UPGRADE Your Mind Today with a GREAT Book
In my post about “FOUR LEVELS/Stages of LEARNING – ANYthing” I stated that a Mentor once told me, “Poor People have Large TV’s, Successful People have Large Libraries.”
One of the top Basic Learning Fundamentals is “Who do you Listen too“. This basic fundamental helps you become focused on what you most desire, through the process of learning via Mentor. It helps you to produce your goals and associated tasks to achieve what you want, out of life or a situation. Books are a strong mentor, as the story reads, you become part of it, learning from the experiences of the people and situations. When you have a desire, a book, can be a great mentor.
Below are a list of important books in my life, suggested to me by people who ‘HAVE’ what I want, ‘DO’ what I would like to do and are situated where I would like to ‘BE’. Many of these books have been referred to me by various people I have met in my life since 2010. At first I was not aware of the power of the lessons I would learn, even more shocking was what I learned when I read the book again. Another mentor told me, “You will be the same person 5 years from now, except for the books you read and the people you associate with.” This quote took me a while to understand, especially after hearing it from many different sources. It basically means, you will go through life, life will give you experiences, from what you see, read, listen too and who you interact with and if you let it, any one or combination will influence you or your path in life to change for the better or worse, it’s your choice.
That’s a pretty powerful statement, it took me nearly a year to understand that simple quote and to be able to break it down in to what I understood. I found that true to be the case when I started reading the list of books below, the first time I read a given book, I Always Learned something I DID NOT KNOW Before. When I started interacting with people who regularly read any given book on the list below, and then read the book again, I learned something NEW, AGAIN. So it is true that you will change based on Who you Listen to, What you Hear, What you See and What you Experience, each one will lead you to more learning and new experiences.
