How Many Books Have You Read Recently?

Learners are earners

For as long as I can remember I have loved reading; in fact, I feel terrible if I don’t read on a daily basis.

Why?

I feel I am stopping myself from learning and growing.

Every time I read a good book, I expand my awareness and find possible solutions to problems I may have or I am being equipped for any possible obstacles I may face in my future.

Do I have to read you might be asking?

To be honest you don’t have to read at all, you could instead listen to an audio or watch a video.

As long as you are learning something new each and every day.

I know life happens and we are busy most of the time; though, if you don’t learn something new a day, do you think you will get results any different to the ones you have got so far?

I will give you my example, I set aside a few minutes a day to read a few pages, normally I aim for 10 pages, sometimes I double that, or when I am short of time I do less, but regardless I read on a daily basis.

How does that knowledge benefit me?

In countless ways, it could be something work related, lifestyle related, marketing related, business related, etc., you see it could be anything, as long as it is important and meaningful to you (let’s be honest novels and mangas don’t count!).

According to some statistics (which I can’t remember exactly) the vast majority of people stop reading as soon as they leave school…

This is insane!

Why would you stop learning?

When you look at top earners, business owners and entrepreneurs they make reading and learning a new skill their number one priority because this aligns them with their goals and move them closer to where they want to be.

Are you 100% satisfied with where you are at the moment?

Do you have too much month left at the end of the pay check?

Do you feel left out when people are being promoted at work?

Are you reading?

Are you learning?

You see, when we read and learn something changes in us, something within and so deep starts to shine that people around us start to notice and resonate with it.

You needn’t read the most sophisticated articles about neuroplasticity or nuclear weapons, but do your best to be current and learn/read about something that will add value to your life.

Are you wasting your time watching TV?

Are you setting a good example to your children by reading on a regular basis?

Do not forget that the little ones around us are watching, by reading we are not only growing and learning but inspiring and raising the bar for others too.

Reading IMHO is a win-win scenario, you learn, you grow, you inspire others and you stay current.

If you aren’t reading anything at the moment, I invite you to start reading a book that is in alignment with a skill you want to learn or work related and notice the difference for yourself.

  1. Ever since I read a stat that said the average CEO reads a book a week, I’ve made it a priority to read just as much. It’s crazy that the average person will only read 3 books after college. I agree with this post, reading is very important:)

  2. Great article about a very important subject. I used to know a woman who never read anything: note I say “USED TO KNOW” : after a few years I realised we had very little in common. I’m a writer and as such I HAVE to read otherwise I stop honing my own skills. So reading is definitely a priority in my day. I currently have 3 books on the go. 2 are research for writing projects that I am working on and the other is a novel: got to have some “downtime”. Yes I do watch some TV most evenings. However, I don’t consider this to be a waste of time: more a case of recharging the batteries. I’m currently working an 11hr day during the week and 4hrs at the weekends so I think I’ve earned a couple of hours an evening not doing much at all.

    1. Well said Acc… what was meant by watching TV is just being a couch potato and nothing else. I find some programmes on TV highly educational and some can be very inspiring too. Love Jorge x

  3. You can call me Nicci – far easier and makes more sense 😉 Didn’t realise that only my Twitter details would appear! I have to confess having the odd couch potato moment especially when the 6 Nations Rugby or the F1 Grand Prix is on: however, 2 very active dogs usually means I’ve also done a few miles of walking as well. Some of the documentaries I’m watching are brilliant and often form the basis for buying a book to read up on the subject. Nicci x
