This year marked the 10th year of a lot of things in my life; I’m getting married with my 10 years sweetheart, i got into the stock market 10 years ago, I graduated high school and went into the society/reality of life 10 years ago, and I left home to live on my own 10 years ago…etc
Sometimes it’s so amazing to see how much i have grown, from a lazy, unproductive, unsuccessful person with extremely negative attitude toward life, to being taught with so many lessons in life, and finally cultivated my own path of prosperity now.
And all these, from a life of gambling trading, excessive overweight, chronicle sex addicted, heavy smoking and drinking - to a fund manager, a fitness guru (self proclaimed) and a loving husband (soon to be), all comes down to one thing: the desire to change and the sustained motivation to keep me going.
There were so many people that had helped me directly and indirectly; positively and negatively. Because remember, what don’t kill you make you stronger, and in my case, all the doubts, laughers and hatreds have really gotten me very far - to prove how good I could be, and how wrong people were.
But the one thing that really helped me, changed me in all aspect of life - is the knowledge from books.
Reading, is perhaps the most powerful tool known to any mankind.
It certainty changed my life.
The more I read, the smarter I become, the more life puzzles are solved, the more mentors I encounter, the more money I make, more health i have, better relationships in life…etc
All the wonderful things in life can be realized, if you truly understand the power of reading.
….and unfortunately, that was how our education had failed us. Because most people, once out of their last educational institutions, they stop reading.
They do the same thing over and over again, everyday complaint about life, complaint about going no where, and yet, they are being completely ignored to know that the powerful tool to change their life is just a habit of reading.
So, READ, my friend.
