What’s up! How are you doing today?
Great – the grind is on, and it is another Workable Wednesday. I had a moment yesterday, I was thinking about how far I have grown to get to this point in my life.
I thought about the many steps forward I have taken on my journey since the first book I read seriously.
Where would my life be if I would have never discovered that first profound book?
I would be in a desolate and hopeless place. I am grateful for the light I have now, the light I can share with you through this blog.
The first book that sparked my flame was an audio copy of The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson. I found it on YouTube so I am very grateful for that experience.
The funny thing is – I actually thought I knew a fair amount about the world and understood life on a deep level however this first book opened my mind to what I truly did not know.
Soon I began to ponder the possibilities in life, I began to ask and answer open ended questions such as:
Where do you want to go in life?
Where do you want to grow in life?
This could be physical, mental, spiritual, etc.
I also discovered the powerful question:
Who is successful that has what you want already?
As a result of this first profound book, I was awakened to take immediate action, I started using a journal, and I have also found thought mentors who I am currently modeling to obtain similar results.
Books are Portals to Another World
Great books offer a unique perspective and they invite the reader to deeply immerse themselves into the stories and message.
On this blog and in life I am primarily a nonfiction consumer, so I am talking about nonfiction books in this post.
When you grab a great lesson book, it will allow you to focus your energy on winning more in life.
Books are magnificent! This world of knowledge is waiting for you to discover and use it.
Humans Live Within These Pages
I am mostly interested in books that are well acclaimed and acknowledged as valuable to the people I look up to.
My diet of books usually has stories that allude to lessons in life. These books educate the reader on how to achieve certain desired outcomes (and also how to avoid undesired outcomes).
I am happy and very grateful to discover the vast variety of experiences and wisdom in the 50+ books I have read in the last year.
Remember, you only need ONE book to ignite your amazing journey or to revitalize the one you are now.
Books can bring more light into your life because nonfiction often shares how other humans have received enlightenment.
Rapid Reading, Learning, Applying, and Resulting
The more you read, the more you know.
The more you know, the more you can learn.
The more you can learn, the more you can apply the lessons to change your life for the better.
I have significantly increased my reading speed since my first few books and now I have a process for reviewing books and applying the notes to my life.
For the first time I am utilizing a study group to learn and use the knowledge to get what I truly want out of life.
I am a strong believer that the right books can change your life in a significantly empowering manner. With that being said, please join me in selecting and reading your book!
My current book is Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.
If you are having trouble selecting your book, I would like to suggest that you find someone in this world you want to be like. Then, identify which books they have read which have impacted their development in life.
Pick one of those books and buy it! It is totally worth a better and more enlightened future for you. I would like to know what your next big book is in the comments. That is all, have a fantastic day!
