Why Leaders Read.

Do a little research on the richest people in the world. You will notice that they all share one thing in common. Despite differences in the language they speak or the industry in which they made their wealth, where they live, how they live, or their core strategies for success — they all enjoy reading.

They don’t just enjoy it.

They set aside time each day to do it.

To learn. And grow. Evolve.

They aren’t doing research or cramming for a test. They understand the power of learning something new.

They aren’t just curious by accident.

They are constantly filling their minds with new ideas, strategies, and thinking that allows them to expand beyond their own preconceived notions of what is possible.

You would benefit from doing the same.

Be deliberate about reading something new. Spend a few minutes each day filling your mind with new ideas and inspiration for the challenges ahead.

Readers become leaders.

If that’s what you want to be, that’s what you’d better start doing.
