Freaking Monday. To most, it is a day of dread! To the successful, it is just another day to take over the world! Monday is my biach! I am really liking these different meanings to the word S.A.V.E.R.S. Such good stuff. Today’s topic will not let you down either.
R=Reading – Remember my two favorite statistics when it comes to reading are, “Stress level goes down 68% when you read 15 minutes a day” and “On average, the people in the top 5% of any profession, read one book per month.” There you have it. Here is another good one for you. “58% of people will not read another book after they finish High School”. What the fureeek? Mark Twain once said that
A person who won't read has no advantage over a person who can't read.
#doctrine. Reading is literally the fast track to transforming your life. It is one of the most immediate ways for acquiring knowledge, ideas, and strategies you need to get to where you want to go.
“The key is to learn from the experts.” Learning from those who have done what you want to do is extremely beneficial to the pathway of your success. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Holly has found an added purpose in life over the last 20 or so days. She is starting a new children’s clothing line. I have sat and watched her over the last couple of weeks listening to youtube videos, reading books, joining groups, signing up for seminars, and the list goes on. Every time I spend some time with her at night, our conversation is filled with how much shiz she has learned that day from STUDYING! And that knowledge is going to fast track her to the success that she wants. There is so much information out there, where the experts can help us get to where we want to go so much faster.
We now live in a day and age that there is no freaking excuse for failure. NONE!
So how much should we read? This book recommends 10 pages per day. So let’s think about this for a second. If we read 10 pages per day, that is 3,650 pages in a year. That is like reading eighteen 200-page self-development books in a year. Please tell me that your life won’t change dramatically in every aspect that you want it to if you read 18 books. Following this concept WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE! Don’t you love hearing me say that. But it will. And it has for me. And it has for millions of other people who understood the value and practiced it. Challenge: 10 pages a day for 21 days. Watch what happens.
Leaders are readers, Cram
