. It’s a natural part of life to understand that much of that is out of our control. But we can control how we respond to those challenges, using best-selling author Jack Canfield’s approach: E + R = O (event plus response equals outcome). For many years, Canfield has studied what makes successful people different, combining research with lessons from his own personal struggles, in the New York Times best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul© series. In this conversation with former SUCCESS Publisher Darren Hardy, Canfield discusses how facing the trials of life (known and unknown) can be daunting, but with some planning and a little courage, we can all find our way through to the good times.
