Reading as a Habit of Successful People

“I feel the need of reading. It is a loss to a man not to have grown up among books.” – Abraham Lincoln

Reading is something which can bring you a lot of knowledge and lesson to be practiced in your life. In a book, you can have the privilege to learn about another person’s point of view and experience which can be invaluable for you and your journey in life.

A great book can inspire you in a way that nothing else can.

I remember the book which is one of the most inspiring to me. It was the autobiography of Steve Jobs, who also inspires with his speech, written by Walter Issacson. The book content is about the journey of Steve Jobs throughout his life, his controversies, how he face problems in his life and how he shaped Apple in becoming one of the greatest company in the world. His relentless pursuit of success and inspiration to people around him are lessons which I still hold and apply to my own life. His speech in Stanford commencement event is also something which inspires me to believe in my dream and try my best to try to realize it.

Reading books can be something which is life changing. A book which inspires a person can make him/her to do the right thing in life and overcome problems with a new state of mind and solutions which are given in the texts. A book can also make learn from what the authors say and feel about something and that can make us richer in terms of point of view about the things which are around us.

The things which we can take from a book can be in variation too. Sometimes, there are tools or methods which are given in a book that can be used right away and help us in solving the problems that we face because of the similarity of the problems that the tools or methods can solve. It can also give us some real life experience from which we can learn from. Books such as autobiography usually have many of these and learning from the people who are being told in the book can help us to avoid their mistakes and do the right thing. It can also give us new mindset as we can learn from the characters which are being introduced probably in a novel, what they do and how they interact with the things around them and also the changing nature that self-improvement books try to bring to our life to make it better.
