Point of Views.

Unless you are a genius with an established technocrat intellectually, reading is a must in order to recognize your core values if you want to be succeed.

In "Read & Grow Rich" written by Burke Hedges, you will know how the hidden power of reading can make you richer in all areas of your life. According to Hedges, in this book you're going to read about dozens of people from all backgrounds. 

Hedges interestingly rising the contradictory facts of two different hemispheres of human being.

  • Some were born with silver spoon in their mouth. Others were born on the wrong side of the tracks. 
  • Some came from broken homes. Others grew up with two loving, nurturing parents. 
  • Some were born with near-genius IQ's. Others were born with average intelligence, at best. 
  • Some were born handsome or pretty. Others were plain or even ugly 
  • Some were born free. Others to slavery. 
  • Some were black....Some were white.....Some were men.....Some were women....and so on.

But every single person featured in these page has one thing in common: They all dramatically improved their lives by reading.

The reason why reading becomes a power to succeed, is because it transforms us.

What a conclusion made by Hedges that I couldn't oppose with any found reason. He then explained what he means by 'reading can make you richer'. 

Here what he said: 'You see, reading, like no other single activity, levels the playing field of life, so to speak. It's the great equalizer. Reading transforms us from who we are right now......to who we can become in the future. And when we are transformed even slightly, we're richer than we were the day before.

It's my sincere hope that this book will ignite your passion for reading, which is, in turn, will empower you to discover your special talents and then use those talents to become all you can be.

Ignite yourself with this book to sharpening your ways of thinking and with your new mind set, your life will be transformed as you want it to be.

I couldn't agree more than what Hedges had said. I am at my current better status than my previous poor being, is because my reading habits. And I think, Hedges brings this topic forward because he himself has gone through it. Let's have a look at what I mean.

Hedges said: 'One day my sister-in-law-----fed up with my complaining and sensing potential in me that even I didn't recognize----handed me a copy of Og Mandino's The Greatest Salesman in the World. It was the turning point of my life. Mandino's book inspired me to quit my dead-end job and to seek a position selling cellular phones. Within a year of my first sale, I had open my own cellular business, and, I'm proud to say, I've been a successful entrepreneur ever since.'

What a turning point, just by reading! Prove it yourself. Get the book and check how true it is. Hedges will bring you to a new level of knowing, just by reading his book ”Read & Grow Rich”. He also provides many quotations that surely will encourage you to dig more of hidden treasures within you just by reading.

Scheme the reading for the best.

I've been feeling guilty for not mentioning or informing my visitors of what the essence of the Og Mandino's book which had inspire Hedges life. Here are the 10 Scrolls summarized by Hedges.

  • Scroll  1: Today I begin a new life.
  • Scroll  2: I will greet this day with love in my heart.
  • Scroll  3: I will persist until I succeed.
  • Scroll  4: I am nature's greatest miracle.
  • Scroll  5: I I will live this day as if it were my last.
  • Scroll  6: Today I will be master of my emotions.
  • Scroll  7: I will laugh at the world.
  • Scroll  8: Today I will multiply my value a hundredfold.
  • Scroll  9: I will act now.
  • Scroll 10: Henceforth, I will pray, but my cries for help will be cries for guidance.

I remembered when I red this book (The Greatest Salesman In The World) long ago, the titles of the scrolls 1, 3, 9 and 10 were always resonating in my heart and my mind that keep me awake in pursuing a better life, and I did.

My Expectation.

No matter you have somebody to help, teach, mentor or advise you or not, reading can be your source of advice, guidance, information at the early stage of developing your life.

  • If you need help, reading. 
  • If you need a teacher, reading. 
  • If you need a mentor, reading. 
  • If you need an adviser, reading. 
  • If you are in trouble, reading.
  • Anything else you can think of, just reading.

It is reading that keep you energized all day, week, month, year or even all your life. Your future good or bad, succeed or fail, rich or poor depends on whether you have the reading habit or not.

Like Ralph Waldo Emerson said: "Many times the reading of a book has made the future of a man."
