Reading is the Road to Success

Reading goes hand in hand with self improvement. Are you one of those people who just reads Facebook updates and Tweets? Have you made sitting and reading a real book a habit? Well, if you are one of the people, who do not make reading a habit regularly, you are missing out. Reading has a number of important benefits:

Learn New things.

By reading, you come across new things, experiences and solutions to life problems and sometimes you might even pick up a new way of thinking. Reading makes you live many lives through the eyes of different people and surroundings than the one you have been born with . The more knowledge you have, the better equipped you are to take any challenge that you’ll face.

You are also learning from others and their experiences and lessons. How matter how hard an author tries to write to make things seem beautiful or la la land, their real life always somehow seeps into their writing. Learning from the mistakes of others mean you won’t commit that mistake yourself.

Widens your view of the world.

Helps you understand the world in a better way.  By reading a book or article you may learn something about another country or be able to understand perspectives of different traditions and cultures and this helps you become a more global citizen. #worldpeace

Boosts & Focus

When you’re reading – whether it is a story or a book of facts – you are concentrating solely on the one thing – helps increase you brain’s power of concentration. While reading, your’e completely silent, which increases your ability for your brain to focus more easily and deeply. This ability will help you in all aspects of life.

Memory is improves as you remember an variety of characters, their backgrounds, ambitions, history and the various sub-plots. Strangely every new memory you create forges new synapses and strengthens your existing ones. That assists in helping restore short – term memory and stabilises your mood swings.

In our social world, our attentions is draw in  million different directions at once as we multi task through everyday. In a single 5 minute span, the average person will divide their time between working on a task, checking their email, chatting with another person via any means, checking their phone and interacting with others surrounding them. This type of behaviour causes your overall stress levels to rise and lowers your productivity ( procrastination) .

Reading something, allows the rest of the world to fall away then you can just immerse yourself in every single fine detail your’e absorbing. Try to read for 15-20 minutes a day, if that doesn’t work for you try 10 pages in the morning or something like that – you’ll be  surprised at how much more focused you are once you get to work.

The road to success is not straight. There is a curb called Failure that you run over from time to time, and a loop called Confusion that you have to navigate through. There are speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, and caution lights called Family that may complicate your journey. You will have flats called jobs that can be blowout to your passion and a fog to your vision. But, if you pull out your spare called Determination and are powered by an engine called Perseverance, you are well on your way. Trust in an insurance plan called Faith, and a driver named will power and you will make it to a place called Success.
