Harry Connick Jr. Reveals His Heart and Soul in the September Issue of SUCCESS

DALLAS, Aug. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- With over 25 million albums sold worldwide, three-time Grammy winner and Tony-nominated successful actor Harry Connick Jr. is the embodiment of success. In the September issue of SUCCESS magazine, this triple threat reveals how his hometown remains within him and influences his everyday life.

From playing smoky jazz clubs at age 10 to his multi-platinum jazz albums, Connick has New Orleans jazz in his heart. His soul absorbed the strengths he acquired from childhood triumphs and tribulations. "I don't know whether it is my personality or the point I'm at in my life, but I just don't think of things as being obstacles."

When Hurricane Katrina became the biggest obstacle New Orleans had faced, Connick had no reservations about quickly turning to help his hometown. He inspired the citizens of New Orleans in 2005 and continues to inspire them today with the opening of the Ellis Marsalis Center for Music.

Along with the Harry Connick Jr. cover feature, the September 2011 SUCCESS issue is dedicated to comebacks, featuring inspiring stories from achievers who triumphed after failure. This issue emphasizes that resolve and determination can provide clarity and strength to overcome life's hurdles.

September's issue also highlights Ford's Alan Mulally, who many credit with the resurgence of Ford, and "America's Rabbi" Shmuley Boteach, who tells readers about mental resilience and how to improve everyday life.

And read other real-life stories of American comebacks, sure to inspire and motivate every entrepreneur. 24 Hour Fitness founder Mark Mastrov highlights that there is more to success than simply being a visionary, and the life of legendary broadcaster Paul Harvey is explored. Plus, read how a mistake by Hall of Fame slugger Dave Winfield resulted in a new tradition in baseball.

The SUCCESS CD inserted in each magazine features three achievers who say that it's not the failure that matters, but how you rise and triumph over adversity that signifies character. Publisher Darren Hardy interviews Mel Robbins, author of Stop Saying You're Fine, as she offers her ides for discovering the most powerful you. Rabbi Shmuley Boteach shares insights on how to enrich your life and how it really boils down to one little word that starts with a "C." Also, leadership expert John C. Maxwell talks about how the secret to great leadership is to be impressed by everything around us.
