It is cold, snowy, windy, and minus eleven in my neck of the woods. As such, I thought I would pair a delicious bowl of chicken soup with some wonderful Jack Canfield quotes.

Sometimes we just need a reminder.

I hope you enjoy.

People who ask confidently get more than those who are hesitant and uncertain. When you’ve figured out what you want to ask for, do it with certainty, boldness and confidence. Don’t be shy or feel intimidated by the experience. You may face some unexpected criticism, but be prepared for it with confidence. — Jack Canfield

The longer you hang in there, the greater the chance that something will happen in your favor. No matter how hard it seems, the longer you persist, the more likely your success. — Jack Canfield

Self-esteem is made up primarily of two things: feeling lovable and feeling capable. — Jack Canfield

You can’t heal what you don’t acknowledge — Jack Canfield

For every reason it’s not possible, there are hundreds of people who have faced the same circumstances and succeeded. — Jack Canfield

I believe that people make their own luck by great preparation and good strategy. — Jack Canfield

If you are not moving closer to what you want, you probably aren’t doing enough asking. And you’re probably not asking the single most important question that can help you achieve a higher level of success and personal fulfillment: How am I doing? — Jack Canfield

Thank you, Jack Canfield, for these inspirational and soul enriching quotes.
