Reading is important for us to grow and develop. Reading helps you have a wider understanding, opens your thought process and helps you to grow as a person. If you are weak in a certain area of your life, there is a book out there that can help to strengthen that weakness, if you are struggling in your business, your focus, your weight, with smoking, with leading others, with managing or talking to people, hey guess what, there is a book out there to help.
Many books are written out of experience, and nine times out of ten, there are others who have had a similar experience to you already and have written about it. Why re-invent the wheel?
All the books which I have listed below I have personally read and can recommend. They have helped me through obstacles in my personal and business life, and has helped me to improve my income and outlook on life. It is said that to perfect any skill you have to have worked on it for over 10,000 hours. It has also been said that you can only earn as much as your personal development. The right books will propel you and your business to new heights.
All successful leaders and business persons read at least 24 books a year, this equates to 2 or more books a month.
