Two Strategies You Can Use To Achieve “Effortless Success”

“The formula is simple – do more of what is working, do less of what isn't, and try on new behaviors to see if they produce better results.” – Jack Canfield

Jack is one of those people who has been living what he teaches for decades, and the quote above is the inspiration for today's blog post.

And while most people are familiar with him – from “The Secret” and the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series – most people don't know that Jack actually holds a Guinness World Record for having the most books – seven! – simultaneously on the New York Times Best-Seller list. That's kind of cool. 🙂

One of the biggest secrets to Jack's success is that he's figured out some highly effective strategies for making success “effortless.”

That's not to say Jack doesn't work, it's just that Jack has figured out how to make his work seem like play. He's also found what reduces his resistance to taking consistent effective action towards success.

And one of those strategies you'll learn today is to find what already works in your life and AMPLIFY those working parts.

This is extremely effective for a few reasons:


When we do what works, we're in the zone of our STRENGTH.

As a result, we create a snowball effect where we continue doing more and more of what works, and so the snowball becomes bigger and full of SUCCESS (the working parts) – thus requiring less “effort” to keep that ball rolling down our success hill of life.

Another way to look at this is just think about handwriting. It's probably easiest for you to write with your dominant hand, and it's probably difficult writing with the other one. Just think about how much effort it would take to learn how to write with your weaker hand?


Now consider how many things in your life you may be trying to “force” into a certain way, instead of just looking at what is the most effective and doing more of that?

There's probably lots of areas of your life where you've adopted ineffective habits that create resistance rather than “effortlessness.”

Now that you know what to look for in your life, keep an eye out for times when you may be unconsciously doing this. 🙂


We only have so much “space” in our lives for things.

Whether it's how much food we can fit in our belly, how much time we have in a day, or how effective we can be at a particular task.  No matter how much we improve or expand, as humans, we have physical limitations on what can fit into our lives.

Therefore, when we do what WORKS in our life, we have less space in our lives for the things that don't work.

Here's a quick example to illustrate how we can apply it in our lives to eat healthier…

Usually, the least effective way to eat healthier that is to remove unhealthy foods from our diet. That's because this activates a scarcity mindset and makes us feel like something is being -taken- away from us. Part of us will cling, restrict, and resist.

Instead, try out a few new healthy foods to find one that you like. Then COMMIT to eating that new and likeable food more regularly. Maybe it's a salad or a handful of goji berries… whatever it is, eat it more often.

(whether that's once a week or once a day).

Your body will like it, and over time you will find that you have less room in your belly for the foods that aren't healthy.

You'll also be in an ABUNDANCE mindset by reminding yourself that you are bringing MORE healthy goodness into your life. 🙂

This same principle applies to everything in our life, and especially our habits.  If there's an undesireable habit you want to stop, then introduce new healthier habits into your life that will “crowd out” the bad habits, and at the same time, create that “snowball effect” to keep you moving closer to your desired life, with less and less effort.

Sure, at first it may take a little bit of extra effort to get things going at first. ALL changes of habit require effort on our parts, and especially when we're working with habits that have been with us for years or even decades.

Still, the initial effort is well worth it – because over time, you will inscribe more and more of this “effortless” success in your life.
