A real life-transforming habit

27 April, 2020

Reading is life-transforming and can help us achieve our full potential and lead a richer life. Reading can transform your life because the more you read, the more you know. The more you read, the more you can imagine. The more you read, the better you understand other people and this can help enhance your relationships and consequently improve your life.

When the message of a book is rightly phrased, it could pass your defences, enter your heart and explode silently and effectively within your mind and change you from inside out. The Bible is generally accepted by Christians as God’s word to humankind. That being the case, one could say God chose to communicate his thoughts to humanity through a book. Millions are known to have been greatly inspired and transformed by it.

A reader today; a leader tomorrow. ( W. Fusselman)

I suggest that the only books that influence us are those for which we are ready and which have gone a little further down our particular path than we have gone ourselves. (E. M. Forster)

There are a few simple habits you can cultivate in life that really have a potential to change your life; reading good books is one of such habits. Reading has such a capacity to transform a life; it has the ability to unlock a wealth of treasure and greatness from within an individual. Through reading you can rub minds with the greatest thinkers of all time. You can share in the wisdom of the greatest minds that ever walked the surface of the earth simply by reading their books. Through reading you access the knowledge and wealth of wisdom of the author’s mind. You also become a partaker of the rapturous moments of inspiration enjoyed by the writer. You can even experience and enjoy ‘divine’ moments of insight akin to a spiritual experience, simply by reading a book.
