You don’t put your valuables within easy reach of children. Similarly life puts valuable things on higher levels, so you can reach them by the books you stand upon. Success is not what you achieve, it’s what you attract by the person you have become; the person you become through reading, learning, self-development and personal growth. Be careful not to neglect doing the small things in your life that make the big things happen. According to the book ‘Read and soar’ by Yomi Akinpelu, reading is a simple habit that can make extraordinary things happen.
You are the same today as you’ll be in five years except for two things: the books you read and the people you meet. (Charlie ‘Tremendous’ Jones)
Jack Canfield, the author of Chicken Soup for the Soul, said he had read over 3000 books by reading a small daily ‘dose’ every day. He is in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most number-one books on the Best Seller’s List at the same time. The daily habit of reading transformed the life of Terri from having no goals, no vision, no money. Less than ten years later, she is an author of many books, international speaking engagements, a You Tube channel with millions of viewers, money in the bank, lovely home and much more. She is not alone; many thousands have had their lives transformed by the simple habit of reading great books.
Reading is a basic tool in the living of a good life. (Mortimer Adler)
