"The best advice I ever got was that knowledge is power and to keep reading." David Bailey
The world continues to change, but one thing that’s constant is the importance of reading. A book is the words, ideas, and mindset of the person who wrote it. Today’s treasure is about Reading. Interpretation can change your life. How? Below I will share with you how reading can help you discover the magical portal that connects the past with the present.
To me, reading is essential because if someone can read, that person can learn anything about everything. I am currently reading two books, one is High-Performance Habits by Brendon Burchard, and the other book is Introducing NLP by Joseph O’Connor & John Seymour. My choice in books varies, but mostly I like to read personal development books that help me grow. There are countless genres out there; reading enables you to increase your vocabulary, learn new things, and escape into a beautiful journey developing your imagination.
Have you ever stopped to think that reading a book is submerging yourself into someone else's world? You are tapping into their thoughts, ideas, and imagination. How fascinating is that? If you are struggling with reading, because it bores you or you can’t seem to read a couple of pages without dozing off, you can also look into audiobooks. The important message here is for you to create a mindset that allows you to explore the world of reading.
What you will learn when you dive into the magical world of reading:
Better Writer and Speaker
When you read, it can increase your vocabulary and helps you write more effective. If you are looking into public speaking, reading helps you by discovering your voice and develop different ways on how you communicate.
Increase Your Knowledge
You will learn something new. If you want to learn about finances, there are books to help you, if you're going to learn how to communicate better, there are books on that, and if you want to expand your imaginations, there are books that help you imagine a magical world, like J.K. Rowling with Harry Potter.
Discover New Things
Not everyone gets to travel, but if you decide that you wanted to learn more about Hawaii and its culture and spirituality, some books will help you discover their fascinating culture. It will transport you into their beauty. You need to explore what you are interested in and find a book that will help you learn more about that given subject.
In summary, turn to books to satisfy your hunger to learn more and become more, now find something interesting and valuable to read, there are countless of magazines, books, ebooks, the internet, blogs and much more. And like I suggested, you can turn to audiobooks and enjoy a good read while you commute or exercise. The point I’m driving home today is to start reading and feed your mind the wonders of this world. For a transformational mindset chat, contact me today.
