Books are my go-to when I’m facing difficult problems.
(Well… and books are my go-to for fun too.)
(Heck, they’re just my go-to.)
Learning and reading are shortcuts to life’s biggest problems.
What would you rather do: lose all your money, or read a book about someone losing all their money and how to NOT do that. Sure there’s nothing like learning from your own practical experiences, but there’s also nothing like learning to avoid pitfalls we all can make when we’re stumbling towards a dream.
Starting a business is great. But what about starting a business testing a personal MBA you’ve developed by learning from the books of the greatest entrepreneurs in history? Better.
Books teach you how to think well.
Books won’t necessarily give you the answers to the test (aka life), but they will give you a more capable understanding of the questions. When you read a book, you’re not just learning the content, your learning how the writer thinks. And if a book resonates with you, you’re absorbing ways to think about the world the way the author does.
When I’m facing a career change or a health issue, money anxiety, happiness, and fulfillment problem, I seek books or lessons from people who have been there done that and come out thriving and better than they were.
We are as only as capable as we think we are.
Having a more meaningful, inspirational, financial free life will be ours when we adopt a more capable way of thinking and taking actions.
Learn from the best. Absorb lessons from their wins and loses.
