Read less for better success | Willem Gous

Read less for better success

If you are serious about getting somewhere in life then you must read, that is a given. Reading gives you a new perspective and grows your understanding. I have been on my personal development journey for more than 10 years and I have read A LOT during that time. But this past December I did something different. I read 6 books and read each book no less than 6 times. I dedicated time to the study and application of what the books said, and the results were amazing. I broke through mental barriers I have fighting against for 3 years. I just realised again that reading to fill a check list has little value because we barely understand or even get time to apply and change our lives. Anyway, there is TOO many books anyway, we will never get through them, not in a lifetime. I once read that someone doing their PHD read 80 books for that PHD. Why not pick your top 100 books that are aligned with what you want to be and achieve in life and then dedicate time and effort to studying and applying what they teach? Imagine reading and being able to apply just the following few books: Mindset – Carol Dweck, Awaken The Giant Within – Anthony Robbins, Good to Great – Jim Collins, The War of Art – Steven Pressfield, The Tao Te Ching – Lao-tzu, The Obstacle Is The Way – Ryan Holiday and the Essays of Ralph Waldo Emerson? Who would you be in 12 months? Where would you be in life, career and finances? Read less for better success.
