If you want to grow : READ

If you want to grow , if you want to become better, read. Read anything you can get your hands on. READ whenever you have a spare time.

Having daily reading practice is incredibly powerful.

Through books we get to learn the things other people have spent their whole lives learnings. And we can learnt it in a matter of hours.

Book provides access to how other people think, how they’ve achieved great things and provides information on how we too can experience success in the areas that matters most.

Reading is essential for those who seek to rise above the ordinary.

Jim Rohn

Nothing is more powerful than the treasure of knowledge and the way to acquire this treasure is to read as much as you can.

Research has proved that acquiring new knowledge satisfies an individual’s thirst for competence , which makes them eventually happier.

You must develop the habit of reading books that will help you to acquire new skills and as well as to polish your existing skills.

The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.

My Reading Bucket List In 2020

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies . . . The man who never reads lives only one.”

George R.R. Martin

The books , I want to read which i collect them from last 4 years but because of busy schedule of my Engineering and M.Tech studies I didn’t get time to read the book from by bucket list . The list of book , I collected are follow :

  1. 7 habits of Highly effective people by Stephen R. Covey.
  2. The Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz.
  3. Last lecture by Jeffrey Zaslow and Randy Pausch.
  4. The 48 laws of Power by Robert Greene.

But In 2020 , because of Covid-19 lockdown , there are lot of time available to invest in our habits which we didn’t get in day to day life busy schedule. In Maharashtra , India , there are lockdown since from 24 march 2020 .India’s government announced lockdown in India till 31 May 2020. Because of Covid-19 panademic lockdown , Indian Television channel re-telecast their 1988’s show Mahabharat and Ramayan which got record break viewers and huge fan following in the 2020.

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

Dr. Seuss

The books are our best friend , they never leave us in any situation . Sometimes , they perform different role in our life . Books are our teacher , our mentor , our friends . Anytime if you want them with you they are available to you. If we develop reading habit in day-to -day life then after 5 years of reading we are different person . Books develop us tremendously .

Traveling is also one of my bucket list but in 2020 its doesn’t seen easy to travel around state and country. Because of Covid-19 pandemic , The 2020 is worst year for traveler. but the best thing about the books are they let you travel without moving your feet. So the more you read , the more information you get and more knowledgeable you became.

There are some points I noted while reading which I share here .

The author say that ” You can’t get a man physically healthy until you get him spiritually healthy”.

A famous psychologist says , “Prayer is the greatest power available to the individual in solving his personal problem. Its power astonishes me”

The Prayer power seems able even to normalize the aging process , obviating or limiting infirmity and deterioration.

Prayer can freshen you up every evening and send you out renewed each morning.You can receive guidance in problem is allowed to permeate your subconscious , the seat of the forces which determine weather you take right or wrong action.

Prayer has the power to keep your reactions correct and sound. Prayer driven deeply into your subconscious can remake you.
