Jack Canfield: Well, I always say that success or money amplifies who you already are, so if you are someone who is an idiot and you make a lot of money, you can be a really big idiot, but what happened for me was that I spent a lot of time before I was successful working on myself, taking lots of seminars.
I think, one year, I went to 38 weekend workshops from Gestalt therapy to Transactional Analysis, meditation, yoga, Tai-Chi, you name it and literally did a lot of clearing out of as much of my ego and as much of my self-defeating behaviors, etc., that I could.
So, by the time I was successful, I donâ€™t feel like I am any different now than I was when I became successful, other than I have a lot more money and a lot more influence. ///
I think the main thing is to keep the horizon ahead of you always a little higher than what you are and keep looking toward that which you want to create and eventually, you find yourself standing on top of a mountain because you took one step at a time.
