One thing that is so common when you meet with another successful individual, maybe somebody who is where you want to be is they are readers.

Are you are reader?

I love to read and absorb books like they are about to explode but I wasn’t always that way!

Reading used to feel like chore, something I had to “fit” into my day. Then I found Audible and everything changed – books became something I could do with the boys splashing around in the pool, taking a walk in the evening or going through my morning routine.

After listening to books I learned the value of picking up one and reading it. How reading, taking notes, making highlights actually forms different neuro-pathways in our brains – we learn differently when we read!

There are so many out there to read and each is designed with an outcome in mind. Some teach us lessons, how to overcome challenges, or simply entertain.  The great part is we get to decide what we let in by the books we read!

It’s said that the person you’ll become 5 years from now will be the sum of two things: the people you meet (or surround yourself with) and the book you read. Think about that really hard for a few minutes. 

Write down all the people you’ve met and books you’ve read. How have you changed because of them over the last 5 years?

Bill Gates reads 50 books per year which breaks down to about 1/week. If you want the success of others simply follow in the path they’ve already walked on.

Find out the person you most want to emulate and have a similar lifestyle then find out who they hang around and what books they read. 

Warren Buffett reads between 600-1000 pages per day! You’d think when you are one of the riches men in the world you might think “you know everything.” And that is their secret, they believe they never will so learning is part of living!

So, if you want to have the success you deserve reading and learning daily NEED to be part of your routine – if not success will simply not happen. What if you just committed to 15 minutes per day for 30 days? We all need to start somewhere!

You don’t need to “find” 15-30 minutes to read, simply replace something you are already doing. Maybe instead of watching your show at night you read instead. Or you could wake up 15 minutes earlier, go to bed 15 minutes later. Read during your lunch break instead of scrolling on Facebook.

Below you’ll find a selection of books I’ve read over the past few months and they have all impacted my life in some way. A few made me cry, some made me contemplate what I really want out of life and all of them had something to teach me.
