“Reading is essential for those who seek to rise above the ordinary.”
I love this quote by Jim Rohn, a great leader and entrepreneur. It goes so strongly with the adage “Readers are Leaders” and the corollary “Leaders are Readers.”
I’ve always been a reader, thanks to my county-librarian Grandma. Growing up in small town Idaho, I was a pretty big deal visiting my grandma behind the big front desk, helping her return books from the book bin. I learned all about the Dewey Decimal system (and even implemented my own version in my “personal” library in my Grandmother’s attic).
Reading has always been like breathing to me. But I know not all of you feel the same. Who actually has time to sit down and curl up with a book? And not only that, but who wants to read for pleasure after you’ve been reading for work or school all day?
But to debunk those thoughts and feelings, in my episode today I include some amazing benefits of reading for learning, because it IS true that readers are leaders.
Some of those benefits include:
- Mental stimulation
- Increased knowledge
- Improved writing
- and many more!
Okay, so maybe you don’t consider yourself a Reader or you’d just like to up your game. Lucky for you I have included a FREE summer reading guide to challenge you this summer. Or to just even get you started! I have included a few of my favorites from a variety of genres.
It’s really true that Readers are Leaders and Leaders are Readers, so strengthen your leadership skills by honing your commitment to reading.
