Why Don’t We Read More?

Everything that you want to do in life can be found in a book. So why don’t people read more?

Some may say that reading is boring and not stimulating. But I wonder if that person is really reading. I wonder because if a person reads books that will help them to learn more, be more successful, and ultimately grow as an individual, there is no way reading can not be entertaining.

Reading opens your mind to a whole different world. Reading helps you to look beyond your current surroundings, whether it is in your house, neighborhood, or school. Reading helps you to say you can be someone great even if you do not see these great figures around you everyday.

Pick up a book and read about whatever interests you. If you constantly read books on a subject that you are curious about, you will eventually become an expert. Once that happens, people will come and invest in you because they know you are the guru and know what your talking about. It has been said that you can earn a living from anything you like to do.

You may think you have a fascinating idea that no one else has thought of, but in most cases it’s not that unique. And if you do have a unique idea, I pretty sure books can act as a guide to implement your plan. You do not have to reinvent the wheel. There are proven success principles and all can be found in a book.

So many people complain about not making enough money, but they will not put for the effort to learn how to be more effective on the job or how to run a successful business. So many people will complain that they can not make any money in the stock market or real estate. They will make the point that they tried that before and it did not work. But I wonder if they took the time to learn how to invest. And learning how to invest in the stock market or buying real estate in an ongoing process that take years and years to understand and many mistakes to make. So picking up one book won’t be the end all be all. You have to be committed to lifelong learning.

It’s amazing that people play the lottery everyday in hopes of getting rich quick. They spend $10 a day for a 1 in 1,000,000 chance of winning. Instead of using that $10 for a lottery ticket, go to to buy a book. I learned that Amazon is one of the cheapest outlets for books. If you are not sure which books to read, ask!!

Remember, WE ARE CAPABLE. Despite the best educational materials available, despite years of knowledge about how to accomplish any task, we choose to say,

"I can't do that"
"I don't know how"
"There's no one to show me"
"I'm not smart enough"
Most of this can be attributed to early childhood from parents saying,
"That's too much to handle. Let me do it for you"
"Maybe next year you can try when you get older"

BUT, if you think you can do it, know that you're capable, understand that if someone can do it, so you can; and if you don't know, you can learn or someone can teach you, YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU WANT IN LIFE.
