Why bother with reading books? The answer is obvious: to grow as a person. But do we believe that? Maybe not. After all, a lot of people, adults and children alike, don't read books. Many who do read, only read for entertainment.
If you don't believe that reading can help you achieve your goals, learn something new, or somehow have a positive impact in your life, you won't bother with it. But reading the right books can make a difference. Here's why:
Think of a person who has rubbed off on you. You spent so much time together, that you started saying the same things, acting the same way, and sharing interests. You are bound to become like the people you spend your time with.
You have the opportunity to spend time with some of the most successful, creative, and intelligent people in history: by reading their books. And books have been written on nearly every known subject, by all kinds of people, from every country. Surround yourself with these giants, and you will grow to be like them.
The first step is believing that books can make a difference in your life. The next step is finding a great book.
