TYMNHS: Motivational book How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be

How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be by Jack Canfield is a motivational book that I have gone over a few times. Usually I have a like-dislike relationship with self-help books because I feel it can be useful if applied in the right manner and there is no one-size fit all solution to the challenges that each individual may face. I glean such books for what is relevant to me at the time that I am reading. People change, their situations may change as well as the challenges they might encounter so the wisdom would be in doing your best with the resources and opportunities available to you.


There are 25 principles of success listed in this book. The most interesting one is using a dream board for your goals. I do believe strongly in the principle of positive thoughts shaping a person towards success. I also believe writing down goals is a tangible way of engraining your dreams internally and sending it out to the universe. Positivity has a way of reverberating back into your life, not immediately and not today perhaps, but eventually it does pay back twofold, in ways you could not have imagined.

What are some of your dreams and goals…have you written them down? How do you feel about self-help books? I hope that you will give this book a read and hope that it brings you closer to your future successes. Thank you for reading!

  1. Every December I re-write my hopes and dreams for the coming year. I’m a strong believer in the dreaming and goal-setting process. I’m more of a Steven Covey person than a Jack Canfield person, but I’ve gleaned wisdom from many sources. How well I’ve used that wisdom is another question entirely! Thanks for the post.

    1. I have read Steven Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People as well and I think that is more well known (and perhaps more liked) of the two books. Still as you said, wisdom is wisdom.. only if applied effectively 😊

  2. I have a kinda dumb habit of reading too many self-help books. Like, one day I think I got two or three from the library. Don’t think it’s a good idea to read too much about things like that. They haven’t really helped..
