Reading is a Habit of Successful People
Reading makes the list of the habits of highly successful people every time! Regardless of the study, or well documented research, taking time out to read everyday is always at the top, right there among the regular practices of the most powerful, the most wealthy, and the most successful.
The greatest gift you can ever give yourself is the gift of reading. 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 spurn your level of thinking, along with your imagination and creativity. You have to read and think in a quiet space on a daily basis in order to change your world significantly. Reading books will engage your brain unlike any other activity. The written word is a powerful source of information. If you are not taking in the written word in the form of a book on some sort of platform, then I’m going to guarantee that your growth is stunted. Reading stimulates your brain on a higher level then listening to a podcast, reading an article on the internet, 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!!!!
