There are many reasons why successful entrepreneurs spend a lot of time reading and investing in their minds. Why, for example, Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Antony Robbins, and Jim Rohn have developed good habits of reading?
Each one of us has areas of strengths and areas that require improvements. It is cruical to identify areas that require improvement and at the same time strenghten areas that are doing well. In this regard, the authors and businessmen I mentioned earlier have put a lot emphasis on reading by relevance and especially reading how-to books to gain more insights and knowledge. Simply put, by reading stimulating thoughts, we will ultimately raise our awarness about the world around us.
The mind has been the factory of all human creations up until now. It is where things are formed through the mental processing of ideas, to shape and give birth to objects in form. Therefore, for it to work, it has to be fed with good nutrients, as if feeding the mental factory with thoughts and ideas. I believe that by leveraging the knowledge that is contained in books and online, we can shortcut the curve of learning and get the results we are after in a short period of time.
Here are some of the best books I have read as well as online sources that I have leveraged to raise my awarness and instill a good mindset to steer me to my destination. In this regard, I have come across The six figure mentors which is a highly rich online hub of digital and virtual knowledge that aims at educating and equipping ambitious entrepreneurs with the tools and skills they need to be successful in the booming e-commerce sphere. Among my favourite books is the famous As a Man Thinketh by James Allen, The Richest Man in Babylon by George.S Clason, The Wisdom and Teaching of Steven R. Covey, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, and Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki.
All in all, invest in yourself. Only you can save you. What you see today is what you'll live tomorrow. Think big and visualize the world the way you want it to be; upgrade your skills and have an appetite and hunger to learn and grow everyday.
