As I wrote the other day, it’s important to surround yourself with exceptional people, which you can do with books. But there is actually a whole bunch of other reasons on why you should read books.
I loved reading books in my youth and I could spend hours each week reading interesting stories. Just laying in my bed, reading a couple of pages until i fell asleep. When i grew older I bought a TV and stopped reading.
A few years ago I began reading again and it has given me so much. Instead of reading about fiction as I did in my youth I started to read biographies from successful people who shared their knowledge and experiences with me.
Some great reasons
I’m sure you have heard the old saying that you need to learn from your mistakes. I think this is one of the most important lessons you can learn and without mistakes you will never develop. But why make the mistakes that several other people already have made? By reading books you will learn from their mistakes and get experience without having to throw away money.
Another great reason to read books is that they should light a fire inside of you. If you get a bit depressed and doubt your abilities you can read about other success stories and get inspired.
Choose your books carefully
Reading books takes time. Therefore I suggest that you start reading books based on recommendations from people you trust. I suggest that you take a look in the navigation for my library where I review interesting books that I like and recommend.
If you read an interesting book, please send me the title and I will read it.
