“LEADERS ARE READERS”
If you read one book per month, that will put you into top 1% of income earners, but if you read one book a week (52 a year), this will make you one of the most educated, smartest, most capable and highest paid person in your field. I had a goal to read one book a month last year after hearing that statement and when the year ended, I ended up reading 42 books. Understand that this was from someone who was diagnosed with a learning disability and hated reading. So if I can do it, anyone can. Reading is recommended by some of the most successful people in the world. Russell Brunson reads a book a week and suggests that if you want massive success, you do the same. Bill Gates, Oprah, Warren Buffett are just a few of the most successful and wealthiest people in the world, and they read every day. If you want to be successful and grow your Genius foundation, then you should follow what successful people do. READ EVERY DAY!
“If you are going to get anywhere in life, you have to read a lot of books.”
The first book that laid my genius foundation and changed my life was “Unlimited Power” by Anthony Robbins. This book opened my mind to “NLP” Neuro-Linguistic – Programming. How language, both verbal and non-verbal, affect our nervous system. One of the reasons reading is so essential is because it fills your foundation with dreams, goals, aspirations, and knowledge to go, have, or become whatever you desire. You must believe it to achieve it.
When I was labeled dumb, I allowed myself to believe I couldn’t read, that there was no point for me to try. If I had stayed in that thought process, Tony Robbins would have never changed my life; Napoleon Hill wouldn’t have shown me the power of the mind, Robert Kiyosaki would have never shown me the four quadrants. Even though every person who labeled me dumb, slow, stupid would have told me I couldn’t read, I had to push through the shame and pain. Now I am proud to say I’m a contributing writer for this magazine, I’ve been featured in two other books and now Author of my book Genius Within.
You learn to write better by reading. You learn to read better by writing. Reading and writing work together to improve your ability to think!
Reading does, in fact, make us more intelligent. Research shows that reading not only helps with fluid intelligence but with reading comprehension and emotional intelligence as well. When you read, you make smarter decisions about yourself and those around you.
