Teaser Tuesday: Success Principles by Jack Canfield

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Today's teasers come from The Success Principles by Jack Canfield. I've actually been reading this book since the beginning of the year. My plan was to read one chapter per day. I would probably have only read 20 chapters a month, and it's a thick book. It would have been at least three months. But life's been hectic and I'm only now nearing the end. That said, it's one of the best, most inspiring, most profound books you could ever read. So many great lessons!
"I believe you have inside you a core genius--some one thing that you love to do and do so well that you hardly feel like charging people for it. And if you could make money doing it, you'd make it your lifetime's work. Successful people believe this, too. That's why they put their core genius first. They focus on it--and delegate everything else to other people on their team." (pg. 277)
What are you reading this week?
