Reading makes the list of the habits of highly successful people every time! Regardless of the research or well documented study, taking time out to read every single day is always at the top of the list as one of the things that highly successful people do. The most powerful, the most wealthy, and the most successful, all read on a regular basis.
The greatest gift you can ever give yourself is the gift of reading a good book. Reading opens up a world to you that you may otherwise never get the opportunity to experience. Your own personal world is only as big as your own personal thoughts. If you want to grow as a person and expand your knowledge or your level of thinking, you must become a reader. Books give you access to other people’s knowledge and, at the same time, expand your level of thinking. Reading also activates your imagination and creativity.
It's good for the soul when you can read and think in a quiet space on a daily basis. Reading books will engage your brain unlike any other activity, and stimulate your brain on a higher level then listening to a podcast, reading an article on the internet, watching YouTube or watching tv. As you learn new concepts and shift your paradigm through reading, spend some time everyday quietly reading in a quiet space that will allow you to concentrate, focus, and reflect on what you’ve read.
Anything you want to read is fine. Whatever will keep you engaged. Whether it's fiction, non-fiction, biographies, science fiction, fun books, history, mysteries, romance novels, or whatever. If you want to be successful, Read, Read, Read!!!!
