INTERNATIONAL author of more than 500 million copies of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, Jack Canfield is coming to Jamaica on November 10 for the Success Summit at the Jamaica Conference Centre for a full day of motivation.

It is being hosted by Alicia Lyttle, Andrew Reid, Paul Bryan and the Duane Lue Fung team at InspireMe!

In preparing for a day with one of the most powerful motivational speakers in the world, Canfield has asked prospective participants to “take time now to make a list of the things that you want that you don't ask for at home, school, or work. Next to each one, write down how you stop yourself from asking. What is your fear? Next, write down what it is costing you not to ask. Then write down what benefit you would get if you were to ask.”

The conference will draw Jamaicans from around the island who are ready to make a change with Canfield. And by ensuring that you bring your “ask”, the day will no doubt be powerful and resonate long after the conference is over, said the organisers.

“For more than 40 years, Jack has been training and coaching entrepreneurs, educators, corporate leaders, and people from all walks of life (and of all ages, cultures and backgrounds) how to create the life and results they desire, and he can do the same for you,” said a release from the organisers.

As the originator of the #1 New York Times best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul series, which has sold more than 500 million copies in 47 languages, landed him in The Guinness Book of World Records for having seven books simultaneously on the New York Times Bestseller List. He is a featured teacher in the movies The Secret and The Tapping Solution,and has appeared on more than 1,000 radio and television programs.

So how does “the ask” relate to nation-building? Being able to ask correctly is how people become more productive. Yet, people hold themselves back. According to Canfield, “anyone with children will be able to relate to what I am saying. Kids ask all day long! 'Mom, can I have this, go there, or stay up late, please, please, please? They can be relentless. But if you grew up in a family like mine, where 'children were meant to be seen and not heard' asking became harder and harder to do. By the time we're adults, we've forgotten how to ask, or are too ashamed to share what it is we really want. The good news is that these patterns can be relearned and overcome.”

Now some may say that as a nation we know how to beg. And that is not what “the ask” is about. Begging can be considered desperate while asking is more strategic.

According to the release, moving beyond “the ask”, Canfield will introduce his Law of Attraction System, “as your personal road map to discovering the life of your dreams — the key to living the Law of Attraction”. Canfield will guide the audience each step of the way with his time-proven formula explained in his comprehensive programmme.

And the team of Internet Income Jamaica and THINK GROW LEAD, who joined up to create the InspireME conference platform, is creating the upcoming November 10 Success Summit on Canfield's Success Principles. Canfield explained that the Success Principles, contains 64 powerful principles for success and is one of the most powerful guidebooks for successful living ever written. “Further, for those who attend the upcoming Success Summit and following the principles outlined, it doesn't matter if your goals are to be the top sales person in your company, become a leading architect, lose weight, become a better parent, increase confidence, buy your dream home or make millions of dollars.

“Beyond the day of empowerment, the event comes with the benefit of access to the Internet Income Jamaica's workshop on digital marketing,”said the release.
