KEEP READING

All successful people agree that reading is the key to master your life and expand your knowledge extremely fast but, internalising it is what will cause you to act on the knowledge you gained.

“I thought to myself, ‘I am wiser than this man neither of us knows anything that is really worthwhile, but he thinks he has knowledge when he has not, while I, having no knowledge, do not think that I have. I seem, at any rate, to be a little wiser than he is on this point I do not think that I know what I do not know.”
~ Socrates

Just reading isn’t what it takes to understand the content, you must study every relevant chapters and paragraphs in order to internalise the information.

Audio-books are as effective as physical books depending on your abilities to absorb information. So no matter the source of information, you must read or listen with your emotions.

There are millions of books published to meet all reading needs in all topics possible but you should keep a list of 16 favorite books that really have a positive impact in your life so you can read them constantly. Each time an information is read, it has different meaning compared to when you last read so that shows us the importance of repetition.

The more you read the more you train your mind to effectively use and apply the information as you develop new habits that will lead you naturally to take action and increasing your chances to succeed.

Become a master of absorbing good information from all sources and rejecting the bad ones that will only get you distracted in life.

Stay focused and stay sharp but always putting yourself in a relaxed state of mind.

To your greatest potential,
Renato Marques
